I grew up in the small town of Stephenville and moved away shortly after graduating high school. The town is a great little town, but economically it struggles. The only career opportunities are either working for one of the schools or being a dairy farmer. Neither of which fit my career choice. Every now and then I will bump in to someone here in Austin who was from Stephenville and today we bumped in to another person from Stephenville. Every person I bump in to from there says the same thing....great community, but no job. It would be great to be able to move back to the community some day, but unless I hit the lottery, I don't see that happening.
