first post in a while!

I haven't posted here in a while, but that's OK...

I'm moving to Alexandria, Virginia in about a week. I'm very excited and nervous all at the same time. I'm excited that I will be living with Dan in a new city, but I'm nervous that I will be 500 miles away from everyone and everything I know. I'm sure it will be an adventure. I bet I'll get lost a few times and I'm nervous about that. As for friends, I'm sure I'll eventually make some, I have Dan and one girl I know from college named Alexis. We weren't very close, but we were friendly, had the same major. I've talked to her and we're going to hang out.

We've got a 2 bedroom apartment, so I'd really love visitors. I love taking people to do the touristy things, and they are also educational things in DC. I've never actually been inside the White House, so that is something I'd like to do.

It's almost the end of the day at my first job. Today was presents day, although I didn't know it was going to be. I had no presents for anyone, but people brought in tons of stuff. I feel sort of guilty, so I'm going to give things on my last day (the 30th) since I don't have time to shop tonight. Let's see...I got 2 $25 gift certificates to the Cheesecake Factory, 1 certificate to AMC movie theaters, 2 bottles of wine, a tin of gourmet hot chocolate, and a $50.00 check from one of the brokers. There was also loads of candy and sweets given to us as a department.

Now I have to go work at Bloomingdale's until 11!!!
