    Who here grew up in NorCal?

    Anyone born and raised here? If not, how old were you when you got here?

    What part of NorCal?


    Me - born and raised in The Citay.

    I now live in Contra Costa.

    Ok, I'll bite - I got here in 2002 (I turned 40 a while later), live in San Ramon. I was born on the Jersey Shore - we used to sneak into the Stone Pony in high school, hoping Bruce would jump up on stage with whatever band was playing that night (sometimes he did). I took the long way here - my company at the time transferred me from NY to Dallas to NY to Poland to Israel to London then finally to Irvine, CA. Then I took a job with a company in SF, otherwise I'd be looking at that Girls of SoCal thread.

    Ya know....we can start a Ladies of NorCal thread but I think there's like....what - THREE of us or something? It would be boring.

    But we can start a Guys of NorCal thread...

    What there's a ladies of SoCal thread!?!?

    I was born in Hong Kong, moved to Stockton in at seven months old where I pretty much grew up. I had a pretty "normal" childhood; played with kids around the block, left the house to play all day and got back for dinner, had all the normal neighborhood dramas, and all within a Chinese community around downtown Stockton. I left for SF in 1990 to attend SF State and have pretty much been in SF till 2001 when I moved to San Bruno. I live in on campus apartments at SF State, then on 47th and Lawton in the Sunset, then Page St and Steiner in Lower Haight, then Clementina and 5th St in SOMA, then Henry St and Noe in Duboce Triangle. Now living in San Bruno, it's nice having a .5 mile commute.

    Born in Daly City premature quite a bit. That's why my skin has a yellow tint to it.

    Lived in Pacifica half my life, South City the other half.

    I grew up on the beach. I'm a norcal boy. I s'pose.

    I was born in Ankara, Turkey. Lived and schooled in Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, England, and the US. Since graduating college, I have lived in 9 houses in CA, AZ (twice), NJ (twice), DC. Finally moved back to my favorite place - the Bay Area, 11 years ago. Now I live along the Pacific Ocean in Half Moon Bay, and I'll never move again !

    Born and raised in San Francisco. I moved to Silicon Valley in Dec of 2002 to cut down the commute. I still miss not having the ocean 18 blocks away but I don't miss the lack of parking. I'm up in the city one day a weekend to help my mother who no longer drives so I get my fog fix in then.

    Born in San Francisco, lived there until 4.5 yrs

    Moved to Buffalo, NY (where parents were originally from) lived there until 13.

    Moved to Los Angeles, lived there for a summer (with my Mother), but decided to leave.

    Moved back to Buffalo, NY, lived there for grades 9-11 (with my Father)

    Moved to Bradenton, FL for my senior year of HS (with my Grandparents, while my Father moved back to NorCal).

    Moved to Tucson, AZ where I attended the U. of Arizona for 2 yrs.

    Moved *back* to NorCal in 2003 (Foster City, with my Father when I first got here).

    Now I live in San Mateo, and I love it.

    Note: Funny thing is my Mom moved to NorCal (Contra Costa Co) a few months before my Dad did. So now we all live in NorCal.. Heh.
