I made a friend today because of my Quidditch shirt   4 comments

A few days ago, when Discover DC took us to the African American Civil War Memorial, I was looking at the names of thousands of soldiers that are engraved there, and one name in the 85th regiment stood out to me: “Rachel Tournais.” I asked the tour guide about it and she said that there were definitely women who dressed up as men to be in the army. Her name is so similar to mine, it’s funny…

I ran some errands today. I ran into some people I knew at the Tenley station while we were waiting for the train, and we rode together until Gallery Pl/Chinatown, where they transferred and I emerged. While we were waiting, a girl noticed my Quidditch shirt and commented on it, saying that her brother plays Quidditch at his college. We talked on the train the whole way and she told me to add her on Facebook. There are many duplicates of her name and I don’t know which one is her. But I gave her my phone number, so hopefully she will call me.

The hurricane did it’s worst yesterday. My umbrella turned inside out three times, like in movies, and it looks a tiny bit like it might be kinda broken, but that was the extent of the hurricane’s damage. Oh, and my shoes got soaked.
