6 Months Later

Well, I have severely neglected writing posts so far the entire year of 2012. So much has been going on! I've very comfortably (and quickly to my surprise) settled into living in San Francisco and couldn't be happier with my new found home.

Six month re-cap in pictures:

Got a job at the Goog. Surreal. I'm working at the HQ in Mountain View, about an hour commute from the city, as a Program Manager in AdWords. I work with a bunch of über-smart Engineers, Product Managers and User Experience Designers (UXD). Hoping soon to get some experience working on the research side of UX. 

Family game nights with my roommates. That's Linden and Tyler above (missing Patrick and Andy). We have a house in the Inner Richmond that happily and comfortably fits all 5 (!!) of us. 

Mom, Dad and Han came to visit me in January. They rented a really sweet apartment in Dolores Heights through VRBO

Took a delicious champagne and cheese pairing class at The Cheese School of San Francisco with Garth

During SF Sketchfest, got to see a live table reading of Wet Hot American Summer with the majority of the cast. A huge deal in my book. 

Though I've been seriously lagging as of late, I joined the SF Center for the Book to finish my basic letterpress certification.

Some final products. 

Also taken a few classes at Workshop, like screen printing and mozzarella cheese making. Another cool extracurricular resource? Check out Skillshare. Classes in every city with just about anything you could want to learn.

Bought myself a bike. Before I got it, I could probably count the number of times I'd ridden a bike on one hand. Now it's two hands. Ha, maybe 3. I still have yet to feel really comfortable and confident, but I'm getting there. I practice with rides from my house, through the park and out to the beach. Stewart has been a very patient and encouraging bicycle partner. 

Gal pals. Truly couldn't have landed a better posse!

Visits to redwood forests.

An obnoxiously picturesque picnic. Still can't get over views of the bridge. 

Lynn came to visit! 

We visited the very cool/very eerie Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the de Young.

And bounced till we dropped at House of Air

Ran in a mud run up in Sonoma with Hartley and Emy. It was NO JOKE. 

Another visit from Dad and Sam's family.

Witnessed the wedding of very dear friends, Emmy and Ryan in Knoxville, TN...

...and a month later, that of Brittany and Ben's in Hilton Head, SC. 

A third trip to the East Coast was capped off with a night with Han and singing, dancing Newsies. If you are a fan of the movie and love the ol' Brooooaaadway, What's not to love?!?

Rounds of bowling at the tres cool, Mission Bowling Club. Try their's too good. 

Stewart and I meet up for tennis after work every so often. The court is ridiculous -- it's high atop Russian Hill with views of the bay and the northern part of the city. 

Dolores Park offers free movie viewings all summer long. A couple weeks ago, we went to the sing-a-long of Mama Mia. 

Life is good here.

  9. Action Fuel Pro Review has been nearing all the time of late thus obviously, being the test sort, I chose to really give it a shot. One thing I saw is that they assert that with Action Fuel Pro Review will give you comes about notwithstanding the amount you workout. Something I am not enthusiastic about accepting but rather in the event that its actual it could truly be the supplement for me. All things considered, we should examine how it lives up to expectations and how it can offer you those amazing results.

  10. Action Fuel Pro is a splendid recipe that serves to improve the strong and sexual force, in the men body, who have crossed their age past 30. Its composed in such way that it general conveys key supplements to your body, which diminish down the recuperation time in muscle advancement. A percentage of the compelling fixings help up to support the vitality level for more workout sessions alongside higher sexual commute and remain. The outcomes with the wellbeing change could be seen with 2-3 weeks of beginning the course calendar of this recipe.

  12. ego on the subject of the organization; Cogniflex approximately the added hand, a large signature in front an otherwise little handwriting symbolizes an overrating of the writers' ego approaching the group. These observations roughly divergences of size apply equally to titivation/ simplification, oppressive/fresh pressure, pastiness/brusqueness, underlining/on top of lining etc.

    Lưu Phong lúc này cảm thấy nổi giận bất quá hắn không dám nói ra. Tần Thủy Dao là một con người nguyên tắc, muốn thay đổi ý nghĩ của nàng quả thật là vạn nan.

    “Quên đi, coi như ta chưa từng nói gì cả” Ngẫm lại vẫn còn thanh nhuyễn kiếm quấn quanh người, sau khi xuống núi ta sẽ cướp kẻ giàu chia cho kẻ nghèo vậy. Dù sao đây cũng là lần đầu vi hành.

    “Nếu ngươi đã thông suốt thì chúng ta đi.” Tần Thủy Dao đối với thái độ vừa rồi của Lưu Phong quả thật rất thất vọng.
    “Chờ một chút.” Mới đi được vài bước, Lưu Phong lập tức quay lại nói:

    - Tam vị sư tôn, Phong nhi còn một việc muốn đề nghị.
    Nghê Thường lập tức mỉm cười nói:

    - Phong nhi, ngươi nói đi.

    “Tam vị sư tôn, Phi nhi mấy ngày nay không thấy đâu cả, đồ nhi đi, một khi nó trở về thì hy vọng ba người có thể giúp đồ nhi chiếu cố cho tiểu tử đó.” Nói thật lòng thì mấy năm qua nuôi dưỡng Phi nhi, Lưu Phong quả thật đã rất thương yêu nó. Mấy ngày nay không thấy nó đâu, không biết bây giờ nó như thế nào nữa.

    Tần Thủy Dao gật đầu :

    - Phong nhi yên tâm, chuyện này cho dù ngươi không nói thì chúng ta cũng biết.

    Phi nhi chính là Thanh Loan thần điểu đương nhiên Tần Thủy Dao cũng rất xem trọng nó.

    Thủy Mị Nhi thấy vậy, cười nói:

    - Tiểu quỷ đầu, lúc này không còn gì nữa sao không mau đi đi.

    “Đi thôi.” Tần Thủy Dao lãnh đạm nói.

    Ai ngờ vừa mới đi vài bước, Lưu Phong lập tức dừng lại, kêu lên:

    - Tam vị sư tôn, chờ một chút, đồ nhi vẫn còn một chuyện muốn nói.

    Tần Thủy Dao khẽ nhíu mày, sắc mặt có chút nổi giận:

    - Phong nhi, ngươi cứ lần lữa hết lần này đến lần khác. Tóm lại có bao nhiêu chuyện muốn hỏi cứ nói hết ra một lần cho xong.
