An Open Letter to Washington D.C.

Monday, May 22, 2017

It is with a heavy heart that I have left the District of Columbia and the numerous people and experiences that I encountered this past semester. Even after only a few days back in Cincinnati, I've realized how much I have gained from my time in Washington. Because of this, I wanted to say a few words to all the people I met and places I visited during my time in D.C.   1. An Open Letter to my TWC Friends   Dear close friends and roommates:

What's the Weather Like in D.C.?

Monday, May 08, 2017

As my time in the nation's capital comes to a close, I feel it's appropriate to talk about something that most people use to start a conversation: the weather. Washington D.C. is a city that isn't very consistent with its weather (albeit much more consistent than my hometown of Cincinnati). Seriously, I'm not exaggerating when I say it went from 80 degrees one day to 35 degrees the next. Or when I say I've experience all four seasons in the matter of two hours.

If you want to find yourself in a position where you have possession of the puck in the bottom of the ninth as you pull up to the three-point line to score the equalizing goal, then Washington D.C. is your place for sports.  

Abilities of Washingtonians

Saturday, April 29, 2017

Some people may be disheartened to find out they have a disability that will stay with them the rest of their lives. However, I have noticed that many Washingtonians seem to take this circumstance in stride and are able to use resources available throughout the city to overcome barriers that may be presented by a disability.

The Benefits of Good Neighbors

Monday, April 24, 2017

After walking back to my room from our most recent Speaker Series session, I ran into a few of my neighbors on the same side of the hallway as me. We quickly struck up a conversation about the opinions we had on the speakers, the politics and policies that affected what the speakers were saying, and the questions that students were asking during the session.

The other day, I was reading an article on LinkedIn (yeah, I know) called 5 Leadership lessons to learn from Khaleesi of "Game of Thrones." While I am a huge fan of Khaleesi, it also got me thinking about what else I might be able to learn from TV shows and movi

The Perks of Being a Washingtonian

Monday, April 03, 2017

In 1999, Stephen Chbosky released "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," a book that brought to light the type of person known as a "wallflower," someone who stands to the sides of life and prefers to observe things happening rather than being involved with it themselves.

An Introduction to the D.C. Metro

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

There are two types of people: those who are confused by how public transportation works and those who are lying.  

A How-to Guide: Writing to Congress

Monday, March 20, 2017

We the people, in this crazy place we call America, often get very upset when politics don't go our way. While public protests are a vocal way to make your opinion heard, I feel there might be a quieter way to let your opinion be known that might make even more of an impact: writing to your Congressman or Congresswoman.  

Meet the People Behind My Internship

Monday, March 13, 2017

There is an old adage that says, "You can't choose your family." In the case of my internship site, Same Day Process (SDP), that saying could be expanded to, "You can't choose your family, which includes your co-workers."
