swingin’ saturdays

Have I ever proclaimed my love of Saturdays? Yesterday was a dream. I woke up, hopped on the metro, and arrived at the Smithsonian’s Ripley Center in time for an all-day seminar. I spent seven hours listening to Susan Wise Bauer, one of my favorite historians, lecture on the great books of science. It was absolutely scrumptious.*

There is so much to learn. It doesn’t take a seven hour lecture to realize how much you don’t know, but a seven hour lecture will definitely do the trick. I am so glad I am on spring break because, golly, I have a lot of reading to do!

After the seminar, I met Bauer and was lucky enough to get a picture with her. I immediately shared it on Instagram because it’s 2018, and posting is protocol at this point. I spent a while after reviewing my notes, but I had to stop because my Saturday was far from over. After arriving home, I took a hot shower, fixed my face (i.e. apply makeup), and popped into tights and a flowy romper.

At 7:30, I was heading out the door again—this time with my boy, for dinner and dancing. Because that’s what Saturday nights are for.  (For reference, we went to swing at Glen Echo. Highly recommend. Afterwards, we met up with friends at the Tastee Diner in Bethesda. Also highly recommend. Their milkshakes are to-die-for.)

*fun fact for a date: The mathematician Pythagoras garnered what was, in essence, a cult following.
