It's a strange and magical land.

There are so many things that are different here in the North West compared to Southern California.

A lot of it has to do with driving:
People actually do the speed limit.
Say, what?
In SoCal, if you aren't going at least 80 mph people are flipping you off and cursing you to an early death.
And, don't even THINK about using your blinker!  You won't EVER get over.
Here?  Turn on your blinker, and drivers actually let you over.
Oh the humanity!
My road rage has exponentially decreased.

The Weather:
It's over 80F and people think this is a heat wave.
It's about 108F in Southern California at the moment... now THAT is a heat wave.
80F is perfect weather.
People keep telling me to enjoy the nice weather.
I smile and say, "thanks, yea, I will"?
I'm sure that once I make it through a winter I will be like, "Thanks, YES I WILL enjoy the nice weather!"

There are also a TON of AMAZING places to eat and drink.  And oh don't even let me tell you on how I havent been working out or watching my food intake.  But, it's all so delicious!  I like how here most everywhere are independent business rather than food chains.  It's rather endearing.

The Happy Hours and places I've been to so far:
C Bar- Great happy hour, fairly good service
Relish- Great service, terrible food
Gold Dust Meridian- Great happy hour, great service
Green Dragon- Great service, delicious beer
Townshend- Friendly and great service, and delicious kombucha. I can't wait to go back!
Prost- Friendly service.  German food isn't really my thing, so I don't think I can give a fair comment.
Oba- Great service, a bit expensive.

I hope to get more pictures, but I wasn't planning to do much blogging...until I got that blog fever again! 
These are the places that I've been to since I moved here so I tried to remember to the best of my ability.


  1. I am from central New York so I am always surprised by friendly drivers as well!

    1. It's totally strange, isn't it?! lol
