Hello from Washington D.C.!!!
Thought I'd drop a line while cruising around the Capital. Yesterday was perfect. Had a tour of the White House, where I got close to the prez ;) (or at least his living quarters), saw the national Christmas tree, and got used to the metro. Later that night Christyn and I got some Chinese take-out and watched Sleepless in Seattle (my 1st time). Great way to end a chilly night with an old friend.
Today was even better! I love Alexandria, Virginia. Quite a bit. ESPECIALLY the Torpedo Factory. We explored the town all day pretty much. After that we met up with another old friend, Jacob, over some cupcakes. I really like D.C. thus far. And it doesn't hurt being in such great company.
More to come soon, with some pics not from my camera phone. Be excited. I am.

Friends and family are soon going to be back for Christmas! And I leave for D.C. very soon. I can hardly contain myself!
P.S.- I have a project I'd like to do with postcards soon. I'd love to get a postcard from you from wherever you are...More details to come, but something to keep in mind.

Speaking of red balloons, this movie reminds me of this pretty shweet song:
And, just because I AM that big of a nerd: TECHNO REMIX
I don't know if you caught a line in there that said "everyones a Captain Kirk" but that got me thinking. Now, I’m not a trekky, but I will admit to really really enjoying the Star Trek movie this year.
After I saw this with some friends, we went out for ice cream. We had so much fun, and the ice cream was pretty good too…better than the ice cream I was just eating, which brings us to our stop. I’m back to the moment where I’m having ice cream for breakfast.

Thought I'd spread the word on some classy Christmas tunes :)

This weekend was wonderful!
I learned other things, but those are what stuck out to me the most. You know you had a great time, when you wake up and can barely move, and your voice is gone! (Me)
Life is good.

I think a couple weeks later my roommate was cleaning the bowl, and it broke. That’s when I busted out my tank (which wouldn’t surprise those closest to me. That is a typical thing for me to have…for many reasons…most unknown to others). He loved his new home. You could see it in his swishing and swashing (what I interpret to be his smile…although bettas are rather aggressive…but that’s just how he shows affection).
He lived in the living room, and that’s when we made a strong connection. I’ve never known a fish to make me laugh out loud, or feel like he is doing something for me. After my roommate moved out, she left Squishy where he was strongly loved. After I moved out, he moved to where he was strongly loved.With me. Now, every morning he looks right at me, and smiles.

In my un-distraction, I thought about how much time I have in a day. What do I do with that time? Mainly I avoid what I enjoy, because I feel like I need to be job searching. In reality, I need to be creative. I want to love what I do...So I will.
While on my walk I found this great tree stump. There are toadstools all up and down its side. I could just imagine a little person jumping from stair to stair, working their way up…just like me :)
I’ve got tons to post, that I’ve not shared these last few weeks (I’ve been distracted). Expect them to come soon.

I turned down so many amazing opportunities this summer to make time for finding a real grown-up job...didn't happen (bad advice). Talk about a bad time to graduate college. And talk about a hard thing to get through. Everyday is a struggle and a beating on the self-worth, but it will pass. I was used to putting in a full 12 hours of solid productivity a day. Now, it's not too fun to put so much time into something (job searching), with no return. SO, if anyone has any ideas, I'm open to them. :)
When I went climbing, I noticed that at each new climb finding a place to start was the hardest part. After that things went a little smoother. So, I guess I just need to find my footing and start climbing up.

Mom brought it home, after calling my sister and me to tell us the crazy news (that she had an eggplant with half a face). Wish I had more time to make more fun faces, and give this eggplant the photo shoot it deserves. But this is all I've got time for.
Time to party in Cinci
