That’s me. Made in Oregon. Coos Bay, to be exact, but we don’t need to talk about that. For someone who has only technically lived in Portland for 2 years (last two of high school), I sure do have a ton of Portland pride. Why? because it’s possibly the best city ever. the bees knees. I love it sooooooooo much (and if someone could explain to me what ‘bees knees’ means, that would be helpful, hopefully its nothing dirty). Every corner is pretty, quaint, and just screams ‘hi, i’m portland. i’m unpretentious, chill, artsy, full of good cheap food, beer and coffee, unassuming and dripping with small cute thriving businesses’. Or perhaps i’m just hearing voices.
to be clear my family and many of my best friends are here and I do claim to be from here, proudly. Sorry Coos Bay, you are pretty and beachy, but Portland has my heart.
gotta run, will do a proper post tonight. and i love this sign. it makes me happy.
