The last 24 hours have been so much fun! Portland is awesome. It really is. I know I need more time here to really justify that but so far the coolest things have happened. I arrived at the Portland International airport about an hour behind schedule (which is actually early according to airport time these days). While on the plane I sat next to a lady that is a history professor at a community college in Portland. She commented on the book that I am reading and we started a full fledged conversation about life in general. Somewhere midway through the flight she gave me her card and said she might need someone to house-sit for her this summer since she is planning on being in Austin. The guy next to her heard us talking and also gave me his card saying he might be in the same predicament. He also said not to look for housing after March since the PSU kids swipe up all of the available housing. Good to know.
