Everything is really far away from each other. And the only thing in between each other is endless miles of cornfields as far as the eye can see. The midwest can be super isolating. But not like in the montana isolating way where you look at mountains and think “wow this is peaceful”. No here you just feel alone. Keep in mind that I am from Chicagoland area, where it is super easy to say “i love the midwest” because Chicago is a mecca of cool shit in the midwest no thanks to rahm. A good chunk of the midwest is in the rust belt and a lot of cities are dilapidated and falling apart. If you don’t live in those crumbling cities than you probably live in actual toxic wastelands like NWI. Or maybe you live in urban sprawl suburbs AKA cloning cells like the burbs that I am from. If not that, you live all alone in cornfields out in the boonies. There’s honestly not much to do. It’s a sweat stained nightmare. The winters are brutal and the summers are a humidity hell. The midwest is boring as fuck
But that’s what gives the midwest its charm. There’s a reason we have some amazing people and some of the finest punk bands of all time. Because what the fuck else are you going to do out here??
