Subject: school in the city
As I rode the brown line to take katie feldt back to union station today, I realized yet again the wonderful/amazing/fortunate opportunity I have of going to school in the city. Not only that, but Loyola is a great school. Yeah, I was a little jealous after walking through Northwestern's campus last weekend, but when I think about it, we have two brand new buildings, the highest application rates Loyola's seen in a long time, a great campus in the heart of downtown chicago, pretty awesome professors, and the LAKE. Katie visited yesterday, and the day could not have gone better. We saw all these famous paintings at the Art Institute, checked out some modern stuff at the Museum and Contemporary Art, had a delicious asian dinner at Big Bowl, looked out over the city from the 94th floor of the John Hancock building, ate some pretty kick-ass cheesecake at the cheesecake factory, experienced an accordian bus straight from Michigan Avenue to Loyola, and ended the night wih an hour long game of catchphrase with a group of friends and random students. I'm really glad that Katie liked all my friends and that they all liked her. I'll be glad to see all my old friends this summer, but to be honest, I'll miss all the great people I've met here. Aside from the people, Chicago is one of the greatest cities on earth. I once said that if you're bored in chicago it's your own fault. Yeah, I believe that. There's always something going on. With 3 million people, every day can turn into an adventure. I've been stuck on campus, caught up in work and worrying about grades. Hanging out with Katie made me fall in love with the city again.
