The Beach

It's crazy, I live so close to the beach. I still can't wrap my brain around it. It's just right there. I see the bay everyday, I drive by it going to work. Then in the city, everything is in my grasp, whatever I'm thinking, high class dining or hole in the wall dive. I've have the option of hanging in the city with mass crowds or going a little bit south to a little more low key experience. All of this is no more than 15 minutes away. I'm liking it here, yeah did I mention the ocean is 10 minutes away. It's pretty cool, I'll just drive there just to look at it.

First Few Days In San Francisco

So I've been in the cit for 3 days now, and it has been, kinda busy slow. I'm going to start with my Tuesday morning early drive. Honestly I had not yet felt how real moving was until about three hours in to the drive. Right about here on my trip..... ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I was cruising down the freeway, listening to the mix Eric made me "Your friends are all in Utah, listen to their music" and it kinda hit me. Wow I'm really moving. Side note, what a great mix Eric put together. It took me down memory lane of a lot of good times. Anyway, I have to say I'm going to miss everyone back home alot. However I still feel this was the right decision for me
These past few days here I've been filling out a lot of paperwork. I've filled out papers for work and watched safety videos. I been to the DMV numerous times trying to get a license. Today I spent 3 hours there. It started out waiting in a line to wait in a line, after about an hour I was able to talk to someone. There I gave them my forms for my CDL license, my papers I was given after I passed my physical etc... It was a pain but after all that they took my picture, and my fingerprints and I was given three tests. One was the regular driving written test, the second was the CDL written test, and the third was an airbrake test. I passed the regular, failed the second by one question, and failed the third by two questions. They let me look at the two I failed and then retake them. This time around I barely passed the CDL without any questions to spare, and failed the Airbrake by one freakn' question. At this time I couldn't take it anymore I was hungry and frustrated so I figured I'd come back on monday and try for my final attempt. Pain in the ass.
