Jon?

Maybe I should just stay here.
Saturday. 2.23.08 11:58 pm
"... What about the people? How do they compare --- here, and there?"

"They're different. I remember when a day that I went to the store when my mom and I first came here. People would just start smiling at us and say hello--- that stuff doesn't happen in California; people aren't as friendly"

The more I thought about her words, the more I agreed. Granted, there are some Texans that have been mean to me, and some westerners that I hope to see in the midnight hour(anyonecatchthat?), but the majority of the people I've met down here are generally sweet people.

Kathleen, the woman with whom I conversed, grew up in both Austin and the Bay Area. I saw her sitting outside beneath on a stone slab beneath a tree, watching people go by.

"I love my state," I tell her with my eyes fixated on the sunny blue sky above. "Maybe I should just stay here..."







I remained silent. She says that people are friendly here, they smile at you and thought it was weird. in california people keep to themselves. A conversation I had with Camille and Jessica about ne wyork made them seem worse.


Maybe I should stick to the Great State of Texas.

I've never been to texas. I've got family there, they don't seem to be bad people... feisty, but otherwise alright.

I didn't have any problems in NY, though I was there around 3-4a, barhopping. The next morning wasn't horrid either. Just toasty.

hahaha Dilated. Much Love. Having lived in Colorado, California, and Rhode Island, I have found that people are friendliest in Wisconsin and St. Louis. Only kidding. Sort of. Ok, not really kidding. I always thought it would be good to move around and see all the parts of the country before I decided where to live. So I've been doing that, and together with my short stint in Germany, I've discovered that far from it becoming obvious where it is that you belong, you end up missing little peices of everywhere you've been. So that no matter where you are, some part of you is always homesick for somewhere else.

As for me, I am a Western girl, and here in RI I miss desperately the big sky and the sunshine and the huge tracts of land with nothing, nothing, nothing for as far as the eye can see. A lot of people who live here can't understand why I miss that so much. I miss the open road, Dilated. But there is big sky and open road in California, and even though Californians do tend to keep to themselves, they aren't UNfriendly, and they make very good friends once you get to know them. I rather think that you should apply to everywhere, and see where you get in, and then visit and decide. And no matter where you go, you won't forget what it was like deep in the heart of Texas.

After hearing a few grandparents going on...I was shocked about what I heard. Heh.
