we are here! made it to utah with only a terrible migraine headache and 700+ miles getting in our way.
i cried a lot this week. that is what i do when i can't figure out how to deal with my emotions [at least i don't EAT my emotions like the girls on mean girls]. provo is just SO.......country. i am a city mouse stuck in a giant grassy farmland world and i dont know if i can handle this. sure, four years of undergrad is one thing when you're insulated by campus & co-eds...an entirely different one when you like to think you're a cultured, experienced grown-up. i hope i can make it through these two years.
highlights so far:
incredibly nice people at my new target
cheap cheap cheap [toothpaste is 89 cents!]
met our new bishop randomly on the street
two good job interviews, check
d-bag landlord and crappy apt
visiting w/ the grandparents
holding off on the cafe rio initiation till my nervous tummy adjusts to the new homeland. tomorrow we fly to vegas to board a houseboat for a week -- NO email access, NO blogging, NO cell phones. scary. i didn't even give up internet when we went all the way to europe!...will i survive? but honestly, after this week, i'm quite looking forward to unplugging and doing noooooothing.
after that we'll be in rancho / pasadena for a week. and regular blogging / correspondence will resume :)
