I love living in Oakland and have been here since 2010. I lived in SF for 3 years before that and am originally from Santa Barbara. I currently don't have a car and bike everywhere. I am a locavore, meaning over 90% of my income is spent supporting the local economy and businesses. In particular food and health are huge to me, my number one priority. There is a very little that I don't like except stress! I try to avoid that at all costs in whatever form it takes. I am a practitioner of Gratitude meditation and Grateful living because it helps me focus on what is positive around me rather than getting caught up in what tears us down. Cheerio!
