I was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. It's a nice, pretty clean city that I appreciate, but the rest, I don't. It's just not enough diversity for me and the night life is the worst. I chose to go to a boarding school (in Arkansas) for high school, so that gave me time away from home. I attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, and I stayed on campus all 4 years. My school's community was called the Vandy Bubble, and it was like not even living in Nashville, so that was cool. And I studied abroad in London for a semester...so that exposed me to a big city life, full of diverse people, great public transportation, and a great night life. One time I was riding the bus and there were 5 different languages been spoken around me, and I thought it was cool to see so many different peoples living as one.
After I graduated from my university, I spent some time working as a flight attendant, and that was the best job ever. Of course, I was all over the place...and now I work in Iraq most of the year. I get a total of 54 vacation days broken up into three vacaitons in on year...and I spend that time traveling around and enjoying the rest of the world. I dred Nashville. I return to see family and my best friend, primarily! Other than that, the city offers me nothing and I try to leave at any opportunity I get!
And that makes me homeless...since my company provides my housing here in Iraq, I don't pay for anywhere to live in the States...so I'm just always on the go...one of these days, I'll stay put...maybe!
