The back way
Finally a blog post! This one is dedicated to the lovely Morgen in Iowa City, since she brought the fact that I wasn't to my attention. Miss you love bug! Here is the back way out of my 3rd story apartment. Complete with Gnomes, walking sticks, graffiti and of course brick walls and locked gates.
Life has been hectic since my move to chicago, between my new job, getting settled into my apartment, selling my car, catching the flu bug and looking for art gigs, I feel like I haven't had much time to do anything else. But things are finally starting to come together so I'll have more time for the things I like to do...
I'm so happy to be in a big city, even if the adjustment has been a bit rough. As my mom said to me, "Lauren, you're not in Kansas (ummm...Iowa) anymore." And it's true. I have definitely lost my sense of direction, familiarity, and the closeness I had in Iowa City. I'm excited for all of the opportunities that seem to be available and I intend to take full advantage of them.
