TRAVEL - Northeast US

Northeast US has always had a different spot in my heart. Last week I was in MA. I then went to Albany, NY, then down south to PA, then to NC, to TN, to finally Austin (my new home).. During this visit I saw that Northern sky is different. For some reason the horizon looks whole lot wider, and bigger. I am not going to try to logically explain this, some things are better left unexplained..When I was crusing down the highway I saw these different cities that are relatively old, they had these small rectangle shaped windows with short roofs and plain colored walls.. Old style homes or apartment buildings. Even though those buildings are fairly old and not really the latest style, I like them. I like them a lot. It has this warm feeling and somehow I can feel a connection. This is pretty weird considering that I have never lived up north. Just visited.. I wished that I had my camera with me so that I could have shared the scenery with you but I guess I will have to do that next time.. One other thing that is great about the north is the trees. They are big and there are lots of them.. The only other place that I have seen that kind of abundance was suprisingly in Arkansas. So far the only thing that I liked about Arkansas is their trees (don't know much about Arkansas yet).From reading this you might ask why I am down in Austin, part of my answer is I don't like COLD!! I can bear upto TN, VA line.. After that it gets too much cold and snow for my taste.. People here call 40-50 F cold where in Northeastern states, people would walk with shorts and T-shirts when it is that 'warm':) Rest of my answer has to do with how nice Austin is, and how my new job is located here in Austin (this is a whole different topic)..

COMMENT - Homelessness (Temp)

Well, for the last 2 weeks I have been staying with my friends in Austin. They have been great, I have really enjoyed my time here. We are getting along just fine!
I even started thinking about staying with these guys. I will be working a lot for the next foreseeble future, which means I will be out most of the time at my favorite coffee shop anyways. Rest of the time, when I do not have to work, I have these great guys to hang out with.. Just great :) Maybe not so great for them since they have to study most of the time and me coming and disturbing them when they study may get old after a while.. We'll probably never know since I will be moving to my place right after Xgiving.
All in all I believe I am lucky that I already have few good friends in my new Domain..

Moving to Austin, TX

Hello my friends,

As most of you already know I am moving to Austin, TX. Technically I already did move to Austin. Just my stuff has not made it here yet..
I really did not have much of a time to feel anything about moving (because of all the hassles of moving and starting a new job).
One thing that I know for sure is how much I will miss my friends and family, soon. I say soon because I cannot miss them yet. I will see them in a couple of weeks.. I expect that the reality of moving will settle in when I sit in an empty apartment by myself and see myself reaching to my cell to call someone from Nashville to go do something..
Tonight my good friends Hande and Turker called me. I felt like I was right there in TN but nope I checked where I was and I was at a "Seattles Best" Coffee shop in Austin (BTW they are much better than Starbucks).
This is going to be the start of my updates on my blog. This would be the best way to update everyone that cares about me..
To all my Friends/ family:
I do appreciate everything that you have done for me, all that you have helped me with, all that you had to endure, and all that we have shared together.. If there is anything that I may have done to hurt you, or anything that I have said/done that may have come accross as anything less than positive I am sincerely sorry about it. Thanks for all the memories you guys have given me, hope to continue our relationship forever..

HELLO to a new beginning,

Enes
