me w/ my luggage at BWI
In a way, 1 way tickets say a lot about a person. You can come to one of three conclusions about a person who has a 1 way ticket.
1. He/She isn't very organized and doesn't know when their trip should end.
2. He/She is passionate about the trip and doesn't want to create a deadline for their holiday.
3. They're moving.
Well my 1 way ticket is a combination of all three. I'm passionate about my move to Washington DC, and don't want to slam a deadline on my move there, and I'm not quite sure when my internship ends.
So, here I am, sitting on the couch of my new home for the next 4 months, with no return ticket. I don't mind at all! My roomies are awesome, the house is nice, and our apartment is EXTRA sunny with a view of Stanton Park, and I have an awesome internship starting soon!
My cooking skills are going to improve immensely over this semester. Already, I'm trying out new recipes, making my own up, and getting comfortable with grocery shopping on my own :) I have a pot of hot chocolate on the stove right now!
The flight coming up to DC was great: not too long, not too short, quiet, fairly smooth, and I was able to read the entire time! (huzzah to Alice in Wonderland) We got into Baltimore around 3:30, and got to our hotel around 5, just in time to freshen up and go eat! There was this AWESOME restaurant down the street from our hotel called Georgia Brown's, which specialized in Southern Cuisine. Oh wow I'd never stuffed myself like that in my life! Fried Green Tomatoes, Carolina Gumbo, Virginia Peanut Chicken, MmmmMM!!! :)
I think that Union Station is going to be one of my favorite places EVER! :) The building is BEAUTIFUL, with lots of stores and restaurants inside. There's an AMTRAK station so that I can visit my family and friends near by, and it's only a 5 minute walk from my house! w00t!

So that's what's up in a nutshell! :)
