This week, Christopher was offered an amazing job in Washington D.C. and we've decided to move there! I am on a dissertation fellowship for the next year, so this is an unusually flexible moment in my graduate career and I'm thrilled at the thought of writing my dissertation in proximity to the Library of Congress. It's bittersweet to leave good friends and an area of the country we've both loved so much, but we are both excited for the next step in our lives.
We're moving on very short notice and neither of us know the city at all so I would love any advice, suggestions, insight about living in D.C. if anyone has it. Do you know great neighborhoods to live in? Do you know any other humanities grad students who might need a dissertation buddy? What's the best bookstore in town?
Thank you so much for being the best readers on earth xoxo
