1am, listening to explosions, reminiscing the first time I heard/saw them live (at a sxsw free show back in freshman year), reminded of all the reasons I fell in love with austin, then with FNL, then with Texas, and just feeling so at home at ease at the moment. I know I’d always been reluctant to accept this place but Austin was undoubtedly a game changer, I know that, and I couldn’t have been more lucky to have been there for so long. You get used to a place then everything starts to make sense and the next thing you know, tacos and quesos and country music are home, then you wonder why you ever wanted to leave. I guess our perspectives keep changing as we grow older but this one came out of nowhere. Live in the moment. Appreciate all that you have. Don’t ever take anything for granted. That is all.
