Okay, I KNOW. Blogging in 2017. But, I’ve moved down to Austin and have had a little extra time on my hands. And it’s a funny time in my life, being new in a city and knowing just a handful of people, looking for a job, cohabitating for the first time in a decade-long relationship.
I don’t really know what the impetus was to chronicle this publicly, rather than privately. To be honest, my hilaaaaaaaarious play on the state’s anti-littering slogan just popped into my head one day, and, as I am wont to do, I found myself so clever and charming that I had to share it with the rest of the world. On a ridiculous, project-based scale.
Plus, it’ll give me something to do with all of the stream-of-consciousness words I’ve been hammering out on the keyboard all summer, reflecting on being a New Kid in Town. I’m going to want this as a record of this move, and doing it on the internet will be a better writing exercise for me than some stupid incoherent bullets in my Notes app at three in the morning.
So, hi. This is weird. But I’m over it. Remember, I’m not supposed to be stressed. IT’S JUST TEXAS.
