The joys of packing…

The joys of packing…

…Not reaaaaaaaaallllly. You think the amount of times I’ve done it before, I should be used to it by now. Ummm nope, not quite. This time is different. Why, you ask? Because I will be traveling to Washington, DC for 10 weeks. 10 WEEKS!! How am I going to put my life (aka clothes) into one suitcase and a box for ten weeks and not feel like I’ve left anything behind? If it was the summer, I would have been done packing by now, but because it’s winter and wayyy colder in DC than it is in sunny California, this is proving to be quite a challenge. Winter clothes – coats in particular are heavy, and bulky and just ugh, not suitcase friendly. Not to mention boots as well, and unfortunately, I can only wear one pair on the flight.

It’s times like this that I wish I could just teleport (my room) there and be done with it…put no thought into it!! One can dream. So, instead of packing, I am¬†conveniently¬†blogging about it. Definitely not solving my problems.

Why am I moving to DC for 10 weeks? Well, because I got an internship, silly. Why else?!
I am extremely excited at the prospect of moving to DC and interning at a non-profit.

The first time I visited DC was last summer, and I fell in love with it. I love, love, love big cities just because I was raised in one, and I’m used to the lifestyle. I enjoy the quicker pace of life, and if I’m not busy all the time doing something, quite frankly I get bored and rather depressed. Being able to get on the metro and go wherever is something I am most looking forward to. There’s so much to do in DC, I don’t think I am ever going to get bored – museums, events, markets, shopping. Oh, and the internship is going to keep me pretty busy. I look forward to the challenge.

I should really get back to packing and cleaning up the mess that is also called my room!
