My Portland Wish List

One week from today, I will be living in downtown Portland. I will be setting off on a voyage of education, self discovery, and personal growth.

Before I embark on the journey of mine, I wanted to make a list. A list of things I want to accomplish. They may be related to finding out who I am, and what I am made of. They may be risks that I normally would not take. They may also be a leap of character and faith. Most of all, they will all be to better who I am, and get me closer to what I want to become.

1- Explore the city at least once a week.

2- Make at least 2 life long, true and genuine friends.

2a- Not be afraid to let people be my friend.

3- Talk to someone new every week.

4- Not be afraid of who I am, namely the fact that I find men attractive.

5- Work on my relationship with my Heavenly Father.

6- Say yes to something I would normally say no to, once a week.
7- Try out for a play.


  1. Good list. Tell us how it is going. I can tell you the making of life long, genuine friendships takes a lot of work. I have several very good friends from high school who I have managed to stay up with. But it's a fair amount of work. It's easy when you live far apart and are all busy to loose contact. Have a great adventure my friend.

  2. 8- Go have dessert at Papa Haydn
    9- Saturday market and eat elephant ears.
    10- Dragon boat festival in June.
    11- canon beach & starfish
    Have so much fun!
    I had a lot of those same goals (minus the same sex attraction bit.) Be kind to yourself. Big changes are a big deal. Take a few umbrellas.
