What are the pros and cons of portland OR. and Oswego OR?

I'm going to be moving to Oswego most likely after I graduate high school this year. Im from the Bay Area in California, but I've never really fit in with these people. They're snobbish, rude, mean, and especially in my area live in a bubble. Im planning on moving because I heard there are some nice nursing colleges in oregon, and my mom wants to move closer to her boyfriend who lives in portland. I love art communities, my favorite place here in the bay is berkeley. So.. what are the pros and cons? Any advice is helpful :] Is that the kid that was in lords of dogtown? :P Weird answer, but thanks ahahah

Do look at a place before you rent, some of St Johns is a bit scary. 22st avenue is upscale-hippy. Hawthorne... More
