- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I first moved several states away from home (Boston) to attend undergraduate studies. Since then, I have only lived at home sporadically for very short periods. I am currently living in Oregon and will soon be married here. I have recently become aware of the fact that my parents and I really don't know each other very well and this has started to negatively affect our relationship. I would not be the person I am today without all of the experiences I had earlier in my twenties, but in retrospect I see how my leaving home was probably very abrupt for my parents. I think that staying at home longer could improve parent/child relationships as the child transitions to adulthood, and potentially be better for society as a whole.
