Sarah's Thoughts

Monday, January 16, 2006


I attend Brigham Young University. This picture makes it look really pretty. This is more what it looks like. It's not ugly, but not as lush and picturesque as the first picture would have you believe. The picture in the link is all campus from the bottom to about 2/3 up. I live just south east of the picture (the view is looking north).
BYU is a wonderful school and I really enjoy being here, even if I complain that I've been here forever as it sometimes seems, and that I can't wait to graduate. Mostly I am just excited to teach someday and can't wait for that!
I'm studying family and consumer sciences education in this brand-new gorgeous building. It has a great courtyard in the middle with tables and chairs, benches, trees, grass, and a granite fountain with a big pool surrounding it, which is great for the hot and dry summer months.

Provo is a college town in Utah Valley, which is, of course, in the "Great State of Utah," where it is actually very uncommon to see beehives.

Oh, Santoro!

I haven't written anything for a while. I've been really busy with family stuff and the start of a new term. This picture has nothing to do with anything, I just wanted one that makes me happy. I love the movie Love Actually, it's in my top 5, and Rodrigo is gorgeous.
Over the holiday break my car got hit by a truck on the back left door and wheel and the side of the trunk. This is where it got hit before, but last time I was in the car! I was in CA for the holidays and left my car (and my fish) with my aunt in Salt Lake, where it got hit in front of her house. The lady that hit it is paying for everything, which is great, but she hit it on 12-29 and it won't be ready for a few more days. It will be three weeks since the accident! I feel stranded. I think "I need to run this errand" and then remember I can't. I'm not old enough to get a rental car so I have to rely on bumming rides from my roommate, which I hate to do. I hate to ask for help.
