I’ll be completely honest. Coming back to Washington after being in Paris was harder than I anticipated it would be. Despite the beautiful sunny weather, I find that all I really want to do is go for a walk by the Seine and eat pastries. I have little motivation otherwise, and find that going to see people I haven’t seen in 9 months gives me anxiety. But I have been trying my hardest to do at least one fun thing every day so that I will stop comparing everything to Paris and start enjoying my summer. Luckily I have lots of cool people (and cats) who want to hang out with me — even if I say, “Well when I was in Paris…” about every two seconds.
I hope all of you are having a wonderful start to the summer and getting out there to enjoy the sun!
