'Tis the Season This weekend will be my last weekend here in DC. I can't tell if I'm more excited to go home for the holidays and see my friends and family again, or if I'm more sad to leave the friends and life I made here. Either way, it's been an exhilarating experience and I don't know that I will ever experience anything like it again. I've been so busy these last few weeks as work and assignments flood my agenda. Thus, I am a little behind on the weekly updates!   The Season of Stuffing

  There is exactly one month left until this journey officially ends. This week was extremely stressful for me, causing it to pass by so quickly I barely remember the start of it. There was so much work to be done, both at work and for the program. Things are starting to wrap up in every direction. Term assignments for my academic course, and other projects and assignments for the program have been piling up.

 Another Week in DC. There's nothing more pleasant than a walk to Capitol Hill on an early autumn morning.

Mirage the People

When I first applied to The Washington Center, my only conception of the program was that I would be doing an internship and taking an academic seminar that would generate enough credits to cover a semester for me—the best part of it all is being situated in Washington, DC.  Halfway through the semester, it’s finally registering to me that this is an opportunity much greater than I have given it credit for.

What's happening in D.C.?

Take A Minute

    Ever experienced culture shock? Well, you're about to with grand magnitude! Most of you have probably been abroad either for work, school, or just a getaway. But how about being immersed in the plethora of about 15 countries at one time?     Food Contest

Georgetown. One of the first places that people will go to once in DC. I, however, was a little behind. I finally decided that there was an urgent need to visit Georgetown a little after a month now, at least before the weather turned ugly. Sorry to
