  • Where are you from? I'm from Austin but live in San Antonio

    Something random, but relevant about where you live goes here: The Alamo is here. It's part of a set of Spanish missions, and in my opinion is the worst of all of them. The other are so gorgeous! They have a trail that connects them (from downtown all the way to the south end of town) and you can bike it in a morning. It's awesome.

  • Where are you from? I am originally from the Southern Oregon Coast. I now live in Phoenix, AZ.

    What's your favorite thing about where you live? The only thing I really like about Phoenix is the weather in the winter.

    What's your least favorite thing about where you live? The HEAT!

    What is the weather like there today? I think we will only hit 100 today, so it is pretty cool for the summer. Yes, your mind gets way warped living here.

    Something random, but relevant about where you live goes here: I can't think of anything really interesting about Phoenix. The only kinda cool thing is that everyone you meet is from somewhere else (very few people are actually from here), so it is a fun topic to discuss where you are from and how you ended up here.
