Escape From the Country

    Many people think that living in the countryside is ideal, but it is not working for me. Firstly, there is little choice when it comes to shopping. There are not many shops in my area, just one supermarket. It is two kilometers from my house, so even if I only need some milk, I have to get in the car. Another reason is that the internet service is very poor. Usually, it is so slow that I can’t watch a video. Even worse, it sometimes goes down completely in the evening. Finally, and most importantly, for me, there is not much opportunity when it comes to working. Most companies have their offices in the city, so if I want to find interesting work, I will have to commute for two hours. Briefly, country living is not as great as people think. In my opinion, it is very inconvenient. I am going to move to the city as soon as I can find a job there.

Escape From the Country

      Many people think that living in the countryside is ideal. They imagine only the good things, the clean air, and living close to nature. However, from my point of view, the struggle with practical day-to-day life makes it far less than attractive.

      Firstly, there is little choice when it comes to shopping. There are not many shops in my area, just one supermarket. It is two kilometers from my house, so even if I only need some milk, I have to get in the car. Furthermore, the variety of goods is limited and never seems to change much. Without a trip to the city, my diet becomes pretty dull.

      Another reason is that the Internet service is very poor. Usually, it is so slow that I can’t watch a video. Even worse, it sometimes goes down completely in the evening. This is annoying when you are watching a movie or playing an online game. Moreover, if you are trying to upload a video to Youtube, it can be incredibly frustrating.

      Finally, and most importantly, for me, there are no opportunities to find good work In my area, there is a small tire factory, a supermarket, and a gas stand. They offer only poorly-paid boring jobs. Most larger companies have their offices in the city, so if I want to find more exciting and better-paying work, I will have to commute for two hours on unreliable trains.

      Briefly, country life is full of daily challenges and harder than people may suppose. In my opinion, it is extremely inconvenient, and anyone considering it should think very carefully. I am going to move to the city as soon as I can find a job there.

Below it is easy to see the similarities with the color codes. Also, the reason sentences in the paragraph already contained a topic and main point. It was simply a matter of adding more information and detail. We had to keep this essay short for the video, but with a few more sentences, it could be a really good essay.

The OREO way is very useful. If you have to write an opinion essay, all you have to do is remember the famous cookie. The top biscuit is the introduction, where you give your opinion. The cream is the tasty, interesting bit where you give your reasons and explain them to your readers. The bottom is the conclusion, where you give your opinion again.
