discovered some good running spots here in this city. dc is usually known for it’s monuments but guys… its murals deserve an honorable mention at least.Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

every time i pass the supreme court i feel small. i think that’s the effect they were going for.  Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

cheesy love in bloomingdale. wouldn’t have it any other way. (unless these are my tax dollars at work, in which case i say there is not enough glitter)Processed with VSCOcam with b5 preset

the only way to study for an impossible exam is to add a plethora of bread and spreads to the equation at le pain quitodienProcessed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

keeping vigilance over my bike. isn’t she a beaut?Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

big bear cafe is becoming my spot. do i order anything? nope never. do i unabashedly bask in their indie cool environment where every attendant is reading a vintage paperback, wearing a beanie and flannel, and pouring tea from a kettle that came straight from the west indies (or world market, same difference)? yep. yep. yep. (do i also feel real self conscious in my uggs? always)

running on u street is a complete pain because you’ve got to dodge a lot of folks, yet i always find myself here. i also always wonder what TRUE REFORMER BUILDING actually means.

taking my roommate out to lunch after she saved me from losing my wallet twice in three months. cava mezze grill is spicy and wonderful and the perfect way to counteract a pretty crappy day working at a psych hospital.

also, i promise i do other things rather than eat …?Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

walk to work through capitol hill on our SNOW DAY!  Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

my favorite part of the city; logan circle. it is so underrated. let’s keep it that way. also, this is post-haircut selfie time, where i am in limbo between shock and mania/euphoria. Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

on saturday there was a snow-mergency and it was so funny. the streets were clear! i had anthropologie all to myself! everything closed early! i wore my invincible snow boots. Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

pretty buildings on every corner of downtown. Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

the national geographic museum had an exhibit featuring food, so of course i went. this was the best photo. this is what my spirit looks like.

if i was given an indispensable amount of time and an indispensable amount of dollars i would probably spend it thrifting and rifling through old adorable photos and postcards. taken right after i said something or did something that eliza probably deemed, “inappropriate”.  Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

snow-mergency peaceful sidewalks. (or not so peaceful. get outside and shovel your walk! imma bout to fall and break a hip!)Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

i got crafty this weekend instead of studying benzodiazepines and serotonin reuptake inhibitors.

my mantra for now and forever.

last week i got a free week subscription to blue apron from my friend who is a religious subscriber…. which was great and i loved. ingredients for delicious meals sent directly to your door! i’m all about it! this ramen was supposed to serve two, but when i got to my friend’s house and realized we actually needed to feed 6, a miracle happened. a true loaves and fishes situation!

on sunday i didn’t have to work so we went to anacostia and fed homeless women and watched the oscars. i figured if i was going to waste at least four hours of my life watching pointless nothing, i might as well do some service beforehand to make myself feel better.

also, i’m mad birdman beat out boyhood, but i guess that is now just water under the bridge.

that’s all folks! here’s to spring’s quick approach and more green grass replacing bleak grey skies.
