I am writing this from my new apartment in San Francisco! I finally moved-switching both cities and jobs. I'm no longer a Chicagoan, so I've escaped the brutal winters, but I've also escaped the comfort of a city I've known for 6 years. I'm no longer a consultant, so I've escaped the sometimes excessive working hours, but I've also escaped my network, coworkers, and of course the free travel.
And I'm here in San Francisco, living in Upper Haight which has been a study in gorgeous Victorians, wonderful shops and cafes, and avoiding eye contact with the harmless crazies. It's been great, and I can't wait to explore more.
So here's to a new adventure!
