How do I even condense the past week down into one journal??? AaAA where to begin.

Okay so I officially left Fargo on the 19th. Saying goodbye to my cat was a sad time. I think she agrees. How we said goodbye? I petted her. She licked me. I pet her again. She bit me. 

My whole family flew down to SLC Airport and then down to Las Vegas. I actually got to meet one of my 30 year old online friends for breakfast in the hotel the next morning. That was so much fun. If anyone says to you that online friends aren't real friends, throw a computer at their face and ask if that wasn't real. 

We spent the next week driving up through the desert to tour the national parks. The first stop was Zion National Park. Imagine great red desert sandstone mountains looming above you, and driving on a two lane road that weaves in and out of the hills. 3000 foot dropoffs on one side of you and on the other, a mountain wall 2000 feet high. Heat that tells you there is no water around and you WILL get a sunburn if you stay outside for more than 10 minutes.We stayed in a camp at 6000 feet above sea level, it was only 20 minutes away but the 2000 foot elevation change made the terrain much different. There were pine trees up there and eventually, flat areas that were grassy like plains. The Ranch Resort Camp thing was basically...you get a one room cabin with a big bunk bed, a ceiling fan, and a couple outlets and a couch. The showers are up the hill on  a dirt road in a communal building with a communal bathroom. There's a pool outside and a minigolf course and a family owned restaurant.....and horses. And you're surrounded by mountains. 

After three days we drove to Bryce Canyon which is much more pretty, it has that famous sandstone arch. There are more trees and it's cooler because the elevation is OVER 9000 feet. 

I have lots of postcards so if anyone wants one pls message me ur address.

At the end of that day we drove up to Provo and got into our hotel at 9 pm. I was really anxious to see the BYU campus but they said it was too late....

So the next morning was move in day at my new condo (shared w 3 other girls) off campus. My mom spent the next three days shopping with me nonstop to buy me the stuff I need to survive alone. Literally all that's in my cupboard is pasta, pasta sauce, macaroni mix (pasta), ravioli (pasta), and some tuna and bread. I also have cheese sticks, yogurt, and parmesan in my fridge. My room is uber cute but it's small and there's no window. Where there should be a window is a door...which has a small window. It's too a tiny balcony. People drive by and scream annoying things. Otherwise the place is super cute. It has granite countertops in the kitchen and bathroom sinks. New carpet and recently painted. My mom dropped me off at orientation one day and uhhhh...then...I was alone. For the first time in my life. She went to the airport at Salt Lake City and went back to Fargoooo.

I AM FEELING THE BURN. New student orientation was the past 3 days and the first two days I must have done 6-8 hours of walking in the hot sun. My legs are going to be the strongest anybody has ever known. Most buildings are 10 minutes away from each other, but it's a hugeeeee campus. Getting to the very other side takes 30 minutes by walking. Not a big deal unless you're already exhausted. I kindddd of want a car now but I don't wanna spend the money and I still only have my permit. Maybe next year.

I did find that deciding what to eat is ridiculously difficult when your parents aren't around to decide. It's like....wow I can just skip dinner I don't even have to eat. Amazing. So I've been eating less and walking more which is a recipe for weightloss. I don't care one way or the other whether I lose weight as long as my body has okay nutrition/health. I've been taking my vitamins.

Okay, socially, I don't mind being alone but I really enjoy it when my friends contact me and stay in touch so if you are friend or even acquaintance feel free to hmu any time.

A couple friends of mine and I went on a nice road trip this weekend. It was the first vacation I've taken as an "adult" with no other older adults on the trip. The first day we went directly to a lake town and spent the evening on the beach + eating at Zorbaz. I'm not really sure how I feel about Zorbaz. It's got that locally owned charm...but it's a bar. I really hate being in environments where people are drinking or smoking a lot. The food is okay. They market themselves as the only "Mexican and Italian American Food Joint." It basically means they serve a lot of greasy pizza and pasta and burritos and chips and salsa. 

A highlight of the trip was spending two nights sleeping in a van in the Walmart parking lot. We folded down the seats, put a ton of blankets down and it was great. It ain't the Ritz but it isn't as bad as you would imagine. We cracked the back and front windows just a bit. The only problems we ran across were mosquitoes and how badly the windows fog up. The mosquito thing was only a problem the first night. It was kind of hard to sleep with them buzzing around my face. Second night we were smart and sprayed a shit ton of mostquito spray on the edges of the windows and on ourselves. Somehow this also helped the condensation bc the water just gathered on the sprayed parts of the windows? Probably because it was colder. You may ask how we bathed. Fresh wipes are the lord's invention. That, and never underestimate the beauty of Walmart's clean bathrooms for brushing your teeth.

I had rented an Americinn hotel room for  the third night and that was pretty great. It was in a different town so we drove really early in the morning on some backroads to get there. You will not believe how beautiful it was! The early morning sun has the prettiest lighting, plus we were by marshy land that hadn't been developed for farming because of how marshy it was. We even saw a real field of WILDFLOWERS. I totally thought they only existed in movies.

Since we were too early to check in we checked out the city. They had a Dollar Tree that was SUPER organized. That was an absurd experience. It was great to buy one dollar goods. Still have no idea how they continue to subsist with only 1 dollar goods after the collapsed economy. Next to the Dollar Tree was this mall with a movie theater inside. The mall was sketchy, and the theater was small, but it had air conditioning so it was all good. 

We saw Antman..which was....probably 4 out of 5 stars for me. I had my doubts about it in the beginning because the exposition was a little cheesy. It was just talking heads for a couple minutes. After awhile it picked up and I really enjoyed it. I appreciated that it was stylistically a little different than the other Marvel superhero movies. Also, the amount of fourth walls that they break is TOO MUCH. Marvel is too powerful. And for those of you who want to know, yes there are TWO post-credit scenes. So don't leave right away.

Hotel check in was 3 o clock and was much welcomed after an intense travel experience. WE all had AWFUL sunburns. My tan line is hilarious right now b/c I was wearing a bikini on the beach. Also ridiculously painful to wear a bra. Cold shower and the pool were great. 

MY PARTING ADVICE TO YOU IS TO ALWAYS HAVE SOMEONE PUT SUNSCREEN ON YOUR BACK WHEN YOU ARE LAYING ON THE BEACH.

For those of you who don't know, I binge watched Steven Universe within a 24 hour time period last week. I haven't been into fandoms for the past two years and then BAM here I am back to square one. 

Steven Universe is so gay and I love it. I mean, yes it is an indirect type of homosexual, but it's the most lesbian cartoon I have ever seen on Cartoon Network. It doesn't even make a big deal about their sexuality or gender identities. It's a big step for girly lead representation too so it's a WIN WIN!

I'm not gonna spoil anything in this journal but if you wanna talk about Steven Universe hit me up in a note.

Stevenbomb 3 starts tonight and I am so excited but I don't have cable so I'll find it online tonight
