No I don't mean like the 1950's, Im talking like Revolutionary war and using an outhouse.
Okay not that extreme, but something about the simplicity of the pre-1900's has always intrigued me and part of me always wished I could experience that sort of life. Where instead of writing behind a laptop, I could be out learned how to survive, and instead of dog filters on snapchat I could be learning to cook over a fire, and wash clothes pre-washing machine days.
Im not saying I would be enjoy it after a week of smelling bad, and using a out-house but the idea of it sounds good to me.
Near where I live is a place called Green Field Village. https://www.thehenryford.org/visit/greenfield-village/
Its an entire town filled with old houses, businesses, farms, and other historical buildings. Something about it has always captured me and I got so swept up in it all. Seeing the "Villagers" (Actors) working in the farms, or in the plantations, or driving those old cars through the streets. Its always been my dream job to work there, and maybe one day I will. Until then walking circles around circles through the town will have to do.
I just imagine how nice it would be to it not even be an option to scroll endlessly through social medias, not have to be pressed with 24/7 coverage of people being offended by everything or being a victim of everything. People working hard because thats the only option to succeed.
Then em again as my mom said, "It's like the Amish... And I don't see people lining up to go live with them."
