I’ve lived in the suburbs outside of Dallas my whole life (except for the past 2 years, but I live in a major college town now). The city never phased me. I think because the suburbs located outside of Dallas are so close to the city that those who grew up around the area became used to it. It sort of meshed together. Also, I visited Austin a lot, and still do. I love Austin. I’ve always been a seeker of fun/mischief/adrenaline though, so much so that it worried my mom when I went off to college. She had every reason to worry, honestly. I did some real stupid shit, but I ain’t sorry.
