Dear 100 Hour Board,
I got a job about a year ago where I work at home, and at the time, one of the qualifications was to live near one of our company's offices, so I figured I'd always have to stay nearby, but I was recently told that they don't mind if I move anywhere in the US, and I've always wanted to live all over, but now that I can, I can't decide where I'd want to go. Anyway, I'm curious, if you could live anywhere, where would you want to go?
-My Name Here
OREGON COAST ALL THE WAY. Ever since my trip to Salem, OR last summer I've known I belong in the North West. The beaches are foggy and cool and beautiful and serene, the air smells like pine trees, and you get to drive around all these adorable berry farms.
Hopefully soon I'll get to go again with Pebble for our belated honeymoon trip. I'd love to end up in Oregon someday, in a nice modern A-frame inspired house in the forest where I can enjoy the cooler air and fog. I loved that even though there were bigger cities (Salem isn't small, keep in mind), everything still felt sort of small and intimate because there were so many trees everywhere. Plus, I'm a sucker for weird and quirky cities like Portland. Plus, all the coastal towns were SO cute and fun. I loved seeing whales and eating at a cool restaurant overlooking the beach with my family, hiking at Silver Falls State Park and seeing LITERALLY 10 WATERFALLS in one hike. We would sit on my uncle's porch at the end of the day with clouds brushing the coastal mountain range and the blackberry brambles in his backyard. I can think of no better way to live.
I think my fiancee and I are eventually gonna move to Texas, probably around Austin. Here's why:
- That area of Texas is one of the most diverse parts of America.
- It's way warmer than Utah.
- Austin is a really nice city. It's an up and coming tech area that's really good for start ups.
- Also that Barbecue though.
- And it will be nice to get outside of Utah.
If I could move outside the US, I would probably choose Brazil or Morocco.
I'd love to live in New York City, or at least close enough to it that I could easily take a day trip there. Boston maybe?
I would LOVE to live in the Pacific Northwest! Probably around the Seattle or Portland areas, or in Vancouver, Washington. I love the weather there, I love the trees, I love how close they are to the coast, it would be awesome. My husband is from Washington, and if we moved there we'd be close to his family, too, which would be nice. I like big cities, but I also like being close to nature, so the general Portland-Seattle area ticks all my boxes. Now my only problem is trying to figure out when to actually leave Utah--we want to save money here for a few years, and my husband and I both have jobs we like here, but I'm scared we'll fall into a routine and end up living here forever.
