Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

All the radio stations on my preset dials regardless of format, started the day showing some love for the Bay areas own Tupac Amaru Shakur. This reminded me to call mi querida amiga and Tupac fan, to wish her a happy 33rd birthday. I start everyday hopeful, but somedays cooperate better than others...
  • At work a woman walked into the building took a backpack and sauntered out. She was followed, and was caught. The backpack was retrieved her bag was emptied, full of syringes and an envelope of white powder.
  • A client made repeated threats and was suspended from program for 2 days. Another could not be found at the end of the school day.
  • Instead of writing when I got home I poured a glass of red and took a nap. When I first started in the field 10 years ago everyday was emotionally charged and draining- naps were more frequent.
Precisly when I was trying to nap the text and phone blew up. I am a lucky girl; Call 1 & 2" I finally have time to call and you don't answer..." Text 1 "Sorry to bother you but did you talk to..." Text 2 "Imitation is a form of flattery..." Call 3 " Hey, I can take you to the airport on Sunday..." Text 3 "Hope you are having a wonderfull week..."

Balance is key.

In The Depths of Solitude by Tupac
A young heart with an old soul How can there be peace? How can I be in the depths of solitude When there are two inside of me? This duo in me causes the perfect opportunity To learn and live twice as fast As those who accept simplicity...
