Road Trip

I have driven from MD to Utah 5 complete times. I am currently on number 6, but this time I am completely on my own. No one else in the car and no caravans. Most of the trips I have been the sole driver so driving the whole time is not hard, but having no one around during breaks or meals is a little different. I wanted to do this trip on my own and I don't regret it, but I know now that it is not fun to have to ask for one at a restaurant for dinner :( Oh well.

My trip has been easy and problem free (knock on wood). I spent a few hours this morning walking around Chicago, my future place of residence. I am determined to live there for at least some time in the near future. I waled around Navy Pier and then walked to Millennium park and Grant Park. It was beautiful and very relaxing. And I even got sun, even though it is a square on my neck, i'll take what I can get.

I made new friends this summer that I didn't expect. Some that I will be able to see at school and some I won't. But I am so grateful to them for making my summer worthwhile. I don't think they know how much I needed them, I guess I should tell them.
