and then i moved to dc.

December 27, 2012


bright and early on the saturday morning after thanksgiving i moved to dc. nonchalant, just like that. i just drove off into (away from?) the missouri sunset. i spent the next 14 hours experiencing a roller coaster emotions/thoughts/music. you get the picture.

i moved to dc without a place to live… which brought up some serious questioning of whether or not this whole thing was a good idea or not on said 14 hour drive. i also moved here with a temporary job (so far, so good).

but mostly – it’s been terrific.



i spent two and a half weeks with my friend theresa who kindly put up with my ridiculous house search. she also fed me and helped me figure out the bus system — mostly i will be indebted to her and her husband for at least 5 to 7 years.

lets talk about how christmasy this city is! trees and wreaths and lights everywhere. i, love it.


when i decided to move to dc (which was mostly just a thought that ended when i arrived at 10p on the saturday after thanksgiving) i had three stipulations. i wanted public transportation. i wanted to be able to walk to work if i chose. and i wanted to be able to get ethnic food at three in the morning. (priorities people!).

done and done. and much more to come.

a thought on house hunting. i looked at 5 rooms, i was offered 4, i said ‘yes’ to 3 and then had to say no to 2 and landed on 1. so if you want any tips…. i’m clearly an expert.

apt1house i almost live in #1 (with a huffpost blogger no less!)

apt2THE big city apartment of my dreams. high ceiling, hardwood floors and a fire escape outside the window. i really thought this was the one….
