100 days ago I left the Bay Area for Beijing.
It is all a little surreal.
I started a new life.
In a new city.
With a new job.
With new friends.
It has been mostly amazing and fun.
There have been some hard times trying to figure out issues with the apartment, a few travel issues, and other small things that really amount to almost nothing.
I just want to thank everyone that has made this transition so easy, so fun, and so positive. That includes my brother Robert, his wife, Shan Shan and her family, my boss, my family back home in the states, my friends here and back in the States, and last but not least, my girlfriend, Jill.
I actually don’t think I can thank Jill enough: Her sense of self is excellent. Her sense of humor is joyous. Her sense of what she wants, how she can attain it, and how easy things are if you just keep at it, is real. We make a wonderful team and our support of each other makes life so much easier than it would be if we were alone.
And to think that we met only 8 days before I moved to Beijing.
Jill helps reduce the whirlwind to a soft and gentle breeze.
