NO, i don’t have a job (yet).
i’m going on a CROSS COUNTRY ROAD TRIP. with my MOM.
[i love you mom :-)]
we need to bring all my crap home from utah, and there’s no way it’s fitting on an airplane in 2 pieces of luggage. i got out of it the first time around, so now it’s time to pay my dues.
i’m getting really excited, though. my mom is pretty much leaving our chicago shenanigans up to me, and i’ve found some other great stops along our route home.
but first off, chicago. want to know the first place i thought of to go to in chi-town?
the CHICAGO BOARD OF TRADE. i’m such a nerd.
it’s like the game “pit,” but in real life. lots of loud angry people trading wheat, sugar, coffee and other good stuff. my econ prof. told us about it a few months ago and i got really excited (this is before i started bombing my exams). i may be almost failing econ, yet i’m still excited for this. ironic?
the next stop?
the kansas city (missouri) public library.
well actually, the garage. the library’s garage is painted to look like the spines of popular books, and it includes some of my favorites! my mom is equally nerdy and will most likely be excited about this, too.
last but not least…
it’s shaping up to be an excellent trip (as long as my mom and i don’t kill each other by the end of it). if you have any suggestions of where else i should go, let me know!
