"The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity."
"You see someone on the street and essentially what you notice about them is the flaw. Our whole guise is like giving a sign to the world to think of us in a certain way but there's a point between what you want people to know about you and what you can't help people knowing about you."

"I'm quite the blog whore and couldn't help but notice links to your site from all of my favorite blogs and I thought, "Who's this chick?" Well, I spent a great part of Sunday evening reading your blog and combing through your Flickr photostream... you are A M A Z I N G."

"Victoria's voice through writing (sfgirlbybay) and view of the world through her digi cam have such a universally, appealing and creative feel. Her blog up-lifts me and her photos make me smile (and also make me ask her lots of annoying questions like a little sister would) AND this girl finds the COOLEST photos on flickr"

"Definitely my friend, a very good San Francisco "journalist", she makes you wanna take the plane to her town rightaway. She's so funny, so kind, so unique..."
