So, I'm in Chicago.

Got in yesterday, unpacked everything into storage, and working on finding a place to live with my friend Colleen. I'm a little exhausted—the last couple months (6?) have been a bit crazy. I'm enjoying a day or two break until saturday when we go look at apartments.

Colleen lives with SAIC folks. Meeting them has been useful, and tomorrow I will probably go explore the city a bit more. Finding my internal compass is still on the list of to-dos, and realizing what a difference this move is going to make will certainly take some time.

Last time I was in Chicago was good, but cold. Now it's warm out and somehow I feel less like going out and establishing connection with the city. I think I'm just tired, though, and I'll get over it soon and want to leave the apartment desperately to discover what's all about.

Welcome, nice to meet you Change.

Hooray for you! Chicago is open and sky reaching and it'll wait all year and sing all day for you. You have plenty of time.

Sing all day, and all night. Tonight I'm going to Live Band Karaoke with an old internet friend.

I'm not rushing, just eager. : )
