I had the pleasure of walking from U St to Whole Foods with Kalsoom. For 10 minutes, we briefly discussed invest2Innovate, a social enterprise she created to support entrepreneurs starting in Pakistan.

Now, like my friends’ exes and people I’ve randomly emailed once, Kalsoom shows up on my gchat buddy list. Thank goodness because I never would have come across her bucket list tumblr otherwise.  Kalsoom created a bucket list and is really checking things off. She’s done more in the past 2 months than I have in my 2.5 years in DC. Time to create my own list and saddle up! This is why you never spring clean buddy lists (or maybe I’ll justify just about anything)
