It's been a big last couple of weeks — I graduated college from Mizzou and after a not-so-leisurely two weeks at home, headed out West. I'm currently at The Oregonian for a summer internship and loving every minute of it. Portland and the Northwest Pacific are everything I had hoped they would be. For graduation, I got an iPhone and just like all iPhone users, I went crazy with Instagram the first week. I'm not a big picture-taker when I'm in the car, but it took us three days to get to Portland, and I had a lot of time on my hands, especially with the iPhone, which never left my hands (thanks Fruit Ninja). I'll be posting pictures from my assignments at The Oregonian here eventually, but for now, enjoy the view from my car window as my mom and I travelled out West.
