Oregonians, Washingtonians, Northern Californians...
Hellllooo! I was wondering if you lovely folks would mind sharing with me some of your favorite parts about living in (one of the aforementioned areas). I am strongly considering making a move at the end of this year to finish my undergrad degree outside of Texas, and the Pacific Northwest is kind of calling to me. I visited Seattle years ago and LOVED IT, and I'd like to visit Portland over the summer if I can do it on the cheap.
Whereabouts are you living? What activities do you like to do that you feel are unique to the area? If you went to college in this part of the country, whereabouts? What are the drawbacks to living there?
I'm still applying to UT at the end of the spring semester for spring 2015 admission, but I'm exploring all kinds of other options as well. The one thing I do know for sure is that I want this to be my last year in Dallas, without a doubt. It's time to sow some oats elsewhere, y'all.
