What a month! This month I got my Associates of Fine Arts degree in Photography! Which meant finals but also the end of the year show of all the graduates work in the art department and also graduation itself. My sister came to see me walk and it at least seemed like most of my family was proud of me. Also the most fun part of this month was visiting wonderful Portland, Oregon! I've been waiting for this trip since last October and I had a fantastic time with my friend Marissa. I think I fell in love with Portland, it is the most perfect and beautiful city. We did so much, mostly we walked around and enjoyed the city. From beautiful Downtown lined with trees and big parks with the Art Museum and a very cool Aerial Tram to southeast and the Hawthorne District with it's breathtaking neighborhoods and interesting streets and incredible shopping. We walked across bridges and ate the best food that we have ever had and rode the light rail everyday. It was so perfect and I was so elated the entire time that I was there. We walked so much that our feet ached. We decided to take the bus to Cannon Beach one day and it was so worth it, I've never seen anything more breathtaking. It rained so lightly that you couldn't even feel it and we walked the beach and saw Haystack Rock. Then walked up to the forest and found a hidden trail and beach. The forest was like nothing I have ever seen and I felt so happy there. It was just amazing. By the end of the day we were ready to get back to Portland and we went and got really fancy cocktails! The last day we had finally master public transportation and hardly needed a map and a guy thought that we were locals, we felt pretty cool. We ate at a place on the 30th floor with the best view of the city, where we tried really hard to be fancy and failed. We ate at food carts and had the most amazing milkshakes! The Saturday Market was by far the coolest and biggest farmers and flea market I've ever been too. We got our last cup of the best coffee in the world and were pretty sad to leave. I loved it there and I hope that I can get back to it soon!
Here are some photos from 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!
