I’ve avoided writing anything detailed about the changes happening in my
life for a while now, mostly out of fear of “jinxing” something (and
because I needed to get to a place where I was OK just talking about
some of them). My bio on
the Creative Commons staff
listing has been updated for
a while now, but I haven’t mentioned it here: starting a couple weeks
ago, I’m the new CTO at Creative Commons. I’ve told some friends that
this is the first job in years I don’t really know how to
do_, and that’s a
pretty exciting place to be for me.
This change in position at work has led to the second big change in my
life, one that was given away by a commenter back in
April. Next month,
I’m moving to San Francisco. I’ve actually been working from the office
in SF this week, getting up to speed on things. I was intending to look
at neighborhoods so I’d know where to look when it finally came time to
move out here. I assumed that the sale of the house would be a
lingering, drawn-out process, and that in July or August I’d finally
convince someone to take the house — “please!” — and be able to move.
It’s been a bit faster than that.
The house went into MLS on Monday, April 30. On Tuesday we had two
showings, and by Tuesday night I had an offer. Wednesday I countered,
and by the end of the day my counter offer had been accepted. So yeah,
the house sold in under a week_. The buyers have already sold their
home, and are closing May 24, so our agreement calls for us to close
by May 31, with possession 7 days later.
So this week I’ve been actually looking for an apartment for
myself. Finding an apartment in my price range that will take a dog has
been a bit of a challenge, but this afternoon I’m signing a lease for a
one bedroom near Duboce and
I like the location a lot, as it seems pretty close to lots of things
(including a park for Maddie) which is important since I’m selling my
car before I leave. So yeah, barring something unforeseen, I’ll be
living in San Francisco in less than a month. Wow.

So the realtor sign showed up in the yard yesterday while I was gone,
and we had two showings last night. MLS information available
