What a fun day at the D.C. Botanical Gardens! My RA planned the trip with another hall, but I was the only one to show up from my building which worked out because I was able to make friends with some awesome people! It was so much fun to walk around and explore the gardens. After getting “rained” on one too many times by the indoor humidifiers, we headed outside to look around before going to the Library of Congress and getting our cards! That’s one item off the bucket list! Unfortunately, I forgot my license so my card is “unverified” and expires on the first of April.
On the metro back, a strange man was sprinting back and forth through the car while the train was in motion, as well as laying flat on his back in the middle of the aisle and asking people for crack and money. At one stop, he ran off the train to the opposite platform; I thought for sure that he was going the kill himself right then and there by throwing himself onto the tracks but he didn’t, thank God, and instead, ran right back onto our train. You never know what you’ll encounter in D.C. Every day’s an adventure; that’s for sure.
