I can't believe it's only been three weeks since I started this journey. Feels like a lot longer if I'm being honest. I feel like I'm still in a mental transition period. To the point where at the end of the day I'll think to myself, "Oh man, I gotta go to work tomorrow." Only to remind myself seconds later that I work for myself now, and that I'm doing what I love. But that stress of going in to the office has been so ingrained in me. I wonder if anyone else has felt this before? Surely I'm not the only one.
This past week brought about a different change of pace for me. Monday and Tuesday were dedicated to wrapping up client work and Wednesday and Thursday were spent preparing for my trip out here to San Francisco. Here are some of the things that have happened since I've been in SF:
1. Due to last minute change of plans, I needed a place to stay in SF. I frantically sent out Direct Messages to friends who lived in the area the day before I flew out. Then a friend put me in touch with this couple who lives in the city, and VOILA! a connection was made. I had never met these fine folks, although we run in the same circles, but they were totally open and willing to let me stay with them. Talk about being awesome. Much love to @kvnsmth and @emilysmith for letting me crash on their floor.
2. Putting a face to a name is one of my favorite things to do. I had the great pleasure of meeting and spending time with so many great people the past few days. My instafriend @mo_neal and I got to spend quality time snapping photos as he showed me around this beautiful city on Saturday. On Sunday, my friends @jimjones and @samanthatoy gave me a great tour of the Mission and the outer Sunset area of town. I'm still stoked on the burrito I got at Taqueria Cancún. Also, got to catch up with my good buddies @jbrewer and @samsoffes.
I still have three more days here in San Francisco. I'm looking forward to making some new connections and catching up with old friends. The city is alive with people and I want to make the most of my time here. I'm thankful I have the opportunity to do what I love for a living. This trip is encouraging me to continue to pursue my dreams. Until next time, stay creative.
