What a month. My second month of living in Oregon has been an example of the life that I've always dreamed of. Although there are still things that come with stress, such as struggling to find that perfect job and getting things paid, I've never been happier. This month was spent exploring as usual. I took some hikes in some new places, one day figuring out that my jacket is indeed not waterproof as previously assumed. I walked in new parts of the city and met some more people. I enjoyed strolls in the neighborhoods, admiring all of the houses. I walked by the river and enjoyed the reflections of the buildings as the sun went down behind them. I couldn't believe when all the trees started blooming already. I attended a show at Mississippi Studios to see Quasi, a band that my favorite drummer is a part of aside from her other band, which happens to be my favorite. I got to meet her and talk to her and the show was energetic which was wonderful. A week later I went and saw another show at the same venue. The opener was Haley Heyndrickx, a girl and her band from Portland which I was very blown away by. I hope to see them at their next show! The headliner was Julien Baker, a sweet girl that I admire greatly. I was grateful that she talked to me before and after her set and also signed my cd. Her music is haunting and heartbreaking but maybe the most beautiful you'll ever hear from a one woman band. It filled me with life and I bet it will be in the best concerts that I see this year. This month was short but beautiful and I hope the rest of the year is just like it.
You can see more of my photos of Julien Baker and Haley Heyndrickx in my Digital Photography as well as more images that I took this month.
Each month I will be posting a Photo of the Month! Also I'll try to work in any requested posts or things I find interesting to post! Enjoy!
