25. Born in San Antonio, Raised in El Paso.
And I love El Paso, but mostly because it is solid blue and mostly Mexican. El Paso is friendlier, less fundie, less Southern, less Texan than the rest of the state. The rest of the state treats us like we don't exist, so we identify more with the west coast, New Mexico and Mexico than Texas, IMO.
