Landing

I left a soggy Toronto yesterday afternoon and arrived in a very humid Washington, DC! One cab ride and four bags later, I was in my new home at Georgetown Law.

First, a confirmation: Yes, everyone here feels very young to me. But, unsurprisingly, many of them are also interesting people who came here for reasons similar to my own. I’m going to try my very best not to think about age quite so much, and instead to focus on what matters here. Which is LSAT score.

Though I’m far from settled in, my bedroom in the residence is beginning to feel like home: family photos, gifts from friends, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, my Jeopardy! calendar, and Curious George all make this feel like my very own space. But it has a long way to go.

To that end, today will be all about trying to find my footing here in DC. My room-mate and I are planning to stock up on household supplies (oh, and food!) later this morning, and I’m really hoping to start getting a feel for the neighbourhood. If I can get all my ducks in a row, I’d also like to hit the gym later today. The sooner I get into a routine, the better!

My stomach adds: the sooner I eat something that wasn’t given to me in the residence welcome package, the better! There are lots of little treats in there, but nothing resembling food, per se. Time to go hunting!
