Yes, It's That Girl!

I'm writing this at the end of my first work day in San Francisco, so excuse the fact there will be no cute pictures, links etc, as I want to get this done and get out the door.

I love it here. I have never been so happy in my life. San Francisco is truly "The City". I feel totally at home here. Every moment is a new adventure. I only hope that the honeymoon lasts for a long time.

This morning I walked to work, well walked and took the Muni (subway). I left my place decked out like a true San Franciscian; overcoat, messenger bag, umbrella, and iPod in my ears. Just as I was passing the St. Francis on Union Square, a familir beat started and Dolly Parton and I sang "9 to 5" as I joined the crowd of locals on the way to the train station. Once there I caught the famous, and beloved N-Judah train, which according to the map on the wall, would lovingly carry me right to my office. About halfway through the ride, the train came up out of the underground, and the sight I was to behold brought a smile to my face. I was presented with a beautiful view of the bay, and the Bay Bridge. As we traveled down the Embarcadero, I couldn't contain my enthusiasm. I asked the girl sharing the seat next to me "do you ever just look at this place and wonder how it is that you can live in such a magical place?", she didn't really respond, but the smallest of smiles met the corners of her mouth. She didn't dare break "the rules" by actaully speaking to someone on the train, but I could tell sometimes she probably wonders the same thing.

My first day of work went very well. My peers are fun and helpful, and I can tell I have already won their respect and friendship. Tomorrow I will hit the ground running and hopefully impress them with my knowledge and drive.

I still don't have internet access at home, so emails and post will be sporadic. I have to go now, my train will be coming soon, and I'm ready for a nice night at home.
