I love Austin, Texas and feel lucky that I was able to stay in the city after attending graduate school at the University of Texas like so many others want to do. I am proud of Austin as a city and what it represents. It is healthy, progressive, bike friendly, and has one of the biggest music scenes anywhere in the world. There is always a festival, a concert, or something to do. It is a big little city as it is big enough to offer everything but still has a small town feel.
