Today, I drove the car around all by myself and did not hurt anyone or anything, though I am weirdly extra cautious on the road now.
Today, I ate a meal I've been dreaming about for two years: soup and salad. And it was delicious.
Today, I received ninety-five cents in change and truly did not know what to do with it. It stayed in my hand for a good five minutes. And then my fingers smelled like coins?! And then I stashed it somewhere in my clutch.
Today, I rode the Metro for the first time in a good number of years and I was that dorky person smiling and looking around me because it was so very wonderful. And then I was that person taking selfless on the Metro and today, I was ok with that.
Today, I discovered that Pumpkin Spice Lattes are kind of super sweet?! And my new coffee-drinking self struggled to get it all down. And it was five dollars and I am trying not to think about how very expensive that feels to me, five days out of Cambodia.
Today, I walked around Washington in a neck of woods where I interned...oh...eight years ago. And I remembered it well and it was affirming and fun and fantastic, all wrapped up in one. I reveled in every step today.
Today, I visited Peace Corps Headquarters and took what is probably a shockingly terrible picture for an I.D. badge.
Today I felt even more like I was home. And today was great.
