Every month that I’m living in this city, I am constantly reminded of how grateful I am to be living here. As cliché as it may sound, I often forget the amount of wonderful opportunities that surround me. I’ve heard it said again and again but how many people get to take the bus down Michigan Avenue to get to class? You may be reading this thinking taking the bus isn’t too thrilling but honestly, I’ve grown to love it.
Living here for almost two years now, this city has opened my eyes to so many things and helped me grow as a person in more ways than one. I came here from Cleveland, scared of public transportation and afraid of the world of communications, afraid to do most things on my own. Now I ride the subway by myself at 5:45am to get to work and I have encountered people I could have never met anywhere else but here.
