What I will miss. . .

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:

  1. The humid heat
  2. Not having a car--but seriously, it was real crick in my neck.
  3. 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.  
  4. Expensive.  Things are just more expensive here ya know?
  5. The inefficient subway system.  New York's subway system is way better, and DC's wouldn't let me eat on it.  Not okay.
  6. That's all.
What I will miss desperately:

  1. Sammy Dodini: You made my summer, sir.  Those summer nights were full of such good bread pudding and shake shack burgers.
  2. Working at a flagship J.Crew store in historical Georgetown.  We had a bouncer and earthing.
  3. The people I worked with at the National Dance Education Organization.  They were so fun.
  4. Shopping. Shopping. Shopping.
  5. Good food. Good food. Good food.
  6. 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.
  7. Black people.  This is not meant to sound racist.  I literally love African Americans.
  8. Jim Gaffigan and Flula.  If you don't know who these people are, look them up on youtube.
  9. The fact that New York is only a short bus trip away.
  10. Homeless people begging for money. . . okay not really, but seriously sometimes it really broke my heart.
  11. 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.
  12. The fact that there was a Whole Foods and a Trader Joes a walking distance from my apartment.
  13. My roomies!  I didn't see them much, but when I did, it was a freaking blast.
  14. The Olympics.  OH ya. . . that wasn't exclusive to D.C. but they will be missed, nonetheless.
  15. Screen on the Green, which are outdoor movies on the National Mall.
  16. Green Everywhere!!!!  The east coast is flourishing with a canopy of green trees everywhere, and it's gorgeous.
  17. 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.
  18. The history that D.C. presents.  It is so rich with history.
  19. Eastern Market.  That place has the best da%$ pancakes I have ever eaten. Yep.
  20. Standing mine and Sam's "spot" on the Subway everyday.  Trust, it was the same spot every time.
  21. If I think of anything else, I will be sure to add it.  I'll be seeing you D.C. 


  1. Sounds like a great fun time! Awesome! I visited DC (and philly) for the first time in May. Lovely.


  2. You are so nice Meg! I will miss you too. I wish you were staying longer. We'll chat, I want to hear about your job and next plans. Lots and lots of piles of love, Lauren

  3. I was in DC a few years ago...I thought the city had such charm.

    I love both of your lists...I want a "subway spot" :)

  4. That pic of you is SO cute!!! P.s. that "scalp on the subway" in the last post is way gross, but I can't look away lol! Cute blog :-) Xo
