This is my office. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Actually, it may be one of the smallest shared offices in the building.
This is my officemate Aaron. He is hard at work. Just look at those neck muscles bulge!
This is Larkin. She used to have my job, but she got promoted. She's been training me and she's very nice. She also has the nicest computer screen on our floor.
This is the outside of my building. Sometimes a homeless guy will camp out near the entrance. He has an interesting personality quirk: he likes to piss into a clear plastic Starbucks cup, then display it on the sidewalk like it's street art.
This is the entrance to Washington Harbor, a premiere waterfront venue with excellent restaurants and bars. It's about a 30-second walk from my building. When you are in the harbor, you have a perfect view of the Watergate and the Kennedy Center. I was too lazy to walk all the way down there to snap a photo.
This is the famous C & O Canal. This particular part is about a block from my building, and it's also a popular lunch spot. Sometimes, when I get to work early, I take a nice leisurely morning stroll along the Canal.
This is Georgetown, arguably the best shopping and dining area in DC. It's actually way cooler in real life, this is just a crappy photograph.
This is a restaurant that my cousin's friend supposedly owns. I took this picture for her.
This is an antique store on M street. I don't know the name of it, I just took a picture because it looked pretty.
This is Bridge Street Books, a cheap bookstore. A lot of the books on that table are 4 dollars or less.
For those of you who were wondering "Golly, where is Heather going to get her Raspberry Snapple fix?"
THEY SELL IT EVERYWHERE HERE!!
Finally, this is how I feel about my new job:

Just a quick update.
My new job is going great. I feel like my foot is firmly implanted within the door to my career.
Once I remember to bring a digital camera into the office, I will post pictures of my new digs.
Tomorrow I'm having lunch with my mother at Sequoia, which is right next to my new office. I'm so excited!
