A Walk in the Beautiful Oregon Outdoors

I've made it a goal to get a little exercise this summer, so the other day I walked down to the lake near our house. It was so beautiful! Too bad there's no swimming allowed, because it would've been the perfect day for it.

How do you stay in shape when you sit for a living?


  1. I have been neglecting my exercise... time to get back to it. Your pictures are amazing. My mom was from Salem Oregon, I spent 23 glorious days in the summer of 1995 and I LOVED every minute of it :)

  2. Gorgeous photos!! I never have time to exercise, but I do happen to walk a lot just from the nature of living in Manhattan and not having a car. I haven't been to Oregon since I was a little kid [I grew up in California, so we actually made it up there pretty frequently], it is so gorgeous there! You just don't get that kind of green here.


  3. Hi Jen! I am loving the photos! I haven't been loyal to my excercising regimen lately, but I did work-out yesterday morning with the daughter at the gym. Boy am I hurting today! I've never been to Oregon, but it looks like a very nice place to visit. Tootles!


  4. I absolutely love Oregon. It's such a beautiful state. I absolutely love getting to visit friends out there every so often.

  5. beautiful pictures :) and the way we do it is we make all of our hobbies active (well, other than blogging of course :) when we are done with work or class we're off the the rock climbing gym or even if its a movie and icecream kind of night we bike to the store to pick up the redbox :)
    excited to be your newest follower!

  6. I've always wanted to visit Oregon - it looks like such a beautiful state!

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
