it's been three years since i came up here with a couple friends on labor day weekend. it was my first time visiting san francisco in 10 years (from then on, i started coming every 4 months, then every month or so, hah), and my first time in the east bay. i kind of hated san francisco the first time i came (too cold and windy! lol), and had a completely different impression of berkeley than what it turned out to be. but it was during that trip when i fell in love with norcal, and decided "i want to live up here someday."
i didn't think that someday would be now, but here i am. who knew? so much has changed since then. life is completely different than what i'd thought it would be 3 years from then. it's so weird thinking about it.
but you know what? i wouldn't change it for anything, fog and all.
