Hey everybody! Que pasa?!! Today was a really good day!!! I have some things going in a good direction for me! Hopefully soon I'll be able to write about them on here.

So two different people asked me today where I was from and about who I am so I told them...with a little extra: I'm from the thriving metropolis of Denver City, Texas. Nestled between Lubbock and Odessa this bustling town of 4,000 folks was incredibly influential on my life and for 15 years it was my home. Denver City is a hard place to explain for anyone that has never been there. Growing up, I had to cross not only state lines but time zones to get to the nearest movie theater. When I arrived in Abilene it was not just Imagine, if you can, a town built on the oilfield supplemented by agriculture. It's an incredible place, its really different compared to most other places though. If you have ever seen the movie Friday Night Lights, it is comparable to my hometown. You have people that are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. I love the home that I have there and the people that I know there. I think that this town is a huge part of who I am. I am a very outgoing person, and I think that part of that has to do with coming from a town where I know everyone. It makes me want to turn the world into a place where I know someone everywhere. People ask me what I did in High school, and I get to say I got to play football, basketball, baseball, one act, UIL, and some other things... but then I have to say I graduated in a class of 86 so everyone did everything. I know people who were born, raised, and died in Denver City. I can't imagine it, but it happens. I love that place and I will always have a home there, but I can't see myself moving back. I do love going home though and I'm looking forward for Thanksgiving next week.
So not anything really life changing tonight, but its a little background
I really appreciate everyone who has been reading this though and I hope that your still enjoying least a little.
But yall be careful and ojala que estes con una sonrisa!
