    Day 1 in the City

    Hello World! Today was my first day in D.C, and I had an exciting first day in the city. One of my roommates and I decided to venture out this afternoon to find the location of the place where she would be interning, and it was quite an experience. We had to use the metro and found it to be a unique experience all on its own. There were several people begging for money that would often try to approach us or others, so we had to be cautious to avoid them for our safety. When we finally made it on the metro, we were super proud of our navigation…

    How to survive midterms:

    It’s that time of year where the air is crisp, and the tears are many. In other words, it’s #cries4days! Just this morning I was sitting outside my classroom right before I took my exam, and instead of studying I was people watching. So many students were running around panicking, and I discovered today’s most popular saying, “‘Did you study? …. ‘No!’… ‘Did you?’… ‘No’”, and I found it interesting how so many people were experiencing the same panic mode. Thus, the question becomes, why do so many college students stress about midterms if they don’t even study? I made my next great discovery right before I took my first…
