Week 2 by Bob

So far it has been two weeks and I haven't started working yet. But yesterday (Thursday) I finally started some training for my job position. I have been assigned 4 training courses yesterday and completed 2 of them as soon as I received the assignment. That's how much free time I had on my hands, so I thought its better off completing the courses as soon as possible.

Before I started the training, I started to run out of ideas of what to do in DC. I've already visited all of the museums in DC. Speaking of museums, I was surprised to hear about the Holocaust museum shooting after I was just there last week! It's sad that people still do things like that today. Anyways, I decided to go to the bookstore and buy a book. As I went to the bookstore, I couldn't decide on what book to buy! There were so many good books that I wanted to read. After spending a good 30 minutes in the bookstore trying to decide, I finally decided on one book to purchase. As I purchased the book, I went to the National Mall park and just found a bench and started reading until it got dark.

I went to explore Crystal City because I heard there was a farmers market going on in Crystal City, so I decided to hop on the Metro and head over to Crystal City. As I got there, it wasn't hard to find the farmers market. They provided many different foods and organic drinks. They even had homemade pie, I couldn't resist so I bought some. I took a little stroll on Mt. Vernon trail and ended up stopping in the park where the planes fly so low as they're landing at the Reagan airport. I thought that was the coolest thing I've ever seen! Every 5 minutes or so, you would have a commercial airliner flying so low over your head! I ended up staying there reading my book and eating my homemade pie as the planes fly overhead. Couple of hours later, a thunderstorm came by and decided to ruin my day so I was forced to get back on the Metro back to GW University.

This pretty much sums up my week, yeah I know its boring. Back home, I have many friends that I can hang out with but for me I don't know many people here in the DC area. Most of them are over 1000 miles away from me.
