Like I said in my last post, I love Washington D.C. I think it is one of the most amazing cities in the world. When I was looking for cities to spend my summer in, D.C. was easily my first choice. Although I am not doing something in politics like I had originally planned, I am enjoying my internship and, more so, enjoying my time in D.C.
I have now been living in D.C. for roughly six months. I like to think I have a good feel for the city, where things are, and how things work. One of my favorite things about my internship this summer is that it is in a city where so many Michigan people come to. I have a good amount of friends who have also decided to spend their summer in D.C., and I really enjoy showing them around.
Seeing my friends react to the city for the first time takes me back to January when I was new to the city myself. Beyond loving D.C., I have come to realize that something that makes it such a great place is the kind of people it attracts. A city is only as fun as the people you’re surrounded by. And between friends from Michigan and friends I’ve met through my internship, I have loved seeing D.C. through new eyes.
