Familyyyyyyyy I got moved to today!! Omg when I tell you it has been too long hence my excitement. I was so happy I even wanted to tell my mum looool
He was actually alright looking you know. He was some African dude from work, but yeah I’m not gonna give out my number as of yet without sounding…
I KNEW IT. IT WAS YOUR FAM.
I’ve Caught Up My Blog. Still Gotta Upload Some Pics, Videos & Tuesday, Wednesday & Today’s (Thursdays) Post.
Now Gonna Watch Scandal & Sleep.
Monday. Monday. Monday. I Got Another Text Off Landis Asking Me On Date Number 2. Ahhhhh! Ok So I Was Annoyed For Two Reasons. Reason Number 1; I Was Still Very Much I’ll So Didn’t Feel Like Going Anywhere (He Did Offer To Bring Me Soup Or Anything That I Needed). I Should Have Said Some Company But I Wasn’t Looking To Get Him All Excited & I Looked ROUGH! Anyways Reason Number 2; I’m Going Back To Crappy Old England Where My Love Life Is Non Existant & Where All The Guys Are Like Dry Toast. Lacking Pazas, Spark, Spontinayity. SOMETHING, Surely You Can Understand. It Has Taken Me 20 Years & A Trip To Chicago To Get My First Date & Constant Attention From The Opposite Sex. Ok Im Exaggerating A Little. I Have Had A boyfriend. But It Doesn’t Count To Me. I Was Young & He Was A Dweeb. (He’s Looking Pretty Fly Now Tho) LOOOL. Not Gonna Lie. This Trip Has Been A Huge Boost To My Already ENORMOUS Ego. (For Those Of You Who Know Me, Will Sense The Sarcasm.) But It Has Given Me A Confidence Boost, Which Is An Added Bonus To The Trip Of A Life Time. So I Should Be Seeing Landis Again On Thursday For Another Date & I Hope We Go To That Improv Class Cause I Really Enjoyed It. Today Was Pretty Slow. Didn’t Do Much Again. Tried To Get Some Rest. I Was Initially Planning On Going To The Art Institute But I Couldn’t Move From My Bed. I Did Some Work Then Texted Muriel To Find Out What The Plan Was Cause I Was Planning On Going Into The Office On Tuesday. So Luckily They Were Putting Together The Closing. So It’s The End Of Their Programmes Till The Summer Term So The Teens Get To Showcase What They Have Been Up To & What Not. So I Planned On Going Downtown To Drop Off The Booklets I Had & Pick Up The Other Ones. Time Is Ticking And I Need To Make Sure Ive Got All The information I Need To One; Write This Dreaded 5000 Essay & Two; Complete The Task That I Need To Complete. Scandal Helped Me Settle Off To Bed Nicely.
I Woke Up Nice & Early & Got My Ass Ready. So I Woke Up Feeling. Little Odd & Thats Cause I Was Still A Little Tipsy & Disorientated & I Was Coming Down With A Fever. 9am Came & I Headed Down To Meet Donna. Ah, It Was So Good To See Her. It Felt Like A Life Time Had Passed. So On The Car Ride Over We Filled Eachother In On How Our Week Had Been & She Told Me That She Had Read My Blog (IF YOUR READING THIS ONE. HELLO DONNA 🙋) - I Brought My Camera This Time So I Could Get Some Proper Pictures & Stuff. The Weather Was A Little Rubbish But Hey. So We Went Through Evenston Which Is Where We Will Be Next Saturday For YEA Evenston Art Fair!? I Think Thats What It’s Called. It’s Real Nice & Pretty Round There. Makes Me Wish I Studied At North Western. U Wonder If its Too Late To Complete My Last Year Here? humm. I’m Gonna Look Into That. (I Just Currently Don’t Wanna Be Or Go Back To BSA).
