So I’ve been living in the United States for a couple of weeks now. I gotta say, it is more different that I initially thought it would be. Maybe its because I never really sat down and thought about what it was going to be like when I got here, I just sorta knew this is where I needed to be and went for it. Now that I am here though I gotta say it is fantastic.
This really says a lot about what a lazy chump I can be, but I still can’t get over how much better the fast food is here. In absolutely every way the US beats Canada in this category, it monumentally cheaper, (Like 50-60% of what I would pay in Canada.) the staff are friendlier and more actually listen to customer orders, (If I had a dollar for every time I asked for no onions and got onions on a burger I’d have a considerable fortune.) and there is so much more variety if places to eat. Take for instance Zupa’s, a casual cafe that serves soups, salads, and sandwiches. It’s quick, tasty, reasonably priced and unlike any fast food in Canada I actually feel good about what I’m eating there. I can’t think of a single place in Canada that is like that. How does that not exist? Does it and I’m just totally ignorant? It’s just insane to me.
I guess I should at least briefly mention my schooling since that was the real purpose of why I came down here, even though my friends all speculate jokingly ( I think) that it was for me to get married. BYU is such a fantastic school. Maybe I’ll be more jaded about it after some mid terms but right now I’m in a honeymoon period of sorts and it’s awesome. My personal favorite course is my introduction to film studies (TMA 102) because I feel like I already get a lot out of movies, but there is so much more that even just this one course will allow me to get from film.
This doesn’t reflect super well on me, but what the heck I’ll just say it. There is such an over abundance of fine looking girls here it’s a little bit overwhelming. What a glorious problem to have.
That’s all I got for now, I have as couple of other stories but I’m going to be selfish and just make them into separate posts so I can make myself feel like I’m posting here again regularly. Peace out!
