The “Home” Run

I hit one today. It went flying out of the ballpark. But I couldn’t have done it without a few good friends and catching a break. It’s a team effort after all.

We walked into this apartment in May after checking out a dozen more.

I fell in love with it instantly. So did she. We wanted to make it our home right then and there. It was slick with a lot of swag and attitude. And it was the next best thing to one of the extravagant lofts we had viewed earlier. It’s in a vibrant and hip community in Washington D.C., and a 15-20 minute bike ride to law school.

After weeks of paperwork, credit and background checks, we can finally call this our new home:

I’m going to be an American and figure out how to pay for it later.

Unapologetic. Unashamed. Unafraid.

    Really nice place! Is this near GWU? Happy that you have found a place you really like.

    • It’s a 20 minute bike-ride to school, maybe 30 minute train ride at most
      (compared to the 2 hours in commute I spend here in the Bay Area, it is
      nothing). We didn’t want a place completely near GWU because we are tired of
      that neighborhood after living there for a whole year. This is in a
      gentrified though really great mixed hipster neighborhood with a great vibe.
      We really loved it. And thank you.
