Transferred to the University of Utah

I got the paper work finished just in time and then I managed to get my grant money and my financial aid straightened out, but I had to enroll here in school before I was really sure that I could pay for it. I spent the morning looking at apartments in Salt Lake City Utah. Obviously I am looking for one that is very close to the campus. I figure that I need to be close enough so that I can walk if that is what I need to do. I know that my car is not going to do me a whole lot of good once it starts to get cold. That is a fair weather car, in fact it is probably going to get sold for junk before too long. That would save me a good bit of money and the truth is that I can live with no car quite well so long as I plan ahead and find a good location.

This car was really a huge pain last winter. It just does not like the cold weather and that is all that there is to it. The thing will take fifteen minutes to get warmed up and of course it is burning up gas the whole time. So I would shake myself awake and then go out in the cold to start it up, in my house shoes and my pajamas. Then I would go back in doors and get ready. The winter where I was is not any thing like it is here either. Salt Lake City is in the Wasatch Mountains, there are ski resorts within a half hour drive in just about any direction. Obviously they had the Winter Olympics here, but I do not remember what year that was. It wasn’t that long ago.
