perfectlyflawedxox asked: Next summer I have the chance to intern in San Francisco, but I was wondering if there are any clubs or anything fun for someone 17 to do on nights and weekends to meet new people? I would be alone there for 2.5 months and would love to meet some people, or have some things planned to do there or something aha. Please respond back if you know of anything x

That’s awesome. Most dance clubs are 18+ or 21+, but there are always music events, comedy clubs/improv shows, museum events, and theatre! SF Weekly is a really useful resource for these things.  =)

Giants baseball games are also great to go to, and you can have some really fun conversations with the people around you.

I hope that helps a little bit!

loststormydreamer asked: Heyo! What's San Francisco really like? I've lived in Orange County/ Los Angeles my whole life and I do like it here but I've always had a strong love for SF even though I've never visited. But from what I've seen, the environment seems really calming and everyone's all relaxed and chill instead the high paced feel here. Is everyone as nice and relaxed as they seem? Oh! Is it easy to get a job there? I'm applying to colleges there this year and if I get accepted I hope it's not hard to find one

Hey there!

San Franciscans, generally speaking, are friendly and easy-going people. That being said, there are a bunch of different neighborhoods in San Francisco, so you can meet a lot of different kinds of people. And… it is definitely a fast-paced city if you go anywhere downtown. I strongly suggest visiting some time before officially choosing a university.

If you have any kind of retail experience, it shouldn’t be hard to find a job in the city (If you’re not at all picky!). If you’re looking for something specific (i.e. waiting tables in the Financial District, working at Nordstrom, being a receptionist), it’ll be pretty tough.

Best of luck with your applications!
