What I've Discovered in the Last 2 Months

1. I occasionally have trouble motivating myself. I thought about forcing myself to write TV-show reviews in order to instill some consistency to this blog -- what's something that is fascinating yet terrible, trying to be serious yet easy to make fun of, and generally wants to make me run out in traffic? Of course, The Bachelor. But whelp, no fewer than four of my friends already write reviews. (They're hilarious, read here, here, here, and here. Yes, I consider Time Magazine a friend.)

2. Apparently, I currently live in a land of fantastical realities: even though half a million people live here, DC has no congressional representation; some people hate their job and yet pull 12-hr days; and the weather swings drunkenly from high 20's to low 70's in the course of 2 days.

3. The DMV area closes schools 2 hours early because there *might* be .5 to 2 inches of snow.

4. The DC/Maryland/Virginia area is sometimes called the DMV area. And saying it makes me feel like a boss.

5. Not going home for Christmas, to put it eloquently, really really sucks.

6. ...But an empty house, a crackling fire, a bag of BBQ chips, rye whiskey (my newest obsession), and bad Netflix Christmas movies can cure just about any bad day.

7. Hey, Inauguration is pretty cool. And intense. Cops and people, cops and people everywhere. Throw in some spicy and unsolicited political opinions, a bit of Barack's speech, a dash of Beyonce's pre-recorded voice, and one of FLOTUS Michelle's purple gloves, stir vigorously, and you've got yourself an official Experience.

The Sis' and my view from a ticketed area,
(cuz we got connections, yo)
in the furthest away of the ticketed areas
(so our "connections" weren't that great, whatever.)
8. I'm sure I've discovered a lot more, but I've also learned that on warm rainy nights I would rather curl up next to an open window, listen to the steady beat of rain on the sidewalk, and sink into a good book. Can you believe I've never read To Kill A Mockingbird? (My high school failed me. And I make a terrible college English major. Oops.)
