Right now i live in a semi-rural town in the middle of almost-nowhere. In about a month tho i'm moving to a dutch tourist trap an hour away from Los Angeles.
I live in a shitty council house, but the area isnt usually bad, but intervels of trouble and violence do keep happening.
No! I'm Spamacus!

Out of school I live in the suburbs, but the campus is urban.
Probably my favorite area was in New York. We lived basically one street over from the countryside.
I didn't make it!
I live at the village located on an island which is connected to the main land with the bridge. Not much to say about my place. Large number of population owns small fishing boats which are their main source of income. Some people work in the shipyard which is located on the island. We get many tourists at summer, so we rent apartments. I don`t know what else to say.
I live in a rural area. The closest real town is about 7-8 miles away, and there is a small little town about 3 miles away where i went to school that nobody would ever know about if it were not for Flight 93 crashing there. Seriously, the "town" of shanksville is so small you could drive right through it and never know you were there... (thats happened a lot to people trying to find it)
I look outside in any direction from my house and all i see are fields, or woods, or my neighbors houses of course :p I like it though, i think living in a city would be too crowded for me, i like the big open areas where you can do pretty much anything you want out here, only downside is some things like broadband internet still haven't reached our area yet...

Depends what time of the year it is right now and pretty much runs the range.
I'm not quite sure what I should call this, the area is only a few kilometers from the city centre and the buildings around this one are all also apartment buildings, but this part of the city is mostly suburban in nature, the suburban sort of detached houses and terraced houses start right across the street and across the road in another direction fields stretch a long way to end in a bit of forest, behind which there is some farm buildings, medieval ruins and a river.
Lots of immigrants in those apartment buildings that aren't student apartments, which gives the area a really bad name, but I've never had any problems here, so I assume it is a mix of prejudice against foreigners and prejudice against students, with a flavour of fear of the ugly and smelly nearby rubbish burning plant.
Two pictures to illustrate my dilemma:
A view of a part of the area, out of this only the apartment buildings favoured by immigrants and that forest actually belong to this district.
Some of the student apartment buildings here, all look pretty much alike.
I live in the country.
Well Lord....Ba al....I like Houston Texas...the gas is better priced than about a dozen different places...everythings at arms reach and housing is incredibly cheap...
