dc.description.abstract This thesis is a short coming-of-age novel following the life of a twenty-three-year-old girl as she moves from Minnesota to Washington, DC and desperately seeks to become the worldly, venerable person she imagines as her future self. But, as she struggles through graduate school (where her project is to help the state lottery reach out to younger players), begins a love affair with an older military officer (who holds more at stake than she first thought), and tries to navigate her own psyche (which is constantly pulled between her head and her heart), she realizes her plans—and life—may not be as simple or straightforward as she first thought.
