(Deleting stuff cause it’s getting really long.)
I know three kids at my school with my sister’s birthday and know of a couple others, but I don’t know anyone with my birthday. (April 14th)
Being close to family is awesome! That’s the main reason I wouldn’t want to go out of state. (or at least not far, out of state but in Ohio isn’t bad) (except it’s bad because ew Ohio) I would miss my aunts and uncles and grandparents and cousins too much. I barely get to see them enough when we live 30 minutes away.
I don’t know why I know so many people with mine. It’s weird.
Yep. That’s exactly why even though I wouldn’t mind the mindset in other states a bit more, I’ll probably never leave Texas for any significant period of time. My entire family is here, and we’re ridiculously close. It’s just never gonna happen
I totally get that. The only place I’m thinking about for college is Colorado cause I have an aunt (my favorite on my mom’s side of the family) and her partner live there and they are totally awesome people and every time we visit and stay with them it feels like home. But there is no way I could go somewhere with no family.
Colorado sounds fun; plus, I imagine the weather is far nicer.
My original plan was to do my Ph.D. out of state (both to experience life outside of Tx and cuz it looks better on a resume), but since I’ve since dropped my Ph.D. I’ll probably live nowhere but here the rest of my life, unless a future SO gets a job out of state
Definitely nicer weather. In the summer and the winter. I’m not sure if I’ll ever live somewhere besides Michigan. It’s weird thinking about living somewhere else, but also weird about never living anywhere else.
