Last Saturday, after spending the day getting slightly sunburned at embassies, I brought a crowd of people back to my house bearing BBQ vittles. My DC buddies, the United Friends also showed up and we enjoyed an evening of darts, tasty margaritas, food and fun.
As the evening wound into the night, everyone was getting along swimmingly, and I realized that I had really really good friends from my past (Stanford roommates and friends), my present (the UF which adopted me into their DC shenanigans), and my future (the really cool SAIS dudes that I'm convinced will make some great memories in Bologna next year). AND THEY ALL GOT ALONG WITH EACH OTHER!
The night ended off with a dance party, some closet-raiding for costumes and a big smile on my face because my life rocks.
