Hi

ello! 

I've dabbled with blogging in the past, but I was feeling the need to start over.  So here's my new blog, lots of deep thoughts about life and my attempt to write down all that makes up being 21.  

A bit about me, I'm a college student living in Washington, DC working on Capitol Hill in political management.  I have 1 year left at my small, liberal arts college on the cornfield laden Eastern Shore of Maryland before I'm thrown head first into the 'real world.'  I was lucky enough to spend 5 months living in the Kingdom of Denmark and study at the University of Copenhagen.
