Hey Blog Buddies! I have obviously been neglecting you (not my fault, blame the lack of a decent internet connection). Therefore, there will be multiple posts this week as my internship is now coming to a sad close. While I am excited to return home to my friends and family, I will definitely miss this […]

Friends, Friends, Friends

This past week has been extremely hectic.  It was full of things to do, places to go, and people to see – so much so that now, as I sit in my room alone, it is eerily quiet and it feels weird that I actually have time to sit and write this blog post.  The […]

New York City Swagger

The Big Apple is certainly not for everyone, but I think over time I’ve grown to love its one-of-a-kind, New York City charm. I get restless easily and frankly the truism “Sometimes you just need to get away” contains clear wisdom. I needed a change of scenery from blisteringly hot D.C. so last weekend I […]

Escape from the City

This past weekend I decided to take a break from the city and visit my friend, Lindsay, in New Jersey. There’s a train from Penn Station that goes to the beach she goes to (Spring Lake, NJ), so I figured it would be an easy ride. All I had to go was transfer at the […]

Heat Wave

It’s so hot.  The forecast says that it is 103 degrees right now…but that it feels like 115.  The heat has already broken at least one record: the record high in Central Park.  The record used to be 101 degrees, and that was in 1957.  I knew it was going to be bad when I […]

Which Smithsonian?

July 21, 2011 So I was chatting with a friend at NIH who’s from the area, and we were discussing attractions to visit in Washington DC. I said, “Oh I really want to visit the Smithsonian.” My friend just looked at me and said, “Which one?” Clearly, I never realized that there existed more than […]

Behind the Scenes of Another Government Agency

One of my favorite aspects of Lafayette is the tightly-knit network of alumni and the potential for students to establish connections through a community of connections. Last semester, when I was studying abroad, I applied for the Intern Scholar Program through Career Services. Knowing that I would be living in Washington DC, I perceived accurately […]

Sorry about such a long wait for an update. I’ve been too busy living this awesome life I live 🙂 The last week in June, I had the opportunity to work a Comedy Central event. While there aren’t very many events that interns get to go to in the summer, it’s still nice to get […]

Interviewing

Apparently the internship coordinator, Sharon, wants us interns to go out and interview people every day when we work.  I was a little nervous at first – after all, this is my first time interviewing people off the street for this internship.  I knew I was bound to get some rejections, but what if no […]

Finding the words to describe “The Capital of the World”

posted in Brian Selvarajah

tagged with ,

For some reason, I am unable to find the exact words to describe Washington DC concisely; it’s almost as if I’m searching for an adjective that I just cannot grasp. I usually form an opinion of a city immediately upon visiting for a weekend but I cannot decide what I think about DC. Amidst the […]
