After two weeks of starting my new job, I finally made it out to SF (San Fransico) last night. I had to work a little later from home, finishing a graphic for work. I hope that does not happen too much at this new job. I was given start-up advice from a mutual friend who works for a motor company that was a start-up 10 years ago. He is also a designer and a hard worker. I am blessed to have connections.
Here I am in a new city, so I have a fresh eye and spirit waiting to discover this location. I am open-minded, however since I had to work from home last night, I was unable to enjoy my Friday night to its full extent. I made plans earlier that day, which was interrupted by work. Since it is my first month here. I do want to prove myself of being a reliable marketing and visual design manger but I need work-life balance. It is only healthy for my mental state.
I am a socialite. I need to get out every so often.
I was able to meet up with two people but I chose the smarter decision and met up with the one I felt safer with. Taking public transportation (BART) for the first time, and arriving in a big cold brand new city, I wanted a gentleman and married friend who I know I am safe around. I followed my instinct and have learned to always follow your gut.
Since I have such a fresh open eye to SF, I want to fall in love with it. So whoever I chose to be with, must be a healthy person. A healthy minded person and a class-act. I am a little bit wary or skeptical of most people. As I should be and have the right to be. I have experienced enough nonsense in Florida to know better.
I do want to make friends and I will join a marathon training group or running group when I sign up for the Napa Valley Marathon after pay day. That is a healthy friendship zone. I also can’t wait to find a good gym.
But back to meeting other people, I did sign up for dating apps. Gosh, oh my. Dating applications are so funny. But I have come to accept that it’s a good connector to meet locals in my area. I met some of my best girl friends through guys. Just guys who are my platonic friends of course. But this is a message for any guy who may come across this blog post, treat me right and show me that SF is a beautiful, hip, cool and sophisticated city. Do not show me something crude. I came out here with a fresh spirit and the world is my oyster. It’s a good chance and opportunity to show me good times! I expect nothing less than the best.
Always the best. Remember chicas, as Mercedes-Benz’ motto says…
“The Best or Nothing.”
