In late September, we launched an online series called Tex’n the City, where former Dallasite Brandon James Singleton chronicled the months leading up to his 30th birthday as a transplant to Southern California. Rarely did what he think he wanted — or had — turn out to be what he imagined. Here’s his post-script to the first 30 years

I met my best friend almost seven years ago in New York City through a mutual associate and it’s been everything, even dealing with a jealous mutual “friend” who’s tried several times to turn us against each other. Fortunately, we always trusted each other more. But a month ago, I almost lost him

So, there’s clearly something in the water in good ol’ Cali. It’s like everyone has a perfect gym-body. I mean, what happened to the days when people used to go to the gym, hang out on the treadmill for to minutes, make a few rounds while pretending the machine you want to use is taken and instead of drinking the little plastic cone of water at the cooler, you toss it in your face to give off the appearance of sweat — you know, after pumping all that iron — then hitting up the local Dunkin Donuts conveniently four blocks away, afterwards, as a good workout treat.

I know there are less fortunate people out there, who are lonely and [...]
Editor’s note: In the last installment of Tex’n the City, author Brandon James Singleton made up a checklist 10 goals before he hit 30, and realized he has only achieved one less than a year before the big day: A good best friend. This week, he sets his sights on a dream home, which takes [...]
