Sometimes I say, I’m a hillbilly. But then I imagine an image of a big chunky guy with overall’s, missing teeth, and wheat in his mouth.
Sometimes I say, I’m from the boonies. Then I think of “The Goonies” for some reason.
Other times I say I’m from hick-ville. But I hate using the term hick. So how do I describe this beautiful rural place I am from?

I don’t like to say I’m a country girl because at heart I am not. My younger sister is, and I think it is cute. It’s just not me. I use to joke and say I’m a forest girl, mainly because I wanted to be a fairy.
