my most chicago moment thus far

after 2 and a half weeks. i have reached my pinnacle thus far of being a chicagoan.

this afternoon, i rode the chicago ave. bus in the city of chicago, while listening to the song, "chicago" by sufjan stevens.
i love this city.

give me a call. come visit.

so, my heart, and apparently now, my brain have been left in chicago.
being back in virginia is this lonely, miserable existence as cloudy and hazy as the restaurant last night when the power went off.
i have friends here and i enjoy being with them and being around them, they're great people. but i feel as if i have no direction, and no map to help me find my way. I'm sort of wandering aimlessly around the town where i grew up.
my direction, my guide, my best friend, and my other half is in the midwest. i know when i'll have myself back, but will i be able to last until then?
i love you gordie, and i'm sorry for my forgetfulness.
i hope you can forgive me.

pretty sweet.

jess has been accepted to a PhD program at the University of Illinois at Chicago. which is one of the top 25 schools for philosophy. i'm very proud of her. and i'm coming along for the ride.
we're heading to chicago after the summer. i'll have finished my recording school by then, and i'm ready to go and find myself a job as a recording engineer in chicago, where, apparently, there's a big market for that sort of thing.
i'm really really really excited about it all.
