Chicago, IL 2.22.2020 // Went back to Chicago for 24 hours this weekend. Showed my husband around the UChicago campus and it helped remind us of some big priorities we have in life. A shift to a different perspective was so necessary. Since we both used to live in the city, the weekend was meaningful to both of us.
We spent the majority of our time in river north, lincoln park, and the loop, revisiting some of our favourite hang outs and sights. Didn’t stop by bronzeville where I used to live, and didn’t really feel the need. Coffee at Dollop and donuts at Firecakes didn’t disappoint. We spent most of our trip in Wisconsin, however, to see my husbands brother’s phd defense.
The trip was just one day after I attempted an admissions test for the program I really want to study. I admit I set my goals a little high, and the exam was pretty challenging, but I’m still hopeful that I have what it takes.
