Where am I living now? I have a great place out in the UWC.

What? You haven’t heard of the UWC? It’s only the hottest up-in-coming neighborhood in Portland.

I can’t believe you don’t know about it. Don’t look at me like that, I’m not judging, just surprised. I thought you knew Portland better than I did.

Anyway, the UWC is jam-packed with great places:  coffee shops, community gardens, nature parks, public libraries. Most of the high schools put on a fairly good musical each season. I wouldn’t really say everything is within walking distance, but, if you like walking you could do a lot of it.

The best thing about the UWC is that people like to just stay home, you know? No one judges you when you watch Star Trek on Netflix until two in the morning so Mr. Spock can keep you company while you attempt to make a rudimentary stop-motion film. If you want to read you don’t have to do it in some coffee shop where everyone is judging you by your book’s cover. In the UWC you can scratch getting dressed and answering the same asinine statement-question of, “Oh, you’re reading a book by Murakami? I love him,” off your list of things associated with reading.

In the UWC you can stay in bed and eat ice cream while you read. We live like kings.

They recently put in a couple of new traffic lights. It speeds up the commute in the morning and gets you home faster after work. Let’s you spend more quality time doing puzzles in front of your fireplace.

I can’t believe you haven’t heard of the UWC.
