Monday Revisited

Today was Labor Day holiday. I met up with Gina again and we took a drive a few miles south outside of San Francisco. This is what we did:

  • We went to the Filoli Gardens and discovered it was closed. :(
  • We drove down to Palo Alto for a bite to eat at the Coup Cafe. I had the assorted tartine and Gina had the Greek salad...

  • We strolled the downtown area...

  • We browsed the shops at Stanford Shopping Center and I bought cheap sunglasses.
  • We headed back and stopped for yogurt in Menlo Park.s
  • We went to Ulta at Tanforan Mall in San Bruno.
  • We ended the day at the Elephant Bar where we had tall fruity drinks and appetizer
    and watched the planes fly into SFO...

Here We Go Again...

I hate this place. Craig's 6 week visit has come to an end and this is where say goodbye. No matter how many times we've replayed this scene, I can never get used to it. I tell myself it's no big deal but in reality I'm tearing up inside. Such as the story of long distance relationships.

The next time we see each other will be in 8 months. He has just started his computer course and will not be able to see me in 8 months. 8 months is the longest we've spent apart. It sucks.

On the bright side, I will be spending a lot of time in the city. I am shacking up at my aunt's house this semester. This will be really convenient for me as I don't have to commute back and forth everyday to school. This saves me a lot of time, money, and sanity. It also beats being stuck in the middle of boring surburbia where you need a car to get everywhere.

It's nice to know that I can just step outside the street and always have something to do and somewhere to go within walking distance! I miss living in the city.
