The absolute best part about D.C. is that the vast majority of museums are free! The Smithsonian museums are all right next to each other and lie along the National Mall so last weekend, since the weather was beautiful, I decided to hit them all up!

The first museum I went to was the Air and Space museum. It was so large and spacious and was full of, as you guessed it, planes! It was so overwhelming with all of the cool things to see and do. The trip definitely very briefly inspired me to want to work for NASA.
I got to learn a little about navigation, what goes into space suits, and a ton of other cool stuff. I remember visiting the museum as a kid but didn’t appreciate it like I did when I just went recently. It’s funny how museums are usually geared toward kids but you don’t start to appreciate them once you’re an adult.
So I have been stocking up on things I need for my room since I go back to campus in a little over a week and I decided, what better way to spend my
money time than by going to Target? I literally stocked up on everything: air freshener, Tylenol, and even toothpaste. For some reason I always get scared second semester that there is going to be an unnecessarily large blizzard that will keep me trapped in my dorm for a month so I want to make sure I’m prepared.
I’ve been collecting all of my items in a little pile in my living room, much to the dismay of my family. But good news for them, I’m rapidly running out of Christmas money, especially since I bought $100 worth of goodies from Target…. I only have to buy gifts for two people and I’ll be done with shopping, I hope.
