18. yeah. people here are generally more laid back which is kind of nice

 

not so much of the urban facade....more genuine people so that is a plus. But I can say it has been shocking to me to see how WHITE this place is compared to Portland. Nothing wrong with white. I'm a white guy. But I think a highly diverse environment promotes more complex worldview. It would be easy for people to be insulated from what is really going on in the world if this is all they know--and for quite a few I've met so far....it IS all they know.

This has to change. Maybe I can do my small yoeman's work on that. But I know I won't be alone. I look forward to networking.
