I just returned home from a visit to Washington, D.C. It was mostly a business trip for a company I am currently working for this summer. Even so, I was still able to go and visit most of the popular attractions such as the Lincoln Memorial, White House, Vietnam Memorial, World War II Memorial, and Smithsonian Museums. Here are a few pictures from the trip.

I went to a White Sox Game at U.S. Cellular Field on June 24, 2009, when they played and beat the L.A. Dodgers 10-7. There were a lot of home runs in the game and it was quite a long game. Even so it was a good experience and a fun time. Here are some pictures from the baseball game.

I have officially graduated from Northwestern University along with the rest of the class of 2009. I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Biomedical Engineering and also had a second major in Economics. The speaker at the ceremony on June 19, 2009, was Wynton Marsalis. He did a great job and played his trumpet as part of his speech. Congratulations to the Class of 2009!
