Hello from DC! So I have been living in DC for about 2 weeks now and things are going really well so far. I like my job a lot. I am on three different cases right now which is nice because when I get sick of working on one thing, I can just stop for a while and work on something a little different. So the work I am doing varies, but sometimes I am doing market research, or reading depositions, or I am putting together spreadsheets for the attorneys to use in court. Hey, do you guys remember when I was practicing for my interviews and I would always be trying to answer off-the-wall questions like “How many cars are there in China”? Well, the other day at work my manager asked me to figure out how many operating rooms there are in America. I felt very vindicated that all that senseless questioning actually came in handy.
Right now I am the only new analyst at the office. Eight others were hired but they aren’t starting til later in the summer. I’m glad I got an early start though because I’m learning things a lot faster than I otherwise would if there were a whole bunch of new people starting at the same time. I really like the people at my office as well. Everyone is really friendly and the office is pretty laid back. We even have a company softball team (our first game is today). So basically work is good and I really like what I’m doing.
The apartment that I’m living in is nice, but the lease runs out in 6 weeks so I have been keeping an eye out for a new place. I would like to find a house in Crystal City that I could play loud music in. I like my ward so far. Even though I don’t really know that many people yet I have met a few people I know. Jane Wilson (from Freshman year, Blair’s cousin) is in my ward. I went outdoor rock climbing this weekend with some guys and I will probably start going more often.
One thing that is awesome about DC is that pretty much any band that is touring comes through here. I am going to see Wilco on Thursday. Then in July its Counting Crows, Live, and Collective Soul. Then in August I am going to see Muse. So the Music scene is awesome out here, it’s just too bad that I really don’t have people to go with yet.
Anyway, this has got to be a record for the longest post ever on this blog. Hope all you guys are doing well.
