Adventure #4: Washington D.C.

Hey Pals…hope you all enjoyed a wonderful week. S T R E S S F U L was the best way to describe my week. Every single day I either had an interview, a meeting, or a test/quiz to take. So, unfortunately I was unable to go on an adventure this weekend, but I do have a past fun adventure to tell you all about.

In January, my best friend Robbie and I decided that we wanted to take a trip somewhere before the semester started. Now, just a warning, y’all will hear me talk about Robbie A LOT. Besides being the funniest person I’ve ever met in my life, Robbie is one of those people that I thank God for every single day.

We call each other soul sisters because we are truly one soul. Although we are a lot alike, we are still very different at the same time. Since the day we met, which was the summer right before coming to college, we clicked. And we have been inseparable ever since– we live, party, travel, and pray together! Most of these adventures I take are with her!

So we thought about all of the different places we could go to that were in our area (St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago, etc.) but none of those places sounded appealing. One of Robbie’s good friends, Arin, is from Houston and goes to Howard University in Washington D.C. Every time we are with Arin, it's a good time. So we decided to go to D.C. and see what the capital of the U.S. had to offer.

   One of our very first stops was of course to the illustrious campus of Howard University.

Howard University was established in 1867 and is a federally chartered, private, doctoral university, classified as a high research activity institution. With an enrollment of more than 10,000 students, its undergraduate, graduate, professional and joint degree programs span more than 120 areas of study within 13 schools and colleges.

After walking campus, we decided to walk around D.C. to get a feel of the city. I loved the atmosphere of being surrounded by so much history.

Of course, we had to enjoy some good eats while we were there.

All and all, we had an amazing time. Although there were some things that we didn’t get a chance to do (like visit the new African American Museum :(, I still had a blast! We have already started planning our next trip back so we can visit that and much more!   

Until the next adventure w/ Fally P
See you soon pals!
