“Home” is exhausting. “America” is exhausting. But having an American kitchen and a Costco membership is awesome. Bertrand and I moved into our Crystal City apartment last weekend, and we are thrilled with State’s corporate housing.
We did the math and we could actually get a nicer place in town for the same per diem, but the no-hassle factor makes it 100% worth it. No security depsit. No rent. Fully furnished. Utilities (including Internet) included. Free shuttle to FSI. Great view.
A-100 is going well. Pretending to be charming every day is exhausting, but I’m loving having an 8-to-5 for the first time in my life. I’ve never had free time in the evenings or weekends before, and I’m not quite sure what to do with myself.
The current plan is to cook, blog, read, and get to know DC again. What do you do with unexpected free time?
