Finding My Way

I was at Sears last night picking up some crescent wrenches to put the bunk beds together when I got a call from Steven Lloyd, a friend from Provo. He was going to see Dark Night and wanted to know if I could go too. I said sure! (Sorry, Julie...this meant no day-time pictures of my apartment yet.) I told him I would meet him at the MegaPlex movie theater at Jordan Commons. I ran home really quickly to change out of my work clothes, and then headed to South Jordan, where I knew there to be a MegaPlex. Steve told me the address was on 9400 South and ______ (his phone broke out)...but since I knew where it was, I didn't ask for a clarification. I headed to 9400 South and Redwood Road, where there is actually nothing but a few houses and a small farm-type-thing. Not a MegaPlex. I was on my way to 9400 South and Bangerter Highway when I called Goog411 (most brilliant phone number ever!) and asked it to look for Jordan Commons. "Top Result: Jordan Commons, 9400 South and State Street, Sandy." I just about died. It took me about 15 minutes to get from nowhere in South Jordan to Jordan Commons in Sandy. I missed the first few minutes of the movie, and all the previews... but Steve and I had a good laugh about how I'm still finding my way around my new town. :0)

So, I just found out that Colors - basically my favorite band ever - is playing at the Sandy Ampitheater on Saturday, September 13th.

And I'm going! :0)

Not Homeless!

Rachael and I signed papers last night for our new 2-bedroom 1-bathroom apartment up near Salt Lake! Excitement is a mild expression of my general feeling. It feels so good to be joining the "real" grown-up world, though my heart still twinges as my days in the loved college town dwindle to a close. It's a good thing that I still have many things to pull me back a few times each month! It's a great move for me, but it is definitely going to be hard.

I will post pictures of my place as soon as I have them!

So it Begins...

So, it's a rough start...but it's a beginning no less.

I'm hoping, as I mentioned in my subtitle, to not only include the normal excitments that work their way into my life, but also thoughts that I have or ideas I get out of the things I read...because heaven knows that's 90% of what I do in my spare time.

So enjoy and try not to get bored! ;0)
