These are the last photos I took of my apartment in Maryland. It was very strange to see it all empty. It's weird now to think that someone else might be living there. Even though I don't live there anymore, it still seems like my apartment, and someone else there seems so strange. I think I'll always like this apartment and will think back on it fondly as my first apartment experience. Empty with a view to the kitchen and bathroom.
The front closets and A/C closet, with some boxes against the wall.
This was the area where my bed was, my sleeping alcove. It's kind of silly how much I miss this place, but moving was for the best.

These are pictures of the totally empty apartment as we were moving out. This was my last day in Maryland. As you can see, only Memo and his things are left. It was very weird seeing the apartment like this, because I had moved in with the intention of staying for five years, and not a year later I was vacating the place. It was sad because the apartment was my safe haven in a way from all of the struggles I was dealing with at Georgetown . Leaving the apartment was the only part of the moving out experience that made me cry.

While finishing up in DC we also visited the Lincoln Memorial. The last time I went to the Memorial I couldn't get up close as I was in a wheelchair and the handicapped elevator entrance was broken. This time, however, I was fine. So here's Mr . Lincoln. He's a bit blurry, which stinks because he looked quite clear on the camera screen. And this is the inscription above his head, which came out much better.

The next few posts will be pictures from my last few days in Washington DC. Hopefully in a week or so I'll have some Michigan pictures to share, although they will probably be mostly of my room. To start, this is a picture of my uncle Ron Sheffield's name on the National Law Enforcement Memorial at Judiciary Square. The memorial honors fallen federal police officers. My uncle was killed ten days after 9/11 by a crazed lunatic in Detroit while he was doing his job. I felt it was very important for me to visit the memorial before I left DC.

I'm on a slight hiatus until I find my memory stick. My laptop is the only computer I have that's internet capable at the moment, since my desktop doesn't have a wireless card. While I'm waiting for a USB wireless adapter, my pictures are sitting on my desktop. When I find my memory stick I'll bring them over to the laptop and post them. Hopefully that will be soon but I'm not positive.
