I knew next to nothing about Texas until I went there with a friend to go to a big music festival. For years, I had heard about this festival often because people from across United States attend it annually. So, it’s ironic that I soon needed to look at apartments in Austin TX because of a job transfer. This was a city that I knew nothing about previously, and suddenly, within only 2 month’s time, it was to be my new home. But there are no complaints from me, I really enjoy it here.
I was living in Florida before. And while I know that there are millions of tourists who visit the state year after year for the beautiful beaches, I spent very little time going to the beach myself. It always seemed so add me to live where there’s something so important like the water and the sand, but I never really cared for it. I often went only when family and friends came to visit me and they wanted to spend time on the beach. As soon as they left town, I had no interest in going back alone. The beauty was wasted on me. There are no beaches in Austin, but instead, there are a lot of fun things to do that fit me perfectly.
Now that I’ve had about six months to get settled in, I have realized it I’m so much happier here. This town is all about creativity in general as well as food. There’s so many different types of people here. There are festivals all year long. There are a lot of music venues. Where I lived before, there were a lot of seafood restaurants. Here, there are restaurants that serve different types of food from all around the world. I like how diverse it is here.
