Anyway - weekend update. B and I made an
I was finally able to sleep in a bit on Saturday. No volunteer stuff this weekend. I had hoped to finally clean my room and put away the 4 loads of laundry I did last week, but nope. Instead I met up with Caro and 2 friends downtown at H&M for some quality shopping time. Well, I went there to return stuff from my spree the week before, but had the wrong receipt. Drat.
In the afternoon the roommates and I + a roommate's sibling + a friend went to the Greek festival at the Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral. I've intended to go every year, but this was the first time I actually made it. BEST lamb gyro I've ever had. Smothered in tzatziki sauce and feta cheese. Delish. The live band made me want to dance and yell "Opa!" a bunch of times, but I restrained myself, seeing that I'm not Greek.... We toured the cathedral briefly - beautiful. If you haven't been in, go check it out. I'd love to attend one of their services sometime - it's so different from mine.
Sat night, metro'd down to Alexandria to meet up with EW, now EG, and her new hubby Todd. She's in town for the summer making MAJOR bank at a law firm. Is it time to rethink my career? Hmmm..... We hung out at her summer home then went to Robin's graduation party. Robin's always the perfect hostess with tons of yummy food, including homemade salsa, heavy on the cilantro. Just the way I like it.
Sunday held more graduation stuff - a handful of friends graduating from Gtown Med. Wow, is all I can say. I honestly don't see how anyone makes it through pre-med, 4 years of med school, then 4+ years of residency. That's dedication. Kudos to them. I did skip church for graduation, but I still heard an opening and closing prayer with some inspiring words in between. Made me think back to my graduation ceremonies, hard to believe it was 3 years ago. I love Georgetown. I'm glad I went there. I love tradition and being part of a school that's more than 200 years old. Not many places like that in America.
Jorge (a brave med school graduate) invited me to dinner with his parents on Sunday night, so we headed out to Annapolis to dine on some seafood. I went for the ribs, but hey, I like what I like. I was expecting a half rack of ribs, and gasped when I was served 2 full racks. SO much food. I gave about half of it away and still couldn't finish it. His parents are from Ecuador, and are absolutely lovely people. I'm glad I finally met them. Jorge and I have been friends for about 6 years now. I think he said I'm the oldest friend he has in DC at the moment. That's kinda cool. He's off to residency at UVA, so he'll still be close by.
Must sleep now.....ackk....
