Less Than a Month Remaining

Less Than a Month Remaining

"It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad."

- C.S. Lewis

 

 

Less than a month remains for my time in D.C. The arrival of the warm weather and the bloom of the cherry blossoms have brought the realization of this fact. For myself, this awareness brings undefinable emotions. I will be glad to see my friends and family back home and I look forward to graduating. The anticipation of returning to Massachusetts and seeing everyone back home is exciting. But, I did not realize how much I am going to miss D.C. and all the people I have met here until I realized how little time I have remaining in Washington.

 

 

As I viewed the thousands of visitors flocking to see the cherry blossoms this weekend, I realized how integrated Washington has become in my life. All of the students in The Washington Center program have a unique shared experience living in D.C. We are no longer simply interns visiting for a few months. We have become part of the tapestry that makes this city a destination for so many people.

 

 

Many students have decided to stay in D.C. to work and live. Others, like myself, will return home with new knowledge that will help steer our careers. Wherever we go and whatever we decide to do, we will be much like the cherry blossoms in D.C. In the right season we will bloom and will change the landscape around us for the better.
