Tilly McBroom.

I still love Utah as much as ever,

but I've really been missing the East.

Old New Castle, Delaware.

I've been wanting to see a good ol' East Coast deciduous forest. 

I want to go to Walden Pond and quote transcendentalists and suck out all the marrow of life.

I especially miss the ethnic and religious diversity of home.

We were talking about ethnic groups in my Human Geography class.

And I realized I miss the Italians.

I miss the Irish.
I miss how everyone is Irish at St. Patrick's Day.

I miss the Polish last names.
Like Wozniak & Lewandowski.

I miss going to high school with the children of Chinese & Indian immigrants.

I had no idea that black Americans made up only 13% of the US.
I miss them.

I miss being from a place where everyone was Catholic. 
I remember being jealous that everyone in elementary school got to go to CCD and I didn't.

I miss Jews, too. 

Senator Joe Lieberman spoke at BYU today.
He's Jewish, if you didn't know that.

Doesn't that sound nice?

(I sincerely hope none of these pictures are offensive.)


  1. I kid you not I have dreamt about home and Delaware almost every night this week! Autumn makes me miss home!!!!!! I wanna go back!
