Zoom, sapphire


sapphire: I've discovered that Utah has other amazing hikes to offer that aren't quite as draining. Still a city girl, though. I can visit wilderness and explore it happily for a while, then go home to my apartment in the city. Jan 28, 2015 20:56:39 GMT -6
sapphire: I started out blonde, so. Although my hair is going steadily darker as I get older. I'll probably be brunet in a few years at this rate. Jan 28, 2015 20:55:05 GMT -6
sapphire: Awesome link, Zoom! I'm going to add that to our Tips board. :) (Google is kind of amazing.) Jan 28, 2015 20:53:33 GMT -6 *
Zoom: Oh PS guys I'm blonde now, it's fantastic. Highly recommended Jan 28, 2015 4:25:16 GMT -6
Zoom: Maybe you can find a nice city block where the walk to and from your apartment is gorg and worth seeing every day but you don't have to go out of your way Jan 28, 2015 4:16:13 GMT -6
Zoom: I was gonna say well you don't have to go for hikes every day - but, like, why live in Utah unless you're going to take in the environment? That's what Utah is, right? Jan 28, 2015 4:15:53 GMT -6
Zoom: And yeah, I talked to my friend and he also says Boston is incredible...kind of finding a lot of reasons to go check it out. Jan 28, 2015 4:13:52 GMT -6

Zoom: You guys ever feel like Google has the answer to all of your problems, if you can just figure out how to phrase the question? Finally figured it out. Jan 28, 2015 4:12:40 GMT -6
sapphire: I must say, though, after spending a day hiking in Utah, that's enough. I'm a city girl. (We're here for a week and I don't know if I'm going to survive hikes like that every day.) Jan 25, 2015 21:39:47 GMT -6
sapphire: I LOVED Boston - almost went to college there, actually, though I ended up in NYC. I was only there for a couple of days, but I get what you mean about connecting to a city. It took me longer to love NYC, actually - Boston I loved immediately. Jan 25, 2015 21:38:40 GMT -6
Zoom: **there Jan 25, 2015 17:08:07 GMT -6
Zoom: Has anyone here spent time in Boston? I was there for a couple hours waiting for a connecting bus and I loved it - never really connected to a city like that before - and I've since heard all kind of great stuff about it. Thinking of spending the summer th Jan 25, 2015 17:08:04 GMT -6

Zoom: Man my cousin lives in Colorado and they go down to Utah for offroading and it's incredible, I'm so jealous Jan 24, 2015 22:40:53 GMT -6
sapphire: So I'm in Utah right now, and it is amazingly gorgeous here. I may have to rethink moving to the city. :P Jan 24, 2015 21:46:55 GMT -6