We Got To The Arts Center And Set Up & There Was A Naming Ceremony Going On On The Floor Above. This Ceremony Looked So Extravagant, Like They Parents Went Full Out. I Should Have Tried To Get Some Pictures. Anyways Back To The Art Class. The First Group Came In & They Still Remembered Me Thank God. LOOL Or That Could Have Been Awkward. Last Time I Saw Them I Had Braids In & Now I Have My Own Hair. LOOL. Difference Number One. It Was So Upsetting To Think That Thats The Last Time Ill Get To See Them. Out Of All The Classes That I Help Donna With That One Is My Fave. I Got A Couple Pictures Of Them & With Them Which Was Nice. & My Little Artist Yaratzy (I Think Thats How You Spell Her Name) Well She Gave Me A HUGE Hug Before She Left Cause She Realised That She Wouldn’t Be Seeing Me Again. THAT NEARLY MADE ME CRY! That & The Fact That I Could Tell That I Was Coming Down With A Fever. LOOOL
Before The Second Class Donna & I Headed To The Coffee Shop To Try Get Our Energy Levels Up. Between The Both Of Us There Was A LOT Of Sneezing Going On LOOOL. I Hope The Kids Are Alright.
The Second Class Came & That Seemed To Go Incredibly Fast & Suddenly It Was Time For The Last Class. Attakis Came To Join Us For This Class Cause His Grandparents Were Off To A Wedding. He Is TOO CUTE. It Was So Great Seeing Him. It Put A Genuinely Hug Smile On My Face. This Class Is Always The More Chilled Session Cause The Kids Are Older & Know How To Draw Better Than Me So I Kinda Take It As My Opportunity To Chill & Do Some Drawing. One Of The Students Drew Me Something Which Was Nice. I Got A Pic Of Her As Well.
Oh How Could I Forget. I Got To Also Speak To Jess & Hass In Kenya. As Soon As I Heard Their Voices I Had The BIGGEST Smile On My Face. Hearing Their Stories Made Me Proper Excited For Them. Really Can’t Wait Till Were All Back Together. Surprisingly Miss A Couple People.
Anyways After The Class We Went To Meet Donnas Friend Who Owns A Shop In Downtown Highland Park & We Went To Dinner At… YES YOU GUESSED IT Michaels. Cammon We Couldn’t Go Anywhere Else Id Feel Like I Was Betraying Or Cheating On Michael’s. LOOL. I Got Some Shots Of The Place On My Camera Which Is Pretty Cool. After Dinner We Said Goodbye To Donnas Friend & Headed To Target To Pick Up Skyrim For Attakis. Oh Cool Fact. That Target Car Park Was Bouncy For Some Reason. Like It Was Actually Bouncy. LOOL Cool Right?
We Then Went To See My Little Baby Domingo. I Actually Missed His Little Face, Oh & Everyone Else Of Course :). I Got Some Snaps Of Him Too. It’s Like He Knows Who I Am. I Always Manage To Make Him Smile Somehow. Sarah’s Mum (Domingo’s Mum’s Mum Or His Grandmother To Make It Less Complicated) Lol. Well Yeah She Was Kinda Confused As To Why I Was So Good With Him. She Thought I Worked With Kids. LOOL I Wish. Nope Ive Just Got A Huge Family & I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kids. They’re So Innocent & Cute & Can Do No Wrong. It’s Amazing How They Come From Cells, Then Somehow Squeeze Their Way Out A Tiny Hole, Then They Grow & Learn &Become Fully Grown Citizens In Society. Life it’s So Weird How It All Happens Right. I Can’t Wait To Have Kids. Well I Can Because I Need To Be InA Financially Stable Place But At The Same Time I Can’t. LOOOL.
So When We Left &Were Heading To The Car I Heard A Little Rummaging In The Bushes So I Got A Little Scared. Please Try & Guess What It Was…
It Was A DEER! No Word Of A Lie. Casually Running Away. The Sight Of It Scared Me Even More Cause I Was Like Where Did It Come From. What If It Wanted To Eat Me? LOOOL. It’s Fine I Was Just Being WAY Over Dramatic. Lol. Donna Dropped Me Home & Gave Me Her Arts Institute Card So Im Gonna Head There Later This Week.
