A Speedy Return


The Capitol

I was back in the capital before I could say "capitol." Who would have guessed?

I certainly didn’t have to wait long before I found myself back in this city. Here’s the short version:

I finished an internship at National Public Radio back in December – but not before I got snowed in during one of D.C. three historic winter storms of ’09-’10. Then I spent my last semester as a college student on my own lovely campus, Butler University. It was a hasty semester – filled with finishing up credits, living in a sorority house for the first time, and probably taking on more extracurriculars than I should have. But it was fun.

My love affair with D.C. never simmered. I applied for several jobs in February, flew to D.C. over spring break for some interviews and the following week I got an offer from Fight Crime: Invest in Kids. Four days after graduation, I hopped on a plane to start my job. If you want all the gritty details, head over to Digital Disciple.

I’ve been at my job for 7 days now. I count myself so lucky — for my parents’ support, for the friends who have welcomed me back, and for the fact that, well, I have a job.

Expect a lot more to come from this blog — beyond the basic touristy jabber. The last time I came to D.C., I was just a visitor. Now I’m on my way to being a true DCist.
