Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and began writing for OnlyInYourState in 2015.
Today, Katie writes, edits, and performs several other tasks for OnlyInYourState and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Sometimes there’s a price to pay for being the best. As much as we love our home state, even we can admit the hardships that come along with living here. But hey, at least we’re not alone – every other Texan is in the same boat (or scorching hot piece of land) with us. And the best way to deal with unfortunate circumstances is humor, so let’s laugh together about these 16 struggles everyone from Texas can relate to.
I’ve learned to accept these struggles since they’re such a small price to pay for getting to live in such an amazing state. How many times have you experienced these hardships? What other struggles come with living in Texas?
