Sometimes I feel trapped in Oregon. Portland is two hours away and I wish it was closer. I can’t wait for the post-grad lifestyle so that I can take a long weekend and go explore places. Although, realistically, I doubt I will have the sufficient funds to do the type of cool shit I want to do, and I will miss the college lifestyle. I think for my creativity’s sake, it would help me to get out and explore the places around me more often. I don’t know why I don’t.
