Figuring It Out As I Go…











{February 8, 2009}   What OR Has Taught Me…

I’ve learned a few things since moving to Oregon…

  • It IS possible for me to drive the speed limit…sometimes even UNDER it!
  • I really like snow, even driving in it!
  • I like to volunteer to do random things I wouldn’t normally get to do
  • I don’t have to have fake nails and eyelashes or visit the tanning beds daily
  • I think I used to be a snob (shut it if you already knew this!) 😉
  • I don’t have to buy a new car every year. In fact, I can even pay my yearly registration…more than once! (I do get a new car when this one is paid for though…23 months!)
  • I can sit still, literally and emotionally
  • I’m really a simple tastes kind of girl (this one will be hard for some to believe!)
  • Family is awesome…brothers, sisters, parents, nieces, nephews…I love being a part of a family that is close and loves each other! Probably one of the BIGGEST changes for me 😀

And of course, some things never change…I still love tats and piercings, and driving, music and photos are still my escape 🙂

The move to Oregon hasn’t been all bad. Some parts are still hard as hell, but believe it or not, I think it has really benefited everyone involved, for a multitude of reasons that I’m not really ready to go into. I’ll get there though. We all know I love my brain dumps 😀
