Grace Presbyterian Church of Washington, DC, and it was a little more traditional than I had expected. I'm glad I went, but it was definitely out of my comfort zone. I felt like my day had been completely wasted--what a way to start a very important week.
After church, a group of friends and I received an invitation to dinner at Capitol Q Texan BBQ. I thought to myself, "I really don't have the money, but maybe a good dinner will cheer me up."
Not only is Capitol Q Texan BBQ ranked in Washington, DC's top 10 City's Best barbecue restaurants, but they sure do know how to treat a lady! Out of the group, I somehow managed to save ALL my money and still chow down on some pretty tasty barbecue. Apparently I smiled too much or gave an accidental wink to the cashier, but whatever the reason, I received the royal treatment; FREE FOOD. My day had been completely revived.
With the first week of internships behind me, I am now in recovery mode. I have been through many emotional ups and downs over the past few days, but its true--I did survive and I think credit is due to my ability to find optimism when everything seems to be failing. Capitol Q Texan BBQ taught me that and I have forever changed.
