Oooh, awesome picture, mate! (I seriously love your sunset/sunrise shots! )
Living near the coast is a rather fun experience, yes, but I wish that the beaches would be warm year-round! In the winter to early spring, it's usually pretty chilly and raining (big surprise there!) But it's quite beautiful in the summer.
(And I don't mean to be kind of nosy by reading yours and SrS's comments, but I've been on the Reed College campus, and it's really beautiful! I love the design of the overall building, as well as the fact that it rests near a lake!)
Hmmm... rain in Oregon... could've never guessed, mate! And cold in winter or not, you're still a lucky pirate.
Psssh, it's no problem. You're a friend, you have stalking privileges.
So you've visited Reed, eh? AWEsome! *goes all dreamy-eyed* I seriously wish I could go there... it's like my dream college... I've heard they have one of the best English/Literature programs in the nation... and, well, you know me and writing. And it's always a plus to have a beautiful campus! (If only, if only, the woodpecker cries, the price for that school weren't as high as the skies! )
Yeah that's one of the reasons I'm not fond of the U of M in Minneapolis... the entire campus is just a large stretch of buildings... veeery little nature anywhere. Me, I need to see green to be happy.
Anyway! Thanks once again for the comment & fav!! Rum to ye!
XD I know! Hard to believe, huh? Yeah, I suppose so.
Alright, good to know...I think.
It is a very English/Literature-based school. One of the represenatives from Reed College came to our High School a few days ago. It sounds very interesting, and they definitely support creativity. Though, unfortunately, the price for admission is really quite high...
Same here. I love schools that are surrounded by nature; it really helps me...I dunno how to word it....think better? I'm not exactly sure how to describe the feeling.
If you want to look at routes, you can always go here: [link]
We've been wanting to take a trip across the southwest for a long time -- I have an aunt in NM -- I hope we get to do that soon! I've been across the SW by train before, but I was only 3, so I don't remember much except for the sweet Santa Fe t-shirt that I got on the train.
I've thought about colleges in that area too, but it's a bit too far away... like a whole country away... *falls into daydreams of living out west*
Speaking of distance, I know someone who's moving from Seattle to Maryland. Talk about a big move!
heh, well at least you can still say "been there, done that, got the t-shirt" ^^ sweet! hope you can visit the SW soon... one of my close friends is going to be moving down to Arizona just after our graduation, maybe I'll have to take a train to visit her.
yeah, really. okay, half a country away for me, but still. aye, agreed, we have an accord, and all that jazz.