I Got Home At 9:30 & At This Point I Just Wanted To SLEEP! I Was Shattered And I Was Feeling Rather Feverish By This Stage. As Soon As I Got In Jim Was Like Were Leaving In 30 Mins. Waaaa! It’s Danielle’s Birthday, I Couldn’t Miss It. So I Jumped In The Shower & Got Myself Ready. We Didn’t Leave Till 10:15 Cause I HAD To Make Sure I Looked Somewhat Better Than I Was Feeling. We Picked Her Up From The Theatre & Headed To Emerald Loop, Some Of The Cast Members Also Came To Join Which Was Nice. We Got Something To Eat & Just Ordered The Shit Outta The Bar. LOOOL. I Used My I.D & Got In. I Think The Guy Kinda Felt Sorry For Me. Lol. Either Way I Got In. Don’t Really Remember What Time We Left But I Remember Getting A Taxi & Then Getting Home & Skyping Natalie, Its Perfect That India Is 10 Hours Ahead. Cause When Im Going Bed She’s Half Was Through The Day. LOOOL. Anyways I Don’t Remember What We Spoke About BUT I Do Remember That She Spoke To Liz & Danielle. LOOOL. All I Remember After That Is Waking Up Feeling HORRID. I Also Found Myself On The Floor. I Guess In My Drunken State I Didn’t Have The Energy To Set Up The Pull Out Bed. How Unfortunate. Lol. I Woke Up & Danielle Begum Taking Care Of Me & Liz Gave Me All These Cold & Flu Tablets. I Chilled With D For A While & Started Watching Scandal Which May I Say I Am HOOKED ON! D Left Around 2 To Catch Her Flight To The Uk For Jack’s Dads Funeral. (R.I.P) - At This Point I Wanted To Go With Her So My Mum Could Look After Me. LOOOL. I Was Have A Big Baby Moment. I Spent The Rest Of The Day Feeling Sorry For Myself & Watching Scandal. Oh & It Was Mothers Day Here In The States. So Happy Mothers Day.
Friday I Didn’t Really Do Much. I Got Some Work Done Cause I Had Been Slacking & Taking This Whole Working From Home To A Next Level, Like I Had Given Myself A Holiday. LOOOL. Yeah So Work Had To Be Done. I Did Some Shopping, Came Home To Cook & Skype My Homies. I Spent Most Of The Day Just Banging Out Work, I Was Supposed To Go In But I Thought Id Get More Done At Home Which I Did. I Also Found Out That The Red Line (Train Line) I Get To Work Was Derailed. Like The Train Came Off The Track. Mate The Train Goes Above Ground Level. Imagine I Got On That. God Knows What He’s Doing. I’m Just Tankful. Anyways. Anyways Jim & Liz Got Home Around 7 And I Had Had Like No Human Interaction ALL Day So I Went A Little Cray When They Got Back. Ahaha. Jim Made Me This Orange Juice & Rum & Sprite & Gin Drink. I KNOW IT’S A LOT. I Secretly Think He Might Be An Alcoholic. Looool. Anyways We Drank & Played Just Dance Which Was Pretty Cool & Energetic. Liz Was Terrible At It. No Coordination At All. Looool. And After Drinking Like Two Glasses Of The Concussion That Jim Mixed Up For Me I Could Just About See. So Jim & I Played Mario Which I Was Still Bad At Cause I Was Wasted By This Point. Around 11 Liz Headed Out To Her BF’s £ Jim & I Headed Out Down The Road To Have A Couple Drinks With His Friends Which Was Cool. It Was Nice To Get Out Cause I Had Been In All Day Doing Work. After Drinking A Pitcher Of Beer Which I Really Dont Like Cause Its Tastes Like A Sweaty Mans Pit, I Was Gone. Ahaha. It Was Also Past Midnight By This Point So Was Danielle’s Birthday. We Left The Bar & Headed To The Off Licence & Picked Up A Bottle Of Their Finest Tequila (Patron) *SideNote* I Also Bought 2 Bottles To Bring Back To The Uk With Me. WAHOOO & Anyhow They Tell Me I Can’t Bring It Back Ill Blates Drink Both Bottles Cause That Shit AIN’T Cheap, But It Sure Is Good. We Got Home & Danielle Was On Skype To Her Husband To Be & His Family (They Were Singing Happy Birthday To Her) TOO CUTE RIGHT! *SideNote* IM BUZZING FOR THE WEDDING. GOT MYSELF A DATE, SOME PLANS & THE PRESIDENT OF JAMAICA HAS RSVP’D. YES THAT’S RIGHT. LOOOL!
