(no subject)

So... I don't remember if I ever properly introduced myself. I'm known by most as Paradoxx, I've lived in Portland nearly my whole life, and... well, I'm pretty cool, but you'll have to find that out for yourself.

My real reason for this post - I just moved from my dear, sweet, inner SE (36th and powell) to this unexplored territory much farther out (108th and harold).
Now, I'm just barely getting to know the neighborhood, and I want to know if there's anything to do that's not on 82nd. And I'm underage, so unfortunately bars are out. But I don't want to hate this neighborhood. I want to give it a chance. Even if my first few nights here have had four cop cars or very loud, racism-filled screaming fight right outside, I still want to give it a chance.

And where's the best place to take my puppy? You know, a park or some such thing. Something naturey and somewhat quiet.

Help me learn to love outer southeast damnit!

Which comes first, the chicken or the egg?

Oh hi DP,

When changing your name after marriage, what do you change first: Social Security Card or License?

And for those feeling extra helpful, please advise on how to fill out W-4 forms once married because I'm an idiot and I don't want to owe lots of money to the government at the end of the year.

New(ish) to the Area


I just moved back to the area from Amarillo, Texas. Having spent a few years up here before, I still didn't get around to seeing very much as my old job had me trapped in a really horrible schedule. Now I have a better job and will (hopefully!) be starting at PSU in the spring.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and thanks for the awesome community - hopefully I can actually enjoy the city this time around. :)

I've been plagued with anxiety issues since I was about 18 [i'm almost 24 now]. Anyways, I've been suggested/thinking about yoga classes to help me out with this rather than having to rely on prescription medication [which is one of my big fears and stirs up even more anxiety inside].
Does yoga have any merit in this case if any of you can speak from experience?

Wannabe gangsters and "hard" kids.

Dear loud ass kids fighting on my block over some Jerry Springer shit:

There's this place called Vancouver, WA which might suit your drama and wannabe gangster shit a little better than my block. I know you had your lowrider show tonight but as far as I'm concerned it wasn't that impressive. Where I come from the lowriders shows are so fucked the cops don't even try to police it. So kindly stop screaming outside my window, bothering me when I walk to the store, and trying to make someplace more ghetto than it actually is. I don't care how many times you litter or how loud you can scream at me. I don't care about how many shopping carts you can tilt, or how much you can scribble 18th street on a fence. This is Portland Oregon dumbasses. Not Detroit.

Your Kind Northeast Neighbor


I wish I could drop your ignant ass on a street in Los Angeles or Oakland so you could learn to shut the fuck up.
