Well, at least it’s been a busy month… but I probably should post some news for the pals who read this to keep track of me, but who I don’t talk to very often.
Yup. It’s true. After 17 years of living in San Francisco proper, I’m moving to the East Bay. Rockridge actually. And of course the only thing that would get me to take this step which I vowed never to take is that I’m in love and moving in with my girlfriend. Between her life which is 100% in the East Bay and mine which is 50% there (that’s where my office is and it looks like I’ll be there awhile…) it just didn’t make any sense for us to move into the City.
Plus, we found a perfect apartment in a great location. For the first time in years and years, I’ll be able to have a proper dinner party at a dining room table in a dining room. Plus there’s a washer/dryer in the unit, a dishwasher and tons and tons of light. And we’re on the top floor so goodbye to you my annoying, clonky neighbor of Noe Valley.
And for those of you who didn’t even know I was so serious about someone… well, I guess you know that now too. She’s amazing and I’d follow her to the ends of the earth. And for right now at least, that is only on the other side of the Bay.
I’m still in the City for another 3 weeks or so. Packing mostly… but around for drinks if you’re interested. As much as I’d like to think I’ll still get to the City all the time, I going to bet the reality is that once I move over to the other side, I probably will spend more time there. But hey , I will be walking distance to BART…
