A beautiful day for a run!! Did I say beautiful? I meant terrible and hot and humid. My goal was 10 miles and I made it to about. By mile 1 I was drenched in sweat and constantly had to stop. I've realized there's no point running in extreme heat. It doesn't help me at all. I met up with Kelly and Gideon to go shopping for his 1st bday! I got to push him in the cart while making farting noises. Not sure if other people found it annoying but other kids found it hilarious. I met up with AJ later at Long Room and met some of his college friends, most of whom I already knew. Plenty of cocktails and plenty of goofiness :)

A very ominous lunch break today as the skies turned basically black. Annnnnd then it sprinkled for about 3 minutes. I met up with Neil at Annoyance tonight to grab a couple drinks. Actually, 3 drinks. It's one of my favorite places to hang because you're always happy to see people and there's no cliquey feeling or arrogance. And also, there are 2 older guys with Hawaiian shirts that may be sitting at the bar with a beer.

Check out this dope ass sky. I visited AJ after work for some free yummy pasta. I'm poor until hopefully tomorrow when my last unemployment payment kicks in. Pleeeease! AJ made me a Moscow mule tonight that was WAY too strong so I fell asleep on the bus home and then again when I got home. I'm 37!

Lunch break in Tribune Plaza! Even though it's so freakin hot, I've been finding some shady places by the office for lunch before it gets too cold and we all have to stay inside and get depressed. And there's food trucks over here too! And a Whole Foods! But since I'm not getting paid for 2 more weeks, I should really go grocery shopping. Hehehe. Or buy good food every day and be broke. That's what I usually do. Because it's sooooo easy!

Last day in Michigan. It's been a really nice break from the city and a great way to end my time between jobs. We went to the pool again today and then had some brats for lunch and made our way back. As soon as we got into Indiana, there was so much traffic. But once we hit Illinois and even got into the city, it was smooth sailing. Tomorrow is my first day at my new job! Cannot wait! Also, very nervouuus.

Took a ride today in AJ's dad's jeep. So awesome. We drove through the state park and by the water and through what was basically the forest. Even hit some huge mud puddles!! We walked up the dunes and took some pics and then grabbed ice cream and more beer and headed home to grill and watch movies. Not bad!

Ran a few errands this morning with AJ and his dad. He had to fix something on his car and we stopped by this shop with all these amazing classic cars! Then off to the pool at his aunt's house where we swam and had pie! Yup, his aunt bakes everything under the sun and baked a pie just for AJ! (And me). Blueberry peach.....and it was DELICIOUS. We met his aunt and uncle for beers and dinner and then took a walk at sunset. Yay Michigan!
