I am living in Chicago for the next 4 to 6 months. I have a contract here that sounds like fun (i.e., I get to learn stuff and the people I'll be working with sound great).
So I have rented a place on Harlem Ave. just south of the El.
I spent my first night here revisiting my old home in the Schaumburg area, buying some stuff at Ikea and Meijer and eating real pizza.
While I am a little tired from the drive, I am happy that I am able to spend some time around here. I just wish the contract was in the summer and not the winter.
