I lived in DC for six years and, after a year in Australia, I’m happy to be back. I love this city and look forward to helping you discover why it’s so great.

    I’m an incoming freshman at a DC school next year and (having nothing better to do) read through all your posts. Let me say, I’m now really freaking excited about living in the district for the next four years! I’ll be following this blog for sure, so keep the posts coming!

    I’ve lived here for 7 years (four in college at UMD) and now three as professional in the city, but I still love your blog and learning all about the fun stuff in DC I’ve ever tried.

    I’m starting an internship for a few weeks in DC this summer & I was very excited to find your blog! Since I will be there for a short period of time I am determined to make the most of it while I’m there. It gave me some great ideas of things to do besides just the typical DC museums & monuments, which I have done a few times before. Thanks!

    I’m moving to D.C. in a year for grad school. I love your blog! I’m looking for an apartment in a quiet area with easy metro access (no car), do you have any recommendations?
