I met a guy in art school who quickly became my good friend.
We were the only “shining stars” in our class, so this meant we bonded and eventually started living together in a small (SMALL) pink house near Downtown Austin. (I miss you, pink house.)
We were such good friends that he brought my boyfriend and I at the time to North East Mexico, Nuevo Laredo (only 3 solid hours from Austin). I was so inspired by the colors, textures and typography all over town that it definitely takes away from the experience of getting stopped by the border patrol and being searched for weed. Fun times.
