I Am Only Going Up from Here

I was really excited when I found out that I was going to intern for a senator in DC last year. I was only there for six months, and I ended up rooming with a few other female interns. I fell in love with the city, and I knew that I wanted to live in DC for the rest of my life. I have my own political aspirations, and this was the perfect town to call home so I could start reaching toward my dreams sooner rather than later. I did a search for luxury Washington DC apartments not long ago once I made this decision, and it did not take me long to find the apartment I wanted.

I did not need a big place right away. I knew that my parents would not visit me until I got more settled, which meant in about ten years. That is okay though, because they don’t like big cities and they like flying even less. I didn’t mind using my holiday time to go and visit them instead. Because of that, the one bedroom unit I got at the Westbrooke Place was plenty big enough for me.

My favorite thing about the entire apartment is the balcony. I have never had a balcony before, and all the ones that I looked at with other apartments were on the small side. This balcony is not only the length of my living room but of my kitchen too. It is huge, and it is my favorite spot to be. When I am having dinner by myself at home, this is almost always where I eat it. I also have a fireplace in the living room that I know I will be using a lot in the winter. This apartment is great, and I know that I am only going up from here.
