I made an impromptu trip down to Chicago this week with my very good friend Eva. She is way more familiar with the city than I am, and guided me on the train and around the more popular parts of the city. I would love to spend so much more time with her before I pack up and leave, but this day really made me appreciate her being in my life and I can't wait for her to come visit me in California this winter.
After seeing State Street and Millennium Park, we decided to go to the Shedd Aquarium for the afternoon. This place blew me away because I've never seen dolphins, whales, or sharks in real life before, so seeing them all in one place was unreal.
Once we got back to Milwaukee, we got vegan ice cream and met up with another good friend of mine and the girl he's seeing. We made a quick trip to Bradford beach as the sun was setting, and it was a spectacular end to such an awesome day.
