If you’ve been to the Mall in the past year, you’ve seen the new National Museum of African American History and Culture taking shape, and a few weeks ago, it finally opened!

If you follow me on instagram, you know that I recently went to San Francisco. While I’ve been to California before, I’ve never been to SF, so I was obviously excited to see the famous city. And with views like these, it definitely didn’t disappoint…

Like almost everyone I know, I love travelling. There are few sights more exciting than the horizon out of a plane window, knowing that you’re off in search of new experiences.
But… I hate checking bags when I fly. Waiting around the baggage claim with a hundred other tired and grimy travelers, pushing my way to the front when I finally spy my bag, only to have been fooled by a bag doppleganger and finally having to lug an extra piece of luggage around your final destination *shudder*. Ugh, no thank you!!

For some reason, a few months ago I thought it would be a good idea to sign up for the Rock ‘n Roll half marathon…
I know, I’m crazy. But sign up I did, which means that the last few months have consisted of more running than I have ever done in my life! Luckily, I have an awesome roommate who was willing to train with me, and a friend who ran the marathon with me, so it wasn’t bad at all!
Finally, a few weeks ago, months of training (and attempting to motivate myself to train) paid off, and I finished my first half marathon!
*Quick note, sorry about the poor photo quality, most were taken while running!*

Welcome to DC Darling and my first post!
I’m pretty nervous honestly, it’s kind of scary to put yourself out there, to say “Hello world, look at me!”. In a way, it feels a little narcissistic, like, why do I think I’m so great that you would want to spend your coffee break reading through my silly thoughts about DC, food, and my attempts at being an adult?
Now, I know what I would be thinking if I were you…. “If this girl has so many qualms about writing a blog… why is she doing it??” And that’s a valid point, so here’s my explanation. Firstly, I love writing, I always have. When I was little I used to make my mum type up my stories because I was too young to actually write them myself, so this blog is a creative outlet for me. Secondly, I wanted to learn how to use WordPress (super nerdy reason right?), I’ve been teaching myself web development for a while now, so I figured it would be useful.
Finally, being afraid of putting myself out there seemed like a pretty crappy reason not to do something that I’ve been wanting to do for ages. So, I’m taking the plunge and hoping for the best! Let me know what you think 🙂
