Brunch at Tyger's Glen Park san francisco

“you can always come back and visit,” people have told me. ya, but it’s not the same as having a home in the city that you can come home to.

Visiting, whether staying in a hotel or at a friends, seems weird. Time is limited. No more waking up late, goofing around til midday, grabbing food at the diner down the street, shopping at the grocery store, coming home and watching tv. You just don’t do this kind of crap when you visit. Visits are packed with dinners out, and cramming in as many friends and brunches as humanly possible.

i think that’s what ill miss most. The posibility that at any given weekend, you could just do nothing, and bc it was here, it would be amazing. I’m sure I’ll get used to i tthough. One of my favorite things in life, after all, is watching tv in a hotel room.

Just different is all, still coming to grips with it.

    That’s why I’ve come to understand that when I visit Austin, I want to spend at least a whole week with both weekends…so I can just relax and pretend I live there. The cool part will be getting to discover new things that have popped up since you left and get to know her again. Like in Austin, it’s food truck CRAZY. Food Truck Capital of the World is gaining on the Live Music one.

    Like you said though, home is where your heart is. You only found peace once you found NG.

      Last time, I rented out a guest house for 9 days too. So no hotel. Of course it’s also good to stay with friends/fam if possible.

        its kind of like when we were thinking of moving to oakland — even tho oakland is not that far at all, being out of the city, make me appreciate the city again.

        I know this is the right move. It’s just taking me time to get used to all of it. Surprisingly, given all the stuff that is in the works, I feel strangely calm. Not like me at all.

          Change is the only thing that keeps me going sometimes. Nostalgia will creep in, yes, but consider the alternative if nothing ever changed…
          You’ll love the seasons.
