Let me tell you about one of the most daring decisions I’ve made so far: I moved to San Francisco!
While it’s just a few months, I am looking forward to three things—and documenting most of them:
1.) Learning how to live in a big city. Confession, I’ve never lived alone in a big city. Living in the 5 points neighborhood of Athens was as close as I’ve come, mainly because I could walk to coffee and an organic grocer. But my fair Athens only stacks at a humble population of 115k while oh, just about 3 million people call San Francisco home. I make it 3,000,001. Uh, how do I grocery shop? And what’s this about public transportation?
2.) Experiencing west coast AND bay area culture (a double whammy!). Why, when I was in L.A. I was just thinking that there were too many people in California. And now I get to live around the most artsy and liberal of them all! Boy I must have won a contest overnight or something. I have a few Southern friends who would not trade places with me, even for a $500 gift card to Denny’s. I would consider living in a row house the icing on the cake. No, this is not full house. But I did have to win the craigslist lottery (yes, I met my roommates on craigslist… more later) to do so.
3.) Continuing to play a small part on an excellent and passionate team (like these happy gals) on projects that I am proud of. And from the home office for the first time, too!
So there you have it. I am nervous. I am excited. I can’t wait to blog about it all either.
Stick it out with me?
