After work, my friend and I walked around the monuments and then met up with another friend to get lunch. We went to the Post Office Pavillion- I got Chinese food and then there was a Ben and Jerry's... so of course I had to get ice cream haha.
After that, we had to go to the Holocaust Museum for class. Unfortunately, you aren't allowed to take pictures in there. We didn't get to see the whole museum because our class focused on the propaganda exhibit. It's sad to walk through the museum and see how the Nazis used propaganda to convince everyone that they were doing a good thing, but I think it's good to learn about.

On Saturday, I went to volunteer at the Anacostia River to pick up trash. For The Washington Center, we have to do a civic engagement project to learn how volunteering helps everyone and my project is about the environment. It made for an early morning, but I met a lot of great people and ended up enjoying myself!
Last night I went out to dinner with one of my friends and then we went to Dupont Circle. We wanted to go somewhere to listen to music and she heard about a jazz concert going on somewhere. Well we ended up at Kramerbooks and Afterwords.
There was jazz music, but it definitely wasn't what we expected- it was better! This is a bookstore that is open 24 hours on the weekend, but when you head to the back of the store, there is a bar and restaurant with live music.
You can't see it very well, but where those "&" signs are at the top is where we were sitting. There is an upstairs section where two guys were playing jazz music. We met up with a bunch of other people from our program and it was so much fun! We stayed there for hours just talking and listening to music.
This morning I went for my usual weekend run around the mall and I'm planning on going to the National Book Festival and Botanic Gardens today!
What is your favorite Ben and Jerry's ice cream?
Have you ever been to a Holocaust Museum?
