Hitting the Wall - Searching for a Place

Because everyone needs a place to hang their hat...via George Eastman House
I hesitated to do my New Years Resolutions this year because I have a lot of uncertainty right now. One of the big things that I am forced to do this year is find a new place to live. And in a city like San Francisco, this is a crazy endeavor.

I don't want to bore you all with the details, but basically my landlord is selling our apartment and retiring. So we have to go. It's a pretty sucky situation because I love where I live. I'm in the heart of the Mission, which is a very cool place to in San Francisco. I don't know where Damon and I will go. The prices in the city are crazy. If anyone wants to talk about lots of late night panic attacks, I've become an expert...

It makes me question all things. With a higher rent (or possibly a mortgage), do you put your career on hold while you look for a day job? Do you keep pushing on and hope for a miracle to happen? What do you do when you can't plan for a near future?

Hopefully, all this will be settled in the next few months. I must remain positive, and keep those worst case scenerios out of my brain...And my husband and I (and damnit, I pray the cat can come too) will be happily living in a new spot in the city where we love even more than this place now. And I will be back in full force and planning all my crazy new artistic endeavours to share with you all.

 So... if anyone knows of lovely places to rent or buy out there in San Francisco or perhaps a cool creative part time job...PLEASE let me know.

Thank you!

If you ever get into a situation where you can't take your cat somewhere, let me know. We're happy to help. I hope that's a worst case scenario though!

Wow, thanks guys. I'm hoping we can keep Pierre! It is crazy how much this city drives me nuts but I still don't want to live anywhere else...

I LOVE your work and dreamy style! Wishing you much luck in relocating. I hope you could look back in some time and say this was a blessing in disguise.
