I have decided that Colorado might be one of the greatest places in the whole world. I know some of you might disagree, so in defense, I have come up with a few reasons why I love it here (in no particular order)
1. I was born here.
No, its not great because I was born here, but stating that makes me feel less like a tourist and more like I actually know what I am talking about (when I clearly don't)
2. The Sun! My goodness, coming from the cloudy Midwest I forgot that the sun even existed during January. And now I have to carry my sunglasses around with me. Its glorious
(don't judge the picture, that is what you get when you google sunny colorado)
3. Due to the wisdom of my dear friend Laurie, I learned that you can get a free drink at Chipotle in the Springs with a student ID. As if I needed another reason to love Chipotle...
4. The speed limit here is 75. Granted, my car can't really get up to that speed in this altitude, but I'm sure going that fast is really really cool
5. It's not Indiana...
6. You can get a tan here so quickly! After spending the day outside on Saturday I had a realized I almost got burnt. And if that fails, there is a free tanning bed in my apartment complext (you should be proud that I am practicing self control)
7. The altitude is a great excuse. For everything. Being winded walking up the stairs. Having a shorter work out. Or maybe not working out at all. But seriously, who would have thought it would make that much of a difference!
(picture I took on a hike this weekend. please believe me when I say it is 10 times more beautiful in person)
well, speaking of the altitude, I'm exhausted. Stay tuned for the second half of my list
