Do everything, experience everything and meet everyone

I had meticulously planned my route from the airport to to the admin building and my dome at GWU. When I got off at foggy bottom I took a wrong turn, two hours later I was sitting in my dorm room covered in sweat and wondering what did I get myself into. Ten weeks later I didn't want to go home, I had one of the best experiences of my life. In the weeks of the internship I visited every museum, memorial and attended event available to me.

How you spend you time between the day you arrive and the day you leave is up to you. My advice is to do everything, experience every thing and meet everyone you can.
