Happiness: sitting on a 16 dollar air-bed in our Berkeley apartment. After staying in hostels for almost two weeks, I was beginning to go mad. Literally despairing. Everyone reassured me that staying in hostels is right of J1 passage before you secure permanent accommodation- but it's still not nice. After checking craigslist constantly, we found a pretty sweet deal! I don't know how we've managed it but my little J1 fam found ourselves a pretty plush apartment bang smack in the gourmet ghetto in Berkeley. Luvin lyyyf
(Me, deliriously happy in our San Fran homee)
There's so many nice restaurants and enormmmmous thrift shops, I may have just died and gone to a harriet customised heaven. If anyone is heading out to San Fran this summer and doesn't have accom sorted, drop me a mail- there's loads of apartment rentals popping up mid June around here and having something sorted before coming out is so much less stressful. I wouldn't wish the dread of impending homelessness on anyone.
My friend and I went to visit Stanford the other day- it was an incredible campus. On our way back we walked into a restaurant, but it hadn't opened officially and they were like- 'can we give you some free food? We need to test our operations system!' Winning! It was yum. Pics below.
^^^^ Even train stations here look pretty. I wore that dress nearly every day for the first week, kind of gross but it was just so easy to throw on!
Jobs jobs jobs- I've had four interviews thus far for retail. Who knows if they'll be fruitful. Would anyone in the Bay area like to hire me? I'm just lovely, you should contact me ;D
On that slightly conceited note, good morning Ireland, and good night San Fran :3 XXX
