I arrived in August 2011 and it took a good half year before I really started to enjoy DC. I've now made a group of genuine friends now and I'm enjoying working and playing in the city.
My purpose in being here has changed with time, but I think that my plans are evolving for the better. While I'm working on rebuilding from the ground up, I'm focusing on having fun, working hard, and indulging my desire to explore.
Not to sound too much like that Jim Carrey movie, but I try to say yes to all the suggestions thrown my way. I believe that the most important question to ask is, "Why not?" There is usually not a reason.
Co-pilots welcome :)
