When I first came out here I didn't know what to expect because I was traveling with a bunch of friends. I’m only 18. I've never traveled alone. From where I'm from it is so conservative and I feel in general it is very hard to find people that have... in the streets you call it the same vibe, you know. In Kansas City it is just rare for me to find people like that and here they're totally everywhere. Being out here makes me want to wake up super early in the morning, live a full day and just go out and meet a ton of people and stay out late. I feel like I belong out here. I really want to move out here, soon.
Most people there are extremely close minded. I'm ashamed to say it but my parents are voting for Trump, you know! It's just kind of like, that's normal and that scares me that people want to stay there for the rest of their lives.
