Dwindling Summer= Back to Chi!

Dwindling Summer= Back to Chi!

After 8 long, long, months I was ready to get back to the greatest city in America! I was incredibly eager to get back to Chicago and Loyola, since I hadn’t been there since December because of my trip abroad this spring semester.

My summer wasn’t too eventful, but it was very relaxing! It mainly consisted of work, work and more work. (Can you imagine how broke I was after roaming around Europe?)  I worked at a small breakfast cafe as a waitress, so that took up most of my time seeing as I had to be there every morning at 5:30.  Yep… 5:30 A.M.  I just cringed typing that.

Besides working, I spent a lot of time with my family and friends.  We took our annual three day trip to Cedar Point, the largest amusement park in America.  It’s basically Ohio’s claim to fame.  It has a ton of roller coasters, a water park, and it’s right on Lake Erie.  We go with all of my dad’s brothers and sisters, and all 16 of my cousins. Here’s the tallest roller coaster in the park, the Top Thrill Dragster.  It’s literally about a ten second ride. Straight up, straight down.  Terrifying.

The remainder of my summer was spent getting ready for Loyola.  I was on a mission to find cute decorations for my apartment.  I was extra excited for this year since I would be living right off Michigan Avenue- the most prime location!   I knew it was about to be the best school year yet.
