I thought I was supposed to be getting away from the heat in Louisiana by coming to D.C. I obviously was wrong, I have now added “cool weather” to my prayers during these first few days out here.
Besides the weather, I never want to leave.
I love how busy D.C. moves and how everyone looks like they’re in a rush (even at 6 pm at night). There can truly be a new adventure every day, if you choose to explore. This is much different from the small town I’m from. All Lake Charles has is casinos and good food.
There is so much culture and history in Washington and I am thoroughly enjoying learning about it.
I never thought I would say or think this but I actually enjoy going to class. This is mostly because of the speakers, they’re some pretty cool people who just happen to have some dope jobs relating to media and politics. I may be a little biased but I truly believe media and politics really is the best intersection.
It’s now clear to me after this first week, you don’t have to be an elected official to be successful in the nation’s capital.
I have been self reflecting on my path in Mass Communication and my journey after undergrad. I know this month here in D.C. will definitely help and give me an idea of what I want to do.
I am look forwarding and optimistic of what’s to come these next few weeks.
