This weekend has been perfect - just what I needed after a long week of soul-searching about my job and settling back in from my trip back East. The weather has been GORGEOUS here in SF, which has greatly helped, as well as seeing all of my amazing friends. I know that I'm on the path to being truly happy the more I stay in SF. Even when things are shitty, I just feel this sense of calm here that I never felt in New York. It's a rare thing for me to feel settled in any way - I thrive on change and drama, but I think the one constant in my life right now is my love of this city and the desire to stay here (well, Bay Area at least) for what I'm hoping is the rest of my life.
Friday night was hotpot, which was fun, albeit a little bit awkward since we went out with some people we don't know very well. It was really nice to walk home - I need to start incorporating more exercise in my daily life and I think walking is going to have to be it. Yesterday, we went to Napa - L&S, JazzGirl and I. SO MUCH FUN. We did the Castello di Amoroso tour and tasting, followed by Robert Mondavi and the Laird Family Estate. I bought three bottles of sweet wine, which makes me very, very happy. We decided to hire a car and driver, so everyone could drink and have fun. It was definitely the right decision, and I had a blast drinking and singing in the car with my favorite SFers. I want to start exploring California more - if I'm going to live here, I'd like to get more familiar with the state and it's so damn beautiful!
Today will be cupcakes and margaritas at our friend's birthday party for her dog, followed by Prometheus! I know I'm not going to get as much done around the house as I wanted, but I think it's worth it to get out there, hang with friends, and be social. I have some major hermit tendencies that I have to overcome and I struggle with finding the balance between 'me time' and 'friend time,' but I need this social interaction right now to keep me sane. Then, later tonight I will work on my resume, since I've heard back about two of the roles I'm interested in. I am really going after this job thing hardcore. It's time for me to learn a new set of skills and grow more in my career. I'm gonna put my game face on, stop being modest, and sell myself and my accomplishments. I'm hoping by mid-July to have a new role, so I need to get cracking!
Happy Sunday, everyone!
