ustin, Texas, which was once a village on the banks of the Colorado River and then a small college town, has today become a major center for state government, education, business, and technology. It is a popular tourist destination and, as the third-fastest-growing large or mid-sized city in the United States, it is also a popular destination for those seeking to relocate. Thousands of people visit Austin each year for its combination of moderate climate, natural landscapes, and diverse attractions. Austin has at least six things that you 'll find nowhere else in the United States.
Now, the laid back southern life to me, is the way to go! No one is ever in a hurry it seems, just moseying along at their own tempo of life. Sitting back relaxing in the yard with family and friends talking about everything under the sky, laughing and cutting up with one another, having a cook-out or a late night bonfire enjoying the night air, sippin’ on some sweet tea, is what is special in my heart.
I grew up in a military family so, we lived in various places. In Tennessee, it got very cold and snowed every winter. In Hawaii, we near the edge of a volcano crater. We ate mochi and musubi almost every day. I went to high school in Georgia. For me, the South was so different from the laid-back pace of Honolulu but, in some ways, they had a lot in common. Savannah, GA has beaches and islands scattered near it 's coastline. Hawaii and Georgia each are obsessed with their regional fruits. Both places are filled with military servicemen and their families. Needless to say, I don 't feel like I truly have a "hometown" but, instead, I can make any town my home.
Throughout my childhood growing up in Miami Fl, was an amazing experience, it’s unique variety of cultures spread through one city is absolutely mind blowing. Although there was one thing one my mind at all times. One thing I never experienced was living out west and getting away from the Miami life. Its kind of hard to believe someone would prefer living out west, in the middle of nowhere than along a beach shoreline. As a matter of fact, living out west had become one of my priorities when I was making my college decision. For some odd reason I have at all times wanted to be near a desert or spacious land unlike Miami and that’s why this picture really has an essential meaning to myself.
Seeing all my family is what I found most enjoyable about being there. Here in New Jersey, it 's just my dad, sister and me, so it gets pretty boring. In Texas I want to experience having a different surrounding,i don 't know, and especially the good food. Being in Texas I got the privilege of trying all different kinds of foods that my grandparents made. My favorite foods were the ones my my hicken fried steak, biscuits and gravy and all the bbq you can think
I grew up as a military brat so being in one place for my whole childhood was not an option. I grew up in the company of my family. Mom 's southern cooking and my brothers ' destructiveness was the community I lived in. Out of all the places I have lived my three favorite are Washington, Florida, and Oklahoma.
“We’re going where? For how long? But why?” I said. It was the summer before seventh grade when my mom told me that we would be going a trip. I continuously repeated these three questions until she finally looked up and answered me. However, what I heard was not what I expected as I quickly started to argue with her as I refused to go along on this trip she was planning.
My family is one who has always loved this country. The history, the pride, and the freedom all come together to create a beautiful home. The
Oklahoma is the place I was born yet the only time I was ever there was maybe the first two to three months of my life I don’t remember obviously. I’ve always wondered what it’s like there. One day I hope to go there because I fell in love with a lot of their sports teams and I want to meet my biological brother.
Like anything else you love. Comparing to places that you love, can be complicated. I spent the better part of my life at Ft. Hood Texas. During that time, five of those years was spent, overseas fighting in the war. The two places I will compare are Iraq and Ft. Hood Texas. I will attempt to give you a synopsis of how they both affected different areas of my life. The first area will be Travel. How I traveled and what it was like. The second area will be living, the standards and how it affected me. And the last area will be the holidays. What and how it was celebrated. If there is one thing I learned through all of this; to be happy, you have to make it you 're own.
I’ve completed my move to Houston. I traded in my Maryland license for a Texas one. With that said, I’ve found a new church home. I joined Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church on January 13th. The church is very similar to STCF. It has a long history of community outreach and strong biblical teaching. It even has a strong men’s group. I’m looking forward to continuing my growth in the Lord.
Texas and Oklahoma are similar in a couple ways, but are actually particularly different from one another. It is crazy how immense of a transformation 600 miles really makes. Oklahoma and Texas share common ground on the account of the love for the south and the love for football. I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I am now going on my second year as a resident of the state of Texas. Moving from a small town in Oklahoma to a larger city in Texas, I never would have imagined how much of a culture shock I would experience. The weather, the resources, and the lifestyle of the residents of big city Texas and small town Oklahoma are just about as different as night and day.
Texas is well known for a lot of things, to being one of the biggest states in the US to JFK Assassination. Many people believe that Texas is probably one of the violent states because of many people owning guns and many prisoners being on death row. Numerous individuals has came up with a lot of stereotype for Texas and Texans. One of the most famous and favorable stereotypes are that Texas consist of many cowboys and cowgirls. Yes many of men and women are but, little do they know that more than 85% of the Texas population lives in urban areas. Another well-known stereotype and personally my favorite, is that everything is bigger in Texas. This stereotype is very true, for instance there are bigger houses, schools, football,
An Internet search led me to this quote by an unknown author," I fall, I rise, I make mistakes, I live , learn, I've been hurt, I've been broken but I'm alive . I'm human but I'm not perfect. I'm thankful for all I have. This quote speaks to me because I've experience all of these emotions as a mother. As a result of living in many different places, I developed an appreciation for traveling, photography, and the trait of perseverance.
There are many states have I been to in my life. I have made lots of memories with the places I have been to and the people I have went with with. The first time I traveled out of state was when I was three years old. Out of all the states I have been to nothing compares to my favorite state to visit. My favorite place to visit is Florida, because of the college football National Championship Game, Walt Disney World, and the fabulous beaches.
