Day 76

Time is abso-poso-lutely flying by. its wonderful. i cant effectively describe how much i love it here. my need for moving is currently sedated due to my only being at my own place of residence a couple of nights a week. its positively lovely. and im having a chicken pot pie for dinner. which makes today the bestest day ever. =]

Day 68

Happy Halloween (every)one! im fully aware that no one is hanging onto the edges of their seats for every installment of this REALLY boring blog. maybe one day that will change. the boring factor that is, not the amount of people waiting ever so patiently. hmmmm maybe i should start a webcomic. maybe. or i can just start putting up some of my designs/ already made pieces.

ANYWAY my musings was not the point of this entry. it was to wish you a fun costume day. i was going to be a cute lil gumball machine, but it was out of stock and i didnt have ample time to make one myself. and this caused a sad. so an angel i am, again. pictures? maybe eventually. depending on if any come out to my liking.

So, have fun. be safe. check your candy for razor blades yadda yadda yadda.

Day 64

man does time ever fly. im still loving it out here. its making me think. question all of my beliefs. hopefully im changing for the better.

it has been officially decided (by me) that this is my home base. no matter how much traveling i do in my life time. this is home. every time i see a little house wedged between big buildings all i can think is O_O WAAANNT -i blame Stuart Little-

im not really sure why, but this seems ideal to me. SO this is a goal for when i decide i am enough of a grown up to actually start looking into buying vs. renting.

Day 26

God, has it really been twenty six days already? yes (i counted twice). honestly i've probably spent a third sleeping at friends' places haha. ive learned the public transit system better, gone to a grocery store that is so hispanic that even the radio is on a spanish speaking station, seen a rather creepy manikin (a 'young' girl with a bunny head) - during the day it isnt so bad, but at night? all alone? when youre kinda lost? damn. its pretty freaky. ive also participated in an epic robot apocalypse themed game of tag. unfortunately all i have for souvenirs from that adventure is a couple of picture sized fliers, a purple ribbon, and two huge blisters on my heals. but it really was quite fun.

ive been going to story time things with my friends lately. They are called Here's the Story and Grown Folks Stories. They have both been a ton of fun so far. The epic game of tag was actually hosted by the Here's the Story crew. again, mucho funness. after Grown Folks Stories the other day we went out for noms. i found an enjoyable sign and took a picture.

at first you think "20 tacos??? who would want to buy 20? how often did that happen before they felt the need to put the sign up???" BUT they were on the smaller side and SUPER good. which made the 20 taco limit more understandable.

"This is too small to be this tasty"

had to get the same one. twice ;]

Day 2

Today is day 2 of official Chicago living. And it is amazing. And its funny, you'd think that i'd miss the stars, the crickets, the hills, the winding roads. But i dont. Not terribly anyway. I notice the lack of such things, but i dont really miss them. I'm all too happy to replace them with traffic lights, sirens, skyscrapers, and grids for roads. I love it here. I went to navy pier and millennium park today. Saw the trees that were being held back by iron bars. It reminded me of a song

"They took all the trees
and put them in a tree musieum
and theyre chargin the people a dollar and a half to see em

now now now dont it always seem to go
that you dont know what you got till its gone
they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot"

I have no idea who sings it, and i dont really feel like looking it up. But i do really like it, and its prolly not even right haha. And thats that. I'll edit this post later and put in some pics of my day (which was a date by the way, for anyone who cares about my personal/love life). But ya, pics, soon.

ok, sorry its been so long! i know its been over twenty days since i said soon for pics. (even though im quite convinced that no one actually cares haha)

Day -2

Two days until Chicago.
Two days until my life starts.
Two days until who knows.
And I absolutely cannot wait.

I'm partway through packing. There is crap EVERYWHERE! I don't know where half of it came from! When did I end up getting so much STUFF????? I'm sure this is a common problem with other movers as well. I must learn how to throw things away. Give things away. Get rid of superfluous items. I hope to have a better handle on this skill in the future.
