While living at home has been much more pleasant than expected, I'm OUTTA THERE! I'm planning on moving to provo here at the change of the semester, and I have two reservations... numero uno: money. Man how I hate money. It's clear by my choice of study that money has never been very important to me (the first major I chose was being an art major, now I'm an elementary education major- I am ridiculous). I worry about the cost of living because for a year now I've been living at home. I LOVED living in Logan though, and have made the best friendships of my life there-- side note, it is currently my dream that I can convince all of my Logan friends (and their future husbands) to live on the same street as me and we can all be best friends FOR-EV-ER. ANYWAY, I hope to make friendships down south as great as the ones I made in the north. Numero dos: This will sound silly, and the opposite of the popular female position, but I do not want to live in the marriage capitol of Utah. Not into the whole dating scene. I'd like to stay relatively unnoticed. I'm finally starting to enjoy dating every few months to a year. People say I'm lying to myself. FALSE. I'm a weirdo and I legitimately just like feeling the absence of awkwardness of dating. It's nice to enjoy friendships and not have to think about things getting all intense and annoyingly achey in the chest region when things don't work out. I'm currently working on my plans to be a spinster as I am now reaching the age of old hag in Provo years anyway! I'll be cloning my dear dog cookie and soon I'll be learning to knit. I'm not sure it gets more spinster-y than that. Does that not sound enjoyable? ANYWAY-- change is a-brewing in Miss Amy's life and I'm not against it. Should be grand on most counts.

Life at home has been an adjustment. I'm going to school at UVU now and that means commuting. Commuting means adventure. I have also found that communting has that lovely smell found in public restrooms. I found out today that my computer screen is very much broken. It will cost $250 for the cheap method and $370 for the best method. Well, now I have a decision to make... fix it, buy a used Ipad, or (assuming I get a job soon) save up for the coolest of the cool desktop Macbook pros. and that brings us to using that money on things like college. I'm finding my local singles ward to be, well, interesting. Between the "interesting" return sister missionaries, and the boys that flirt with me who I am not interested in, there are a lot of awkward silences desperately thinking of something to say. Also a lot of linger longer cake. As well as peer pressure to eat such cake. Darn my impulse to be polite! there goes that weight I was planning on losing. 2 years ago you wouldn't have been able to convince me that I would miss Logan. well I do. Hoping for my life to pick up in the "ideal category" soon. Spring hopeful... Amy

I'm on campus, pretty hungry and doing my best not to spend money while not at a grocery store. Well this past week I got out of the habit of bringing food to campus and as a result I am sitting in the Hub, smelling my peers food while waiting for a class to start. Although this may sound like a jam session of complaining, you are wrong. As I smell everyone's delectable food I'd like to put out my own freaky kind of advertising for all the restaurants I love the most. first we must start with training table. I am continually amazed by the amount of people I know up in Logan who have never been here. It's the BEST. Now while i'm on burgers we must talk about Culver's. Um, delish. you canNOT miss out on this place. we have one in Utah and I guess it started in Wisconsin. they have great ice cream, which that on its own would be enough for me, but they also have AWESOME burgers and their fries are amazing. And best of all the have caved to the social pressure of being in Utah, they have fry sauce. yeah. amazing. Now as a foodie my other favorite place to eat, is Farr's ice cream in Fort Union in Utah of course. So for anyone who has been to disneyland and had the pineapple dole whip and thought to yourself, "Man, this is the best. I love it so much I almost wish I could bathe in it. but the only place i can have it is in DISNEYLAND." your worries are over! Farr's has pineapple dole whip. I would live on the stuff if i could. now it is closer to a possibility. anyway, this is a post that could go on for ages. I'll just stop now before I make a scene and start drooling.
