Settling In

Joshua Lane / / 9 Comments

Slowly, but surely, I’m settling into my new apartment/job/life in San Francisco…


At the moment, my new apartment is very empty… no desk, no shelves, no tables, no rugs, no chairs, no couch. I have a bed, a couch due to be delivered in a few weeks, and my computer propped up on some boxes. Living the dream! I’m hoping to get things in order over the next couple months, but not having a car makes furniture buying a little difficult.


For those who haven’t heard the news yet, I’m the new Senior Web Designer / Information Architect at Creative B’stro in San Francisco. It’s a small interactive agency that does a little of everything. They had a need for a senior-level web designer with IA experience. They also needed someone who knew the ins and outs of html and css. It’s a pretty good fit :)


I haven’t done a great deal of socializing yet, but I’m taking my time I guess. Eventually I plan to get involved in some local design/web groups. And luckily I have a couple friends from college who live here, so I’m not completely lonely.

I love the B’stro home page copy. Looks like a fun place to work!

Ah! I was wondering if you’d ever give us an update!

The best way to meet people in San Francisco is to break out of Alcatraz.

@Jared – It’s one of the reasons I first submitted my resume. And the ping pong / conference table doesn’t hurt either ;)

@bearskinrug – “Break out of Alcatraz” added to my to-do list!

Looks like a cool place to be. Which is awesome, since you’re the ultimate in cool guys. (Even though you try to pretend like you’re not.) I hope you had a happy thanksgiving!

Drop me an email sometime and meet up for coffee. I work a few blocks from the ballpark in China Basin and live in The Richmond. It’s good to have you as a neighbor.

@parker – If only I had TIME to work on extra projects …life = too crazy!!!

@Leah – The “ultimate in cool guys”? Seriously? I’ll take it!

@James – I believe I will do that! Look for an email soon.

Aww-you moved??? And before you could come to NYC to visit me…well, odds are Marshall and I will end up in SF in the coming years (for his work, not mine). Good luck and maybe I will be able to catch up with you soon. (Marshall and I may be going to Napa for our honeymoon next fall so maybe we could meet up then!).

Congrats on the new job. I was in SF two weeks ago, such a beautiful city.
