Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
None yet, but looking forward to it--I'm going to shoot for an affordable and attractive one, though.
I'm into music, film, acting, linguistics, history, books, and learning in general. I'm into many things usually considered "nerdy," but you won't find me at a lot of conventions and certainly not running around in everyday life dressed as some wizard or alien from a book/movie I like. I'm not afraid to admit I like a lot of TV shows, largely because their quality on average is so much higher now than ten years ago--but I usually just rent these or watch on Hulu for time management purposes. In short, they're just a source for inspiration for me, especially where my own creative side is concerned. I'm a bit obsessed with Lost, Naruto, and Doctor Who, and each of those is probably my overall favorite for its respective home country at this point. I spent six years in NYC after living in DFW for the first twenty years of my life, but decided that city was a bit too cutthroat/uptight/expensive/overrated in general for me. I spent a week in Portland a few months ago and fell in love with it on the first day, and after nearly a year of saving up I got here just before New Year's.
What do you love about Portland?
People are disarmingly friendly and helpful, great air quality, nice music scene/venues, great public transport, nice parks, bookstores, easy to get around, and as far as I'm concerned, GREAT weather, if not flat-out IDEAL.
Electronic/Indie Pop/Indie Rock/Post-punk/80s UK pop/indie folk/other folk-related acts here and there.
What's your favorite Portland neighborhood and why?
So far, Hawthorne, due to its clearly indie-oriented crowd...but to be fair, I dont' know the 'hoods here well at all.
