Three weeks from today …

… I will be on a plane, going to San Francisco. I’ve wanted to visit SF for a long time b/c I’ve heard that it’s a very cool city. Little did I know, that I’ve actually been there before. I was aware that my family took an extensive trip from Montana and Washington State and drove all the way down to southern California (this was when my parents almost lost me in the Pacific Ocean) to visit family, but I didn’t realize we had stopped in San Francisco. Obviously, I don’t remember much prior to the age of two years, so I think it’s time to go back. I’m excited to see Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf, and of course the Golden Gate Bridge, among other sites, while enjoying some great cuisine. I’m glad to have something to look forward to! The other thing is … I’m going to SF with John, who happens to be my ___friend. It’s still hard for me to say and even think about, but it’s true. That –friend word hangs me up b/c it’s so not normal to use it about myself. Yes, I know I’m a freak. But hey, I’m a freak and I accept it. It makes me unique (once in awhile I can be positive). Yea for a break from Ohio and a fabulous trip to San Francisco!

awww joy... i'm so proud of you for being able to say ___friend!! ;P Anyway, you guys have a blast in SF!! I went there about two years ago, and my fave thing we did was renting bikes around where fisherman's wharf was, and then you bike along the ocean, over the golden gate bridge, and into sausalito (cutest town!!). Then we got on a boat to get us back to fisherman's wharf (or you can bike back). Anyway, I definitely recommend that! Also, if you guys plan on going to alcatraz, i recommend getting tickets ahead of time... it was sold out for the whole time we would be there, and we ended up having to listen to a timeshare presentation just to get tickets! (only way we could get them). Have fun!!!
