Turning a New Leaf

Well, here I am writing in my blog. So on Saturday I moved up to Logan to start my very last year of college, and so far its been pretty strange. For the past three school years I lived in the same apartment with pretty much the same people, but this year I decided to mix things up a bit. I am now living in a completely different place with completely new rooommates. So far its been ok, but the new location of my apartment might be hard to get used to. I live at the bottom of probably the two steepest hills in Logan, Ut, and I have to hike up them every morning. Its ok though, it will be good excercise. I am pretty worried about when it snows though, those hills are sure to become icy traps of death, but somehow I'll manage.

I do have some fabulous news. So last year I was part of this class called the Huntsman Scholars program where I got to go to New York and DC, and have an amazing class experience with two amazing teachers. Since its my senior year I was unable to do the program agian, but I still get to work for the program. Basically they have invited all the old students to be mentors to the program, and the best part is that we all get paid $1,000 each semester! Hooray! I basically just have to help students understand the program, talk to them about their classes, help market the Huntsman scholars program, and go to lunches with adults and pretend I am really smart and that I have high ambitions in life. So here's a shout out to Jon Huntsman for giving me so much money and free food. He's a real winner.

I am pretty excited for this semester, but its going to be tough. Its pretty much my last real semester of school. I hope I haven't packed my schedule too tight. I am just going to have fun and work hard while it lasts, because once I graduate I have to start real life, and figure out what I want to do. If you have any ideas of what I should do when I graduate, feel free to let me know.
