Living in central Austin, this is a generally quiet neighborhood in close proximity to down town, UT, and several grocery stores. It's full of lovely houses with character, laid back neighbors, and is great for hilly walks with the dog.

I love living in Austin, but so does everyone else, so it's extremely overcrowded. But then again, maybe that's what gives the city its character. I hope to settle down on the outskirts of the city of Austin, once I graduate and start my career as a psychologist.
In my previous job searching, I noticed that jobs in Austin paid less than similar jobs elsewhere (accounting for cost of living differences).
