For those of you following my epic emo saga of getting kicked out of the city I love, San Francisco, I've already found a new place in Oakland. I'm going to be living on the beautiful Lake Merritt with a couple of my childhood friends.

One of them is my sister's best friend growing up, and she is basically a second sister. She is a painter that pays the bills by working at a book store. Her boyfriend has been a friend of mine since the first grade, and he is a nurse. The last roommate is new to me, but he is a comic book artist and I can't wait to learn more about him.

Rent at the new place is almost half of what I would have to pay at my current place. I don't even know what I'll do with the extra money. Save it? What?

ANYWAY, Bay Area Jezzies, lets have our meet up on the East Bay. The view from Lake Merritt is pretty fucking fine. I'm really starting to like the place already.
