My Last Week In D.C.

My Last Week In D.C.

Unfortunately, readers, this was my last week in the Nation's capital...

I have decided to leave program early. There are a number of reasons why, but none of those reasons are due to the Washington Center Program itself. In fact, I am leaving early solely for personal reasons. So to end my time in D.C., I felt it was very important for me to spend it with the people I had become closest with while I was here.


Friday evening I went out to dinner with a few of my friends in celebration of a mutual friend’s birthday. I’ve never been a really big partier, but it was a great opportunity to get together with some amazing people and just enjoy each other’s company.


Saturday afternoon was relatively quiet for me, as I was busy packing and getting my belongings together. Later that evening, I spent one of my last nights inside my cozy apartment, sipping wine with fellow blogger Rebecca. I’ve been so fortunate to meet so many amazing people, and I am truly blessed to have met Rebecca.


Sunday was a little more exciting. I walked over to Union Market with a small group of friends and, once we arrived, we spent the afternoon indulging in the different food venues that are available at the market. It really was a perfect afternoon of good food and great company.


I am sad to be leaving D.C., especially so early on. This whole experience has taught me a lot about myself, and I have no regrets. I am happy that I was able to see all of the monuments and experience a little bit of what D.C. had to offer; all the while working at an amazing institution and learning so much.


D.C., you will be missed.
