Rebecca, a sorority sister, was in San Francisco this weekend because, coincidentally enough, she was also attending the Admitted Students Day at Hastings. We had brunch today with Amy, my coworker and another Chi Omega, and one of Amy’s girlfriends Natalie. All of us UCLA girls. It was nice having a girls’ brunch. I haven’t had one of these in a while.
We had a slight miscommunication over locale since there’s a Crepe House on Polk St. as well as on Valencia St., but we got it sorted out and I met up with the girls in the Mission.
The food was completely unmemorable, but the company was great. The Crepe House on Valencia is also very different from the Crepe House on Polk. It reminded me of the Grove with all the exposed wood beams, benches, and small tables.
I got to know Natalie – turns out she also works for Google like M – and was Amy’s college roommate freshman and sophomore years. We all talked about boys (of course), life plans, careers, potential future paths, and a whole slew of other topics ranging from the philosophical to the downright disgusting. Younger siblings + a lot of booze + pristine house – parents = huge barfy mess.
After sitting around for quite a long time at the Crepe House, we got on the 49 to go downtown. Natalie was looking for a window bench though and I told her how much I love Leftovers, the consignment store on Sutter and Polk, and we all decided to go check it out. Natalie found the perfect tufted pouf to place by her window at Leftovers’ sister store on Bush and Polk.
Since we were so close to my apartment, a quick stop allowed everyone to meet M and play with the kitties. M was a sweetheart and didn’t even mind his personal space being invaded by four very chatty girls.
Rebecca had to go pretty soon after to catch her flight back down to Los Angeles, but there’s always time for dessert. Gelato for all.
Both Rebecca and I have pretty difficult choices up ahead. She has to decide where she wants to go because she applied to a ton of places. I have to decide whether law school is even in the cards.
Whatever happens, I’m confident it will all turn out excellent.
