It seems pretty common that when kids reach a certain age, most think about, even dream about, moving away from home. My daughter was no different. When she reached that certain age in high school, all she wanted to do was move away from Stockton and experience what it was like to live in San Francisco. Perhaps after living here most of her life, she was tired of the predictable heat of summer and how her hometown name constantly got dragged through the mud. Perhaps it was because she was ready to see what was beyond the valley for herself. She wanted to see new things and meet different people. After 2 years at San Joaquin Delta College, she finally had her chance to transfer to a school in San Francisco this past August.
