This may be a little redundant for those of you who follow me on Twitter or are friends with me on Facebook, but I thought a neat way to really get this blog off the ground would be to share the pictures I’ve taken, the memories I’ve captured of my DC journey so far.
I should start off by saying that I meant to start this blog much sooner–my original intention was to begin the day after I arrived a few weeks back. But to be honest, I was so wrapped up in the moments, that quicker methods, like Facebook and perhaps especially Twitter, dominated. The path of least resistance, I suppose, lol I meant to have dozens of posts by this point!
So I thought a good way to essentially play catch-up would be to post some of the pictorial highlights of my journey so far, with some anecdotes to describe/explain. From this point on, I will do my best to document each event and milestone in as quick an order as possible–I owe that to my readers and to myself as—you (fellow) writers out there will relate, I am sure–it’s really frustrating to have so many ideas in your head and so many plans for them, but not to get them out on paper or in this case, on the screen!
Anyway, enough about my writing process—on with the pics!:
The Newseum was awesome! My experience there–the weekend before last–deserves a post all it’s own (which I will try to do soon..), but here is a picture of an actual piece of the Berlin Wall that is on display there. Passes are good for two consecutive visits–so going back again before I leave!
Portraits in the office hallway–again–perfect!
OFA Training Weekend (September 10 and 11)- Materials!
Obama tote bag I got for my birthday and brought with me–fitting!
Senator Kerry at the First Super Committee Hearing-September 8, 2011
Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis at DNC Breakfast–we (my fellow interns and I) got to briefly meet her afterward. She is so nice, very down to earth!
..And that’s just the beginning! Stay tuned. 😉
