Today marks my 5th year of living in Texas. My how the time has flown by. It seems like yesterday I was getting on a plane, without any of my family knowing and heading to Texas to start a new life. Little did I know I would have my heart stomped on numerous times and that I would lose most of my personal belongings. It’s been tough but I’ve shined through and found the man of my dreams.
If someone was to ask me if I still thought me moving to Texas was the best decision for me, I’d probably say yes. Yeah, I had to deal with a bunch of crap by moving here but overall I wouldn’t change anything. All of the things I’ve had to go through has made me a stronger person. It’s always made me realize just who my friends are and who really loves me. Do I ever plan on moving back to California? I don’t know. Maybe one day I’ll move back but really the only reason I’d move back is so I could be closer to my family. It’s been good for me to live in Texas and be the only member of my family living here. Everyone needs space and I was able to get lots of space away from people. Am I happier living in Texas than California? That one’s kinda up in the air. I had tons of fun hanging out with fellow car enthusiasts while living in California but I also had to deal with crazy rumors about me and a bunch of haters talking smack. Not to mention, psycho ex boyfriends trying to ruin my life (that never seems to leave me after a break up). I like living in Texas just because it’s so much different than California. However, I find myself going through the same crap I had to deal with when I lived in California. Part of me has realized that the car scene really isn’t fun anymore. People get together now just to talk smack about your car or start rumors about you. I’ve definitely taken a significant step back from the car scene since I moved here. Mainly, the car scene can’t even compare to the Cali scene. Cali>Texas.
Anyway, it’s been a good 5 years to grow and learn. I’m happy where I am right now and plan on keeping Texas my home for quite awhile longer. Maybe Texas is where I will start my own family. Who knows. Only time will tell.
