Have you ever read something that felt like it was staring right into your soul and saying, "You thought you could hide, there? HA." That is the feeling I got while reading "Everything That Rises Must Converge" after dinner this evening.

I got the job that I wanted. It pays pretty well for entry level and it's in downtown DC. I start on Monday, so I'm pretty excited about that.

I finished turning all the dirt in the garden. I can't decide if I want to just fence it all in or go ahead and make some raised beds. I've got seeds for tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and pumpkins.

It's not that big of a garden, so I don't know what I was thinking.

From the Present

Less than two months ago I got accepted the the University of Maryland's College of Library and Information Science. I moved to Maryland two weeks ago. I have an apartment now; a room in the basement of a house that is about two minutes' walk away from the Metro. I made a list about 6 or so years ago of the cities I would like to live in, should big city living become necessary. Washington, D.C. was for sure in the top five. So here I am.

So far I've seen my first women's professional basketball game and a purse-snatching.

I've had a few job interviews so far and one position looks really promising. I've been looking for a church to go to, but haven't attended one yet. I start classes at the end of August.

There is a small garden in the backyard that is overrun with weeds. I did some raking and I turned the dirt on one side of it. I don't know what can grow there, but I am excited to find out.
