I am from Texas currently going to school at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA to get my PhD. I prefer to experience destinations as the locals do,especially when it comes to the food and the stay. I am neat- my mom taught my 3 siblings and I to always leave a place in better condition than when we arrived. Because I study so much, I like to chill out on my trips and prefer staying close to home to relax, cook, read novels, etc. When out or in the evenings, I like dive bars, live music, books, and cafes.
