I have lived in Las Vegas my entire life and honestly, I hate it. I hate how noisy it is here. I don’t like how many intoxicated people I see on a daily basis here and most of all, I don’t like that I can’t see the stars at night and that there is hardly anything green here anymore. I absolutely hate how hot it gets here. The heat and I don’t do well together.
Every since I can remember, my family and I would go visit my Grandma in Utah. Lately, I’ve been visiting more than I ever have. This past weekend, I was there and I was sitting outside around 10:30 pm, just looking at the sky because the whole sky was covered in millions of stars that I could actually see! For once, I felt like I belonged somewhere. I felt actual happiness and a sense of relief. I didn’t want to go back to Las Vegas.
You would think that spending 28 years in Las Vegas, I would be use to everything here, but I’m not. I will never be use to the heat, the people, the scenery or anything of Las Vegas because I simply do not belong here. I don’t think I ever have.
Everything in Utah is prettier. It doesn’t get as hot in Utah as it does in Las Vegas and there is actually GREEN.
I’ve said I wanted to move to Utah before and I am always told the same sentence… “If you move, you won’t have anything to do there, like you do here.” Like what? Gamble? Go to clubs? Smoke weed because it’s legal? I hate gambling, I am not a clubber at all, I’ve only been to one club twice and I don’t even smoke weed anymore. The things I love to do is take pictures of scenery, paint and hide/look for rocks, and blog. I can do all those things in Utah and probably enjoy it a lot more than I do here. Besides, I want my daughter to be able to grow up in a place where she can go outside and play with no worry. I don’t have that in Vegas. I want her to grow up with nature.
My grandma has a lot of plants in her yard. She’s got 3 apricot trees, a cherry tree, pecan tree, grape vine, a pomegranate tree, a fig tree as well as many different flowers. I’ve tried to grow things here in Vegas, but they just don’t last. I want to be able to garden.
I have made a decision!
I have made the decision to move to Utah by this time next year at the latest. A few people are probably unhappy about it, but I just can’t live my whole life here in Las Vegas, it’s just not for me. I am miserable here and have been ever since I can remember. I am happy in Utah and feel like I belong there. I’ve just met to many judgmental, awful people in Las Vegas and have a lot of terrible memories, more than good ones.
Here comes some history!
This is an old winery that is on my grandma’s street. It was built in 1868 by John C. Naegle. Click HERE for full history on this winery, it’s actually pretty interesting.
This is what it looks like today. Pretty cool that there’s a piece of history right across the street from my Grandma’s house, right?
