Today is . . . weird.
Today is . . . surreal.
Today . . . today . . . today . . .
Today marks five years. Five. Five years of living in Utah.
What? No, that doesn't sound right. I just moved here. I'm not a long-term resident. I'm not a Utahn. This place was just a quickie. Just a pit stop on the way of chasing my dreams and changing the world and all the other altruistic notions I had back then. You know, back before I got so cynical.
But, yes, it's true. Five years ago, this very day, I landed at the Salt Lake International Airport armed with two suitcases and nary a friend for miles. And look at me now! I have a houseful of stuff and--now I don't want to intimidate anyone--like six friends.
So happy anniversary to us, Utah. Sorry I have such mixed feelings about you.
