Its been 12 weeks since I moved to the Bay area and even longer since I've written anything personal on my blog, but I hope to remedy that soon. It has had its ups and downs, more ups than downs and it has truly brought out those who are truly my friends. It's been tough trying to find housing here, so I've found myself crashed on one of my best friend's sofa and moved into temporary--damn near permanent lodging- to give me time to comb through the undesirable and desirable places to live in Oakland in particular.
So far I have enjoyed being here. I have a job I actually like. I now work with homeless veterans. This job, believe it or not, allows me to be creative since the organization is rebranding itself. I have views of a beautiful lake, that looks like a scene from northern Italy. I work two minutes from a harbor where I watch boats sail everyday. And the weather is the best I have ever experienced.
SO here's a low down of what I've been up to:
I've hung out with this handsome fella:
I've been California Dreaming near the sea:
I've eaten some of the best vegetarian and vegan food ever (I'm working on becoming a pescatarian):
I've visited an 80 year old movie theater and star-gazed thanks to my new obsession Cosmos:
I've been working on my SS 2014--more like Summer 2014-- Collection:
And building my empire (More on that later):
Let's play catch up! What have you guys been up to?
