<p class="MsoNormal">I&rsquo;m a full-time staff writer here at DivineCaroline. That means I get paid to write about things that interest and excite me and learn something new every day&mdash;two essential components to my overall happiness. Currently I reside in the bustling city of San Francisco, where there is never a shortage of things to do or people to gawk at. I can look out at my window and see families walking their dogs or a homeless guy urinating in the doorway of the neighboring caf&eacute;. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure it&rsquo;s not some wonderful dream&hellip;</p> <p class="MsoNormal">In my spare time, I like to be with my friends, which often involves finding new bars to frequent, restaurants to gush over, and dancing to embarrassingly bad hip-hop and pop music. In my employed time, I am lucky enough to work for a great Web site with intelligent, creative people by my side. Feel free to follow me on Twitter at <a href="http://twitter.com/VeniVitiVicki"><strong>twitter.com/VeniVitiVicki</strong></a> if you like reading random thoughts about news events, favorite stories, and frequent burrito cravings.<small><span><br /> </span></small></p>
