Wow! I just saw the date of almost 2 months ago! Well...I will update slowly b/c it has been an active 2 months here in the city. I have started my job at Roll Call Newspaper. I didn't realize what I was getting into when I signed up for the job. It was a HUGE culture shock coming from OC to DC, especially in the work force. Needless to say, it's been an exciting ride. Yesterday morning I ran a 3 mile challenge with some co-workers for some Capitol Hill race. There were senators, congressmen, media gurus, and so much more participating in this event. I talked to several, but have no idea who they are. I ran along side our gossip columnist, loved and hated by everyone in the political world. As we ran in they announced her name, therefore I had to suck in my gut to look good going across the line. Needless to say, I finished with a key chain, t shirt, and an ear full of local gossip of some well known people I have never heard of. I think the worst part was we were beat by an 80 year old man who had a planters wart that felt like a marble on his toe. YEEEEAH! However, I finished, and I did it in exactly a 10 minute mile. Therefore, I have nothing to whine about. Tonight starts the office softball league. I'm sure there will be more stories to come.
