Finally Leaving Texas!
I've been stuck working down here for 6 painfully long months, I almost lost my lust for life here - Texas is not meant to be inhabited.
Texas is hot. Hotter than any other place I've been in the United States. I've been in the swamps of South Carolina in the summer. I've driven through the deserts of Nevada past dozens of broken-down overheated luxury automobiles. I've run up California's rocky hills fully clothed under full sun carrying heavy loads. From Florida to Nevada to New Mexico to Arizona to California, I've never experienced unrelenting heat like I've experienced in South TX. It's utterly depressing. You look out your window at a totally beautiful, sunny Saturday morning, 9 AM, the world is your oyster...until you open the front door, and remember that some sadistic sun deity is hovering in the ionosphere with a 100x magnifying glass trying to roast you like an ant. The heat is hot, it starts early in the morning, lasts late into the evening, and does not stop for six months out of the year.
Add the gross bugs, constant threat of hurricanes, ignorant/incompetent people, ugly terrain and ridiculous heat to the pollution and the summers here are pure Hell. This is the rectal sphincter of the world, everybody into their status and what the Jones' have. I am going to relieve myself on the TX/NM state line when I leave. I now have a new kind of hate for Christians as well. This project was not good for developing my character.
The time I've spent in TX has also been the most miserable time of my life.
I'm working here for a couple more years before I make the move back to Golden or Summit County, but they better not send me back to that purgatorial hell of a state or I'm gone.
Pun intended, Texans.
...Sorry for the rant.
