Getting a bit behind.

There's a reason for it though! And it's maybe one of the hardest things I have done in my life. 

Job applications. ;  _ ; Needless to say, besides a resume, I haven't really done anything job-wise besides working for my mom's friends. So wish me luck in getting a job, please. I think I am really going to need it.

And this means that I still have a few letters to respond to. Tári, I'm sorry, yours still isn't done.

But, as a few of you may know, I went to Olympia on Monday (Washington's capitol), and I have a few pictures to share! (This is the end of the penpal related post, if you're not curious, then that's it! :D )
 The building itself (well, the main part with all the main offices and such)
 Washington state seal.
 Inside of the lobby.
 Detail on one of the front doors. It's made of brass, I believe. There's more pictures later on.
 The room where they vote on bills. Our representative offered to give us a shout out if we decided to watch. Unfortunately, we had to go.
There's a page system, where you get to help out in the state building. Unfortunately, I miss the age limit by one year! D:
 A statue of George Washington. The reason his nose is discolored is because the pages and interns rub it for good luck. I got to rub it as well. I hope the luck lasts!
 Inside one of the offices, they have an awesome display of stuff. I can't remember the time period, though.

 Washington's constitution.
 A time capsul! I'll probably die before they open it, though. ): A depressing thought.
 A farther out view.
 More images on the door. I wanted to take one home, haha. They're very pretty.

 You can't see it very well in the picture, but it's names that when looked at right, make 3 soldiers. It's everyone from Washington who died in WWII.

Another view of the building.

So yeah, it was a really fun trip. We were all really tired though, because we had to be at about 4:30, so I didn't go to sleep the night before. It was not a good idea.


  1. No worries, dear! I can wait! And I wish you lots of luck in your job research! <3
    By the way, the pictures of Olympia are very nice :)

  2. It really looks like I great trip! I would love to see all that one day!
