Today I went to a movie in a fancy mall downtown, and this gentleman was sleeping right outside of the fanciest of fancy department stores. It’s just a great juxtaposition of life happening here in the big city.
Today marks a milestone in my life that will seem insignificant very soon. Today, I took the written test that will soon lead to having a propper California Drivers License. But there’s more. Not only did I take the standard class “C” vehicular test required, I also took the “M” class motorcycle test!!! I took it for the heck of it, and failed. When I saw that I failed, I could have walked away and said, “well I’ll just take the regular one.” But no. Instead I picked up a study book for the motorcycle test, found a seat at a cafÃ© near by, and read it cover to cover. Then I waltzed back into the DMV, told the proctor I was ready, and took the test again. This time I passed with flying colors.
Now, I have to do the scary part and actually take the driving test. I am still a littleÂ frightenedÂ by driving a scooter/motorcycle, but I think that it is a fear that can be conquered. I have no intention of purchasing a motorcycle, but since Nik and I’s only vehicle is a scooter, I figure I might as well learn to drive it.
Today marks another milestone that will never seemÂ insignificant. Today I am officially looking for new opportunities to propel my career and life in new directions. I do not know what the new opportunities will be, but I know they are out there. I have had so many day-dreams, and now I am going to try to make them happen!!!
In the mean-time, here are my snapshots from the past month or so…
Everything has been pretty normal in the 8+ hours of work five days a week kind of way. That means I don’t have too much to share other than a few instagrammed photos that were taken of the few fantastic and mostly every day moments of Â life. These twenty-four photos span three months here in San Francisco, and they capture what I love about this town, and city life in general. On any given day, there are literally hundreds of beautiful, quirky and amazing things to see, eat and experience. You also have to realize that I am a little bit of a recluse. I don’t seek these things out as much as I think I should, but I go at my own speed and try to do at least one thing a week that I couldn’t do anywhere else. So far so good!!
