A change in location

Since I will no longer be living in Provo it seems funny to have a blog named after it. So, lacking in intermediate computer skills, I bypassed the headache and created a new one.

Enjoy! :)

It figures.
A couple weeks after starting a blog about my life in Provo I decide to move to Salt Lake. I'm going to SLCC in the fall to continue my pathetically long journey towards a Bachelors Degree. I figured I could stay here in Provo at a job I hate and take my chances on yet another batch of roommates (lets just say I'm cursed when it comes to roommates), OR I could move home, quit my job, not pay rent, and find a new job. It sounds pretty loser when you put it like that, but really its whats working for me right now. It's time to move on.
Oh Provo, you and I have had some times together:

Like going to the dollar movies for 25 cents
Or finding a roommates prenatal vitamins
Getting hit by a truck in the crosswalk on my way to work (and escaping with a couple of bruises)
The ten minute long techno Yo-Yo ROUTINE from the ward talent show
The Ginkgo trees around the WILK that smell like vomit for 3 weeks every year
Discovering why the internet would slow way down every night at 7. Turns out that was when the World of Warcrafters started their all night gaming marathon
Gaining a greater appreciation for Febreeze
Not being afraid when the carbon monoxide detector goes off
That one time when I lost a ton of money thanks to a shady landlord and the worst roommate ever (For real. You may think you can top it, but you can't. No one can take that title from her)

And so many other more positive things not listed here. It wasn't all bad. Just mostly hilarious and shocking.
I think I've experienced all Provo has to offer.
Except bowling at the student center, but I lived in Freshman housing so that covers it.

Lately my Biology teacher has us watching these "The Shape of Life" movies about 'the rise of arthropods' and the 'struggle for survival'. know, those movies from your Jr. High/High School bio class with the real footage and real scientists , but yet it still has that horrible music and super animated objects floating around the scientists? Its like the magic school bus, except for older kids.
While the movies are dumb, its about 10 times better than listening to the super opinionated LDS kids in my class try to convert my blatantly anti professor who responds with comebacks like "religion is for the weak-minded", "Heavenly beings are constructs of society that some people use to make excuses" or my personal favorite - "Prove it to me with science" (always reminds me of Nacho Libre...)
The focus of the movies are to talk about how things adapted and evolved, however I think real purpose and goal is to make me crave seafood.

Every other scene in the movie is a lobster, crab, shrimp, or misc. ancient ancestors of the 3 battling it out for survival. For some reason, while watching footage of a crab demonstrating a superior adaptation by cracking open the shell of some nasty sea snail, all I see is this:

Mmmm...King Crab! If only I could eat you every day :(

Even the ancient sea scorpions of old are similar enough to remind me of this dear friend:

Hello Delicious!

Even segments about fish are bad!

oh sweet sushi heaven...

Basically every day I leave Biology hungry...I don't think that should happen.
