So I must say that I left Austin Texas a different person. I’m so used to my little shitty little city that never has anything important going on and the people are beyond unoriginal. Believe it or not but it has already gotten to the clone level.
I went to Austin not knowing what to expect really. I wasn’t even aware that I was going to spend the next 4 days at SXSW 6th street. Let me just tell you one thing, CLUTURE SHOCK. The moment that we drove into Austin I was amazed by all of the people and the ambiance that it had. In a very odd way I felt like I belonged to all of it. I felt like I was meant to be there, that I fit in. Keep in mind that in my city the average height must probably be like 5’6 or 5’7 and that’s for guys. Girls are expected to be at about 5’1-5’5. I’m fucking 5’10! I feel like an awkward giant here all the time no matter where it is that I go. In Austin on the other hand, I was actually average and TONS of people were way taller than me. I saw girls that were about 6’0 feet tall! Wow…
I don’t think my family and friends really know how much I hate my height. If there was anyway that I could take off at least 4 inches I would. My height is a huge factor of me being self conscience.
But anyways, I digress. SXSW was probably the most amazing experience of my life! The people are so odd and interesting. The musicians that I saw there were also super impressive. I have to say that I fell in love with the band Spleen United, check them out! Well…I am pressed for time to get to class but I will probably continue this blog later.
