Oh, how can we forget the infamous Michelle Rhee and all the cheating accusations, the changing laws, the firing of teachers and staff, closing schools, and making the lives of DCPS kids miserable.

Sing it with me now! "Let Eastern Motors put you in a car today! Let Eastern Motors finance it all the way!"

6. Half your iPod was filled with go-go music.

You had everything from UCB's “Sexy Lady” to TCB's “Bait” to Chuck Brown and The Soul Searchers's “Bustin’ Loose”.

RIP Chuck.

10. You knew all the D.C. slang.

You're truly from D.C. if you've used any of the following in a sentence: "jii", "fakin", "bama" or "bamma", "kill" (no, it has nothing to do with murder...), "mug", "moe", "jonin", etc.
