The good life

I'm kinda liking this unemployed no responsibilities no cares thing.

I unpack a little each day (a lot initially, now it has slowed to a trickle. I need to finish my kitchen, hang my pictures, and sort through my papers/books)

I work out with my friend (who is a personal trainer at my new gym 6 blocks from here. She is kicking my ass into shape, and free personal training is the best kind. The gym is huge, it's close, and it's right next to Whole Foods, so I can enjoy their salad bar after my workout. Perfect.)

I go to baseball games (White Sox-M's weekend before last, Cubs-Cards this past weekend. My friend and I went to Thursday's game at Wrigley. We scalped OK tickets for $40, but met a guy during the rain delay that provided us with a free upgrade to much better seats, 10 rows up from first base. Wrigley has so much character. I still can't believe it's only 6 blocks away from my apartment)

I meet up with friends new and old (it's nice living in the same building as my friends from WSU. It's also nice meeting their friends, I'm definitely going to have a good cross section of GSB and non-GSB friends. I also had fun meeting my classmates at last week's happy hours, and look forward to meeting more this week. Plus, I've been meeting some really fun guys. I had a date last Friday and I have a date tomorrow. Both are fun guys, although I don't see a future with either, but they don't take no for an answer when they know I'm not gainfully employed!)

Why am I in Chicago again? Oh, that's right...school! T-minus 21 days...

Be careful with GSB boys--they are crafty

Looks like you're having a blast! It’s great that you’re starting to make friends both inside and outside school. This way you’re not too likely to OD of the people you hang out with.

On another note, already 2 dates and you just moved to town recently? Wow, you must be doing something right. Maybe that free personal training is already starting to pay off...lol.

Well, I don’t know much about Chicago but I’m sure they’ll give you plenty of work to do really soon so keep enjoying the free time you have right now.

JP--Both are non-GSB boys. No fishing off the company pier, right?

KV--There is almost too much to do. I definitely can't get it done in 3 weeks, but I'm going to give it a shot.

I'm so happy you are having a great time! Enjoy it while you can. And of course write all about it as much as you can. It'll be ages before we hear from you once you start school and get super busy!

Btw, do you like Chicago? Lol! Wait for another 4 months before you answer that! See, I'm from India and I never saw snow in my life until like 2 years ago. So I love it!! :-)

And What the heck is that comment about? Invasion of your space I tell you!
