Austin has my heart but New York has my energy. Taking a week of working remotely, spending time with friends I love, and being surrounded by people who were all someone else before they landed in the bustle is something I’ve grown obsessively addicted to. Ironically enough, my first work event during the Ingress days I swore I would never live there. Now, I’m just wishing I hadn’t bought a new car 3 months ago.
That and rent in Austin is stupid and if you’re going to spend $1200 a month on a one bedroom you should at least consider doing it where there’s a change of scenery.
I suppose I’m old enough to have the courage of my convictions but young enough to still indulge in frivolity and that’s our greatest takeaway from this rant that will likely take months if not years if not never to even come close to acting on.
AND NOW! As if I haven’t already gone completely delusional and lost all sense of reality in my old age, please enjoy this song by new unknown indie darling…
