In no particular order, ten things I like about living here in San Jose, after ten days in the city.
  1. Being able to keep the windows open all day long. In August.
  2. For the first time in my life, being within walking distance of a real grocery store.
  3. Wide variety of media outlets, both corporate and independent.
  4. The mountain range on the horizon during my commute to work.
  5. Friendly people.
  6. Widely open and easygoing culture.
  7. Extensive and growing mass transit that works.
  8. Fry's Electronics.
  9. Seeing every sign translated into Spanish and Vietnamese.
  10. Businesses that don't open until after 9AM.
In no particular order, ten things I would like to do by this time next year.
  1. Walk the boardwalk at Santa Cruz.
  2. Visit the Metreon.
  3. Ride the new VTA line to the airport.
  4. Go to a show in downtown San Jose.