Anyways We Ran In & Started Singing & Dancing To Happy Birthday For Her. It Was So Much Fun. Mainly Cause We Were Wasted. Then We Took Birthday Shots With Her & I Gave A Little Speech &Gave Her An Extra Bday Present & Early Wedding Gift. We Stayed Up Ti Like 3 Then I Headed To Bed Cause I Was Off To Highland Park For The Last Time In The Morning.
I Went Shopping For Some More Bits & Bobs For My Nephews Cause They’re Like My Kids & I Like Spoiling Them Obviously. I Also Stopped Off At Barns & Nobles To Do A Little Work & I Didn’t Realise That It Was Attached To A University Campus (DePaul) So It Was Rammed With Students. There Was This Cute Guy Who Was Like Oh Can I Help You Find What Your Looking For. And I Was Like No Thanks Im Good & He Was Like Is That Cause You’ve Found It. With The Cheekiest Smile EVER. So I Guess He Thought I Was Looking For Him. I Couldn’t Help But Laugh Tho. So He Wanted My Number But I Had To Explain That I Was Only In The States For Another 2 Weeks So There Wouldn’t Be Any Point, After Speaking To Him For Another 10 Minutes He Finally Gave Up And Told Me That I Would Have Been The Person To Complete His Life. I KNOW Thats A Lie But It’s Still One Of The Nicest Things Anyone Has Said To Me. Anyways In The Middle Of Me Shopping I Got A Text From This Guy Landis Who Is Lanicia’s Brother. Lanicia Is Also An Understudy In The Same Show As Danielle And She Used To Work Where Im Interning. Small World Right? Well I Met Both Of Them On Monday At The Opening. Also Just Gonna Drop It In So You Know What Im Working With … Landis Is In The Navy. Yeah I Know. *Brushes Shoulders Off* Loool. And He Is The NICEST Guy EVER, Like A Proper Gentleman. Anyways Back To My Story. I Got A Text Off Him Asking If I Wanted To Attend An Improv Class With Him That Evening. Ok So At First I Was Like Ah Yeah Of Course. Then He Was Like Ok I’ll Come Pick You Up From Your Apartment At 8. That’s When I Realised That It Was A Date. You Know What. This Was My First EVER Date. And Im Glad It Was An Improve Class And Not Like a Meal Cause I Think I Would Have Said No. LOOL. Ive Never Been To An Improve Class But The Whole Experience Was Awesome, I Didn’t Feel Any Pressure. So It Was An Interesting 2 & 1/2 Hours. The Class Was Great. The People Were Awesome & I Kept Catching Landis Starring At Me On A Sly. LOOOL. Yuck. It Was Too Cute. Ahahah. We Were Gonna Go For Drinks With Some Of The People From The Class But I Had To Be Up Early The Next Day So We Headed Back & He Dropped Me Off. Ok So This Was Awkward Cause I Was Standing By The Gates Of My Apartment For Like 5 Minutes Whilst I Rummaged Through My Bag Looking For My Keys. LOOOL & He Was In The Car Watching To Make Sure I Got In Safe. Looool. It Was So Embarrassing. Ahaha. Typical Me. Anyways That Was That. Oh Also Before I Headed Out For The Date I Got Home To Find Jim In A Good Mood Cause Some Of His Clients Who He Represents (He’s An Agent) Got Picked Up For Major Shows Which Means Major Money. LOOOL. So He & I Made Margaritas. WAHOOO. I Can’t Remember How We Did This. I Just Remember It Was A LOT Of Liquor. So When I Left For My Date I Was A little Tipsy. AHAHAHAHAH.
When I Finally Got In I Had The BIGGEST Smile On My Face & I Also Had Jim, Liz & Danielle All Waiting To Hear How It Went. LOOOL. It’s So Cute Cause Its Like Were All This Cute Little Family. I Really Am Gonna Miss Them LOADS!
Sadly Leaving Chicago In 10 Days. However I’ll Be Returning To The States In 85 Short Days.
2013 Has Turned Out To Be The Year I Begin To Write The Story Of My LIFE!
Talk about leaving it on a cliff hanger 😳
