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...

Warriors

Shamelessly on the bandwagon as the Golden State Warriors advance to the next round, or ummm whatever they do in basketball.

All I know is that I joined my friend and her boyfriend at the Kezar Pub and waited for a coveted table. It was standing room only the HD tv's were crystal clear and I was caught up in the excitement before I knew it. The Heffenweizen by the pitcher probably didn't hurt either. Then we found our way up the hill back home chanting, lets go warriors/lets go.

Yesterday was game six and I was meeting my dear LA friend and her boyfriend for drinks. We chose the Marina and I scoped out a spot that still had seats and tv's with the game on. Once the game was over and the Golden Boys advanced to whatever they advanced too, we moved to the Matrix, to catch up over good conversation and martinis. When they are back in town in June we are going to spend some quality time in the Mission.

I have been blessed with amazing friends. They are always exposing me to new things, like my best guy friend from the 9th grade who blogged today about national Star Wars day. May the fourth be with you (get it?) anyway he explains it better than I understand it "May the 4th be With You!" on his Dark Monkey Chronicles.

Also this week a story that should be bigger than basketball, images from the LA Pro-Immigration walk made their way into the Chronicle via the AP. I took my reaction to an LA insider, his perspective and my response are both worth reading "A Minority Report or, I can't believe I am seeing it this way..." as blogged on Pachucoville.

I am finding uber-diversity very lonely, so I often find refuge in a great Chicana blogger http://loteriachicana.net/

In honor of the month of the mami and because my gravatar was down I posted a picture of the most beautiful mami in the world- a warrior in her own right.

Happy Friday...
