And the weekend is complete! I went to Chinatown, DC (hence the title) and went to dinner to celebrate a friends belated birthday. It was nice to break away from the pace of classes and the "norm." We ate at Nando's, this Portuguese spot in DC. I had a perfectly seasoned veggie burger and rice. My friends all had Nando's grilled chicken, of course. It was a great time of laughter and friends. With classes ending this week and finals next week, I'm feeling in the reflective state. Overall, this school year and my God has been good to me. Actually, I would say that the last couple of years have been good to me. I definitely wouldn't say that it has been filled with endless joy and excitement. But I've realized that in order to appreciate the "ups" in life, you have to know the "downs." And I am grateful for those "downs" and low points. If my next series of posts is at the beginning of January, don't be surprised because I am sure to begin my hibernation after exams.
