The Truth About Texas

When I graduated from college, I took a job in the insurance industry in Massachusetts. The pay was good, the place seemed nice, and frankly I’d never lived on the East Coast. I wanted to know what it was like. It seemed exotic and foreign to me.

It was also a long way away from my native Texas. There were things I wasn’t prepared for – especially New England’s brutal winters. Ironically, though, I found that people in New England seemed like they weren’t terribly well prepared for me either. ‘Texas’ seemed to be a word loaded with meanings to someone raised on the East Coast, and I didn’t seem to fit the bill for any of them. Anytime I was asked where I hailed from, I could see people’s brains lock up when they heard the name ‘Texas’.

“But,” they’d say, “you don’t have an accent!” It was true, I didn’t. And I still don’t. And I don’t wear a cowboy hat. And I don’t have a six-shooter. And I know nothing about herding cattle. And I’m not particularly stoic or laconic or tough or any of those things you see in the movies. I’m just a guy.

But since those perceptions seem to endure among people who’ve never been to the Lone Star State, I thought I’d devote a hub to debunking some Texas myths, and to providing some insight on this oft-fabled state to those who might be considering moving down here. As you’ve heard, it’s a big place, and there’s a lot to know!  Read this hub for more information.
