New Year, New Schmoe
Greets, everyone. I’m Devin, and I’m a blogging media whore.
A little bit of background info, since many of you would likely wonder, “who is this guy, and does he have mysterious eyebrows like Zayn?” The second answer is. “not at all.” The first takes a little more ‘splainin.
I’m 36 years old, and did a lot of moving about the country in my teens and 20s. I took jobs in St. Louis and Providence, stayed with family members in Colorado and New Jersey. No matter where I tried to move to, I always came back to Dallas.
I’ll go into this in depth as time goes by, but I kept returning to this area for simple reasons. Nicer people. No state income tax. Better winters (and no, I’m not a fan of an 80-degree New Year’s Day).
After bouncing around so much, I resolved to stay here, put down permanent roots, whatever you wish to call it. I’ve flirted with jobs in New York and Los Angeles in the last few years, but when they fell through, I was a tiny bit relieved that I wouldn’t have to move again.
I love it here. Despite the fact that we have a shrill shrew for a mayor, an educational system that is the laughing stock of the country, and no one in this town knows how to merge into traffic, I will consistently tell anyone that living in Dallas beats just about anywhere else.
