Random Observations on San Francisco

I’ve just finished moving into my apartment for the summer in San Francisco where I’m working as an SDE intern for Workday.

Here are a few things I’ve noticed about SF so far:

  • The homeless problem was not exaggerated. It really is bad.
  • Uber is amazing. New York needs to step aside and let capitalism do it’s job.
  • Free same-day and 1-day delivery from Amazon Prime is amazing too.
  • It’s not as warm as I thought. I failed to bring my other pairs of jeans and sweatpants, so I’ll have to
  • Target, Trader Joe’s, Costco, gyms, grocery stores–everything is so close!
  • So much good BJJ: I’ll be training at Ralph Gracie’s academy and 10th Planet’s SF satellite.
  • Everyone honks all the time. Why?
  • Vegan heaven. The two top rated restaurants around me are both vegan and there’s a vegetarian grocery store very close by.

Keep in mind that this is also the first time that I’ve lived in a major city since I’ve had personal agency.

I’m going to try and write a lot more often since it’s the summer now, so stay tuned for more!
