Moving On Up...

My name is Alison, I'm 32, single and I live in the 'Burbs. For years my friends in San Francisco have been urging me to grab the bull by the horns and take the plunge. I've always had an excuse. A month ago after break up number 29(?!?) with the same old Mr. Wrong the excuses ran out. So here I am teetering on the edge of my destiny and I decided to start a blog to keep track of my Big City exploits (but mainly to entertain my Sisters).

A suburbanite girl moves to the Big Bad City. Yeah, like you haven't heard that before right - how cliche? I think I could name off sixteen movies with that premise! So what makes this blog any different? Well me. Unlike Carrie Bradshaw, I'm just a normal girl. I grew up in a normal town, had normal friends, went to a normal college. Which kind of makes me, well...I guess, just like you.

My promise to you dear reader is to give it to you straight and not sugar coat or romanticize City living. If the bus ride home stinks of pigs feet you best believe I will let you know. As I get to know San Francisco, so will you. The good, the bad and the "damn that guy has two shopping carts worth of bum brick-er-brack, how does he make it up all these hills?!!"

Move in date is February 1 - so get ready to get CITYFIED friends. You and I are in for a great new adventure!
