As the movie line goes, "You can never go home again but you can still shop there." Well, I’m going to one of my former homes on Thursday, Austin, TX.
I have a surprisingly large amount of people who still keep in contact with (thanks Facebook!) and looking forward to seeing them.
Everyone always asked me, "Why don’t you like Austin?" It was too much like Sacramento to me at the time. People’s inability to call it a river as opposed to a lake and my job was not all that interesting.
A few things I did like about Austin in retrospect are all of the places to go out to, being able to see any band that I wanted, and the fact that this is the last place where I would actually go out with co-workers after work.
And yes, I do plan to hit 1 of my top 5 record stores and do some serious shopping.
