So, I've been in DC for a couple days now:
Living space is comical and completely temporary, but includes great roommates and great Foggy Bottom location.
I work at Center for American Progress with the student mobilization arm, Campus Progress, where really profound things are written and events with free drinks are hosted.
The people are awesome, intimidatingly smart and so much more committed to causes than I could ever hope to be. I'm sort of realizing that I'm much more opinionated than activist.
Just an example: I am completely disturbed, outraged and overwhelmed with feelings about the George Tiller murder and think certain conservative pundits are absolute criminals.
I can't wait to further explore the city, take a weekend trip to Cape Cod, experience more of the DC political scene and ride the metro with easy confidence (so, right now I get lost an average of three times per day...).
The view from Natalie's balcony is insane.
This city is run on pure youth.
Shopping at the Safeway inside the Watergate building sufficiently creeps me out - I literally got goosebumps.
Other than that, I'm exhausted and have trouble processing my thoughts/talking in complete sentences. Whew, 9 to 6.
And, of course, I miss everyone. Wish you were here.
Also, just watched Glee pilot - both entertaining and oddly inspiring.
