    Look at the little things,

    You never miss the little things until your thousands of miles from it.
    Damn California had the cutest boys. I joined the Military, and look where its gotten me, the states of Montana, for the record? a state known for having the second coldest temp recorded, just under Alaska. Lisssten, I love the mountains, I love the trees, and i love the snow and all..

    but..

    Some of the things i love about San Francisco..

    EVERYTHING. I miss the loud streets, i miss taking BART so i wouldnt ever have to drive my car and spend hundreds of dollars on gas every week. Now I cant get out of my apartment without one.

    Ex:

    The Great Highway/Sunset District
    Ocean Ave
    The Haight street
    Downtown Powell
    Civic Center
    FUCKING Castro.."at times." (grew up there, its not all sunshine)
    Mission st (all of it even 7th street) been in some trouble there.
    28 Ave!
    The Muni/Metro/BART
    I miss the FOG! i miss State University on Holloway.
    Forrest hill and more!

    For my monthly visitors and tourists,

    I miss the..
    Golden Gate Bridge
    The Piers
    The Cable Cars
    CHINA TOWN
    Japan Town
    Filipino Town (my bad that's Daly City)
    Oakland, Nah just teasing.
    Even the most obnoxious people that come up from Los Angeles!
    Yes i miss it all.

    I miss a lot of things bout SF so, hit me up when i come visit.

    Montana? You need to make friends with the right people. Ya know.. the type of people that can help you transfer to a more desirable assignment. icon_biggrin.gif

    Yer young! There are many other places that might even be better than SF ( I know, I'm from there icon_wink.gif )for different reasons.. enjoy it. If you plan on actually making the career of the military, SF is only going to be a vacation destination for many years to come.

    Travis isnt that close, and not sure if Hamilton is still open.

    I used to live in SF and enjoyed my time there.

    But life is lived in the present. You'll drive yourself crazy thinking about what you no longer have. Yes, you want to keep things you cherish, but life is a series of saying goodbye to more. Wishing for yesterday will make you old quickly.

    Grab onto what you have now and make the most of it. You have a great military career waiting for you. New friends to make. New opportunities to experience life. My dad was in the military and he has fond memories despite going incredibly tough challenges.

    Think about it that way. If you didn't stay in Montana, San Francisco would still be just "that city you live in".

    Living somewhere else gives you new perspectives on this wonderful place you spent your life in.

    I used to think of Montreal as a pretty regular, cold, average city. Then, I spent 4 months in Vancouver. Don't get me wrong, Vancouver is beautiful city, but it's 250 years behind Montreal :p
