Today I thought about all the reactions I got when I told my friends I was moving from Austin to Detroit. "Why would anyone ever do that?", etc etc. I want to take a second to share my thoughts on Detroit so far -
I've never lived in a place as diverse and stimulating as this one.
Everyday I've been faced with the fact that my time in Austin was spent in a small and safe bubble where everything was nice and warm and comfortable year round.
Detroit is pushing my definition of happiness, changing my opinions of humanity - for the better. Detroit isn't decay or any out dated stigma / prejudgement - Detroit is what every privileged person existing behind a social media account claims to be.. Detroit is hope, change, PROGRESSION.
So beyond excited for my time in this city.
