So – I was browsing the blog-o-sphere like I often do, looking for fun stuff about San Francisco and about SF Real Estate when I ran across FriscoVistaâ€™s â€œTop Ten Classic Frisco tunesâ€.Â
And as one thing often leads to another, I found one of FriscoVistaâ€™s older posts where he (the blog author) took a SF Bay Area Native Test at okcupid.com – and he (the blog author) did a hell of a job by scoring a whopping 17 out of 18!Â
Partially because Iâ€™m competitive as hell, and partially because I claim to be an â€œalmost nativeâ€ San Franciscan (I was born in the former Soviet Union, a.k.a. todayâ€™s Ukraine, but came to San Francisco when I was just two and a half years old), I decided to take the test andâ€¦.
I scored a 16 out of 18 which puts me at:
16-18 correct – Youâ€™re a true Bay Area native – and you even got some of the EXTRA CREDIT questions! Impressive. Feel free to look down on Los Angeles with pride. (You probably already do.)
Yes – I admit, FriscoVistaÂ beat my score, but Iâ€™m human.Â And I took the test late at night (um, or is it early morning?) and I didnâ€™t eat my Wheaties today (that whole low carb thing doesnâ€™t allow for Wheaties).Â But it still called me a â€œTrue Bay Area Nativeâ€ – I done good!Â
I often tell people that Iâ€™m as close to being native as I can get without actually being born here.Â Iâ€™ll spare you the full story (you can check out the about meÂ page if you like) – but I have to say that Iâ€™m ridiculously lucky to not only live in the only City Iâ€™ve called home (or ever wanted to, for that matter), but to also be able to do what I love for a living (sell real estate) inÂ the best City in the world!
If you have questions about the City or about SF Real Estate, contact me – I love the City and am happy to help you call it â€œhomeâ€ too – even if youâ€™re not a native.Â
