I want to write in more detail about different aspects of my experience later, but for the time being, I will try to describe it in one of my favorite forms: listing*.
My week in San Francisco was:
Helpful (to some degree, I hope)
Things I did while there:
Acted confused and bewildered for the first two days
Started to get my shit together on day three
Fell into the "visitor organizer" role, somehow
*Alicia knew this about me and sent me one of the most awesome books ever, that was written in list form. I need to go find that book now...
