Why has blogging suddenly becomes such a complicated thing for me to do?
Hmm... I may have to contemplate that internally a little bit more.
I'm settling in to my new apartment and my new life in Falls Church, VA, as well as my new job. All of my stuff has been moved in, and I'm starting to get it all put away the best that I can. Unfortunately I'm starting from scratch on much of the furniture, so there is a lack of places to put some of the stuff away. I've got several bins of books, gadgets, and supplies that just don't have a home yet. And my poor white walls are so barren! This apartment needs some serious love!
But I love it here so far. I love having my own place again and setting up my own home. I can handle barren walls for a bit while I work and earn money to provide for myself. A lack of artwork won't kill me!
That being said...
I'm looking forward to the weekend. I have plans to just go out and "be me." I have a long list of things I have wanted to do in the DC area for years now. Things I have missed doing since I moved away. For instance, I can't wait to go visit the National Gallery of Art and the Library of Congress. Both are on my list of things to do tomorrow. And I want to have breakfast in Eastern Market! And go to Screen on the Green! And walk around National Harbor at night! And have dinner in Georgetown and Old Town! And just walk around Courthouse and Clarendon because I can. And see a show or two or twenty at Wolf Trap! And today I got it in my head that I want to ride a bike along the C&O Canal. And go golfing. Or at least go hit a bucket of balls at the range. I haven't done that in years!
Yes, I am happy to have a job again and to be earning a paycheck and to be back in a big city with so many options!
