good, bad, ugly

you know the saying “love them through the good, bad, and ugly”? well i got to thinking about this phrase today…and I’ve come to the conclusion that love is hardly never even 70% sunshine and rainbows. there’s a reason why there are two negative adjectives in that phrase…and i believe that it’s because the bad and ugly are what make love such a powerful emotion. yes it’s great to have the sweet times of laughter and shared experiences, but it’s the bad and ugly that make the two of you stronger.

the deepest love i have ever felt for a man was not because of what he could buy me, or what vacation he could take me on. it was the fact that when i got an irritating pimple below my butt cheek (yes i get those! i guess it’s the silver lining to never being caught with a pimple on my face lol) he would excitedly pop it because he knew how much it annoyed me. or when he made sure to hold my hair back while i wretched from eating a pasta that disagreed with my stomach. or even engaging in a back and forth argument with me. (call me crazy, but i do believe that only someone who really loves you will go back and forth with you about something as silly as a social media post haha)


first love the bad and ugly, and the good will be a super extra bonus! (like extra french fries in the bottom of your fast food bag)

white house whaddup!

here are a few snapshots of my trip to D.C. a few weekends ago. 🙂


Saturday: Ambar 523 8th St. SE, Washington, D.C. 20003

Unlimited small plates and brunch cocktails $39 ($42.90 w/tax lol)

Sunday: Masa 14 1825 14th St. NW, Washington,  D.C. 20009

Unlimited small (but more so medium) plates and brunch cocktails $39 (also $42.90 w/tax)


United States Memorial Holocaust Museum 100 Raoul Wallenberg Place SW, Washington, D.C. 20024

Ozio 1813 M St NW, Washington, DC 20036

no pictures were taken at this venue lol BUT it was a really good time nonetheless! at first we walked in and didn’t see much, but after we walked upstairs we were greeted by dancing patrons and a mix between early 2000s and current hip hop. 🙂

Transportation: UBER EVERYWHERE!

oh em gee! i have always been a fan of uber (well except that one time when i left my keys in one and the driver decided to go ghost when it came time to return them…), but in D.C. uber is the go-to for transportation! the average cost of an uber was roughly $7! isn’t that awesome? now i did opt for the uber pool every time, but hey, it’s always a good time to meet new people!


Jannah and I also decided to bike around the city…this lasted all of 45 minutes because we had no idea where we were going, and i got thoroughly distracted by a local dog park lol


if you have been or frequent the DMV area PLEASE leave any and all suggestions! i definitely plan on making more trips there in the future. 🙂
