Life in San Francisco

I suppose my journal is in need of an update, since I haven't written since I moved to San Francisco. Life here is very different while retaining many similarities and people I knew in my Seattle life. I'm lucky enough to have many of those who were on a first name basis with Livejournal down here in SF with me, including evan, meena, brad, Ario and sometimes even lisa and iamdonte. I owe Livejournal a lot as a hub that brought me together with a bounty of friends I am still close with today. Livejournal marks a time in my life that was fun, free, and revolutionary in the budding online social movement.

I reminisce a lot about those days, when I didn't know where I was going or who I'd become. Interested in everything and pulled in so many different directions, somehow I ended up here in San Francisco and retained the richness of these relationships. It's nice to have a little piece of home I am always connected to.

Life in San Francisco is still new and opening up in different ways for me. I meet new people every week and have the opportunity to explore so many of my interests in a city that seems to offer everything. I'm much more active than I was in Seattle and less morose and apathetic. I'm embracing the freedome of my youth by creating my own life in a fresh environment unhindered by the weight of my past.

Every day I seek out a new adventure and try to make the most of being a California resident, but Seattle sticks with me. I can't imagine raising a family anywhere else, or being away from my grandma and aunts much more than a few years... but I have an amazing job here, great healthcare, a bounty of fresh organic food and so many driven and artistic people around me at any given second... it is hard to decide how long to stay, and when might be the right time to return. But then I have thoughts of living in Austin, and in New York, and in Canada and hopefully ending up in Spain... the wanderlust is powerful in me, maybe that's why I can't really relax wherever I am, but I'm glad I don't feel tied down.

I remind myself that I'm not always going to have the ability to just get up and move my life somewhere else, once I get into another long term relationship, or start building a family, I will have to commit to a home and plant some roots. So, I'm taking advantage of my freedom now and making sure i make the most of my youth.

28 is the new 18, y'all. SF FTW.


So I made this, for Jeremy's Bar Mitzvah Party (he's 30;)
it's not a big deal.

It's just a penis with a frowny-faced foreskin
that you can remove to reveal a happy faced-circumcision.

Needless to say, it was a hit
and people were wearing the foreskin around like a hat all night.

Oh yeah and his name is Circumseymour, and he's from Brisconsin.
I mean Bristanbul, er I mean Brisissippi, ok originally from Brisrael.
Like I said, totally not a big deal.

Karaoke Classics

I went to karaoke with Elisa and Nate
and we had quite a rollicking time if I do say so myself.

This is a video of Elisa intimidating her french fries. I highly recommend it.

Here's a video from when Asa took me to my cervical slicing.
I am completely drugged up on Xanax in order to prepare myself for the massacre.
Be advised, it is totally... a big deal.
