Went to see my childhood friend, Kelly, last weekend. She moved to DC to attend Georgetown. She finished her thesis and defended it almost 6 months ago: “Spatial Regulation of Chromosomal Replication in a Bacterial Model System.” Tumor biology is her thing. In March she started working for the Navy and is really enjoying it.
It was so nice to see her. It’s been too long. She was a great hostess. Her graduation was on Friday and that took the whole day and evening. We had a nice dinner on the river front and then went our separate ways. We went to see a few monuments on Saturday after we went to the Eastern Market. Nick and I then crashed at the hotel for a couple of hours and then watched ATHF till 1am. Our legs and feet were so sore with all the walking. Sunday we took our time getting ready and checking out of the hotel. Had a nice breakfast and then went to coffee with Kelly and Nick’s friend. He also had a graduation ceremony this weekend. After coffee we went to the Pentagon Mall and wandered for an hour or so. By then we had to catch our flight home.
I was sad to leave. I miss her so much.
