as i watched the inauguration festivities this morning with the rest of the nation (gave me chills), all this talk about change and new beginnings has me contemplating all the changes going on in my life this week.
in a few days, i'll be here....
okay, that's nothing new. i'm always up in norcal. but unlike all the other times, i will be living there.
over the summer, i decided to switch my major to graphic design. i know this will just add more years to my already-taking-too-long-schooling, but it just felt right. i also took that major change as an opportunity to look into transferring into a school up in the bay area. if not now, then when, right?
if you've followed my blog for a while, you've come to know how much i've fallen in love with the bay area, and especially san francisco, over the 2 years or so. it's so weird, because i really was not a fan of san francisco the first time i visited, which was when i was, like, 12. it was too cold for wimpy, so-cal me ;) but then we took a trip up there for labor day in 2006. i completely fell in love. i fell in love more and more every subsequent visit after that, and it was getting harder to leave (although, there may have been multiple reasons for that, eh?). so to say that i'm EXCITED about this move is an understatement.
i am so excited to live in the city, and to be surrounded by all that san francisco has to offer. san francisco is such a beautiful, charming, eclectic place. i've seen plenty in the city, but i love that there is so much more to explore and so much more to discover. of course, being 20-ish miles away from the boy, instead of 400, is a huge plus ;) we've been making plans for things to do, places to go...it's so fun because we won't run out of time and can fit everything in now!
i'm nervous at the same time, being on my own for the first time, away from the familiar comforts of home. i'm always worrying about how i'm going to make it work, but i guess this is just all part of it.
of course, this means that i will be stuck in GIANTS territory. i guess i'll just have to be a lone dodgers fan in the bay area :) hee.
unfortunately, this also means i won't be at CHA this year. i'll miss walking around and looking at all the fabulous new product, and seeing everyone!
eventful month for me, no?
