Okay so here’s the thing I go to DC every now and then because it’s literally an hour from where I go to school and sometimes it’s kind of like, why not? Well today we were supposed to go to Annapolis but we changed our minds and decided to wander around aimlessly in DC.
Today there are only a few pictures, more so from not so touristy places because those pictures get boring really fast. So enjoy some more pictures of like historic and like scenery (I know scenic is the right word to use, I just don’t want to use it) pictures.
Okay so this is the same street. I have this weird obsession with city streets lined with trees. It’s kind of like how I feel about sailboats.
This is a sign for Logan Square, Logan was with me (as was Eric) so I had to take a picture of this sign of course.
I really liked this house. Afer looking at it a bit closer when walking by, I think it’s like a double house. I don’t know though. Probably very expensive, but very cool. I would live there.
Here is some more tree lined thingsssss. This is a side walk that’s treelined.
DC is way more than the museums and really cool government buildings. There are other things more than the touristy everyday things that you see every time you go. A lot of exploring and adventuring can be done outside of the everyday things. What’s your favorite thing to do in DC?
Yesterday I went to visit my friend Jade in DC. Getting there is always an adventure since I drive to the metro station,and then I had to transfer to go and meet her but I didn’t get lost at all! I would like to apologize because this is going to be a picture heavy post and I’m shying away from the way I typically post pictures (the square gallery thing) because I don’t want to do it that way. Also, a video should be posted tomorrow or Monday too!
This is the steepest escalator I have ever ridden.
Fun fact about me, I’m obsessed with towers on buildings. I just imagine sitting on a window seat reading a book whenever I see them.
We went to Nandos for lunch! Per usual I forgot to take a picture of my food before I started.
DC has some of the most amazing architecture in my opinion. I just find buildings very interesting.
Selfies in front of the White House. Well the back of the White House.
I’m pretty sure these are the only pictures of me without my glasses. My sunglasses are prescription so I hate switching between the two.
Everyone needs a picture of the Washington Monument and the Metro.
I’m not sure where my next adventure will be, but this little one was fun. It’s also nice to see people from home even when you’re away.
So I wanted to something to conclude the year, which I already wrote but it got deleted, so I’m currently crying. Anywho this post may be rather shitty compared to the first one where I went month by month and I think I’m just going to an overview because I’m tired and I want to edit a video before I go to bed too. I’m going to try and tell the story of my year through pictures with captions, wish me luck!
One of the major things of my year are unable to be pictured and that would be this blog. I am so glad that I started this blog, and I’m so thankful for all of you who read this. I would also like to give a special thanks to The College Misfit, and whether she knows it or not, if it wasn’t for her I don’t know if I would’ve kept up with the blog, she really inspired me. I really hope the new year brings good changes for her, she deserves it. So through the ups and downs of 2013, the downs aren’t really pictured, but trust me they were there, I can only hope that 2014 will bring great things and the guidance of what to do with my life. Once again I’d like to thank all of you followers who read every day/week/month, I never would have imagined having almost 60 followers in less than four months, so thank you so much. Enjoy the story of my year!
So guys I am super excited because at this very moment my first Pretty Places vlog is in the converting process! It should be posted very shortly! I don’t think I can even begin to express how excited I am for this! I hope you guys are at least looking forward to it a little bit, the editing and just a lot of things weren’t working out but I finally got everything to work!
So about two weeks ago my friend Katie came down to Maryland to visit me at school for the weekend. We had all day Saturday to do something fun so we decided to take an adventure into Washington DC. We drove to the nearest metro station and took that into the city. As many people know, our country has a lot of problems. This was also right after the government shut down, however with all of these problems we still manage to have an amazing capital city. We went to the holocaust museum, the natural history museum, and Nandos. It was really just awesome to get away for the day with one of my best friends.
Thanks again for reading, and I hope you enjoy the video :)
I don’t know what you guys think, but the US capital is one of the prettiest places in the country. DC may be a dirty city in some places, but the National Mall is something that holds beauty. This past weekend my friend Katie and I traveled to DC for a day trip. My school is not far, so we decided to take a metro. We explored places such as the Holocaust Museum, the Natural History Museum and what seemed to be a business type area where we got Nandos for lunch. It was really nice to get off campus for the day and see some of the beauty that is within the walls of our own country. Here’s my volg of our day filled with some Complete Average Adventures :)
Okay so I’m posting this before the video is up, but I’m going to do another little post with the video in it as well. I hope you guys enjoy it!
Feel free to follow me on twitter for some more of my daily adventures! This may also give you a heads up to when I will be out and about and maybe doing some vlogging! I am really looking forward to what the future is holding in this aspect and I hope you guys are too! Thanks for reading and watching, love you all!
