Its kinda funny thinking about how fast time flies by. A couple months ago I had an epiphany. This insatiable desire to live in the city, meet new people and experience what its like to be on my own is never going to go away. If I don’t do it now I’ll probably regret it for the rest of my life. I really don’t know whats scarier, the thought of leaving everything I knew behind or regretting never knowing what I could have experienced by doing so. Fast forward to now, here I am living and working in SF with two suitcases for the past 8 months. I absolutely love it here. Who knows what will happen in the future though, all I can do is follow where my soul tells me to go. My brain is already cooking up my next plan.
Top of my list now, eating and experiencing everything SF has to offer. I must say eating my way through the city has also come with the added new hobby of working out throughout the city to balance it. Even though I’m working a lot since cost of living is so much here, it’s nice to go be able to go grab some drinks after and enjoy what all that hard work offers. I like to explore the different neighborhoods and spend a lot of time in the Mission and SoMa. There’s always events going on seemingly every day of the week, definitely no shortage of entertainment. On my days off I try to take little day trips somewhere or plan activities for everyone to do together especially now that the sun is out more.
From moving here I feel like I’ve grown so much as a person. Finally got the ball rolling on the dream of sharing my adventures with everyone! My creative juices are just overflowing, I can’t wait to show what I have in store! Discovered Burmese food and dutch crunch bread, where have they been my whole life. Developed a love/ hate relationship with the public transport system and used Uber so much I might as well work for them. I’ve met some inspiring people that have really shown me that anything is possible. Best of all made and strengthened some awesome friendships.
Of course I miss home. I miss my family, friends and all my favorite food places. Sometimes it can be really hard to not run back to the warmth of the people and weather in sunny Southern California. But what makes home the best is that it’s always there full of nostalgia to welcome you back after your journey.
I’m trying to post once week on Mondays so see you all again soon!
