I found this diagram on SF Foodie. The blog links to an article on research findings related to the length of time before bacteria accumulates on apple pieces and Skittles. (Thirty seconds is safe!) Also, read about the Ultimate Foodie Earthquake Kit.



Bicycle!

I bought a bicycle for commuting to and from work and work. It has ten speeds and was only used a few times. I now save four dollars in bus fares every work day (and many other days). The bike cost me two hundred dollars divided by two…I actually own two identical ones. I bought them from a woman living in Half Moon Bay, California. They have a lot of sentimental value for her. She bought this matching pair of bikes with a partner. (I think that is pretty romantic.) They have since split, but she didn’t want her bikes to part ways too. I agreed to buy them both and will be selling or giving one to my friend Ed and trying to figure out whether I should bring the other one back to the East Coast or if I should leave it here in case I come back.

I know that it is a good idea to be thinking about where I will be living after graduation, but honestly the only reason why I am doing so is because I have a bicycle that I don’t want to part with.

SFMOMA was free all weekend as part of their 75th anniversary. I walked four miles to and four miles back from the museum. Walking to and from the museum on a free day, I saved a total of thirteen dollars! I went to Trader Joe’s afterward and bought food to celebrate.



San Francisco, California

I have not posted in over a month and a half. (BAD BLOGGER, BAD.) This is probably because I haven’t done anything too interesting besides move to San Francisco, California. oh…that is interesting? Okay.

After a very stressful departure from Pomfret, Connecticut I arrived at San Francisco International Airport at 9:35pm on the very last day of 2009. My friends, Charlie and Kjax picked me up at the airport and drove me to their new home in Mountain View, California.

The next day we hung out on Valencia Street in San Francisco and looked in a few shops, many of which were closed because of the holiday. This month, I am living in my friend’s apartment while he is away. It is on the Panhandle, and I have now walked to most of the neighborhoods in the center of the city. It is in a good location for roaming on foot. Yes, a motorcycle lives under my bedroom, (I am being reminded of that right now) but it is a great apartment.

Citrus grows here. I knew that, but it was still strange to see lemons and oranges at the farmers market. I’ve been to the farmers’ markets in Noe Valley, on Divisadero Street and outside of the Ferry Building. I will visit more in the future, no doubt. I bought mandarin oranges at both the farmers’ markets in Noe Valley and outside of the Ferry Building. Both of the batches were tasty and organic, but the ones from Noe Valley were quite a bit tastier (and worth the extra fifty cents a pound).

I am here for Bennington’s Field Work Term. It is my last Field Work Term ever. I am interning at a gallery and at a film production company. I’ve only gone to the gallery so far, and I liked being there. It is in a not-so-nice neighborhood, but it seems safe enough. I was given good projects to work on and my intern tasks don’t seem to be too different from the tasks of those who work in the gallery. (That is good!) The gallery represents artists whose work I truly enjoy looking at and thinking about.

I will be going to Oakland today. I just finished reading Farm City by Novella Carpenter, so in a way this is a pilgrimage. Farm City is about making use of the waste produced by cities and using it to feed neighbors food and make neighborhoods better places to live. The book is heavy on meat, but there is far too much information and good writing for a vegetarian to put it down. Currently, I am reading Timbuktu by Paul Auster, which I will now getbaktu.
