That's interesting. I lived in Oklahoma for more than two years and no one made me out to be a Texan unless I volunteered the information. So, how do you tell the difference between a Texan and an Okie? (Sounds like the start of a lot of jokes I've heard over the years...)

I'm just joking about telling people I'm an Okie. I'm in no way hesitant to tell anyone I'm from Texas. You may have noticed...

The truth is, everybody has to come from somewhere. Where you're born is just an accident of birth, but you have some choices after that.

Then, unless you still qualify as a legal resident of Texas, you can add being a deadbeat to being a Texan, unless you have been living and working in Colorado for less than 90 days--or you are in the military and claim Texas as your state of permanent residency or you are a college student and are not a Colorado resident (and are paying out-of-state tuition if you are attending a state-supported Colorado college or university).

My field is customer service and I'm ok with Denver but from what I hear, it's busy and expensive. I guess it just depends on what kind of job I get, but I need a nice city that's no more than 30 miles from Denver. I just hope it's not hard getting a job within my field.
