ecstatic, excited, thrilled

i'm going to the white house in september!! i got the internship!
whew. i'm all trembly and excited. i just read the email, called my mom, dad and gram. my internet connection is too crap to actually talk to any of them for very long, but yayyyyy!!!

today was just perfect all along.
slept in late, had chili chicken soup for brunch, followed by some time on the beach with my favorite girls, then for an oil massage which made us all smell like macaroons, then a pedicure, then a brownie with ice cream on the beach, then delicious indian dinner with perfect company and lots of pictures, then drinks on the beach, then drinks off the beach, then white house internship email to come home to!it was sad to say goodbye to everyone though. we've had such a nice vacation. i can't think of a better way to have spent the last two weeks. we made new friends who were tons of fun. i got to see leila, derek and emil again when i thought i'd never see them. i got a chance to get to know steve, who is super sweet and lovely. it was great.
i am so excited about DC!!
now i need to work on finding [cheap] housing in DC. anyone with connections, feel free to start working on this right now.

Blonde in Taiwan moves to Washington.
That has a nice ring to it.
I love you.

Cool. With all the stringent checks that the White House now demands, the fact that you've even been accepted is an amazing feat.

Congratulations.

P.S.

If you want to have a career in public office or you haven't made up your mind yet, I recommend you don't blog at all.

James and I used to live there! You can look on craigslist for roommates. If you want to live within in the District instead of VA or MD, I think you'd lovelovelove the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood.

What exactly will the internship entail? What office will you be working for and for how long?
Congratulations, happy that you're excited!
love Aunt Margy
