Looking for your dreams!

Hello Portland! My name is Sean and I’m new to this community. (Though my fiancé _sailorstar_has been a member for ages.)

I’m actually here to ask for some help on a bit of research that I’m working on. What I want to do is find a pattern. Actually a missing link, has baffled many psychologists, politicians, and statisticians, for years. I want to know, “Why so many bright individuals with potential struggle to achieve their dreams?”
I believe that there is something, one key, that will unlock it all. Personally I think it’s opportunity, but that would be the popular opinion. I think it’s an excuse.

So DPers...

Where can I get a cheap but functional sewing machine. I'd like to brush off the old sewing skills, and I don't need anything too schmancy. Should I just suck it up and go to sears? Any brand recommendations?

Random Stuff Thursday

1: What do y'all think of the new West Elm store that opened in the Pearl District? Is it minimilistic enough for you?

2: I love local strawberries! Have you had some yet?

3. Speaking of fruit, there is a Japanese cosmetic store that just opened by BiBo used to be, have you seen it?

So we're moving to Aloha, picking up our keys on the 10th. I don't know anything about the area, so advice and suggestions—things to do, places to avoid, etc.—are welcome.

My husband used to live in San Diego and is wondering how the lack of sun will affect him. Does anyone here use those full-spectrum lights recommended for SAD? Are they affordable and easily available? What is the best way to use them?

We are also looking at trading in our two old cantankerous, gas-guzzling monstrosities for a single more eco-friendly vehicle. We've looked at hybrids, but are also interested in biodiesel. Does anyone know if there's a decent support network for biodiesel vehicles around Portland and the outlying area?

Finally, I'll be looking for a new job once we get up there. I've been working as an administrative assistant for a decent company and I'm excellent at it, but it's not exactly the most fulfilling work. I do a lot of volunteer work with animal rescues and I'd love to work for a shelter or vet—or any kind of socially beneficial organization—but because I lack a degree or any certifications would be limited to the lower-rung positions that seem to be in short supply. So, if anyone can offer advice for my job search beyong OregonLive, it will be much appreciated!

Thanks to everyone for all your help, you guys are the best.

so, what should i do on sunday, and do any of you freaks want to join me?

nothing as far as the coast.  saturday market is ok, but is there anything cool going on this weekend?  aside from the rain festival, that is.  unless there is some quiet and obscure segment of which i am not aware.

i should probably just raid powells and curl up on the couch and read, but try to talk me out of it.

Made it.

Finally made it to Portland. Only took us 20 hours. Would have gotten to the house earlier but my friend made me do a victory lap around Portland.

So finally, 2 years, a ton of money and a billion question on here, I made it.

So tell me, I need good coffee, I in the Concordia neighborhood, I am willing to go pretty much whereever, I just don't want to get lost, so where can I go for some really good coffee?

Summer Sale!

I do home parties for Passion Parties and we just came out with a new summer catalog. I'm offering a weekend sale of 10% off if you use the code "LIVEJOURNAL" on my website - http://www.passionpurrfect.com Sale ends Sunday the 5th of June at midnight. Also if anyone is looking to host a party, have a girls night out its a lot of fun, educational and a great chance to see some cool stuff.

Work opportunity

I am posting this for my friend:

Full time graduate student needs afternoon child care for three children ages 9, 12 and 14 at home in SW Portland starting in September 2005 and continuing until following June 2006. Mon through Fridays approximately from 2-8pm needed with occasional Saturdays. Possibility exists to continue a second year. Ability to cook dinner for the children and to drive a car is desired.

Contact Judy Fischbach at 503-244-2348.

I did this job for her last year while I was in school and I really liked it. Judy would always leave me instructions for what to make, it wasn't anything complicated usually heating up frozen lasagna or fish sticks. The kids are very self sufficient, so I usually ended up reading a book or watching TV with them. If you choose to call her tell her that you heard about the job from Raya.
Worky Work!

Remember me?

I've noticed this for a long time, but never remembered to ask...help me out...

While riding the MAX across the river, you can see a sort of warehouse...or something...that says "Amazon.com" in huge letters. Well, right below that is written in ginormous blue paint "Wouldn't Fit Here." What's the story with this? Graffiti? How the HELL could you graffiti something that huge and obvious without getting caught? Google turns up nothing...

