I Have Something Against LDS Affiliated Schools

BYU, Southern Virginia, BYU-Idaho, BYU-Hawaii, and all the other not-really-Mormon-but-basically-are schools are the schools I am talking about.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but not being allowed to wear flip flops or pajama pants to class seems pretty lame to me. Being told how late you can stay up, no boys past midnight (cause that's when the Spirit goes to sleep), etc.... these things are all ridiculous. I'm probably going to get yelled at for saying such things but once again, I don't care.

I guess that's why we have freedom of choice. That doesn't mean I can't talk schmack about it. I mostly hate that it's so controlled. I'm not a controlled kind of person. Maybe that's why I went to Northern Arizona University (which is NOT a hippie school by the way).

BYU-Hawaii is the exception to the lack of cultural diversity. There, over 50% of the population is international. At the other schools you are most likely to find students to be cut out from the same mold. White, Mormon, etc... That's fine, if you're into that.

When I lived in PA, I tried to convince all of my college age friends NOT go to the BYU's. It didn't work. Then I realized that for them, attending a school with more than 1 person who believes the same as they do, would be pretty awesome. So I do get it. I really do. It's just not for me.

So now my heart is totally softened. My friend takes pictures for people who have lost their baby. I'm sad now. So I'm gonna end this post. Till later that is...
