My Kind of Town

Chicago is.

After 6 months in Central and South America, I flew back home to Chicago. It was nice to be back for a bit, though, really, most of my days were spent doing absolutely nothing and every night was spent sleeping on a couch. But it was nice, and I did do a few things…

 

I watched some improv.

and a play.

I walked through Millennium Park…

Saw my financial panther (who pretty much told me he doesn’t care if I use all my money anymore.)

I came this close to adopting a kitten. Because…kitten!

I got really drunk off of fancy cocktails at Primehouse…

And went out to a slightly awkward party for a guy I made out with on New Years and never talked to again.
