What I'll Miss About Chicago, Part 1
I know I talk a lot of crap about wanting to get the hell out of Chicago...but what you must understand is, there is nothing personal against CHICAGO. It's against the weather...and a few people! Lol...but other than that, I'm a proud Chicagoan, and I will be yelling that in L.A.
And lately I've begun to think about what I'm actually going to miss about my dear Chicago (besides a few people...select few! Lol) One of those things is definitely the beautiful Sears Tower (and hell no, I'm not calling it the Willis Tower cause that just sounds lameballs). I remember going to the Skydeck as a kid and my brother and me laughing at my mom because she was so scared! At that age, I didn't have any real fear of heights, so it was just funny to me!
But what I really love about it is it really makes the Chicago skyline so beautiful. It's always the main building you see! And I love that when you're lost on the north side, you always know where to drive to get back south! You can see that bad boy from miles away! And I used to get lost pretty often on the north side, coming from my agent's office or from an audition! Once, I got really balls lost with my mom and the kids in the car coming from visiting my agent on the north side. Keep in mind, I had never driven there before, and my GPS was acting crazy. So I get turned around, and there we are, in the middle of the afternoon near some high school on Chicago's west side where a bunch of teenagers were getting out of school! That was scary, not knowing where I was! But as I called Bry on speakerphone in a panic, I looked up and saw the Sears Tower, and I said "Okay, I know where I'm going now!" and I found my way back to the expressway! So, thank you, Sears Tower. It also helped me once I got lost coming back from Second City late night after my acting class! Once I saw it, I knew how to get back to the 55.
One day I'll come back and take the kids up to the Skydeck. You know, before they really develop fears.
