bear with me for a second!
so many times since moving to portland I have thought of posting about this rainy place i live in. but decided to take the higher road and think of the positive! that's what we should do, right? i mean there are just so many things to criticize and believe me I have, but really what's the point? but i had a REALLY hard time moving here and adjusting. it was all so different from anything i have ever really known, and with a slogan like "keep portland weird," you might understand why! i mean really? "keep portland weird?"
from the slow moving people, & traffic, to taxes, hippies, being too good for walmart, 2nd highest unemployment in the nation, and just the lack of common sense, the list could go on (not too mention their crazy liberal agendas)...i keep trying to be positive and push those frustrations aside, but yet they would eventually resurface..."find the good about portland, find the good about this place!" i tell myself, and i truly have found positives that i live off of, and now it is somehow home....
despite that fact i found a funny & true article that seemed to mirror my sentiments (almost exactly) and i had to laugh...while reading it to clint tonight he mostly just rolled his eyes at me (he always does when i go off on portland.) but it was all so true and i didn't even have to write it!!!!...read @ www.knick-knack.com/rants/places/portland-oregon-sucks.html
but then again, i came from texas, and you know what they say about texas people and our pride! how can anything really compare to the best place on earth! i know, so annoying! lol!
thanks for putting up with me tonight!
