How did you get there? Do you have family there? How did you get a place? Any tips on surviving Austin, Texas?
I got here by plane!
I'm not sure what you mean by that. Do you mean what brought me down here? If so, I was offered my dream job and I took the opportunity.
No, I do not have any family here. As far as a place, when I came down to interview, I looked at some apartments but the apartment I chose, I just saw it online. I actually chose it and placed a deposit on an apartment, sight unseen. I didn't see my actual apartment complex until I actually moved in. I was blessed to strike out on an excellent apartment.
I don't live in Austin so I can't give you any tips on living there. I live an hour away, north. But, I have been there often and I work there as an agency nurse but haven't been out socially there often. Just a few times. Overall, it seems to be like a very cool city. Lots of events.
