And then it was November. I’m not sure where October went. Nor September for that matter.
One week left in my coursework and I am frantically researching and writing my final paper for the course. It isn’t supposed to be long but there is a lot of research in the area and it is harder to write something when there is a lot already written on the topic. I feel like I have to read absolutely everything before writing the paper which has meant at least 3 days of reading and note-taking so far. All of that for a ten page paper seems excessive.
Because I am doing all of that, I haven’t spent nearly as much time planning the upcoming trip to San Francisco as I would like. I’m relying on my sister’s preparation and the guidebook given to me by my friend. A week from now, I’ll be basking in San Francisco-ness and enjoying the many shows there. I have no idea how/what to pack as it looks like it is 10 degrees warmer there than here but I need to be ready for rain and fog. Plus, I need to bring my computer as I’ll have to do some school work from there. At least I can travel and do school all at once.
If you are going to be in San Francisco I have two (and I am REALLY limiting myself here) recommendations for you #1) – Tartine Bakery and Cafe (www.tartinebakery.com), fabulous atmosphere and incredible food! #2) Creativity Explored- wonderful place, they are doing a really neat thing. We walked into the workshop area and the artists were super friendly and excited to talk with us about themselves and their art (www.creativityexplored.org). Both of these are in the Mission district. Enjoy! Hope you have an amazing time!
