City Girl or Rookie?

I made so many rookie mistakes today, it’s an embarrassement. I share so you’ll be reminded that it’s never a good idea to drive downtown and pay to park in the FiDi when you actually live in SF, even if it’s raining. Especially when the parking attendant tells you, “I work here, but I would never park here!” (Four hours and $28 dollars later…) Additionally, what’s the point of keeping an umbrella in your trunk year-round if you’re going to forget to grab it on the one day you’ll actually need it? And heels are sexy, but really they aren’t. Carry Bradshaw falling in Dior is a reminder as to why. Last but not least, make the effort to note where it is you actually did park your car so that you can avoid wandering around like a dumbass on the wrong side of the parking garage while simultaneously getting yelled at by someone who assumes you are being rude simply for saying, “I just can’t find it!!!” When I finally got home after this long day, I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry so I just did both.

See you on the other side…

As I’m sitting here wondering how to manage the intensity I’m about to endure over these next few weeks it occurs to me that this semester has been pretty frickin’ calm. Usually it’s insane from start to finish and paired with a few meltdowns, a green complexion, breakouts, and heavy bags under the eyes. But this has been a great term! In fact, I’m a little sad for it to end. I’m not saying it has been easy or that I’ve had time for a mani/pedi, but the adventure has been rewarding. So as I prepare to dive in head first, I am confident knowing that I will survive. See you on the other side…
