A friend of mine pointed out a little piece of New England on Highway 1 in California. It is the James Johnson House. The website has information on the house’s history and floor plans.



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.
