Ferry Building office (and mild discontent)

Yikes, I meant to update this blog more often with exciting adventures, but I have not been feeling it lately . This week I began to realize that I had much less time than I originally anticipated to do all the bike riding, extra-curricular learning, and projects that I planned for the summer, and it started to bum me out. I know it is only mid-June but I feel like I should have done more by now…  It turns out it just felt like I had lots of time because I had been constantly  busy with school, and work before. Really, I only have a couple days off work a week, and it turns out it takes more time when you’re on your own to make food, keep the cat alive, and maintain the apartment. And I’m going to be working full time again for the next couple of weeks to cover for someone.  Anyway I think I am over resenting the absence of new blog posts as evidence of my lack of accomplishments and I am ready to post again. I’m going to try to fit in amazing adventures when I can, but I shouldn’t be pressuring myself to do more. Vacation should be fun!

So here’s what I got:

I filled in for someone last week and worked at a law firm on the second floor of the Ferry Building overlooking the marketplace. [See the last post for an external picture of the Ferry Building] It’s a really neat place so I thought I’d post some pictures. You really have to steel yourself against the temptation of delicious smells wafting in from the shops and restaurants below if you want to get any work done. When I was there the smells would alternate between cinnamon bread, and bacon. And it’s really nice to work in an office with skylights.

Looking down at the market from the bridge connecting either side of the office.

Spying on cupcakes.

View of the Bay Bridge outside the bay side of the building.


And here is a random neat photo from my apartment window of the fog obscuring Sutro tower on the hill behind UCSF.

I intend to do a post on the Cactus and Succulent Fair once I wrestle with the dozens of photos I took of awesome plants. Also maybe a birthday post. Stay tuned.

    Thanks for the behind-the-scenes look at the Ferry Building. I hope the people working there never tire of the views! And that they don’t get fat.
    Please post what you can when you can- I’m enjoying!

  2. Thanks for the reply Kathleen. I’m glad you are enjoying my blog! Yeah, the Ferry Building seems like a pretty great place to work. There is even a Farmer’s Market two or three days a week!
