I was hoping to escape from here....from Utah.
We don't fit in here, we are minorities. Being here feels like being in a different country that technology has forgotten. I get it. Really I do. It has been explained to me really well that these folks have known each other their entire lives, that things have been a certain way for a very long time and they don't want it to change.
But change happens, cheese gets moved.
I thought we were going to move to Minnesota. To Plymouth Minnesota to be exact. It felt like a light at the end of our tunnel, like we would be going somewhere that we would be welcome. But Calvin's boss, who has made work extremely difficult for him, has made it impossible for him to take the job. For the foreseeable future, we will be residents of Utah.
Then today, I see the headline from Money Magazine. 100 best places to live! Guess which city is number one?
I feel like someone just punched me in the gut.
I decide to check to see if any Utah cities are on the list. It takes me a while to find it but I find No. 63 on the list. Orem Utah. Where the hell is Orem? I've never even heard of it before. It must be Utah's best kept secret.
See if your city made the list....
