Happy Anniversary!

Happy One Year Anniversary to me and my wonderful city! Though I had some major reservations about moving here, I am quite sure that I made the right decision and I couldn't be happier. I love so many things about Chicago. Here are a few:

*public transit- though it is very far from perfect, it is available and fairly efficient which is more than I can say about other cities in which I have resided

*the gorgeous and accessible lake shore harbors and beaches

*lake shore trail

*bicycle friendliness and Bike Ambassadors (and not just because my roomie is one!)

*Music Box Theatre

*Wishbone Southern Reconstruction Restaurant
*Chicago Diner
*Pick-Me-Up Cafe

*Intelligentsia Coffee

*charter schools

*Boystown and Andersonville

*Drs. Ann Russo, Beth Catlett, Allison McCracken and Francesca Royster

*the history and contemporary art museums- and the fact that all public museums have a free day for residents of the city!


There are so many things but I think the thing I love the most is just the feeling that I have living here. It isn't easy to describe but I feel very independent and comfortable... There isn't a word for how I feel walking down the gorgeous streets of Lakeview at night. I just love it.

Chicago. Great town. Good beer (Goose Island across from the Siebel Institute).

I've been trying to seduce a feminist into critiquing a memoir. Perhaps you'd be interested.
