Emily and I had a great discussion tonight about where geographically (and realistically) we want to live. Her sister wants to move to Austin, and she has always made noises about how she wants to live in the same city as Emily. But I told Emi that I have absolutely no desire to go back to Texas. I don’t think Megan realizes how much negativity is in Texas and how awful the people are with their relentlessly obnoxious pride is their hate-filled state. Austin might be a cool city, but it is a blue dot in a sea of red. Plus the weather is bad.
I told Emily this with the full understanding that her sister will basically always come first because twins or whatever, but she agreed with me. Texas is a horrible state, and she has no desire to trudge further south. She and I are so similarly minded; we both want real winters with snow, blue states please (swing states good too), and college that suits both of us.
I’m just so happy to be where I am with this girl. She warms my heart, and makes me feel so special. I’m glad we’re on the same page about this because moving is scary and a huge step. It won’t happen for at least another 2 years, but it’s good to start thinking early.
