Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
Considering moving to Portland
My partner, Niko, and I have been together 20 years, 21 this coming summer, married 9 months. He's currently a vet tech, though exploring new possibilities and I work from home, in data management, and as a writer. We have 2 pugs but in the past our home has been home to as many as 9, most of which we baby sit from time to time. C'mon, we're not that crazy. Lol! Seriously, though. To help make ends meet we pug sit and since we know and love the breed, it's an absolute pleasure. Each of us have different tastes when it comes to reading and television (he likes graphic novels and reality shows, I read regular prose and prefer my dark dramas) but we come together for things like movies (especially TCM!) art, and musical theatre. Music, I'm pretty out there, listening to most everything but especially world music and anything electronica so I can plug my headphones in while I work and focus on what needs to get done. We both love traveling, Disney, and hanging out with close friends. Fort Lauderdale has been our home since Niko and I met but it's time for a change. The energy just isn't here for us anymore and we look forward to exploring cities that are more diverse, culturally vibrant, and much more progressive.
What do you love about Portland?
Haven't been yet but we're both very excited to be going this coming April!
I like all kinds, from pop to classical and almost everything in between. Love Billie Holiday or Dexter Gordon on a rainy day while sipping a nice red but while I work it's gotta be something hard and fast that allows me to disconnect with the rest of the world and focus on my work. When I write, I like to listen to music that will inspire me, based on the type of story/scene I'm working on. Oh, and did I mention we like musical theatre?
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
Don't know any yet but since I'm originally from Brooklyn, New York, I think we might like to try checking out Portland's Brooklyn. Okay, okay. So I'm the one that wants to check it out. Lol!
Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!
