After graduating college (Go Gators!), I landed an opportunity to move to Austin, Texas. Everyone I had ever known who had lived in Austin declared it the.best.place.ever.
So I packed my bags and moved cross country. I mean sure, I didn’t know the city, I didn’t know anyone who lived there, I wouldn’t have a job right away, but like, how hard would it be?
As it turns out, very hard.
Making friends after college just isn’t the same. Combine that with no job and an online Master’s program (Go Gators!) and you get a real struggle.
But here I am, a new-to-Austin twenty-something learning to live the “weird” Austin way of life. Follow me as I explore this city and make friends in the process.
