Ray-Ban Tortoise Wayfarers | Scarf from a market in Paris | Grandma's Vintage Necklace
My transition into San Francisco student life has been surprisingly smooth. It was with great trepidation that I made the decision to move away from my comfortable little Palm Springs life, away from my boyfriend, and away from my family. I've longed for an adventure like this since I was a child - the idea of being in an unknown area on my own has always been a rêverie, and this week it has become my reality. My car died weeks before the move, so I've had the added challenge of exploring the public transport system (which, by the way, has been super easy to figure out - though I haven't yet ventured farther than campus). I see my classes in a new light. I'm no longer the party-seeking eighteen year old who didn't put much thought into my studies. I realize, now, that my profs are experienced professionals offering wisdom that will guide my future, and I'm giddy to soak it all up. As you can see in the previous post, the area I'm in is absolutely fantastic, and I feel incredibly lucky to seize this opportunity. To all who dream about the chance of adventuring on your own, I say do it. Jump the mental "I can't" hurdle and go while you can. More later - I've got papers to write!
