Quiz: Should You Really Be Living in Philadelphia? Or, Like, Conshohocken?

Buzz Feed has a quiz — with two Beyonce-related questions, interestingly — that reveals which city you truly belong in. Some possible answers: Paris, Barcelona, Cape Town, London, Rio…all of them sound fabulous, but Paris and Barcelona are two of my favorite places in the world. I’ve considered moving to both (and then considered my bank account).

I took the quiz, and what did I get? Portland. Portland! I mean, I do live in Cedar Park, which is pretty much a mini Portland, but does shopping at Mariposa Co-op condemn me to comfortable shoes and farm stand yogurt? Sigh.


Take the quiz and see for yourself. (H/t to Joey Sweeney on Facebook.)

    I got Barcelona haha

    I got Portland too! It must be a Philly thing though — Philadelphians LOVE buying local, drinking tons of coffee, eating excellent food (we’re so spoiled on this one),anything organic, art, little street fairs, and living a generally alternative lifestyle. I can see how someone who loves Philadelphia would fit with Portland…but I think Philly is way better!!!!!

      I agree!

      I always tell my friends from out west that Philly is the Portland of the east. Sometimes it feels like a tenuous comparison… but your points are all good. I’d add that there’s a strong “DIY” culture in both cities.

    Lol – Portland here too! I’ve lived in NY so thought about that, and I would love to live in Paris, if I could get away with not speaking French.
