Off to Oregon

I have packed up the back of my Subaru Forester, and tomorrow morning early, my sister Laura and I will set off from Greensboro, North Carolina driving west on I-40. We will probably be listening to the She & Him album we can’t get enough of, or immersed in the teenage vampire angst of the book Twilight, which we’re not afraid to admit we downloaded from iTunes.

A few days later, once we hit Bakersfield, Callifornia, we’ll turn right and head up the coast. Our final destination is Portland, Oregon, where we’ve both decided to settle for the next little bit; Laura, to study ceramics at the Oregon College of Art and Craft; me, to write-write-write.

There are tons of unknowns — where I’ll live, and how — but I am excited about all the possibilities in this venture. Plus, I know I’ll enjoy living in a place where excellent trail heads, cups of coffee and microbrews are just a bike ride away.

Oh! And in other news, Laura built me a new Web site, which you can find at www.christinacooke.net. Check it out!

    I think it’s so awesome that you’re moving to Portland! I’ve always had a crush on that city. Good luck!
