Where would you want to live if you worked late on the Hill?

I currently live and work on the Hill (by Capitol South) and am thinking about moving. Problem is, I rarely work 9-6 or 7, and I don’t want to have to deal with changing metro lines or buses late at night or walking through emptyish streets late. That said, I’d still like to be in an interesting, even bustling part of town and not spend a butt-load of money. I wouldn’t even mind a longish commute if it meant the actual walking late at night part was minimal. I’m looking around close-in parts of the Hill and Eastern Market (even if the walk is longer than my current 15 mins, I can hop on a bus when it’s really late). Also considering Glover Park on Wisconsin (30s buses) – after years on the Hill, convenient grocery stores are way more exciting than they should be – and U Street (96 stops in front of the Capitol when I don’t feel like waiting at L’Enfant for a change). I’m also restricted by affordability, as I’m looking for a studio for around $1300. So I’m curious, if you had to commute late at night from this part of town and didn’t have a car, where would you want to live? Or if you do work on the Hill and live in another neighborhood, how do you feel about your commute?

Certificate of Occupancy Basement — Seeking recommendation for architect/permit expediter

I know that this topic has been addressed in the past but I am hoping for some current recommendations from the Popville community. We have a basement unit that needs a Certificate of Occupancy. It is essentially up to code, we believe, but may require a few minor updates and possibly some window masonry. We are looking for an individual (could be an architect) or company that could handle any needed updates to the property in order for it to be to code while also dealing with inspections and expediting permits. Any referrals would be most appreciated!

Wedding After-Party Suggestions

Hi PoPville,

I’m getting married near Dupont Circle this May and am looking for a place for our after-party. Preferably a bar without a room rental fee for about 30 people. It doesn’t need to be totally private, I just want to make sure we have enough space to stay together. I’m considering the front room at Jack Rose, any other suggestions?

Desire Map Workshop at Yoga Heights DC – Jan. 31

The Desire Map Workshop – Level 1 is a one day retreat to ditch relentless goal setting and orient your goals around your core desired feelings. Knowing how you want to feel can transform the way you work, live, and love.
.
Let 2015 be the year the journey feels as good as reaching the destination.

Get all the juicy details + sign up here: http://www.jessicaleighlyons.com/#!desire/c20wm

Part I: Desire Map Workshop – Level 1 led by Jessica Leigh Lyons
When: Saturday, January 31, 10:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Where: Yoga Heights DC

This program is for clarifying what you truly want in every area of your life, and using that powerful awareness to guide your choices from now on. You will be guided through 5 life areas, to explore your most desired feelings in:

Lifestyle + Livelihood
Creativity + Learning
Body + Wellness
Relationships + Society
Essence + Spirituality

We will create sacred space, inner and outer – backed by a great music playlist and tied together with shared intentions. We’re going to burn limiting beliefs (figuratively, and maybe literally.) We will offer up our own wisdom, relate, and learn from each other — like women (and some very cool dudes) always do.

You will make some soul-anchored declarations and attach them to some every day PLANS. Poetic to the practical.

Part II: 60 Minute Coaching Intensive

After the workshop, you’re bound to be brimming with ideas. You’ll have a one-on-one 60 minute coaching call to solidify your CDFs and craft a high-level plan that feels good for your 2015.

If this is coming at the right time and you’re ready, get all the juicy details + sign up here: http://www.jessicaleighlyons.com/#!desire/c20wm

I want to support you in 2015 being the year that felt joyful, so if you have questions about whether this is the right fit, the right time, the right group, please reach out. jess@jessicaleighlyons.com

In search of used music/electronic equipment in DC

I’m looking to replace a broken receiver for my turntable/speaker set up and I would prefer not to spend an arm and a leg! Any ideas as to where I can find a used amp or some other sort of receiver in DC (outside of craigslist)? I’m hoping there’s a storefront that I simply have yet to find in the area. If that doesn’t really exist here, any recommendations for new equipment? Thanks!

Burying cables

Popville,

I saw Pepco crews who appeared to be burying power lines on 9th and Varnum this morning. I heard something about burying cables last spring but didn’t know what the outcome would be. Any idea if this is what they were actually doing? Will this result in utility polls coming down? That would be fantastic if we can make it happen!

Cheers from the neighborhood.

Please look our for our missing cat, Mogley!

Our 18 year old male brown tabby cat, Mogley, made a mad dash out the back door last night (usually only an indoor cat) and we haven’t been able to find him. He has been a part of our family since he was 8 weeks or so old and is an important part of our family. He has suffered from intestinal disease for the last year and is on a special diet and medications. If you see or find him, he is a friendly guy. Please keep him warm in this cold weather and give us a call or email to jknight@jubileehousing.org. We are happy to reward your kindness.

Found: Possibly Stolen Backpack with laptop case and books

Hey, We found a new looking backpack dumped in the trash behind our house in Columbia Heights. It had a few books in it and a laptop case. We think it was probably stolen from a Catholic University student, because there were a few receipts from bookstores around Catholic. Unfortunately the laptop is missing and only the case remains, but if you would like your backpack back, please shoot me an email at tobina88 at gmail dot com and just state either the brand of the backpack, what one of the books was about, or the title of one of the books so we know its yours.

Courses/Certification for Teaching English as a Foreign/Second Language

I’d like to obtain a certificate that would permit me to teach English to non-English speakers. I want a classroom experience, not an online course, in the form of intensive instruction in a course that runs 4 to 6 weeks.

I have found several and would like to know if any Popvillians have any experience in taking this type of course. Both AU ($10,000) and Georgetown ($4,000) have their own intensive programs, but they are very expensive. A few language instruction companies offer programs here in DC for somewhat less. I am looking at Oxford Seminars (6 consecutive weekends 9-5/$2,000) and Learning House (1 month, M-F, daily 9-5?$2,500).

The main, initial qualification is called the CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) or Cert TESOL (Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language). Does anyone know if one certification is better than the other?
