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...

72 City Hours

Second part of a previous night, toasted an attorney friends birthday at Casanova's in the Mission. Hailed a cab and made our way to the 24 hour Naan & Curry for great late night bites.

The holiday showcased a beautiful sunset that we watched from my friends family deck in the Berkeley Hills, the sun set and across the water we could see the city lights twinkling.

Started the weekend with a walk to the ocean and at 70 degrees and sunny it was unbelievable we were nearing the end of November. Perfect weather and afternoon at the Park Chalet.

Getting work done from home and when restless stepping out down the street with a friend to admire the local bartender...she admired I laughed at the age of the guy that struck up a conversation with me.

Friends Mom in town from Seattle, meant ladies who brunch back at the Cafe Majestic. Then braved the downtown crowds to grasp a glimpse of the tree in Union Square before settling in for an Irish coffee or two at the Gold Dust Lounge. She told us stories of living, teaching and falling in love in the sixties. Said we gave her hope, we listened admiringly, she noted she was out with the doctors. Three of us are heading toward that little thing called a dissertation. Her love story and raising eight children left me feeling like what ever I accomplish will never rival the beauty of her motherhood.

After a very good day, got some work done and later enjoyed my friends home cooked dinner and brownies. While it may have been a big movie weekend, no one I know saw one. We did however watch the famous Hipster Olympics...
