The Drive To work

I went a really large portion of my life never having to consistently drive a long way to work every morning. The closest I was ever to it was the summer before my junior year when I worked at FS…

I Failed

I took the mortgage licensing exam for the first time this past Friday, and like the title of this column states, I failed it. I didn’t fail it terribly, I needed a 75 to pass and I fell just short…

Lunch time.

I grew up in a school system that puts a really heavy emphasis on the lunch portion of the day. Schools build their entire day around the lunch period. There’s even lunch recess, until you get too old and they…

I Need to Know What?

I just graduated college, as mentioned in previous columns. That means I took and earned 120 college level credits. That was enough to earn me a bachelor’s degree. I know a fair amount about a very small sector of all…

The Return

I went to my first Cubs game of the year the other day, and I was able to walk there and back. Chicago is finally starting to feel like home. I also went to Whole Foods and it took me…

The Comfort Zone

As aforementioned in previous columns, I recently made the move to Chicago Illinois. There are a lot of things that come along with the move to a new area, or a new city, and one of them for me was…

Aside

I’m a freshman again, but a real life one this time. I’ve spent one day in Chicago and I’ve already made the mistake of walking way too far to a place and had to pay to Uber back, because there’s no way I was about to do a 40 minute walk twice. It’s a very similar feeling to that of being a freshman in college. It’s a really weird, surreal feeling. Everything is new again and I have to start over in a sense. College this time is the job, and the people who are employing me are my professors, and the final grade is me keeping my job. I think it’s also the same in that a lot is going to change from the time I’m 22 to 26. I’m going to go from never having a full year of employment to 4 years of it. I think the thing that I’m going to love the most are all the different and new restaurants. That was arguably my favorite part of Bloomington-Normal as well, so I’m glad that I’m continuing on to a place that has great food, and a good variety of it as well. If anyone has any recommendations for places to try in Chicago I would be open to trying them. Another plus up here is this time instead of a Division 1 college team I get to step into a city rooting for some of the best professional teams in the business. It’s nice to get another 4 year look back on life and seeing what you did well, and seeing what you need to improve on and making the next 4 that much better than the previous.

I said I was done, but maybe I’ll do a few more, I’m a pretty indecisive person, so it was probably kind of dumb to say that I was done for good, so I guess I’ll do a few more…
