thx. tampa looks dope from the pics.

speaking a lil bit on nyc...
i feel like pictures don't do it justice. anything you can take in a photo...multiply it by 20. pictures, videos and what ppl tell you about nyc are understatements. its not even like i'm hyping nyc up...it is what it is.

like there are so many areas...so much to see, so much to do. you can find areas that look like something you'd see in the south or the midwest and you can find areas that are extra urban. i could blindfold someone and put them in the middle of chinatown and take the blindfold off and they'd think they were in hong kong or something...

then there is the diversity. its insane. you hear so many languages, see so many different faces, etc. so much food...so many styles...

i feel like the graffiti, the dirt, etc. make us who we are. it adds to the city. our city is clean but i know ppl will comment on things like graffiti or the random homeless person on the corner or whatever...but thats us. we don't have nearly as much character as we used to IMHO but things change...

i posted a lot of pics of the train because thats how we get around (most of us). it is a part of our lives from the time we're born until we either move or pass away.

in summary, lol, manhattan at night >>>>>>>>>>>>>>

if you have not been to nyc in your life, you are missing out.

I'm from Lubbock, which isn't exactly known for its scenery, but I've never really understood when I've heard some people call it ugly.


The landscapes outside of Lubbock.

There is a park with a small lake in almost every neighborhood.

Texas Tech is often considered among the nation's most beautiful college campuses.


I would have uploaded my own photos, but I don't really have the time.
