Portland here I come....

And here I thought today was just another monday. my morning was full of panic and meetings. got through the panic fine but my last meeting i found out I am going to Portland tomorrow, For reasons I cannot yet say itsolivia. I had to quickly book a flight and hotel room. I don't even really know where our office is. Should be interesting. I've never been to Portland before. Too bad I don't have any LJ peeps in Portland... the hours on this trip should be reasonable.

Re:
I'll have to check them out. it seems kind of weird to hang out with a LJ buddy who you really haven't read.

Portland is amazing! :-) My ex lives there. Bah. Other than that, it's a great city. Hah. If you can, try to go to McMannamins (they own several spots in town, one being an old high school that is now a restaurant/bar!). Look it up online, and go!

i've only ever driven through portland on the way to somewhere else (san francisco, seattle, vancouver, etc.). you'll have to post your impressions...

I will be sure to update, although I wonder if I will truly experience the city, since I'm working and all alone. If I go out tonight it will be a very big step for me. I lack confidence in new situations when I'm alone. It's times like these when I realize how much power my ex had over me. I think about the prisoner in Shawshank Redemption who cannot adjust to being free.
