Thinking about my time ending here in the SF bay area is making me really sad.  I've really 100x fold enjoyed my time here.  I really love all the people, the great food, the beautiful weather (for the most part, except for those days days of rain :) the outdoorsiness of being here. 

The great thing about this area is how smart and talented the people are.  They're are so many tech folks, artsy people, creative and driven people, people who are looking for the next big thing (start-ups mostly). It takes a lot of drive to pursue something on your own, which I admire.  You can't be afraid of failure. It makes me think about what can I do, if all these young professionals can push themselves to create something new.. maybe not necessarily new, but innovative of something that is already present, or doing something for the good of people.  I read this story about Toni Ko, the founder of NYX cosmetics, and I thought wow, she was only in her mid-20s when she created this. Another brand I find inspiring is TOMS shoes, I love how for every shoe you buy, they give a shoe to child in Argentina. 

All I can say is, I feel inspired and I like it.  I'm ready for a change in my life.  Ready to jot down those ideas, and figure out what the next stage in my life is..
