have a sweet weekend.

Today kicks off my first weekend living in Washington, DC (the Capitol is right around the corner from my office - really makes me feel like I'm living in the capital!).  At lunch today, Benevolent Media ("a celebration of storytelling and design for good") kicked off their 2nd annual festival with a panel of video/video related presenters working in the NGO/international development field right here in the WRI office.  I'm looking forward to more presentations like it, which seem to happen often around here.  It was neat to hear from a wide range of people involved in the process and get their insider scoop on video-making and NGO work. 

Tomorrow I'll sign a lease for an apartment (!) and will meet friends - both new and old - for some bon voyage gatherings.  School work at SIT continues so I'll do some readings and try and get ahead for the following week.   

I've been reading more now that I have a commute (and don't yet have a bike to my name).  In between stops on the metro I'm reading Isabel Allende's The Infinite Plan.  I love her work and this book is no exception, if not a bit more intense, than some of her other books I've read. 

How are you celebrating the first official week of summer?  Have any book recommendations?

  1. That's so exciting! What neighborhood are you in? I used to live in Columbia Heights. I love that the city has a bike share system now! You should really try out my favorite restaurants! (http://world-flavor.com/2012/02/17/foodie-friday-my-favorite-dc-eats/)
