Settling into DC

It has been over a year since my last blog post and I have had lots of exciting adventures since Lebanon. But now I’m in the midst of my biggest adventure in all of my 23 years…

Krash WorkspaceOn Sunday, I packed up my parent’s Honda Pilot and we drove the 342 miles from Hudson, Ohio to my new home for the next four months in Washington DC!

I am relocating to DC, but for my first few months here I will be staying in a community called Krash. Krash has just launched in DC with a location in the Bloomingdale neighborhood. There are 14 other Krashers staying here with me. They are all involved with really cool projects, internships, start ups, etc.

Every Sunday Krashers have family dinner. After I was settled in this past Sunday, I went down for family dinner. It was a great opportunity to meet many of the other residents and some of their friends as well. I was very impressed by some of the dishes brought by my roommates. For example, one roommate grilled amazing shrimp kabobs and another made a delicious corn, black bean, and avocado salad. In addition to impressive culinary skills, it was fascinating to talk with my roommates Krash3aabout all of their ideas and projects. The creative energy is contagious and I am excited to see what the next few months have in store.

Some more about Krash: Krash was founded in Boston. There are three Krashpads in Boston, three in New York City, and is continuing to grow at a rapid pace across the country (and soon the world!). Krash is a full service short term housing solution. Residents can focus on their startups, personal projects, and interests, rather than worry about the logistics of their living situation. Some amenities provided by Krash are a twice weekly cleaning service, linen service, gourmet kitchens stocked with staples, and much more.

There are no TV’s in any Krash locations because the emphasis is on the experience, Krash4abuilding relationships and learning from the other roommates. Although, here in Bloomingdale (and all other Krashpads) we do a have a large projector screen so we are able to congregate together and watch the World Cup!

So that is a little about Krash and my start to DC. I hope to post many more updates over the next few weeks! Please let me know if there is anything specific you would like to hear about. It is easiest for me to share here so I can inform everyone.
