Since I posted two weeks ago…
…I flew back to Atlanta from Sri Lanka, slept in a hotel, then flew to Philly where I spent the week staying at my Aunt and Uncles’ while experiencing one of the most engaging intellectual experiences of my life at the University of Pennsylvania. It’s a bit hard to convey. In short, I feel alive in a way that I have not been for five years—since college really. I am such a nerd at heart.
I flew back to Atlanta, met up with Alicia who just flew in, and she got a job offer! After negotiating with HR, we are now moving to DC. Alicia and I drive up tomorrow, hitting up some friends along the way, and will get there Sunday. We’ll apartment hunt and then I’ll fly down, get our stuff with my Dad’s help, and bring it on up and set up the place. Meanwhile, I am trying to keep up with a full academic load.
In other news, if you haven’t already, check out Bill Clinton’s speech at the Democratic convention. It was entertaining and enlightening—exactly my philosophy of communication.

Welcome to DC! We should meet up sometime. Annabel and I live in MD, but I commute to work in DC. Let me know if I can help with anything as you get acquainted with the DC metro area.

Jer! Congrats! Hit me up when you get to DC! Would be interested in hearing about your intellectual experience too
