Weeks 10 & 11
November 7 - November 25, 2016
Here we are! It’s the FINAL COUNTDOWN. I leave DC on Friday to ship back up to Boston (I HAD TO) and I am so pumped.
Here’s a list of 12 swiggity swag things I did within the last two weeks: (not chronologically, you stalkers)
My parents and I checked out the revamped Watergate after having brunch at Kingbird. And guess what, guys, there’s poutine on the menu ;)
I finally went to Nellie’s with my coworker Bryan (“hate u love u” is playing in the background) and got him to buy me a drank. Score.
The BRAVO! team went on a site visit to the Hamilton Crowne Plaza and met with Brian the Associate Director of Sales who showed us the property. What a gr8 hotel!
I found my new favorite museum: The Hirshhorn and saw my favorite exhibit of all time: Ragnar Kjartansson with one of my favorite people of all time: Katrina.
I picked out Christmas gifts for 13 children that BRAVO! is sponsoring this Holiday Season. AND I got to assemble two bikes!
The Perry-Lewis clan meandered around the Hill, saw the sights (no RBG tho L), and ate some snacks at Radici (one of my fave SE spots).
I voted and didn’t get what I wanted.
Katrina (my Thanksgiving visitor) and I went to EVERY SINGLE MONUMENT and EVERY SINGLE MEMORIAL because we are THE BEST TOURISTS TO EVER EXIST.
I met up with my cousin, Erin, and had the best ramen *pictured above* I have ever had in my life at Sakuramen in Adams Morgan. Dear lord, god bless. If any of you have the opportunity to go ever in your lives, plz, go.
I gave a pretty great presentation (if I do say so myself) in my Thursday evening class, The Death Penalty, on death-qualified juror bias. Hmu w q’s and I’ll give you a’s!
Katrina stalked dogs all over the city and I tried to make it seem less creepy. *hardcore second hand embarrassment*
I realized that I do actually like DC. You got me.
Check out my next blog post later in the week about my final days in DC! I’ll show you what makes a type A gal like me tick.
