Hello friends. In 2007, I moved out to Portland from my small hick town in Iowa to be with a girl. After 4 years we broke up, and I still live here. Being alone in Portland has made me realize how empty and shallow this promise of salvation through eco-worship and liberalism was, and I am tired of it. I do not want to live here anymore. At the moment, I am currently studying psychology at Portland State University. A few weeks ago, after years of indecision, I decided to become a Christian and stick with it no matter what. My plan now is to go into Christian counseling, maybe even some type of pastoral work. Actually I like that idea very much.
I would like to move to a small town, where I can continue my education, maybe in a Christian environment, although I'm not opposed to doing my education online. I do not have a car, so it would be cool if I could get around wherever I live with a bicycle, preferably without rocks being thrown at me by troglodytes. I'm not looking to be bored out of my mind either, a couple good restaurants (I am a vegetarian, but love pancakes), maybe some parks.
So... where should I go?
