So far while in Montana I have met many nice people and have two close friends. I have come across some people that I feel I will never escape from, such as this one girl in the program who said "yeah, like, half of southerners are dumb as hell." As she said this i realized she was hiking in American Eagle jeans, for EIGHT miles so I can not be to offended by her comment. This experience so far has made me realize that people are generally the same everywhere, both good and bad. One thing that is totally different from Columbia is the landscape. The city here is in a valley and at night i can see most of Missoula from my dorm room. It is odd having to adjust to living in a dorm again after having my own apartment but I will manage.
