DC, moving

The beginning: a recap.

When my feet hurt like hell, it usually means it was a good day.

– Ballroom dance practice
– Graduation day (my beautiful shoes just weren’t broken in enough)
– Wandering around and whining in New York because I had blisters from wandering around DC the night before

So why do my feet hurt like hell today?

The end of an era.

Originally written on Sunday (thus explaining the intro), but I didn’t have the house photo, so it got posted late!

7 days until graduation.

11 days until I move out of my house in Reno and head to Vegas.

17 days until I fly across the country to DC.

I still have so much to finish, but once it’s done, it’s done. I have to start packing this weekend. It hasn’t quite hit me yet.

P.S. I received the top new media/online student award from the j-school. It’s nice to know they think I have a future 🙂
