My first blog post! So I just moved to Salt Lake about a week ago, into the dorms at the University of Utah. I'm a member of the Utah Marching Utes, and that is so fun! I made it onto the 1st Trombone part, and was appointed a squad leader. Y'all should come see a game if you can! I am taking Calculus I, the Universe, Marching Band (obviously), US Economic History, and the Book of Mormon at Institute. My math professor unbuttons his shirt about a third of the way down. It's kind of weird, but not much I can do about it! My Universe professor is Greek and has a really cool accent. That's probably going to be my favorite class other than band. My Economics class seems dreadfully boring after the first day. To make it better, I sat by a few sophomores and juniors, who seemed to know a lot more about economics than I did. I'm not used to being on that end, so I felt really self-conscious. I am finally figuring out the shuttles and how I'm going to commute every day, but because of my schedule, I need to hurry a lot. I felt like an idiot today because I had to sprint across the lawn from my math building to the shuttle that was stopping in front of the Music School, so I could make it in time, because my math class got out a few minutes late. My roommates, Cody, Ben, and Thomas are pretty cool. I'm the only LDS kid, and they swear a lot, but it's not a huge deal. They're fun to hang out with and talk to. So that's basically my experience of my first couple days at the U of U! It should be a fun semester. I'm excited to be moved out, and meet lots of interesting people!
