Summer has begun!

I can finally breathe a sigh of relief! I'm finally DONE with this semester!

That means summer is here!

I'm writing this post from a swanky hotel room overlooking Thomas Circle in the amazing Washington, DC! It's only been one day, but I am completely in love with this city! I wasn't expecting to love it as much as I do. Today's been an excruciatingly long day, but it was all well worth it. We got up at 3am, hopped on a flight at 7am, and made it to DC by 9:45.

First on the list of sightseeing excursions was the National Zoo. And obviously, the number one thing I was there to see was the Giant Panda! This was one thing on my list of things to do before I die, and it was so worth the wait! The pandas were adorable.

Afterwards, we headed to the Washington National Cathedral. This church was. AH. MA. ZING.

Amazing architecture, amazing history, all around amazing. the cathedral takes up about 57 acres, which all includes a girls' and boys' boarding school (very Gossip Girl). President Woodrow Wilson is buried there, and the fact that so many heads of state have sat in this church's pews was just awesome! I definitely recommend it. You MUST see it when you go to Washington.

We've been walking all day, and tomorrow we're heading to The White House and the National Mall. I can't wait.

I promise I shall blog pictures when I get home! :)
