I was a little nervous about coming out, but I've really started to like where I'm at. I even changed my license plates ... I feel like a true Iowatonian now!! A few things I've learned since being in the Midwest are:
- I get GREAT gas milage out here!!! I have a 25 minute commute to work everyday--I can stick my cruise control on 60mph almost the whole way.
- I can buy a dozen eggs for $1 (can't beet that unless I'd raise my own chickens!)
- When it gets really hot out... pigs can explode (disgusting I know)
- There's nothing like corn in Iowa. It grows so fast you can hear it.
All in all I can say I'm learning the true meaning of Midwest Hospitallity. I have felt nothing but kindness since being here.
