about the project: The photolog was started several years ago with other bloggers to capture our days. Are we that different? Are we similar?
about me: I am Jenn. A 24 year old living in San Francisco, working as a designer. I still wake up "late" and sleep "late". Cheez requested that I do this! And I tried my best to capture my day, but unfortunately like last Friday, my photo stops toward the end of the day.

More STALKERISH INFO available at the blog

other photologgers: Cheez Shroom Lele

9:12 am
9:12 am At my parents' house, right out of bed. I am heading back to San Francisco today. My sister flew out yesterday night, so that also means, time for me to leave! As you can see, my room hasn't changed much from previous years (see other photologs). Naturally messy. :) Not sure if I have changed though!



9:27 am
9:27 am Less than 15 minutes later. Dressed and ready to go!



9:33 am
9:43 am The partial landing at the first staircase. Now not with graduation cards and birthday cards (2 years ago), it's filled with xmas cards. The only xmas spirit in our house this year because my dad went on strike. Ok, next year, I will have more spirit!



10:05 am
10:05 am Pictures of my sister and me in the living room. Awww...when we were young!



10:05 am
10:05 am All the bags and things I am taking to San Francisco. How did this all accumulate over xmas?



10:20 am
10:20 am Driving out my freeway in 2006 Honda Civic. I absolutely love the new dashboard. White text on blue, who would have thought?! And no confusing speedometer, but just a number! Yes I love Muse.



10:41 am
10:41 am Magically, slightly more than 20 minutes later I have made it across the San Francisco Bay Bridge (after paying a $3 toll!) Th car in front of me has the license plate 4Beerz. Factoid: In the graduate, Dustin Hoffman was driving on the top deck toward Berkeley, but eastbound traffic is on the bottom deck!!!



10:51 am
10:51 am Hazy morning. Now in the Mission district, driving down Valencia. Now at 14th. Taxis, buses, cars and motorcycles...



11:45 am
11:45 am Found all-day parking (five blocks from my apartment), but didn't get to unload all my stuff. I drag a bag to my apartment. Now heading out again. Checking self in mirror. Ok, I look normal. Good to roll.


11:45 am11:45 am But before we go, check out my pillow room/library. My roommate has a lot of books. But being me, I wanted my pillow room. Oh yes and I have a huge tarepanda.



11:47 am
11:47 am At the gate outside my door. There's a silver BMW 300 series parked right outside at that meter. I see that every morning and it always...makes me hold my breath. Is it? But it isn't.



12:10 pm
12:10 pm I take the BART downtown and walk up past Union Square. Decorations for Christmas is still up. Next to palm trees, trolleys, and Saks!



1:37 pm
1:37 pm Got a new dentist. Like any hipsters, I yelped him. I needed a sensitive, understanding dentist. And amazingly he was. I didn't walk out with pain and rejection.



1:45 pm1:45 pm How about a stop by H&M? For a bit of guilty pleasure? Perhaps find more ways to wear my new leggings under short skirts? Hipster-style? In reality, I meandered the store for about 8 minutes and walked out.



2:15 pm
2:15 pm Taking the escalator out of the BART station in the mission.



2:15 pm
2:15 pm A look back at the Mission station. It's wonderful how they have the sculptures here... Now that my afternoon is open, what to do!



3:09 pm
3:09 pm Back at my apartment, I im Shroom to bug him about the DG.



3:19 pm
3:19 pm I check my mailbox and find out that I got something from Stephanie! Yay! I can't wait to see her...soon!



3:48 pm
3:48 pm I start vacuuming. My angela adams rug is shedding and needs a pick-me-up. Is dust supposed to gather up like that in the vacuum? I don't know...but it looks cool.



4:15 pm
4:15 pm Trying to go grocery shopping at the grocery down the block from my apartment. Those two African American ladies started an argument right after I took the photo. I buy only bananas and bell peppers there. Less than $3. I am happy.



4:37 pm
4:37 pm My perfect parallel parking job. I did it in one swoop. (Little did I know that I would have a difficult time parallel parking later in a very easy spot...)



5:42 pm
5:42 pm I drop off the rest of the stuff in the trunk in my apartment. And for some stupid reason, I decide I want to drive around the city--get to a garage sale and see the chair I want at Staples. I never find the sale and never find Staples. But in this picture, I am driving through Twin Peaks--a great view of the Bay Area. Although I have to admit at this time, I am having...a long txt msg conversation. Not a great idea while driving...



6:36 pm
6:36 pm I park the car (badly) and head to a local upscale grocery store to buy the last things I need for tomorrow's Oyster shucking in Tomales Bay. I splurge on challah bread and salted caramel ice cream. I don't need to tell you how great the ice cream is.



7:41 pm
7:41 pm I make my dinner. Chicken, potatoes, apples, bell peppers...and my dazzle of spices and sauce. Into the oven it goes at 450 degrees. Will it turn out perfect? We shall see!


8:02 pm
8:02 pm In the meantime, I clean up the kitchen. The limes that I bought in early December (for my housewarming) have begun to rot. Some of turned completely into mold and powder is everywhere. The green is still on the counter...so I take a picture!



8:20 pm
8:20 pm The after picture! Done? I eat one chicken and I find it's a bit raw. So I sprinkle more sugar over everything and shove it back into the oven.



12:55 am
12:55 am Pleasantly surprised! And the night fast forwards on its on...I end it watching the 4400 which I had never seen. A bit far-fetched, but the sci-fi is addicting. I love love the projector and surround sound. Good night!
