my aesthetic is the kid on the playground who tells all the other kids that ring around the rosie is about the black plague
okay guys i know next to nobody will reblog this but please
if a family member has ever made a “harmless” comment (what have you done to your hair/what the hell are you wearing/etc) to you about your appearance and it hurt you, please reblog this, i need to show my mum and step dad the notes.
Things I have been learning about moving to Portland :
*So fucking green up there
*Karl and I probably won’t be able to breathe properly for weeks because of all those green things holy fuck
*Voodoo Donuts are for tourists and assholes (Blue Star 5evr)
*Brazil-status soccer enthusiasm
*A million neighborhoods like how the fuck are we even supposed to decide where to live????
*I had no idea there were coyotes so I guess we’ll be back to worrying about them eating our cat
*Karl should step up his mustache game
*Finally put all those jackets we bought in preparation to move to WA to use
*Umbrellas are for losers
We’re going to try and stay really positive about this because honestly even if Karl did get a better job here, we just…don’t want to live here. Like the thought of planting roots in this city kind of makes us die inside. So fingers crossed that everyone understands where we’re coming from and support our decision.
I’m making a binder with all the info I can find and some other stuff to keep us super motivated!
Also, we discovered that if Karl stays in his same line of work (maintenance tech for an apartment complex) he’ll make at LEAST 10k more AND unlike here some management companies as do free on-site living for their employees in Oregon. So additional pros of moving there are :
*More money = being able to pay off our debt, afford a car payment, maybe even become HOMEOWNERS one day
*FREE FUCKING RENT
