I need help. Sep. 15th, 2008 @ 06:19 pm
pretty_sure

There's a large possibility I may be moving to Brookings.

I'm from a growing city in Southern California and I've been told that Brookings is more of a small beach town with a lot of older people.

One, it that true?; and two, where is the nearest shopping/city area?

I kind of dread asking this question because it sounds so dumb and kind of superficial, but where is the nearest mall? I ONLY ASK BECAUSE I NEED A JOB AND I ASSUME THAT A MALL MAY BE MY BEST BET!

Thank you so very much!

Most random harebrained idea ever:

My friend and I would like to road trip to Salt Lake City to see Leathermouth play. The actual concert is about $15 and is all ages. We figured the gas cost and it'll be around $230. We really can't afford that so we decided to see if any Oregon fans would wanna go?

This is gonna be a slightly ghetto trip, i.e. Sleeping in the car and probably BEING in the car almost the entire time. (I'm bringing a sleeping bag.)

Anyone hardcore enough to hang with two, or more, strangers for two days to see the AMAZING LEATHERMOUTH?

We, me and my friend, are a 23 yr old gal(robot) and a 26 yr old dude(fagbot). Neither of us are threathening in anyway, we just have random crazy ideas that we try to make work.

The "plan" AKA CRAZYNESS will begin with our departure at 4am on Saturday morning, hopefully arriving around 3pm. The show starts at 6pm, we think, at Club Sound. Once the show is over we'll sleep in the car until morning then we'll drive back and arrive Sunday evening.

HELP US MAKE THIS WORK PLEASE.

Sidenote: please be 18+, have your $58 up front, and not randomly kill us. I'll have mace! We could also look into splitting a hotel room if all folks involved are interested.

Thanks!

hi everyone,

I am a 29 year old female who immigrated to this country a few years ago. I've been living in Southern CA since that time (cuz that's where my parents brought me) but I am finally getting the heck out of here. I mean I like where I live (overall) but So Cal is a bit hallow, there's no real sense of community and I just want out.

Thankfully I got into Lewis and Clark Law School and also University of Washington Law School. So right now I am debating between living in Portland or Seattle.

I am leaning towards Portland because I have heard so many great things about the city and Oregon in general. So I am now venturing to ask YOU what you like about Portland. What are some great places to live. My boyfriend will be moving with me and we can afford about $1,350.00 for an apartment/house and we would like to live in a nice area that's not in the Suburbs. We want to live in a more urban area but also want to live in a location that has a sense of community and tons of shops, etc. for us to walk to. I don't want to drive places... cuz that's what I have to do now in So Cal and I can't stand it. I just want to live in a great community with chill outdoorsey non pretentious people.

So can any of you give me advice about what your city is like, what are some great up and coming places to live? what do you like the most? what do you like the least? what's the job market like? cost of living? just give me all the dish to get me pumped.

This is the first time that I'll be living away from my family since we moved to this country... so I am a little bit apprehensive.

OH ONE MORE THING

My BF just got his degree in Mechanical Engineering and he would like to work for firm that does sustainable energy, etc. kind of like wind/water/solar power or a green construction company. So do any of you know of firms that do this type of work ANYWHERE in the state of OR?? it does not have to be in Portland.

The Human Canvas Project is almost here... THURSDAY August 21st!!! Aug. 17th, 2008 @ 12:05 pm

Tonight is our last rehearsal before the day of, and things are going GREAT!

We've all put a lot of time, effort and yes, even money into making this happen. It happens at the Fez Ballroom (316 sw 11th) THIS THURSDAY August 21st, and only costs 7 bucks.

This, of course, being many girls nude/semi nude onstage painted white, with video/images/etc projected onto them from 5 or so sources while my musical outfit, Sad Music for Happy Humans, makes thick mindfuck music that builds to utilizing dubstep/dnb/electro/live sampled drum beats. Since this is happening

Afterwards will be some sweet IDM/breakbeat music by the esteemed DJ Tan't, and longtime Portland music makers Ryze + Fall and DJ Harp will be giving us all some great LIVE Drum and Bass and Dubstep to dance the night away with.

I do hope you'll all attend, there is a great buzz going on about this show and I think it's going to end up being fabulous! But it will be moreso if YOU are there.... come say hi!

A great place to find new fun adventures in Oregon is the 365 Days in Oregon, part of the Travel Oregon website.  I clicked on 6/29 the picture of llamas, and was taken to a website on how you can go on a hike with an accompaning llama.  You can even submit your own photo and event information to the website.

Has anyone taken the zero week Spanish classes? Spanish 315 Pronunciation and Phonetics taught by Davis or Spanish 307 Oral Skills taught by Wacks? I am signed up for the 315 class, but I wanted to know if anyone had any opinions? Thanks!

Grants Pass, Oregon Jun. 13th, 2008 @ 03:54 pm

My husband and I have decided to move to Grants Pass, Oregon, and some of the reasons are below:

-we love the outdoors
-want to live in Southern Oregon
-live about an hour from the beach
-live in a small (but not too small) town
-live close to a larger town for more job opportunities (Medford, 20 min. drive apparently)

What do you think of Grants Pass?

It's OK to send both negative and positive aspects of the town.

We'll be in Oregon in August.  Saying I'm excited is an extreme understatement! 

Inter-library loan May. 9th, 2008 @ 09:35 pm

I suppose I could ask this question at the library, but it never occurred to me until now, and right now the library is closed, and I can't locate the information on their website.

So back in Iowa, we had this thing called inter-library loan, where libraries not connected to each other would, for a fee that depended on the library but was never more than $2 in my experience, ship a desired book to your library. (They'd search a database of books owned by libraries in Iowa, submit a request, and the first library owning that book that had it available to lend out would fill the request and ship it out.) I already know that the Multnomah county library has something very similar between other Multnomah county library locations, except that it's free. Still, I want to know if there is a way to get books from libraries in other Oregon counties shipped to a library here in Multnomah county. Because from searching on their web site, I already know that the books I'm looking for are not there. I want to broaden my search to other libraries. Does anyone know if they have this service?

EDIT: Thanks to gypsy_owl for finding the link for me! Thank you!

OHP Intake appointment phone number? May. 9th, 2008 @ 04:20 pm
lillakat
I receive SSI and have been told I am eligible therethrough for the Oregon Health Plan. I've filled out the app already and I'm pretty sure I've mailed it off but I still need to schedule an intake appointment with them so they can determine for sure whether or no I qualify. I've gone to the DHS website and tried to find the right phone number but it was really close to impossible to find anything and the one place nearish me I tried to call had had their phone number disconnected.

Can anyone in this online community help me find the info I need? I'm in Multnomah County.

Love and peace,
LillaKat
