So I haven’t posted a text in a while, and thought why not? I recently moved to Utah in January and so far it’s been a hard transition. Here’s what you need to know living here:
- Know the difference between the LDS Mormons and the FLDS Mormons. Very important because there is a HUGE difference and they get offended if you make assumptions like polygamy.
- The alcohol laws and the tobacco laws are strange. Here you have to be 19 to purchase cigarettes and Washington it was 18.
- Very open state. I came from Washington which was very liberal. You don’t speak religion with others. Here, people tell you what religion they’re in the first moment you meet them.
There is probably others but that’s all I can list right now. I would like to say though that people here are SO polite. I haven’t had one rude customer since getting a job here and when I was in Washington, I was constantly cursed at, yelled at, and told horrid things. It’s been so hard being away from family and friends. I miss Washington everyday and I’m having a hard time. I’m keeping my head up though and trying my best.
