Just so you know, I got back from Chicago safe and sound. Basically I wish I could live there because it's a fantasticly awesome city with nice people! Unlike New York where nobody smiles and everybody wears black. Yes, I do realize that I make a very large generalization, but it's true nonetheless. Anyway, here's the trip in pictures. Maybe one day I'll post full fledged stories. Just know, summer is coming so that possibility could become reality. :)
The above bridge is my Anne bridge. If you've seen the second movie, you'll know that's where they kiss, and if you know me, you'll know that's where my first kiss will be. . . I'm hoping. This bridge gave me even more hope! Minus the graffiti and chipping paint, of course. :)
I told Lauren to take a picture of me because I felt like I was in the ghetto, and I was a little scared. So, naturally, we had to capture the moment.
I realized after the fact that I had stood in the spot where Channing Tatum stood in The Vow. So, I've kind of met him now.
This is the place where deep dish pizza was created. Yes, it was very delicious. :)
I think my favorite part of cities are the street performers, and so whenever I see them I get super, super excited! We saw these guys on the very last day. As in, we were waiting for the subway to go to the airport. Earlier in the week we were riding the train over to the University of Chicago and this guy got on the train explained what he was doing (which was to get money) and then started to do this rap. It was amazing! I wish I had gotten a video of it, but I didn't. . . sorry.
Those dots are the most amazing things I've ever seen! I got really excited when I saw this painting. Basically, my stomach twirled a little.
Every day I've been home from Chicago, I've wanted to go back. One day I'll live there, and it will be amazing! In the meantime, I'll just be here, doing my chemistry homework and not having anytime to blog which results in you lovely readers being neglected. In that meantime, get ready for the next thing I need to post about: Prom. It was a good time!
