Post: “Vacation”

Posted in Uncategorized by MW on May 14, 2012

Perhaps you’re thinking, “Gee, Utah sounds like a nice get-away,” or you’re thinking of replacing Utah with, say, Mexico, Hawaii,or Jamaica. Oddly for me, Utah is like a trip back to the old family cabin where, again, oddly, I have a lot of friends and family still residing. It’s hard to look at the Wasatch Range or drive through the neighborhoods of South campus without wanting to give up your Bay Area life and move back to the pleasantry of Provo. I would ramble more, but Stephanie Nielson said it best (starting with “I miss…”)(Mom? Are you smiling ’cause you know now that I’m reading Heaven is Here? Well, you should). Long story, relatively, short, sometimes I miss Utah and its nostalgic presence – the people are friendly, you can ride your bike in Provo at 3am, and good home cooking is available from Logan to St. George. I’m so happy I was able to visit…

Tuesday:
My first car rental (why is it a million dollars more if I’m under 25?!); and a sleepover with Chloe.

Oh, it was wonderful seeing everyone. We should do this again.
