I wanted to share a few pictures from this weekend as I not only found my camera charger at home (after ordering it on the internet three weeks ago and it still not being here), but I also got a new phone while I was at it. My old one had been teetering on the edge of the abyss for a while lately and it was time to change.
This weekend was wonderful. As previously mentioned, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday since the only major event is eating. I managed not to overeat, but hit up some of my favorite San Francisco things along the way. Burritos, the Ferry Plaza Market, and my dad’s cooking (it’s a San Francisco staple, what do you mean you’ve never heard of it?).
Other highlights included a (very) mini What Moves You reunion on the beach, a new hat, and finishing the scarf I was working on for my sister (she elected to receive it now instead of as a Christmas gift leaving me not quite sure what to do for her Christmas gift). I also sang until my sister hit me and did eurythmy in One Embargadero. Because when the 4th movement of Beethoven’s 5th comes on I can’t seem to help myself.
As I take stock of all my blessings I am becoming more and more aware of how far I have to go. Not only for the rest of the school year, and the rest of my academic career, but beyond that as well. I’m in it for the long haul and if I’m going to make it in the big bad city then I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me. I’m excited to see the road ahead and looking forward to future holidays spent in San Francisco and around the world.
Side note: These pictures were taken with my new phone on my walk home from the bus stop. I live on a massive hill and pretty much any way you slice it I get to walk uphill to home. No complaining here, it’s gorgeous.
