How To Have A Good Day
One thing I’ve learned recently in my life, and especially during these past few months, is how important the start of your day is. How you start your day sets the tone for how you will feel the rest of the day. Lately I have been trying to put an emphasis on starting my day right and beginning with things that make me feel good and make me happy. This usually consists of a cup or coffee (or three), a good breakfast, a clean face, and some sort of productive task. This past weekend, I chose to start my day with a little bit of exercise. My boyfriend and I got up nice and early, drove an hour and a half, and took a hike up a mountain. This may seem like a horrible idea to some people, but I swear it’s so rewarding and so worth it.

Yummy Delicious Goodness
Earlier this week, a quick errand turned into me craving something sweet, which is just bad news. I never really get cravings for sweets but all I could think about was the fact that I wanted ice cream. I even said to my friend Abby that I was just really needing it. Like immediately. Well Jesus really did it for me, because when we walked out of Lululemon, there was an ice cream shop right next door. I hadn’t been in the area before and hadn’t tried this ice cream shop yet so I was so excited, and my craving was going to be fulfilled (praise Jesus).

My New Found Love
I am definitely a dog girl. My family has never really owned a cat and we have a sweet sweet angel puppy right now, and honestly, cats are kind of mean sometimes. However, even though I’ve never had a cat, some of my friends do and I love them all. When I found out about the Crumbs and Whiskers cat cafe I knew I had to go. Crumbs and Whiskers is a place that takes in rescue cats, gives them a new home, and gives them a very good opportunity to be adopted. The cats are fed and taken care of at the cat cafe and they definitely get lots of good love and snuggles. I think that this is such an awesome concept. The environment that the cats are put in is great because it really allows the cats to become comfortable with humans and other cats as well as allowing them to really roam free in a safe way. All of the cats are up for adoption, and let me tell you, you will want to adopt by the time you leave.

It’s Easy To Use
Taking the metro is really the easiest way to get around D.C. Not only this, but it’s also one of the cheapest ways. There’s no need to worry about traffic or expensive Uber fares. Also, the D.C. Metro is incredibly safe, convenient, and clean. When I first came to D.C. I was a little hesitant to use the metro and all the money I’d spent on Ubers began to add up, so I finally decided to try the metro system out. I was originally nervous that using the metro was going to be super confusing, but it’s so simple and there are a couple different apps available that help out.

An Afternoon of Monumenting
Living in D.C. is such a new and exciting thing. The mixture of fresh, new vibes and the rich history has been so intriguing to me, and it’s something I really love. Another awesome thing is that all of the main monuments are within a pretty close distance of each other, so you can comfortably knock out a little monument tour without taking up your whole day. I do highly recommend taking the metro or uber / lyft just because it is super difficult to find parking in this area. I personally opt for the metro. It is a bit of a walk from the nearest metro stops to the Lincoln Memorial, but it if you find a bit of walking to be peaceful like I do, then I definitely recommend it.
