is a liberal, hippie town that doesn't deserve to have consumers' hard-earned cash. Everywhere I went people were rude and stuck up. It is beautiful but the people make it not worth going back. It's not a recommended stay unless you go out of the city, maybe then you will have a better time than I did!
I'm 16, and I've lived in
15 years. Not that hippie-ish... but generally liberal. But it's pretty diverse. I've nevergone to the Eugene Celebration, but I hear it's pretty cool.
Yeah, the "what's yours is mine" hippies and beggers do get on your nerves. A great percentage of the community lives in a bubble, too -- unaware that there's another world out there. Longer duration here allows you to see it's rather provincial in
. Many folks I ran into weren't as sophisticated or cultured as I would have preferred or expected, sad to say. Obvious amenities not always found anywhere else -- Eugene does have its accessible and lush nature, plus the great tracks for bicycling.
, for being a somnolent, provincial, and boring place! I managed to get a degree in philosophy at University of Oregon, even though I have struggled with academics all my life. I don't know what I would do without the mind-enhancing experience of U of O. If Eugene had been a lively, interesting place, I never would have graduated. Eugene is the perfect college town, because the climate is oppressive, and most of the people are oblivious.
I had a great time in
. I went to brush something off my shoulder and it turned out to be the floor.
does have beautiful scenery and it definitely is easy living here, but let me tell you something: this town is sooo anti-business and anti-cange, not to mention very racist. People here do not know how to deal with people of different ethnicities. No matter how liberal people say they are here, it's all BS, there isnothing wrong with the hippies here but the aura of negativity in Eugene just sucks, and it will always be that way.
