So right now I'm sitting here with about 2.5 chapters of Genetics unread contemplating summer. The job search hasn't gone well. So far, I've driven 20 minutes to be told a position was already filled by a slightly annoyed man, and emailed back and forth a couple times with someone who is obviously trying to scam me. (No, I'm not going to give you my social security number so you can send me a check to cash for you. Not that much of an idiot.) Basically it looks like my summertime is going to be spent in Monroe.
It was weird, but today I had someone ask me if I missed Monroe, and I actually had to think about it. The whole reason I'm going to all the pain and stress to actually find a job is because I don't want to move back for the summer. I've actually gotten to the point where I think of Salt Lake as home, and Monroe as....back in the day. High school. Childhood.
Don't get me wrong, I definintely still love Monroe. There's a reason I still insist on saying that's where I'm from, when no one actually knows where that is. (Always Monroe, never Richfield. Hey, some things never change.) Its still a part of my identity.
I just think I've turned into somewhat of a *gasp* city girl. I love how many people there are up here, and I love that I can walk into the bank without someone inquiring as to what my parents are up to and how some obscure cousin I've never met is doing. If I want to be anonymous, I can be anonymous. Obviously this doesn't help finding a job, but pros and cons.
Ah well, I told myself I could only do this for 15 minutes and its back to Genetics homework. Bah! Finals why must you be so obnoxious!
