Speeches and Commerce


Nice or Naughty? Waiting in the window seat at TWC for stuff to go down.



So, we’re walking down the street and somebody says, “Hey, isn’t that the Whitehouse?” Indeed it was, so for my first time I just found the Whitehouse by wandering D.C.


We look all professional sitting at this huge table at the Chamber of Commerce.


Lunch at the Cornerstone, we recruited a couple of new members for our pay-per-pound daily eating extravaganza.


Day 2: Roomies

Crazy, crazy ladies. I have three roomies, two from Ohio and one from California. We get a long really well, they are hysterical. Today we got up nice and early and headed to the Metro for the 45 minute ride to the Washington Center. Today we did a lot of orientation type stuff…and name games and all that fun stuff you do for orientation. Ate lunch at the Cornerstone Buffet where you buy your food by the pound. I didn’t realize I could just up and eat one and a half pounds of random buffet food. It was tasty. We came back to the hotel which is pretty nice, our room is on the fourteenth floor.


Tonight we had a pool party…my roomies and I were the only ones cool enough to show up. Some people came later but they weren’t even wearing their suits so just sat and talked for a while. Everybody is really nice, it will be a fun trip.

I have my interview with the British Museum. I believe I will be doing survey and observation work, I’m not sure just yet. We have two group sort of projects to get started on all ready and then our own personal list of goals outlined by the pillars of the Washington Center.


Miss you all at home, but man am I having a good time.
