Mark your Calendars: April
I feel like this is the first Spring/Summer in a long time that I’m free to fully enjoy the weekends. For the last two and a half years I’ve been working on my Master’s Degree at night while working full-time. After I graduated last August, I spent several weekends in the fall preparing for the Foreign Service Written Exam (and a few weekends researching my husband’s bid list). Then came the holidays. And then I spent several weekends in February and March prepping for the Foreign Service Oral Assessment. With that out of the way, my weekends are a bit more open. Of course, now we have to start preparing for our move to Nicaragua – a task that has now been complicated by the fact that I may or may not be called back to DC for an A-100 class myself. But in the meantime, we can enjoy DC. Here are a few events coming up this month that I’m excited about:
- DC International Film Festival, April 15 – 25
- DC Spa week, April 12-18
- Potomac Bonsai Festival at the Arboretum, April 30 – May 2 (check out these two amazing photos)
- Season Premier of GLEE: April 13
And….if I can get a friend to come along…. I want to be a part of this Flash Mob on April 15. Come on, who’s up for learning some dance moves with me?
