“Texas!!! God, the worst of Hollywood — it’s not all orange-tinted, tumbleweeds, gunslinging, horses, and cowboy hats. I’m almost 25, living in the heart of Houston, Texas, and have never seen a single cowboy hat or a pair of boots that wasn’t from a tourist or an older farm worker.

Most of our cities [feel] just as big as places like Los Angeles or New York. Busy traffic, skyscrapers, nightclubs, etc. 

And no, most of us do NOT have thick accents — that’s usually the older generation, like 60-90-year-olds who moved here from Oklahoma, Arkansas, or Louisiana.”
