The City

I know it's not accurate, but I feel like everything in my life is going to be better once I move to San Francisco.

I won't have to go to a job that I at best tolerate and at worst feel is killing a piece of my soul everyday. I won't feel the need to dress to fit in anymore; I can where whatever the fuck I want. I can dye my hair whatever colors to whatever degree instead of worrying that it will be "too much". I'll live closer to the people I already do know, and meet new people at school, so I won't be such an isolated hermit. I will spend most/every day learning and expanding my mind instead of mindlessly browsing the internet trying to avoid even more mindless actual work. I'll spend my free time actually DOING things, because i'll need to if I want my PhD applications to be worthwhile. I'll be able to go to concerts/bars/out dancing without having to worry about the hour or so extra it will take to get home, it'll just be a cab/bus ride back. We're planning on moving to the Sunset, either near Golden Gate Park or Lake Merced so I'll have nature near by instead of the stupid astroturf park by my house now. Jeremy will (hopefully) find a job he hates a lot less and will be a lot happier. Being in a big city will make it a bit easier to nurture my growing desire to go at least partially vegan. I won't have to drive almost ever, and while I'm not looking forward to the potentially sketchy nature of public transit, I really hate driving, so it's a worthwhile trade off.

I know there are a lot of things that are less than awesome about living in San Francisco, as there are in any city and especially any big city. I also know that my mental health issues aren't going to clear up over night just because I move. But so many of the things that I hate about my life right now will change, and waiting the four months between now and when I can finally move forward in my life is going to be very, very difficult.
