Another new year is upon us, it seems. Can you feel my enthusiasm? I plan to celebrate by never leaving the house and going to bed at 11:30. So, basically like any other day. God, I hate the holidays.
This time of year is all about self-reflection, which is where I tend to get into trouble, as I probably spend way too much time self-reflecting as it is. But in the interest of learning from past mistakes, I thought it would be useful to reflect upon things that happened in 2010 that I do not wish to repeat in 2011. Which, as it turns out, is most of them. But I particularly do not wish to repeat:
definitely not this
oh god, and this
and I could definitely do with less of this
Well that was a fun walk down memory lane, wasn't it?
In the interest of not being a total downer (too late!), let's end things on a more positive note, shall we? And so, here are the Things I am Looking Forward to in 2011:
finishing school (again)
getting a job
I leave in one week, and will be meeting my fabulous travel-partner-in-crime, Jamie, for one extra-long weekend of west coast fun. I have already scoured the archives of my favorite San Francisco-based (and formerly San Francisco-based) bloggers, taking careful note of their suggestions. But now I pass it to you guys--have you ever lived in or visited San Francisco? Is there anything I absolutely must do or see (or eat) while I'm there? Anything I should avoid? My only goals so far are to 1) eat great food, 2) walk a lot and see some stuff, and 3) maybe taste some wine. Anything beyond that would just be icing on the cake.
Cheers, all. Happy etc.
