I am working for a company that is based in the capital, but I do not want to actually live in Washington. Instead, I would prefer to find a house that is located a bit outside of the capital. I have decided on Fairfax VA as the perfect place for me to live, and it makes sense to me, because I am originally from Virginia. I was not born anywhere close to Fairfax, but it is still nice to be able to live in the state where you were born and raised. For a little bit of time, I was considering moving to Maryland, and I had an apartment in Maryland for a brief amount of time.

Instead, I would rather just lay in bed and read for about an hour or so before I go to sleep too. I was having such a hard time locating a good light though, so I asked a couple of my friends to keep an eye out for one since they love to shop online. One sent me an email that said to click to view some reading lights that she thought would be perfect for what I needed.
