I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Hey Jake, I lived in The Woodlands for about six years. Back then, it was a tiny suburb, now it's massive. I don't even recognize it anymore.

I hope you get to do some of those volunteer trips. Youth really is full of possibilities!

I will report back if I do something like that this summer  :)

You've got that right. This expansion does not jive with me, especially the amount of forested "lots" that have been obliterated to make way for something new and completely unnecessary. It is my home town, and I'm not discontent, but I cannot wait to get out.

@oneaprilday, new favorite town: Bellingham, WA. I was just there on the Labor Day Weekend! My dad and I backpacked in the North Cascades for my birthday. We based in Bellingham and went to Aslan Brewing Company and Mallard's on the last evening there. Terrific trip all around. I was meant to be born in the NW. I would be able to put backpacking or hiking on that list of activities, but one has to scrounge for such spots near Houston or else drive a great distance.
Woo! Nothing like North Cascades beauty, and Bellingham's the best; you visited a couple of the town's great spots. Dish me up a scoop of Mallard's, please. Yum! :)  (Btw, you've got the NW bug, and now, you won't be able to get it out of your system.  ;)

Uh-oh, this sounds serious. I'll have to move.

Can confirm.

No, I'm just stupid.
