i gave an answer on this a few months back, you can find it here :)
WOW LUV U
it just didn’t feel like home to me. there was a strange vibe about it, and despite lots of effort i never felt engaged in the community. that’s not to say it didn’t have wonderful people and wonderful leadership, and i wouldn’t want to dissuade anyone from wanting to live there! it just wasn’t a fit for me. and that’s okay! i still had an awesome year.
