Moving from San Diego to Austin

A couple of months ago an opportunity opened up at work to move to Austin, Texas. I toyed with the idea of making the move but never took it seriously. Next thing you know, the lease on my apartment at the time was about to end and I still had not found a new place to live in San Diego. Queue time to take the decision seriously. Growing up and attending college in San Diego I felt like it would be a good time to experience something new and committed to going. And, after a hectic two months of moving halfway across the country, I’m finally starting to settle in. Here are some things I’ve learned leading up to the move and what I’ve learned from a little over a month in Austin.
