I love coming back to Socal to visit family and friends and just catch up with everyone. I love sleeping in my old bed because it’s by far the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in.

However,  this weekend was the first time I called Norcal “home”. Whenever people used to ask when I was flying back, I’d say “I’m flying back tomorrow/tonight/etc” but for the first time, I said “I’m flying home tomorrow”

I know it’s just a one word difference but it’s the first time I’ve called Norcal home. It’s kinda nice.

Read this in the December issue of Glamour Magazine:

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies,
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion mode’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

“Phenomenal Woman,” by Maya Angelou

Preach on.

No shame.

“You know, every time we go to lunch, you always have left overs. But I also can’t remember the last time I turned around and didn’t see you munching on something like candy, chips, cereal, or your leftovers. What is with your stomach?” — Co-worker #1

“Your desk always has candy wrappers and empty chip bags all over the place” — Coworker #2

“I think the only time I see you get up from your desk is when you go to the bathroom and go into the kitchen” — Coworker #3

What can I say? The stomach wants what the stomach wants.

There’s this list in 7×7 Magazine of 100 things to eat and drink in SF before you die. Since moving here, I’ve made it my personal goal to try and hit all 100 in at least 3 years. Given that it’s already been five months and I’ve only done 6 on the list, I have a long way to go. I guess it doesn’t count if I’ve gone to the restaurant but didn’t try the specific item.

My goal is to reach at least 20 by the end of this year. I’m gonna do it.

Here’s the list:

Play the game.

Sometimes, even when you don’t like them, you just need play the cards you’re dealt. You might just end up with something better than you thought.