Trimet issues

On the issue of trimet:

I filled out a comment card indicating my view that fareless square should be kept in place and got the following response:

I am happy to say that Fareless Square will not be going away - we are good
for another two years at least.

Trimet Customer Services

My original comment below:

->Comment=I'm just writing to state that I believe fareless square is one of
the many benefits of living in our fair city. It's smart from a planning
perspective because it encourages use of public transportation in the
central city and reduces congestion in the process. If it were up to me,
we'd all pay taxes to cover the costs of trimet, and it would be much
cheaper to ride than it is now. Oh, in a perfect world! In any case, do
whatever it is you need to do to meet costs, but don't forget about
sustaining our committment to good planning, environmental sustainability,
or livability. And if this proposed cancellation is due to 'homeland
security' issues, you'd be better off choosing a different route. I don't
want to see Portland thinking it needs to allow police fare-checkers on to
my bus to harass its patrons when a simple question might do.

coffee anyone?

hey, does anyone feel like meeting a stranger?
a the rose festival carnival is starting today at 5 and i'd really like to go (admissions free tonight)

Hello! I'm just a chick coming on back to the Northwest after spending a good 7 months in the Mid-East chilling in the top state of the Obessed. No one here knows what "public transit" is.. The state is nixing the recycling program in most cities because no one was using it.

It's time for me to come home.

but here's the catch.. I'm poor.

I'm looking for a room to rent from 175 to 250 ish(until I can get my money situation straightened out). Here's a link for craigslist


Help a girl out.

Thankful Thursdays, Portland-Style!

1. Seeing a family of snails on a Southeast Portland residential sidewalk, right after it had rained all day long (they were soooo cute!).

2. The fragrant roses in the gardens in the Ladd's Addition neighborhood.

3. Getting caught in a refreshing sudden rainstorm.

4. The opening of Eastbank Farmers' Market season (even though I am stuck at work tonight and will have to miss it)

5. Locally-made chocolate-covered figs that are sold at farmers' markets.....yum!

Odd question, does anyone know if PCC requires motorcycles to have a pass? I plan on riding to my summer class but I've never seen a sticker style parking pass from PCC so I'm thinking motorcycles might not need a pass at all.... Anyone know for sure?

[edit] Nevermind, I harnessed the power of the Internet to discover that motorcycles park for free!!!!!!!!!!!

Portland Colleges

I am planning to go back to college sometime soon but I am not sure how much it would cost me. I can get scholarship up to $1,000 a month but I don't know if that would be enough and if it is...will it only be good for a junior college, state or a university? I am getting feedbacks now so I will know how to plan it once the right time start.

How about dorms? Do they come by cheap or is it better renting with someone?

I have about 1 1/2 years of college in the Philippines but I wouldn't wanna go back there but rather finish it here and preferrable get a B.S. Nursing.

Any tips? I would like to concentrate studying and wouldn't want to work....maybe part time.

Movin' Out musical...

Okay this is sort of a long shot, but does anyone out there know where someone could obtain Movin' Out tickets?? Like... uhh cheaper than you'd find through Ticketmaster? I'm trying to convince my family to go.

Book Club

Are you interested in reading one book a month?

Are you interested in making some new friends?

If so, consider joining pdxbookclub. We are about to decide on our next book. We read one book per month, then meet on the first Thursday of each month (July 7th is the next meeting) from 5-7 at Cornelius Pass Roadhouse.

We are opening membership to folks who are interested in making the commitment to read a book a month, and meet one day each month for some social time with others who have read the book.

If this sounds like something that you are interested in, come on over to pdxbookclub, make a post telling us a little about yourself, and click to join. We are looking for folks who are genuinely interested in attending the meetings, as well as reading the book.

In search of legal advice

I have a certain legal conviction standing in my way from various governmental applications and was wondering how to go about getting a "disposition that does not involve an adjudication of guilt" put in instead of guilty. See, I wasn't thinking clearly at the time, and didn't ask for legal counsel when it happened.

This would have been approximately January 2004.

Low cost and/or free would be best.
