chicago(land) is so cool

i came back to my old stomping grounds this weekend in the chicagoland area and im just going to say it — i want to live here so freaking bad. i do.

for starters, they seem to have WAY less snow than wisconsin. also, they have WAY more whole foods grocery stores (which sell tons and tons of vegan items). also, a lot of my friends live here. also, its super cool. also, i just like it because it gives me that happy feeling i used to have when i was like 16.

and YES things cost about 300 percent(ish) more here than they do in the rest of the world. but HELLO! they have 300 percent more stuff here! (see above note about whole foods).

and it’s not that i hate wisconsin (although i do hate snow), it’s just that i miss being in my old stomping grounds. with my old friends.

a lot.

go jesus! it’s your resurection!

im kind of obsessed with my stupid march madness bracket, so when i went out last night, i kept explaining to all the boys i met that i had picked wisconsin to go all the way and that i was pretty sure i was going to win.

and then one boy was like “why did you pick wisconsin?”

i was all “because i LIVE there”

and he was all “oh. ok. i love brett farve”

and then we went to dance and he was trying to be clever and shouted “CHESSE-HEADS!” while raising his hands in the air.

but i thought he said “JES-US!” (it IS easter) and the tootsie-roll remix in the background made it hard to hear him.

and then my bff (who was dancing nearby with a boy who had a super cool iphone) was all “he said cheeseheads!” and i was all “oh! i thought he said jesus!”

so she was all “she thought you said JES-US” to the boy.

and he said “i did! i said cheese-heads” (clearly he couldn’t hear over the tootsie roll remix either).

and then my bff said “NO! JES-US!” and she did the crucifix in exaggerated motion to explain.

and then the boy said “OH! GO JESUS! EA-STER!” and he waved his hands in the air like he just didn’t care.

im thinking the whole thing makes up for the fact that i didn’t go to church today.
