raindrops fallin on my head.

last weekend i met up with my friend brittny who had been studying abroad for the year. She's living in alexandria, so we met up near georgetown. Yesterday, I was headed down to the Smithsonian to meet a friend, and who do I run into in the metro? Brittny. THEN tonight, my bro and I were out to dinner in bethesda, and i run into her again! Goes to show...small world outside of C-town.

Went for a jog last night. Literally, 2 minutes in and it starts pouring. It was amazing. I ran for a solid 45 minutes until the storm ended. By the time I got home, I was sopping. Today I hopped on the C and O canal toe path and headed up to Great Falls. It was beautiful! Took a little longer than I expected though...

Tomorrow it's back to work!

Been a while...

So it's been a while since I last bad. This summer has gone so quick- Work at NIH is the usual, living with the boys has been solid, and being 21- even better. Although, I've managed to "misplace" my license for the second time now...

Anyway, since i last wrote- I went out to Denver to see one of my best friends. First day out there, we hit altitude head on. I climbed a mountain. It was amazing, beautiful, and exhausting. I was a bit arrogant to think that because i run everyday, my lungs would somehow be pro at handling thin air. Wrong! Every 10 steps I was out of breath, which made getting to the top even better (minus the headache). That night we went to Redrocks, and saw Carbonleaf in concert. They were amazing, and it was great because the first song was about VA, where they are from and where my bro went to school...I felt right at home.

Some line dancing, late night diners, and many laughs later I came back home to celebrate the fourth of July, DC style. We went over to my friend who lives in Georgetown. Her balcony had an amazing view of the monument and the mall- it was awesome. Afterwards we hit some parties and went out for a while, good times all around.

3 more weeks left of my internship, and then it's back to WAC. I'm pumped for this year, it's gonna be a blast!
