“Live the full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the romance of the unusual.” ~Ernest Hemingway

I’ve been in my job for almost 4 months and in D.C. for 6 months. Now that I’m getting my groove back, I’m going to spend the Fall exploring. Here’s what I’ll be up to:

  1. Playing in a co-ed soccer league with a few of my friends.
  2. Capturing the urban landscapes of D.C. with a pencil in hand thanks to the DC Sketchers class offered by Capitol Hill Arts Workshop. Every Saturday we travel to a new location in D.C. and spend two hours taking a drawing class.
  3. Taking in the Fall cultural events season in DC. There are so many high quality theater, music, and literary events to attend.
  4. Finding ways to continue my public storytelling that I started this summer with Story District.
  5. Traveling. My dear friend, Amy, is going to be in Sarajevo for a fellowship and I’m hoping to take some time this Fall to visit her in this incredible city. I’m long overdue for a trip out of the country.
  6. Teaching myself to play the piano.

What new things are you trying this Fall?

About Christa Avampato

I make a living in business and I make a life as a writer, artist, and yogi. I use my business and storytelling skills to build a better world. My first novel, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, will be published in the Fall of 2017 by Thumbkin Prints, a children's and YA imprint of Possibilities Publishing Co. My creative career has stretched across Capitol Hill, Broadway theatre, education, nonprofit fundraising, health and wellness, and Fortune 500 companies in retail, media, and financial services. In every experience, I have used my sense of and respect for elegant design to develop meaningful products, services, program, and events to help people live happier, healthier lives. A recovering multi-tasker, I am a proud alum of UPenn (BA) and the Darden School at UVA (MBA). When not in front of my Mac, I’m on my yoga mat, walking my rescue dog, Phineas, traveling with a purpose, or practicing the high-art of people watching. I am proud to New York City my home, and I've been called the happiest New Yorker by friends and strangers alike. They're right. Follow my adventures on Twitter at and Instagram at
