Last night at 11pm, I signed a lease on a new apartment. In San Francisco. Today, I booked a one way flight on November 1st. To San Francisco.
Holy shit, I’m moving to San Francisco.
And not only that, but I’m moving to a picturesque neighborhood an a perfect spot (see the view above—taken yesterday), with a phenomenal new roommate (and her pup!). And somehow, miraculously… I managed to sort this all out less than 24 hours after setting foot on the ground in SF.
So yes, I’ll officially be moving to an amazing little two bedroom apartment atop Potrero Hill on November 1st. I’m already in love with the neighborhood (coffee! restaurants! bars! beautiful views!) and I can’t wait to really get settled in and start exploring.
I owe it all to my amazing friends. Billy for the connection to my awesome new roomie; all my Uber peeps for their support, introductions, and tips as I start getting to know SF; and of course to my DC friends for their support (albeit maybe reluctant ;) ) as I make this big, big move. It’s big changes like this that make you really understand and appreciate the impact your friends and colleagues can have, and it’s hard to imagine making this move without such awesome people in my life to help me out. So to all of you guys—thank you.
The next few weeks will be wild: I’ll be here in San Francisco for a few more days, New York next week (moving my kitty to live with Paul), Miami the week after, and before I know it, I’ll be back on a plane—one-way—to get settled into my new city. For whatever interesting stories I get along the way, I’ll keep you posted.
