Yeah, now it is not a place to have a family. My parents were about to move into a huge house in SF near Sunset when I was born, but they decided not to. I kind of wish they did. Oh well.

I remember reading about this random news about how actress Eva Longoria sold her 5 bedroom estate in the Hollywood Hills for $1.4 mil late last year. Today I'm reading about these new 2 bed, 2 bath, 1200 sqft condos overlooking the GG bridge that sold for $2 mil a pop. Crazy

My family friend sold his Redwood Shores house for 1.5m back in 2009.

Want to know the thing that sucks. He was single and was getting up there in age and the house became a bit too much for him to handle. My dad recently told me that he was going to allow for my brother and I to move in and live there as long as we helped take care of it. Could be living there right now.

About the housing talk, I'm currently hanging with some relatives but I'm not looking forward to finding my own place in a few (hopefully) months time. Looks like I'll have to be looking near Campbell ish to find some half decent rent.

I'm here for a 2 or 3 year contract and then we'll probably move back up to the pacific northwest.

I want to move upwards, but I'm not sure how many design based jobs they'll have up there.

Campbell can get pretty expensive too. Pretty desirable in most areas of Campbell.

I've been there twice for breakfast crepes. Looks like next time I'm in the area I'll have to try that green curry crepe.

So... I now live in your city. Just moved here from Vancouver.


Where do I live? I've been looking at places around SoMa. Kinda like the area by the Metreon and it is close to work. I don't have a car and spent the first couple days here signing up for all the car share companies. I need to sign up for ZipCar and Enterprise still but ZipCar sends your card to your billing address and I still have another address for my billing address and won't be able to update it until next month when I get a permanent place :\

Either way, I also got a Clipper card and started to use MUNI a little. Felt a bit confused and I'm draining my battery on my phone like no other due to needing to seek out maps and routes but things seem to be good.

Any must have apps I should get to help out in SF? Currently staying around Rincon Hills area which is dead as hell during the evenings but I do like the area and the apartments around here are super nice w/ great views of the Bay Bridge. They are just... expensive :P

PS: Posted back in February and asked about neighborhoods. Thanks for the wonderful advice back then!

Transit is the best app for telling when a train/bus is actually coming. If you're going to live in SF proper I'd highly recommend getting a Bart/Muni pass.

As for places to live, I'm a fan of Lower Haight and Potrero Hill

No, You don't have to worry about traffic at those hours. It's going to be a breeze. Even the 101 in SF won't be that bad.

$55? That's kinda steep for a first time event, even if it's for three days.

Edit: I'm not gay, but I may still go if I'm in the mood. I've never been to gay bars in SF, though I've been to some in other states. I've heard they're quite different in demeanor, but I can't personally know.

So found a place in SoMa/South Beach that I am moving into this week. Pretty happy as I got a lot of concessions so the price per month prorated down is pretty good. Will it be like that next year? Nope but good for now and I'm happy. It has amazing views of the Bay Bridge/Downtown and is a few blocks from the Embarcadero.

I'd just like to note here, and not saying this is your intention at all but just as a heads up, this is not a time to go to a gay bar to sight see, or to pick up women. There might be other straight people around but there probably won't be many. It's an environment where LGBT people are celebrating themselves. I'd highly recommend going with some LGBT friends if you can.

It is super fun and super packed, and expect to wait to get into almost any bar in the Castro
