Waiting for Summer

Yesterday it was 82 degrees. I looked out the window of my apartment and could see boats on the placid Lake Michigan and families and pets wandering the streets. The skyline was ablaze with sunlight reflecting off glass; I drew in a deep breath and sighed. Ah, Chicago.

Today its 46 degrees and I'm back in my office. But I love thinking about that season that will soon — hopefully — be upon us: summer. This summer, I'm going to have a taste of what it's like to be a single gal in the city; my boyfriend is hightailing it to Guatemala to take classes in K'iche Maya for a month and a half. Chicago in the summer will keep me company though, and I've already compiled a list of things to do to take advantage of the city at its best:

Breakdance classes, $95 for a six week class
• Go to concerts at Millennium Park
• Have picnics in Millennium Mark
• Start riding a bike
• Decorate my apartment
• Eat al fresco
• Summer nights in Wicker Park
• Continue with my book clubs

Have any other suggestions for me?
