Gone to Texas, Part Four

Nearly six years ago, I started this blog because I planned on getting a job in New York City. I was going to live with my sister in her cute East Village apartment, and I was going to blog about all the wonderful and exciting things I would do. I was going to use a blog to let my family and friends know what I was up to in The Big Apple.

Of course you know now that that was not how my life panned out. I stayed in Georgia and found interesting things to post about there. I think I mostly wrote my musings and posted pictures of the parties I threw or events I attended.

I will keep doing all of that, but now, I will use this blog as I originally intended: to let my family and friends know what I am doing in another part of the world. So first things first:

I made it to Austin. It was odd to come "home" to an empty and unfamiliar apartment. Even with my things here, it doesn't feel quite right. Hopefully in a few weeks, things will be better, and I'll be more optimistic about this move. I don't really have time to be too sad, anyway, because school starts tomorrow. My first class is Introduction to Programming. What a class to begin with, eh?

Thing I'm thankful for: surprise notes from mom

Where in Austin are you living? I was there a couple years ago, visiting. Some good music and food there. Hope class went well and that you settle in soon.

Good luck Sara! I'm excited for you. And I'm glad you made it safely. When I drove myself from Iowa to Georgia I talked on the phone and sang along to my music too! It's hard staying awake when you're driving by yourself, isn't it?

I hope your first day of school goes well. I'm glad you're keeping us updated!
