I’ve been living in San Francisco for one week now and it’s all been very surreal to me. I don’t think it’s quite soaked in yet that I live in one of the most amazing cities in the United States, but I’m sure it will eventually hit me soon.
For the past seven years, I used to be a resident of Berkeley, California. I moved to Berkeley as a freshman in college back in 2004. I graduated in 2008 but ended up staying an additional three years (while I worked in San Francisco). Berkeley is an amazing city and it will always hold a special place in my heart. It always annoys me when people think of it as a town full of hippies and potheads, because the city is so beyond it’s stereotype these days.
I honestly have no qualms with living in Berkeley and would not be disappointed if I ever had to move back there. I feel that the only reason why I moved out of Berkeley (asides from the logical convenience of being closer to work) is because it’s time to move on.
Favorite Berkeley Character
I won’t lie – I don’t take to a lot of the Berkeley characters, LOL. I don’t know why. But I do like the guy who sits on Sather Gate and holds the “You’re Perfect” sign. Good message, good guy, good day.
