Just got back from Texas.. I saw my first roach in the airport on the way back and it was the most disgusting thing ever. I'm not good with bugs...
Aside from that, I cannot believe how big Tech's campus is. After seeing Lubbock, I'm really glad I only have to be there for 3 years. I think I'm more of a big city kind of person. I have an apartment though! Amanda and I will be in Hunter's Way. And she even brought me a "Don't Mess With Texas bumper sticker."
And more updates on my attempt to Texify myself- I had chicken fried steak. It was... interesting. I also saw tumbleweeds alongside one road. Even though you guys told me they're real, I honestly didn't believe you. Haha. I think I could also get used to the weather. It was 100 or 101 on Friday and that was more comfortable than the 90 degree/ridiculously humid and hazy day I came home to.
...and people will try and tell you that Lubbock is a big city...
The heat is bearable in Lubbock, but the closer to the coast you get, the more humid it is. (duh) I went camping this past week in Paris, Texas and it was 106 in the shade...luckily it wasn't THAT humid.
And you can laugh at me all you want when we hit winter in Lubbock. I'm sure I'll be bundled up from head to toe and freezing still.
