A few weeks ago I had the chance to visit Arlington Cemetery, Old Town Alexandria and the DC Zoo. That Saturday, I visited Arlington and Old Town Alexandria in Virginia. It was humbling to see the resting places of so many great people such as JFK and various Supreme Court Justices. After walking around Arlington, I headed towards Old Town Alexandria for lunch. I love Old Town, especially King Street because of all of the cute little shops and places to eat. It's a great place to see a historic colonial town if you are visiting DC and are short on time. I also paid a visit to Port City brewery, which by the way, has some delicious beer. On Sunday, I decided to visit the zoo. If you know me, you know I love zoos and will go any chance I get. The DC Zoo is one of my favorites because it is one of the few zoos in the U.S that has pandas and its free! (Yay for broke grad students like me!)
Hey guys, so I know it's been wayyyyy too long since my last post but now that I have some free time I thought I would let you know what I have been up to these last few months.
Right after I got back from Austin, I began to prepare for my big move to Oregon for law school. Everything happened so quickly- the packing, the moving and even starting school. I was so busy, I never got a chance to write about any of it . Who would've thought law school would be so time consuming ;) On another note, I am happy to report that I survived my first semester of law school (barely) and am 1/6 a lawyer!
My last few days in Nashville consisted of wandering around the city and just seeing where the day would take me. Between the famous Sweet Potato Pancakes at Pancake Pantry (I'm still dreaming of them),the Parthenon, the talented upcoming musicians at the Blue Bird Cafe and the local craftbeer, I was not disappointed in what I found. I also paid a visit to the Nashville Zoo, because A) I love zoos and B) they have the largest exhibit of anteaters in the nation (my college mascot). Unfortunately, the zoo decided to take the anteaters off exhibit to breed them and they put up a kangaroo exhibit in their place. Luckily, it was the coolest kangaroo exhibit I'd ever seen so I wasn't too upset. And of course, what Nashville vacation would be complete without listening to music and dancing the night away on Broadway?!
