C: Chicago!

I mentioned yesterday that I'm from Chicago.

Northside, represent.  Go Cubs!  Da Bears!  Jordan!  Corrupt politicians! 9.5% sales tax!  Strong winds/more corrupt politicians!  FEAST ON ITS GLORY!

Also, light pollution.  LOOK A STAR!  Wait, no, airplane.

I lived there for the first 30 years of my life.  I still consider it home even if only 3 of my friends and family still live there.

Why did I leave?  Most of my friends and family weren't even living there anymore.  Also, it's expensive.  Also, Adam doesn't live there.  He lives in small-town Michigan, which is where I live now.  And let me tell you.... I'm still trying to adjust, even after a year and a half.

  2. Wow, Chicago! Hope I could visit. Lucky you you lived there for 30 years! Cool.

    Oh, by the way, I'm a new follower, Dara!

  3. Good luck adjusting. Moving can be very hard on a person, I've seen people take many years to get over it.

  4. Living in the UK, as I do, it's sometimes hard to get the hang of the idea that somewhere in the same country can be so very different.

  5. I am an Air Force Brat. Home is wherever I sleep :)
    Sometimes I wish I could call someplace my home. But I'm so thankful for the opportunity to travel the world and experience different cultures. :)

    You'll get used it it. Promise. :)

  6. I can so relate to this post. Hopefully you'll get adjusted soon

  7. I've been to the Chicago airport. :) The city looks beautiful in that picture.

  8. So, fess up. Is the pizza really as good as they say? :)

  9. I've never lived in Chicago but always love visiting there. There's really no place else like it. You made me laugh about the corrupt politicians LOL.
