Redistricting



When I took my new job I knew I would miss DC. How could I not? It had become a second home. For the last 6sih years I'd spent almost a night a week there. I knew the good places to stay and my favorite places to eat. I'd made some great friends and knew where to get the good non-Starbucks coffee. I knew what the view from the Speaker's Balcony looked like and what fashionable, yet practical, shoes made the day bearable when walking the halls of Congress. How could I not miss it?

But, if there's one thing I've learned in this life nothing lasts forever and I knew my time working in DC would always be a special season that I would cherish. I hadn't been there since May. It was probably better that I had to quit cold turkey. Best to rip the band aid off quickly. Life wouldn't be the same no matter how much I tried to fit my new circle into an old box I told myself. But I tried. I certainly tried.

Then, little by little, I realized that it would be different and that was ok. I would be ok. I've found that new homeostasis that my friend Kristen had been promising would come. I guess its ironic then that last week, after finally acclimating to my new life, I found myself back in DC. It was so great and I love that it will still be a part of my life.

In the end life will be a blend of the old and the new......a blend of old loves and new crushes. DC, super glad we don't have to break up.
