Thomas Edison once said...

On Sunday, I went to the National Portrait Gallery. We were there for over 2 hours and didn't even make it through an entire floor! There is so much to see, so I'll have to go back to see the rest. 


The Presidents' Exhibit was amazing, but this was my favorite thing in the whole place. It's called "The Six Degrees of Peggy Bacon". Basically, it shows the six degrees of this painter and she has connections to so many famous people! Now, thanks to Facebook, there are only 4.74 degrees of separation. 

Today, I had my first day of programming (random classes)  through the The Washington Center. It went really well, but my meeting with my internship coordinator after did not. It seems I really have no option but to stay with my internship for now because my internship coordinator is not helping. 

This whole situation is making me think of the Thomas Edison quote: "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." I think through school and this internship, I have found 10,000 jobs that I don't want to do when I graduate. But eventually, I will find the right job for me! 

But, I went to lunch and shopping with a friend after my unfortunate meeting. The rest of my afternoon totally cheered me up!


I got Qdoba for lunch and Georgetown Cupcakes for dessert! This is a Cookies and Cream Cupcake- and 100% of the proceeds went to help children! 

I also bought a DC mug today, I am such a tourist sometimes haha. 


Now I'm off to class! Wish me luck!

How was your Monday?

  1. Mariah! You have such a great outlook on this situation :) I know you will find 1,000 jobs you do want to do as well! Fingers crossed that things will get better as the semester progresses! And that cupcake looks delicious (and it was for charity)! Win/Win situation in my book!

    It's too bad the intership experience isn't as fulfilling as the great sights, foods, charity cupcakes :-D, as well as the friendships you are making during your time in DC. Hang in there sweet niece :)
