There's still a lot to be learned about this city. I learned that calling those white tank tops typically worn as undershirts as "wife beaters" in Seattle is grounds for judgmental stares, but in some of the surrounding cities, it's fine. In Georgia, it's just a common name for them. The other night we walked to Subway and got some sandwiches and walked back, so I now know how far away food is from the apartment, if I'm ever feeling sushi or subs or even pizza.
Monday night, we went with a friend to see "Captain America: the Winter Soldier," and the theatre we went to had premium tickets where a waiter came to serve you, and every premium seat was actually a recliner with a pillow and blanket. There, I learned that I like turkey, brie and apple butter panini.
I can't say I'm disappointed in anything I'm learning about this city, but it is still an adjustment sometimes. The culture and the people in the south I still miss from time-to-time. We don't take things too seriously, and our cities aren't full of nothing but hipsters and grunge addicts. Georgia has a little bit of everything. But I am enjoying this city of nerds, I fit in here pretty well here.
