Washington D.C.: 5/14/15

Ending Finals with a Bang

Right as finals week came to a halt, I set for my second adventure. The day after finals I set forth to the airport, with a book in my hand (of course) and my backpack for the ride (who knew I could pack for 4 days in my backpack? – I’ll give you guys some packing tips later). What book you ask?

Happiness Project
A Must Read

The Happiness Project. It’s a great, easy read on how to make your life easier, happier and less stressful. I have yet to finish it however.

The Weekend

As the plane landed, I was extremely excited to have arrived in a new city, away from school, stress and the busy life. The weekend consisted of escapes to the usual touristy places of course. The Lincoln Memorial (Yes, he is a lot taller in person). The Washington Monument, the World War II Memorial, and the White House (which I didn’t get to take a picture of :/)

It was truly amazing to see history right in front of you at the National Mall. The day didn’t end there, however. Afterwards, my friend and I went to go get drinks before my first ever basketball game. I mean… I would’ve liked my first game to be the Mavericks, but I guess the Washington Wizards will do.The game was amazing! I didn’t think I could get into basketball that much, even when it’s not my home town team (#AMaverickAtHeart).

Georgetown and more…

Mind you, that was all day one. However I won’t bore you with the details, but I will tell you the places everyone must go to while in DC. Of course, check out the National Mall (Memorials etc). Also, check out Georgetown! I felt like that city was somewhere from my dreams. It’s beautiful, historic, and just plain… breathtaking.

My weekend was full of tourist adventures, but I also went on a little nature trail.

It was nice ending my weekend relaxed and walking along, reflecting, thinking and just taking in all the wonderful precious moments life offers us.
