A New Look at Flagstaff
Flagstaff has always been an exciting and interesting town to me. When I decided to go to college here, I wanted to go someplace with a fun outdoorsy atmosphere where there would always be new stuff to do. I think I have found the excitement and adventure I was looking for in the somewhat small and comfortable city of Flagstaff. Through my new experience and my time in Flagstaff, I have found myself to be a stronger and well rounded person.
When I found out the assignment of doing something new in Flagstaff, I was excited because it gave me a chance to make myself get out of my comfort zone and try something different. I first decided that I wanted to go hiking, but then decided it was too cold. By Sunday night, the weekend was almost over and I still hadn’t done anything totally different. So I decided to be bold and ask a new friend, Jim, from class if he wanted to go out and do something. At least I would be doing something with someone I don’t usually hang out with, so that would give me something to write about.
Jim and I decided we would go bowling, which I actually hadn’t done since I’ve been in Flagstaff. We got to the bowling alley and found that many people had the same idea of what to do on a Sunday night. The bowling lanes in Flagstaff are much different than the lanes in my home town. The lanes here are small and there are about 15 of them. There is also only one bowling alley in all of Flagstaff, which is weird because in my home town, we always have to choose between ten different places to go when we decide to go bowling. Since there were so many people at the lanes, the man told us it would be a two hour wait for a lane. So we decided not to wait, and to simply find something else to do.
Jim and I ended up going to the pool hall in town, which I didn’t even know existed.
