This Summer/ Fall i have decided to claim my independence and move out of Idaho. So peace out Idaho. The true is I actually just stepped into the next state down.... Utah! So just a quick over lay of my emotions and feeling at this dramatic change in my life. I arrived here last week thinking "Yay! It's gonna be so much fun. Look at how many more friends i have to choose from. So many more places to eat. More places to hang out" but then after driving in the traffic for a couple hours it slowly became a little more dreary. About the whole "Utah Driver" thing. I always just thought it was a stereotype. Kind of like the "Madison Poof" or the "Arrogant Californians" but nope. Truth is a lot of stereotypes are dang close to the truth. Driving in Utah is like taking the drivers ed test all over again. Everyone is staring at each other, skimming the driving manual in their heads thinking, "soooo... is that legal? Or..." It's getting bad.
Another thing that was definitely different for me was not knowing anyone. Everyone is in their own world and on such different pages. I know that sounds normal to you and your probably thinking she should have expected that and your probably right but living in rexburg is unlike any other place. Every person you meet has so much in common with you. you could walk up to a perfect stranger and immediately start talking. I've always been in such a closely knit community and now i'm here where life is more about survival. Yes i realize that it's only Utah and there are far bigger places but coming from a girl who spent her whole life in Idaho between two tiny 90% LDS towns to a place where you are just another face in the crowd, it's been a change. But yes, there is still no adventure i am not willing to take on and so this will be a learning experience for me. It just might take some adjusting. The plus side is that i have a pool at my apartment :) and i poured my first whitening cast today at work. It was pretty sweet. I will come out of this triumphant.... Soon Utah and i will be great friends.... just give me a couple more days to adjust.
