Goodbye Oregon

Monday I will be leaving Oregon and heading to Colorado. I'm doing this for a variety of reasons: I miss my family, I need to find a place I can get a job and save up some money and there is a cool school there where I can learn more about jewelry making.

I really love Oregon. I have lived in California, Washington, Arizona, Colorado and now Oregon. I have visited Canada, Mexico, Hawaii, the Caribbean, and almost every state in this country and the Oregon Coast is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places I have ever seen.

What really stands out for me though are the people here in Oregon. I have yet to meet one mean person. I have met more people and made more friends here in six months than I had in fifteen years in California. Just this morning my car wouldn't start because I neglected to put gas in it and my neighbor was over in a few seconds offering to help me. That never happened anywhere else I lived.

I will definitely come back to Oregon. Whether to visit or live I don't know, I have yet to decide where I want to end up permanently, if I end up somewhere permanently at all. I enjoy traveling and going new places, so who knows.
