Yesterday, I walked myself down to Fisherman's Wharf, where I have actually NEVER been, and sat in the sun for a bit looking out at the ocean. It was sooo hot, yet so windy and terribly crowded, so I didn't stay for long.
So overall, my days here have been great! This week is definite find-a-job-or-else-I'm-screwed week since my friends are busy with school and work. Time to go read my newly acquired working girl bible...

Now, Day 3, I'm heading out on another adventure with Mack, although I'm not sure where or who we are going to see...more stories tomorrow...I hope.

Let's recap on Day 1's night adventures. After I came back from Berkeley, J and I decided to explore my area (in the dark and fog, mind you). We thought about getting drinks at the fancy smancy hotels up the street, but the bars were full of old business men and women. So we started walking, and came upon a tiny little market (which actually made me very happy because it means I don't have to travel far distances to buy milk). Anywho, back to the adventure. We ended up making friends with the guy who worked there, Jose, and he told us of a bar called The Cellar. It was dead when we got there. BUT the bartender made up for that. He was gorgeous! And Swedish LOL so obviously I felt right at home!
For night 1, it was a gooood night :)
For Day 2, I've decided to drag my friend to North Beach to a) explore the area and b) find the only Trader Joe's "close" enough to me. J hates me already and we're still in our pjs deciding how to get there...haha ohhh well.

Even though yesterday was technically my first day here, I spent the whole day unpacking and cleaning the apartment, so I'm just going to think of today as Day 1. And for Day 1, I've actually accomplished a few things! I successfully located a Staples, bought a wireless router for my computer, then explored a bit (with the help of my friend on the phone and Google maps) and found a Safeway. So not only do I have Internet, but I have groceries. OHHH and I applied for a job, and have drafted another cover letter. Not bad for Day 1, if I do say so myself!
Now, as I glance out across the bay, I see the fog beginning to roll in. Which is my queue to get myself down to BART and head to Berkeley for a delish Indian dinner with my friends!
Bye for now...
