Oregon

I'm thinking about moving to Oregon. I graduate from college next year and I'm tired of Texas weather. Tell me of Oregon in general and Portland specifically.

    > I'm tired of Texas weather
    You will learn to love tx weather

    >Tell me of Oregon in general and Portland specifically.
    You have portland(shithole) to Eugene being the most jobs of the state outside some really niche other places which if you hate texas weather won't be going to.

    You have little chance of owning a house like in texas
    Pay may look higher but cost of living will fuck you
    The roads are terrible
    Weather is shit 364 days of the year
    You'll need a car most likely which increases the cost of living
    There is no "hidden good spot" of anywhere with decent pay

    The people who live down in portland migrated from seattle and now are migrating to Eugene to get away from people exactly like you and "brown ppl". They will never say it but it's there.

    How many times have you actually been or just seen pics and think it's comfy? Also what job field, the market there is actually moving out due to costs so it's kinda important.

      I've never been but I haven't been anywhere outside of Texas since I was a kid.

      My job field would be law enforcement. I was planning on applying for one of the local police departments after I graduate, before I got a bee in my bonnet about getting out of the state.

        If you're going to be a cop in Oregon I would strongly, strongly advise you not to be a Portland city cop. Be a cop in Hillsboro, Oregon City, Canby, or somewhere else on the periphery of the metro area. Portland is full of junkies and hobos, and the local government actively restricts cops' ability to keep the peace because they're afraid of making literal schizos and heroin addicts feel dehumanized.

        You need a car in NYC depending where you live.

        You have to be really stupid or something to not afford a home in texas that would be comparable to that of Portland->Eugune corridor. Seriously a house in texas might be ~200k but commute in is fine, in the places OP is looking at we are talking low 400's and the pay being meh above what texas would offer for skilled labor.
        >Y’all will have to do better to keep us out.
        Texas has some crummy weather but it's not as bad as it can be in OR once you realize yard work is a thing

          Austin is more expensive than Portland

            Ok maybe Austin passed Portland in the last year but the other TX cities are still cheap as fuck.
            Also look at salary to CoL ratio

                what the fuck are you even rambling on about?
                you're supposed to rent before buying anyway, and you speak as if everyone had 500K in pocket cash or as if embracing the mortgage garden gnome was a good idea

    Oregon is great for us black folk, they got rid of all the laws that target us like traffic violations so you can do whatever you want behind the wheel and if yall got keeds in school they can't be disciplined and they got rid of math and reading standards for gradderashun because they were racist plus the governor keeps giving money out like covid relief and repertations just for black folk. In short I love oregon

    Eugene is probably the city to go to. It is not a shithole like Portland
    It's not big but it's big enough there's enough going on. Good balance in size.
    The weather is great
    The people are degenerates

      Could be right.
      I lived in Eugene for several years. The rent is pretty high (though nothing close to Portland) and the homeless people are pervasive and irritating. However it's relatively close to spectacular groves of ancient trees, and the city has pleasant neighborhoods of abundant gardens and bungalows. There's a decent variety of bars and restaurants and a really impressive quantity of weed dispensaries and strip clubs. The culture of the city is dominated by "Go Ducks" University of Oregon students and a range of hippiedom from communes to co-ops and yoga classes.

    As someone who recently moved from Portland to Texas.

    DO NOT MOVE TO OREGON.

    Oregon's politics is shit unless you're a leftist that loves homeless people and seeing your taxes go to useless shit.

    Salary and CoL in Oregon do not match. Texas you will have 100% a better quality of life. If you love rain 9 out of 12 months then go ahead and move to Oregon. I grew tired of that.

      Not that anon but it's unreasonable to think people can live in a place where it's constantly above 75 most the year. Anyone with a little girth under their belts will be sweating incurring swamp ass and moist pits. Besides the food is healthier there.
