Over my summer in the nations capital, there are a few things that I am really going to miss, and some things I not really going to miss.
Let's start with the things I won't miss:
- The humid heat
- Not having a car--but seriously, it was real crick in my neck.
- Street people. What are those, you ask? Those are people who are on the streets trying to talk slash convince you to donate to a cause i.e. help international, pro-abortion charities, pro-gay charities, "Try this new Hummus!" people. They drive me nuts.
- Expensive. Things are just more expensive here ya know?
- The inefficient subway system. New York's subway system is way better, and DC's wouldn't let me eat on it. Not okay.
- That's all.
What I will miss desperately:
- Sammy Dodini: You made my summer, sir. Those summer nights were full of such good bread pudding and shake shack burgers.
- Working at a flagship J.Crew store in historical Georgetown. We had a bouncer and earthing.
- The people I worked with at the National Dance Education Organization. They were so fun.
- Shopping. Shopping. Shopping.
- Good food. Good food. Good food.
- The city night life. There is always something fun to do and someone to do it with. AKA Sam and I going to Dupont Circle and watching Three black men break dance whilst they also cradle a new born baby.
- Black people. This is not meant to sound racist. I literally love African Americans.
- Jim Gaffigan and Flula. If you don't know who these people are, look them up on youtube.
- The fact that New York is only a short bus trip away.
- Homeless people begging for money. . . okay not really, but seriously sometimes it really broke my heart.
- The fast pace-"ness" of it all. I hated it at first because I'm a country girl, but I really grew to love it.
- The fact that there was a Whole Foods and a Trader Joes a walking distance from my apartment.
- My roomies! I didn't see them much, but when I did, it was a freaking blast.
- The Olympics. OH ya. . . that wasn't exclusive to D.C. but they will be missed, nonetheless.
- Screen on the Green, which are outdoor movies on the National Mall.
- Green Everywhere!!!! The east coast is flourishing with a canopy of green trees everywhere, and it's gorgeous.
- My friend, Lauren Richey. We have been friends since we met in Jerusalem in 2008, and I won't get to see her beautiful face anymore.
- The history that D.C. presents. It is so rich with history.
- Eastern Market. That place has the best da%$ pancakes I have ever eaten. Yep.
- Standing mine and Sam's "spot" on the Subway everyday. Trust, it was the same spot every time.
- If I think of anything else, I will be sure to add it. I'll be seeing you D.C.
