Yes — in the house, not behind that bush marked with the “A.” It’s a few blocks from the Capitol (and fewer from the Library of Congress and Folger Shakespeare Library), a few blocks from Eastern Market, near some cute little cafes and coffee shops, a straight shot to school, and close to Union Station. I’ll have a roommate — I think we hit it off well. It’s air-conditioned, so my summer sanity will be preserved (oh my gosh, you guys, it’s really freaking hot here).
I was not super excited about coming here a couple of days ago when I thought I was going to be paying $1,230 a month for a studio, but this is a much better deal. I’m feeling better now, excited to take advantage of all that DC has to offer. Which is a lot!
I’m planning an “everyone I know” party for the fall, to which everyone I know in the DC area will be invited. There are like six people, I think. I met up with a friend from library school who is excited to “do things and drink red wine while reminiscing about 10% humidity.” Word.
For now, though, I’m ready to be back in Denver for a few more weeks, tying up loose ends at work and spending time with all of my favorite people. I dreamt last night that my flight tomorrow was canceled; I hope it’s right on time.
