I found so much more in SF than I could have ever dreamed. People there are supportive, well rounded, kind, intelligent, passionate, critical, and playful.
Since I moved there at Christmas I've been the chef of a pop-up restaurant, had profound conversations about the role of government, analyzed world health care policies, went to a water balloon fight, a pillow fight, amazing parties, races, dressed as a salmon at a sushi restaurant, and lots more!
I have to admit I watch lots of TV. I like mostly mindless stuff if I'm working on something else, but if I want to think about what I'm watching I like Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Arrested Development.
It doesn't have to be a romantic thing either. I just moved here and I don't know anyone yet.
