I just wrote partially tipsy postcards courtesy of the MillerCoors people. I really wanted to finish my beer but we have cheese to attend to. (I want more beer- omg alcoholic).
I just want some cheese!
Today, we’re going to Wisconsin! Yesterday: We went to the Field Museum, rode a bus to Roosevelt and Michigan, had to walkwalkwalk all the way to The Art Institute of Chicago; before entering, we went to see the CloudGate Bean and also took photographs of the Boeing Gallery and Fountain. (Oh! And photographer!Jesus and I exchanged photographer!smiles, ohou). (Pfft, I still don’t feel...

A certain someone would know what I have to say about this, but that doesn’t really matter now.
"It'll come," they say.
I’m still trying to fix myself.
I figured out the ending to INCEPTION. →
swoozie: So, you know how everyone thinks that the Top is his totem, but in the beginning he mentions that it’s actually Mal’s? Well, you see, if it’s not his totem, then it’s not going to properly work for him. Cobb’s totem is his WEDDING RING. Whenever he’s dreaming, he has a wedding ring on because, as he says, in his dreams, they’re still together. In reality, he’s not wearing a ring. During...
A day full of exercise and shame!
We went to the SkyDeck! 103 stories above the streets, and the fastest elevator ride, ever! (The photo in my previous post was really late in posting.) I need to think before I react. I’m an awful daughter. I can’t believe… After the SkyDeck, we went to Taste of Chicago. I finally got to try chicken and waffles! It was heavenly. So was the rainbow cone, homg. Afterwards,...
Distant Worlds: Chicago
I was so, so nervous. I was positively shaking with excitement, the words coming out of my mouth one on top of the other as I strained to keep myself together. (Having had to pee and the “No public washrooms” sign probably contributed to that, but I digress.) I yammered on and on about, “These are my people,” and “Wow, we can dress quite decently if we...
Day 3 of Chicago, I think?
We didn’t do too much today, and I’m still planning to write about my whole Distant Worlds experience, but I’m pretty much ready to pass out. We were planning to go to Taste of Chicago but my tita (aunt) planned for us to take the Chicago Architectural Boat Tour so we did that instead. I enjoyed it and took so many photographs (oh, the triangles!) and got lost in glass and...
You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.– Maya Angelou (via kari-shma)
So we had to leave because I’d kept my family waiting. Actually, were we on our own, mom would have waited til 1 with me, because she’s awesome. But there’s more to say. In all, I’m grateful for the experience, and I know the man was just doing his job. Still, I was disheartened. But happy to have been there. More tomorrow- I won’t let this sully my Chicago...
You know, it’s sort of an ironic question. It points to the whole problem. If...– Jason Segel, after being asked the question, “You mentioned Paul Feig, and Bad Teacher is coming out six weeks after Bridesmaids kinda flipped the script on female-fronted comedies. Do you think there’s any pressure on the film to perform at the box office?” (via ONTD)
2:03 AM local time and I'm trying to import videos...
Time to sleep! (Trying to make room on my SD cards; should have done this sooner…).
Had my first cup of coffee for the day; caught the jitters early, haha. Looking forward to Distant Worlds today! (I am so, so excited, AHHH.) We’ll be going to the Randolph Street Market Festival today. I think it’s funny because it’s like what we enjoy going to back home, only on a much larger scale. Can’t wait to meet interesting people, eehee.
loveyourchaos: I’m lonely because I don’t know who I am.
Roughly 2 hrs away from Chicago! … I can’t believe we’ve driven this far, haha!
Good [foggy] morning, Georgia! Chicago, we'll see...
We’ve found somewhere to rest our feet; I’m sniffling and it’s cold. We’ve survived day one and we’ll see how else everything goes. It’s been a rough start but I think/hope/pray it’ll only get better from here.
Things are going well! We’re still in Georgia and heading towards Atlanta. We might push on to Tennessee, but we’ll see. And though I hold all of my friends dearly, I feel awful for having to rely on all of them at once. This trip will be a test of my inner strength and to develop some kind of self-reliance. I have to believe I can do this!
There was a bright moment in the nauseating darkness. It was the past. It was the past.
My skin is prickling. My stomach is roiling. I can’t.
We might be going to the last place I’d ever wanted to see again. And I don’t think I’ll be able to handle it. Excuse me while I vomit. I’m growing so uncomfortable. I can’t I can’t I—
We’re only slightly past Orlando and I already have to remind myself not to jump out of the truck. I wasn’t arguing, how was I to know there were different kinds of cigarette lighters in the car? They look the damn same to me. Trying to use coping methods. Right now, I’m just going to play dead.
And away we go! I’ll be posting from my not-smartphone every so often…
We're going to depart soon!
I just need to pack a few last minute things, eat breakfast. clear my mind. I’m excited but very sleepy; I stayed up late trying to pack whatever I could. I’d wanted to have a discussion before we left but who knows, maybe we’ll just have it along the way? Anywho, all of you take care, and perhaps leave me a message to come back to whenever we regain le internets? Thank you.
