No matter what happens not everything I write will be positive and upbeat. I do live here and just recently decided to look for adventures. It may take some time to really appreciate this place. I have a fairly long list of things I thought would be fun, but it depends on the air... yes the air. For instance check out this picture of an annual event (every winter) we have here called a Temperature Inversion. It’s where its really cold outside and all of our pollution gets stuck in the bottom of the valley. What you are seeing there is not a cloud but a layer of thick, grind at your lungs, pollution. Ahh Cache Valley in the winter, sigh cough…

This morning (and when I say this morning I mean midnight on…) I spent three hours looking at youtube postings of people living in Japan, London, Australia, New York, etc… anywhere but here. I know for a fact that I have wanderlust, a term I use to describe my constant cry to get out of Utah. I always wanted to experience a lot of different cultures, except my own. Why was I always looking for adventure in other places? I always question why people would want to move here when there are so many OTHER places to live. I don’t get it since I have spent many many days dreaming of getting out. SO it is my goal this year to find out what is great about the place where I already live and my culture… but what is the culture of Northern Utah? Uh I don’t know, I just know that this is culture, perspective, and experience by me.
