How I Ended Up with Frank Bill.

  Work was cancelled today, so I took a detour to Alexander Book Company which is right across the street from the bus stop. I looked through a shelf of books and decided to see if they had a book I’ve been stalking on Amazon for months, but too cheap to buy. I asked them… Continue reading How I Ended Up with Frank Bill.

Muni Chronicles: Just Open a Few Windows!

San Francisco is a public transportation friendly city. I don’t know how to drive, but even if I did I would still ride the buses, the monorails, the trains, the trolleys, and the cable cars because it is simply so much easier to get around!

Home is Where the Heart is Divided

This week's photo challenge said to post a picture of where our heart is and what local means to us. Well, locality and heart possession belongs to two different places- my hometown Arizona and my current town San Francisco.

Gorilla War

I was only able to grab one thing from my apartment before it’s swallowed up by a starving hole in the ground. Of course as soon as my boyfriend and I are on the brink of everything we talked about during college, the world is crashing and burning. I had dreams we would get married,… Continue reading Gorilla War

Adventures of a Bookworm: The BIG Book Sale.

The annual big book sale has ended! I found so many great gems there. I ended up getting 23 books for only $45 bucks.   When I was younger, I used to go to Barnes and Noble every week my parents got paid and get a new book. Now that I'm older, I rarely go… Continue reading Adventures of a Bookworm: The BIG Book Sale.
