Sometimes, I really miss Chicago.

This weekend, I went to Starved Rock State Park to hike. I like to return every summer ever since and ex of mine showed me it. In 2009, he carved our names into a post on Eagle Cliff overlook, and I like to see if it’s still there. Turns out, it is and it’s just as clear as ever! Seeing it, I felt nostalgic and so incredibly happy about who I have become since I broke up with him, feeling totally comfortable doing everything on my own, being independent, and having experienced one of the greatest things in life: Love.

Yesterday, I came to the conclusions that I’ve spent this summer realizing how awesome I am to be around. Although I haven’t been as productive as I should have been, I have loved summer purely because I don’t feel guilty about not heading out and getting sloshed every weekend, and staying in watching a movie with myself (and my giant teddy bear) has been more than lovely. Everyone should feel this way about themselves.

At the end of my 14 mile bike ride out to those windmills. Absolutely beautiful ride, even though I had to go across a highway entrance.

The view from my new dorm room. Living here for a few days until I get to move into my beautiful house down here!

Rain, rain, go away, I want to ride my bike today.
