First, why DC? Around January of last year, Ryan was feeling particularly down about his current LLM (essentially a masters in law) program and I encouraged him to apply to his only other LLM option, Georgetown. I had no idea what was in store. About four months later, he got the letter in the mail. He had gotten in. He was over the moon...I was excited..for him! I was immediately overwhelmed with the possibility of moving so far away from a life I have been building in Milwaukee. But, over time, as things started to come together, I came around to the idea (the engagement didn't hurt). The program is only a year and Ryan left in August. I decided to join him in January even though it would only be for six months. I am graduating from grad school in December and can't start my career until the next fall so after a lot of encouragement from family we decided I would join him after Christmas until the next adventure!
So, as of right now, I will join him soon (not soon enough) and we will live there until graduation unless he takes a job there. Or...he could take a job ANYwhere. Essentially, a year from right now we could be anywhere and I am only slightly terrified by that idea!
This was supposed to be about my trip...
That will come next!
Happy Monday! YAY for new tv!
