A week and a day

August 23rd, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink

I have been in San Francisco a week and a day tonight.  And what a month the last month has been.  Firstly I got two jobs in July.  One was an internship helping a community manager at a code school.  It was unpaid, but an interesting insight into what a community manager does and does not do, and the expectations placed upon them.  the second job I was really starting to enjoy, it was at Mint Salon in midtown.  I was the receptionist and I really enjoyed it, as I liked the people, and, enjoyed the interaction with ‘clients’ as salon customers are called.  It had some room for advancement,  not a lot, but a little and I got free haircuts and discounted services!


But, then I saw a job listing on facebook, from Danny and the job sounded right up my alley, the only problem was it was in San Francisco, so I applied, interviewed and got it!  I then asked Matthew very nicely if I could stay with him and figure out whether the job and I were a good fit and I liked moving so far so suddenly, and boom with two weeks I was on a plane to SF!


The job is  a good fit so far, right now I am an administrative assitant at a start up, and also a personal assistant to the two co founders, and I am enjoying the challenge and dealing with all the problems.  I am still finding my feet and seeing what is expected of me.  But, I am going to Manchester – England, for a convention, and maybe Miami as well later this year.  And I am enjoying bits of SF.  The no car is awesome, public transport FTW!  And I love the tempreture – I should have bought more light jackets with me.  It is an expensive city though, just food is expensive.  But, I went to the local farmers market on the square and got super fresh veggies and fruit.  And I am walking a ton, and sleeping well, after walking roughly 3 miles or so a day on hills.   My goal is to walk more, but I catch the bus to work, as I can’t face walking it in the morning.


My other goal is to leave in time to get coffee in the morning, right now, I just can’t seem to get the timing right.  Oh yeah, I now know about meetings, a lot of meetings, which is new to me.

I treated myself last week and went to The Exploratorium, as the Theo Jansen’s   Strandbeest’s were there which I adore. It was magical seeing them move and up close and reading all the details about them.


On my way back home I saw the most marvelous sight, the full moon just over the bridge:

Sea Slugs That Prove Aliens Already Live On Planet Earth

This is totally what aliens look like.

Why are sea slugs so much prettier than earth slugs?

Where am I?
