Agreed, even if you don't know what career you want to go in by the age of 18, you know what you are good at and like to do, that you can put into a path of study.
istoric Fry Street
A picture taken in the early 1920s of the area known as "Fry St."
Considered by many to be a cultural epicenter of Denton, the area surrounding Fry Street is home to a group of shops, bars, restaurants, and other cultural venues. Many of the buildings were originally constructed in the 1920s.
In May 2006, the 100-block of Fry Street was purchased by United Equities, a Houston-based real estate company, which announced that several of the historic buildings would be demolished to accommodate a new mixed-use center. Known as Fry Street Village, the center would include lower level retail with apartments above. A grass roots effort by the non-profit organization Save Fry Street began soon thereafter seeking to preserve Fry Street as a historic and cultural icon for the city. The group was unsuccessful in preventing the demolition of two of the buildings, the Tomato Pizza restaurant and the Texas Jive bar. Most of the remaining businesses on the property were served with eviction notices with a vacating date of January 31, 2007, but it was not until May 2007 that businesses along Fry Street began to close. In June 2007, several local activists took over the gutted building that housed The Tomato Pizza, until the building burned in a raging arson fire on June 27, 2007. James Taylor Moseley, a local activist who had chained himself to The Tomato for three days, was arrested and accused of setting the fire.
 Fry Street Fair
The Fry Street Fair was a mostly annual event held by the independent fraternity Delta Lodge. It was typically the most attended event of the year on Fry Street, with many bands performing. After two of the largest and most critically acclaimed fairs in 2001 and 2002, Fry Street Fair was moved to Deep Ellum in nearby Dallas due to overcrowding and complications with the city of Denton. However, a scaled-down version of the fair returned to the Fry Street area in 2005. In 2007, the Fry Street Fair moved yet again to the North Texas State Fairgrounds within the city. After losing money in both 2006 and 2007, the festival's creators announced that the fair would no longer be thrown.
