What an incredible experience I had this semester in Washington. I truly feel like I learned more about myself. I have become a more confident and happy person. I feel more prepared for life after graduation, and I actually look forward to working in an office some day.
While the program I was in certainly lacked luster, the people I met truly made my experience. Whether it was my friends from seminar, my American University Queer & Allies family or my intern friends, I met so many wonderful people. While I look forward to being reunited with my Wooster family, these people will always have a special place in my heart. Without them, I wouldn't have had the semester I had; I would not have become the more confident and able woman I am now.

My seminar class at our Professor's house for the end of the semester celebration
I cried for the entirety of my last three days in the city. They were happy tears about so many things, ranging from how blessed I am to have worked on Meet the Press to the fact that I finally came to love and accept myself regardless of sexuality. I just can't express enough how genuinely happy I am after this semester of hard work and self discovery.
History of the LGBT Class, I didn't talk about it much on this blog but it was easily one of the best parts of my semester!
Myself with three of my favorite people in world. Interning with these three was the best.
I am so ready to go back to wooster and jump back into academia for the next year and a half (YIKES.) But I will never forget the fall semester I spent in D.C. and I certainly would not be the person I am without it.

So this is good-bye for now! Thank you to my friends and family for reading my blog and keeping up with my adventures!
