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...

The sun has been out since Friday and the city is alive...

Shared my new Warrior basketball facts at a party Friday night. Great small talk and nods of approval from the boyfriends all around. I was in over my head though, when a lawyer boyfriend tried to argue with his girlfriend the values of a show called sports center. I just smiled because I had no idea what he was talking about. Although he did explain to me how teams match up- and it has nothing to do with fashion :)

Wrapped up another wonderful year as a workshop facilitator with a bar-b-q in the shiny sun, from the lawn on top of the mountain we could see the city below and the blue water beyond.

Moving languidly went to a Senegalese restaurant and toasted cinco de mayo with a hibiscus margarita. Made our way to another house party to see the Golden boy get robbed! I actually only saw the last 3 rounds but enough to call my dad and leave him a message about how the split decision- went the wrong way.

Woke up to hike up to the top of Twin Peaks. Dropping by a friends for ice cold lemonade. From the deck you could see across the bay to Berkeley and Oakland.

Went to mass with a friend and we laughed at the sudden burst of Tommy Bahamas in the isles. Heard clearly and nodded in agreement to, "love one another."

Discussed religion, the warriors, and cancer at our neighborhood bar. The night was warm so we took advantage of the beautiful night at dub mission. Ran into familiar and new faces, everyone was buzzing about the sunshine and the warm night.

I came across the little golden flower on my hike and I thought it was beautiful, how it delicately broke through the tough terrain.
