I’ve been seeing a lot of the DC sites, including art museums, monuments and the zoo. If you want to see my photos, visit my flickr. I’ll paste some entries to from my website so you can read about me at least…
Update on the new life… it’s been a while. I spend my first two weekends traveling home, so I haven’t really settled into anything just yet. I had a friend’s wedding two weekends ago and last weekend I went home for my Mom’s graduation (so proud of her). I also saw a concert, Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace, in PA with Lydia. Breaking Benjamin was awesome, Three Days Grace was a little disappointing.
Last Thursday I played my first company softball game. I was all worried that I was going to suck, but it turns out the team itself has a lot of people playing that have never played before, so I’m like really good in comparison. One girl even called me the all star because I caught like 4 pop flys. I hit really well too, in the outfield almost every time! They are happy to have me on the team and I’m glad to be playing again. Although my jersey says “DEB” on the back, which is confusing for people. I missed the shirt ordering, so I got someone who couldn’t play. Which is fine, I don’t really care as long as I get to play. William let me borrow his bug spray cause of the bugs…. what bugs I ask you, I dunno. He said they were bad, but I didn’t see a bug. Now, back home on the fields entire swarms of bugs surround you in the outfield… those are bugs. Too funny. But holy crap, it’s hot!! I’m melting. Our first game was relatively cool too, so I know I’m going to melt. I need to find some gym shorts somewhere, my supply has dwindled over the years and the elastic is going in my last pair. Friday the high was 96 and summer is just getting started. Its been a bit cooler since, but still toasty!
Last night I went to a party with my roommate, Bethany. That was really fun. I’m glad to have gone to a social setting! I drank some beer, played some beer pong and made a s’more. Good times.
This weekend I ventured into DC. The metro is just right down the road 5 minutes. Then I ride the subway into DC… about 20 min depending on where you are going. Saturday I went to The Phillips Collection and Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. I took many photos. Then, I lost my metro card. Damn. So I took a cab to meet my roommate Bethany and her friend Lia at the Georgetown waterfront for some Pizza, Ice Cream and people watching. We strolled around the waterfront and let the dogs walk themselves. It’s really cute. Brady takes the leash in his mouth and walks with us. People just think it’s adorable (I have to agree). After we came home, we picked up Amanda and headed back to DC to see the Memorials at night. Wow, they are amazing. I saw the Lincoln, Jefferson, Roosevelt, WW2 and Washington.
Yesterday I went to the zoo. I saw lots of animals and took lots of photos. I then hit a Sushi bar I found called Spices. It was ok. I also bought a book, 60 hikes within 60 miles of DC. So I’m looking forward to checking some of those out.
