Chicago, Day 2

Somehow I was able to sleep in late this morning. I would like to attribute it to yesterday being so busy of a travel day, but for some reason an hour and a half flight doesn’t seem to qualify. It felt really good though, so I shouldn’t complain.

Except for all of a sudden it was noon and I was just leaving the dorm! I went for a walk around the city- I was pretty hungry but wasn’t sure what I wanted. I ended up just shopping a bit and then coming back home to look into where I wanted to eat with better resources. I also thought it would be good to grab my book to read while eating, so really it made sense for me to run back home…

I ended up going to a place called Mity Nice. Let me tell you, it was mighty nice… I ordered a drink “Bee’s Knees” which was vodka, honey, and fresh squeezed lemon. It was so fricken delicious. For lunch I orded the acapulco salad, which again, probably the best salad I’ve ever had. I even took a picture this time:

I lingered in the restaurant for awhile and then went home. I didn’t get a lot of reading done, but enough to consider it a productive lunch. Once I got back, I took a nap. I love Sunday afternoon naps more than anything in the world. It was perfect. Except that I was a little cold, but I blame Joe for that. [I’m so used to him keeping me warm!]

When I woke up I accepted it was finally time to get kicking on my homework. Then I realized how much their was. Crap, I had a lot to do! Why were they all like “oh yes, here is your free day, but, bee tea dubs, here is an accounting book. Read the first three chapters by Monday morning!”? It feels nice to be back in the books though. The material is actually interesting (in a dry/mandatory sort of way). I like that I have my job that I can be all like “ooohhh… I get this.. I see how this applies!” It makes me definitely appreciate that I took time to work before considering school, and also that I decided not to accept admission to Carlson this fall. Another year will just make me that much more prepared (right?).

As a side note, I believe that definitely is the hardest word to spell. Not only do I spell it incorrectly each time I type it, but I also type it in such a way that Chrome can’t even suggest the correct spelling. Okay, time to finish this work and get skippin’ to bed!
