42: WASHINGTON by bowlersandtophats 42: WASHINGTON by bowlersandtophats

I forgot about the state-tan project thing entirely until I was reminded again. XD;; Sorry about that. But anyways here's my state Washington. I couldn't do NY because it was already taken. -sob- But nevertheless WA is a pretty cool state too. -3- Okay here is some other facts about WA besides the ones above:

-Eastern Washington is actually the younger brother to Western Washington since people haven't settled in the Eastern part of the state until much later. (Age App: 16-17)

-Eastern Washingtonians have considered to separate from the Western part and form it's own state with Northern parts of Idaho to form the Lincoln state. (Thus East WA's name is Samuel A. Lincoln)

-WA hates the fact that he's sometimes mistaken for Washington D.C. on the East coast. Therefore people call Washington "The state of" and such to not be mistaken for the capitol.

-Seattle is the most cultural city in the state of Washington, you may never know what kind of art you'll see there.

-The six largest reported ancestries in Washington are: German (18.7%), English (12%), Irish (11.4%), Norwegian (6.2%), Mexican, (5.6%) and Filipino (3.7%). So surely WA is part German. lol

-Washington is the most non-religious state other than Colorado which has 31% population of non-religious people.

-Washington is the only state named after a U.S. president (George Washington).

- Nearly one hundred Orca whales, in three family pods, reside in the San Juan Islands during the summer months.

-The Space Needle in Seattle, built for the 1962 World’s Fair, attracts more than a million visitors each year.

-Mount St. Helens is the only volcano in the continental United States to erupt in recent history. The 1980 eruption devastated an area of 250 square miles (400 sq km).

-Washington’s Grand Coulee Dam is one of the largest hydroelectric facilities in the world.

-Washington’s state flag is the only state flag that is green.

-Lake Chelan was once a river, but glaciers blocked the river with dirt and rock, thus creating a lake.

-One of the world’s largest totem poles is in Tacoma. It is 105 feet (32 m) high. (It's only in the North West that Native Americans are known for Totem Poles not Natives in the southern states. Now you know.)

And so I might fix him a bit in the future but eh. xD Just glad to be over with it.

I like your Eastern Washington! I've lived there my whole life and the only change I would change would be to make him more Mexican. :XD: Seriously, there are so many Hispanics and migrant workers in Eastern WA.

In my personal opinion, Western Washington should be a lot less friendly looking; people in Seattle are distant (As are most people in WA). Not only that, but a lot a people in the state suffer from depression (Due mostly to the continuing grey blanket over their heads). Also there are a lot of people here that are fairly quiet and most people keep to themselves in Western WA. I lived in (Western) WA for my entire life and no one has ever been very friendly here (Unless they moved to WA recently). Me and my friends used to joke that if someone was outgoing/nice they weren't from around here (Most of my friends moved to WA from different states or from different countries).

This is just all things I have observed while living here. Not EVERYONE here is like this...
All that aside, likes Starbucks (people from Seattle pride in their Starbucks), twilight-hating (Though Forks likes the visitors because there is nothing out there!), laid back, likes hiking, a bit of an environmentalist, and likes technology and video games is a fair representation of western WA. I also like your art style!
I laughed when I read he had a phobia of girls! XD

I hope I didn't come off as rude...that wasn't my intention...

As a native Seattlite, I completely disagree. Undoubtedly, some of us are like that, but the depression thing is a misnomer and the Seattle Freeze doesn't exist - people only notice the cases where it is there because they stand out in memory. Not to insult you or your experiences or anything, sorry. I've met a LOT of loud people here... They're pretty annoying.

I've only been there a few times. It's mostly fields and the like, but I like it there too. :' ) It's like the fields are a golden yellow ocean or something.
