Pacific Northwest

Lately, when having conversations with customers at work while diagnosing and troubleshooting their devices, we get onto topics such as if they are local and if they like it here better than where they came from or if they are from here, do they desire to live anywhere else. I always mention how I’d love to live in the Pacific Northwest, but feel silly because it’s a kind of redundant term. I mean it could be called the North Pacific, right? Either way, we would laugh, my customers and I, because being in South Florida on the east coast, many of our seasonal residents and recent permanent residents are usually from the North East.

Then today I was checking out YeahWrite and read an entry where the blogger was talking about the current weather conditions of the Pacific Northwest. I feel vindicated as I didn’t make up this redundant term myself and that actually is what people call it.

I would more than likely love to live there. I would even deal with the cold. I find photos of the area absolutely amazing and love reading novels based in the area. Being surrounded by forests and rivers and lakes and mountains — cold would be worth it.

In other news, I am going to start working toward a goal. I usually just work, eat and sleep and dream of having an actual career. It’s time to stop dreaming and to start doing. I am going to start saving for a professional camera and take my photography to the next level. I purchased two courses on Udemy a while back on photography and I am going to use my time between work and socializing to go through them. Also, I am thinking maybe take some coding courses for web development. As it will probably take a bit to save for a professional full-frame DSLR camera.
