It is the land of mosquitoes, roaches, fire ants, carpenter bees, squirrels (marginally better looking rats), possums (huge rats), gnats, and greenery that, if unchecked, would grow fast enough to choke you to death like in some horror movie.
I cried my way through the bar exam here. Cried my way through being an attorney here. Took walks in crippling, life-sucking humidity.
I got to be a new wife here. And I got to be a new mother here.
It has been a place of great happiness for me and my little family. And I swear that once we leave, I will shake the dust of this town off my feet and never look back, not once. Ever.
