Portlander Problems #41 - Guest Post by Leah of The Content Owl

The problems this week come from fellow Portland area blogger Leah of the Content Owl!

1. There are super long waits to get into the best restaurants in town (like multiple hours).  One would think you were waiting to get into a hot nightclub instead of trying to get into brunch at the Screen Door.  But we all wait in those lines, don't we?
2. Telling people you live in Beaverton by choice, and you get THAT look...*
3. Getting upset with your neighbors for not recycling so much so that you take photos and send them to friends/family to shame them. (I will have to Instagram this before we move so you know how bad they are!)
4. Rain pretty much the entire Rose Festival and all of June.  It's supposed to be summer!

Thanks Leah!

If you live in the Portland area and want to share some of your own, I would love if you would submit your Portlander Problems to me. 
I will post yours one of these coming weeks.  E-mail me at

*side note from Kira - I would totally give you THAT look.  The only thing I can count on out there is that I will get lost every time I drive to that area.


  1. Hehehe.... true! I used to get the look for living in Beaverton. And, now, I get the look for living too far east. No winning!

  2. HA! Love the one about Beaverton. Far too true. I get THAT look all the time.

  3. and the rain is back this week :( wa wahhh

  4. I'm so with you on no. 3 but for composting instead. People are pretty good about recycling around here but any time I see food in the garbage, I have to literally hold myself back from pulling it out and putting it in our compost bin. San Franciscan Problems are awfully similar to Portlander Problems.

  5. Haha! Always so true!! I live in Beaverton by choice, too, and I'm proud! ;)


I love to hear from you, and will do my best to respond to your comment! Please no spam :)
