This is Where I’ll Live

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.
