So, just the facts, ma’am. New location: Washington, DC. New job: at an international non-profit. New home: moved into an apartment with college girlfriends when my college roommate moved out into her own place. New favorite bookstore: unknown. If you know of any super places in the DC metro area, help me out!
Silly anecdote: on the first day of my new job, the lights in my office went out. Good news, though. I have a window, and we were fine on light until around 5pm. Also good news? I have a Greek co-worker (his voice…!). Like, wow. I got laughs out of my roommates with my meager impression skillz. But he really does have a hot accent. Oh, and yeah? I cleaned the coffeemaker. Nice.
Second day of my new job (today): lights get fixed. I make many trips to the dumpster and start organizing the heck out of my desk. The lights go OUT. Greek co-worker with delicious voice offers to make coffee. I say ‘yes, please!’ It's a shame he’s leaving in two weeks…
In honor of all this craziness (new job! new town! new home!), I’d like to hold a contest. For…NEW BOOKS! Of your choice. Yep, $25 to The Book Depository.
