I spent my whole day in Chicago yesterday visiting my friend Hayley. It was definitely a fun way of ending my Spring Break.
When I first got there, I had to get out of my car and let Hayley take the wheel because there was only one parking spot at her dorm and it was a really tight parallel spot. In case I haven’t mentioned it before, I am completely incapable of parking properly. After it took her for what it seems like 15 minutes to get in the spot, we decided to walk around and see all the people dressed in green since it was St. Patrick’s Day. I forgot to wear green but thankfully no one pinched me!
After we walked around, Hayley had a dance receital with her dance team from Loyola at UIC so I went with her there. It was really fun seeing the team perform and might attend another of their performances next month! After the competition we all went to McDonald’s and then walked back to her dorm where we spent the rest of the night telling funny stories of the summer before!
It ended up being a really fun day and it made me more excited about summer since the weather has been so nice lately!
Here's the team on stage during their performance
Everyone is getting excited on my local news stations for St. Patrick’s Day and I feel like I’m the one who awkwardly isn’t. I think the only reason why I’m not excited is because I don’t have anything green to wear! That’s really funny considering the fact that green is my favorite color. So hopefully no one pinches me!
My friend Jessica wants to go to the St Patty’s Day parade in downtown Chicago tomorrow so I might end up doing that! The only thing that might prevent me from going is the fact that there are supposed to be isolated thunderstorms that day! I’ve never been to a big parade on that level so I do think it would be a really fun experience. So I’ll just have to wait and see!
Here’s a scene from my favorite Disney movie, “The Luck of the Irish.” They’re playing it on Disney this weekend so if I don’t go to the parade I’ll be at home watching!
