Back to the grind...

I'm home from D.C (and more then a little exhausted) but it was a fun trip and definitely worth it. I bonded a bit with some of my classmates and teachers, too, (read: went out drinking with teachers!) and as a result just feel better about the school in general. I'm feeling a little less judged in class and a little more outgoing. A pretty positive thing.

I spent WAY too much money in Sephora (we don't have any here! I had to!), way too LITTLE money on food (I packed enough food that I had some left over, but I did stop for lunch on the way back to CT) and way too much time in the Holocaust museum (It's four floors-- I spent the ENTIRE allotted 5 hours there.)

We did a nighttime trip to all the major monuments (pictures forthcoming), but unfortunately I didn't get to eat at the Java Green Cafe or visit The Smithsonian wing that I wanted to (it was closed for renovations, because the world is decidedly against me). So, I'll have to go back sometime.

Oh, and I also managed to get rid of a clingy crazy granny who was in our hotel room. But that's a story for a different day...

But I leave you with a question of ethics and morals: Is it wrong to stretch out in a hotel bed and leave a crazy 80 year old to sleep in a hotel room chair?

...because it sure didn't feel wrong.
