How I Met Your Mother
My great grandmother passed away last Sundayv (she’s the eldest woman in the photos – mother of my mother’s father). The subject is a quote from the Buddha.
“Before, this city was like a geeky kid sister, and now it’s getting noticed by all the older boys. We’ve got curves now.” [Helena Andrews, one of BLTWY’s 35 under 35 who is changing Washington D.C.]
2011 means a lot to me as a soon-to-be college graduate. So I, more than some, hope 2011 shapes out to be one of my best years yet. I might still consider myself the geeky kid sister (despite being an older sister), but by the middle of the year, I hope to be sitting in or around D.C., making a life for my twenty-something self.
Moving to blogspot. With my changing format, I feel like changing servers is due. It’s been fun. I’m keeping the name.
I signed up for a bloglovin account, but I don’t know if I’ll use it regularly. I might use it for the “socializing” aspect, but google reader is easier for me for blog browsing.
I think it’s probably obvious I’m not the greatest blogger, however I am trying to up the ante from now on. I’ve also decided I’m not going to continue outfit posts.
I am back in the United States and very grateful. There are a few things I miss, of course, but there hasn’t been any trouble or culture shock coming home. I did enjoy my first drive around town [lots of shopping involved, let me tell you]. Driving was completely normal to me, but I might have felt a little more exuberance and gratefulness to be able to just go somewhere without it being an event.
One thing I’m getting used to is how late the sun sets now! In Vietnam, it would be completely dark by 6:30 every night, but here, now, it isn’t completely dark until 10:30 or so. Crazy! I keep thinking it’s a lot earlier than it actually is. I leave you with a picture outside my window around 7:30 a couple nights ago.
PS: I’ve been using google reader for my blog readings, but I’ve been considering the switch to bloglovin. Any comments?
