When I think of a city I see this in my mind:
|Although, this is really a Sin City. Not really a real city either.|
It's totally beautiful right? That's Brigham Young University. I'm pretty sure they have the tallest buildings in Provo. The thing is, Provo just seems like a fantasy land. It's too "perfect" to be true!
Here are four Reasons Provo is not a real city.
1. So many students. It's a college town. Totally not real! Does this picture look like real life to you?!
They are everywhere! I don't have anything against BYU. My sister went to BYU. My best friend went there. I even had a sleepover in her dorm. When she rolled over at two in the morning and whispered, "I can't sleep...my tummy huuuurts!" we walked to a pizza place had ourselves some fetching pizza.
2. So. Many. White. People.
That's kind of a joke, but really. There are SO MANY WHITE PEOPLE!
|Side note: BYU's soccer team is Awesome!|
You should probably just watch this video. It actually kind of explains number one as well.
I don't have anything against white people. I am white! but according to everyone else I look mostly Mexican (but I'm not Mexican. I'm Polynesian+White=Awesome). Apparently I also look French, Indian, Native American, Iranian, Pakistani, Grecian, and supposedly talk like I'm from Minnesota.
3. So many Mormons.
I don't have anything against Mormons either, in fact, I am one. Surprise! I always wondered what it would be like to live in a place where the dominant religion wasn't Mormon. According to this link, in 2008 88% of persons in Provo were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints [Mormons].
4. It's full of hipsters. I won't even go into that. Just read it here on this blog. She's hilarious.
Are there any other reasons Provo isn't like a real city? After the New Year, I'm going to talk about the place I live now. It's called "Kidder". For real. I can't wait to show you my new town!
