Not completely true – I hitched a ride with my friend Carin and her family, who are also spending the long weekend in Washington, DC. They were kind enough to allow me to take up space in their car, play with their dogs, and drink their seltzer water.
But for the first time, I am solely responsible for making travel plans to a destination so far from home (or, campus, I suppose). I have budgeted money, booked a bus home and am so excited to spend the next three days in the city!
(Also to clarify – I’m staying with a friend at American University. Not sleeping on a bench somewhere and wandering around the city aimlessly..)
