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...

Top Shelf Girls

The week started strong with guest list love and new LA friends. I felt particularly shiny and cleansed following 5 days of Bikram, my adoration has much to do with the warm 105 degree temperature you practice in for 90 minutes...I will simulate warmth anyway I can. Much better than fake baking I think.

New fronts with familiar friends, co-presenting on a topic I really care about. Work aside an official girls night had 7 of us toasting to margaritas- by the pitcher. A walk over to a famous lounge previously owned by our mayor they say...There was dancing, bad pictures on camera phones and guys that approached us but didn't encroach on our girls night, where boyfriends were left behind for the night, the single girls have to follow the code too.

To my surprise I got a call the next day to confirm a dinner date. None of my friends could tell me exactly who I had agreed to go to dinner with. Nonetheless, it was one of those pleasant surprises that I had to admit to him was like a blind date. Alas he is not 'fuzzy,' either my male friend later determined but chivalry counts in my book. Besides, intelligence is sexy.

Back to work and the week was anything but typical...Wednesday had a weird energy about it that left everyone needing a drink. So, after dishing with co-workers at a neighborhood bar a friendly patron gave me a mini cactus they had just purchased, on a dare I drank non-top shelf beverages because they didn't think I would. Played a bad game of billiards, and ate late night Thai with good friends.

On the walk home, noticed the moon was almost full :)
