hey you guys, i'm a college student as a lot of you know, and i'm looking to move when i graduate in a year and a half. there are several areas of the country that are on my list to find out about, and Portland and Seattle (but more Portland) are up there. are jobs plentiful? is housing reasonably priced? how's the weather? how's the shopping? how're the people? anything you can tell me and any reviews you can give me would be very helpful! TIA!
