And this right here? What I loved most, she had so much soul.
I guess this was my very first stop for my exquisite roadtrip. I spent a couple days here, and boy, was that a great visit.
The more I come there, the more I consider living there one day. We’ll see.
Someone else has fallen in love with Chicago! Happens every day in countless ways.
So the scandal—the real scandal—is that 501(c)(4) groups have been engaged in political activity in such a sustained and open way.
This article needs to be circulated. The President shouldn’t give in to the ridiculous spin being put on this issue by House Republicans. To qualify for this tax break, organizations are supposed to engage in promoting social well-being and not political activism. The IRS has the right (the duty) to investigate them.
I have been in Chicago for one whole week today and I am making sure that I live it out to the fullest! I have created a some what bucket list and I am checking off things every day….
1. I have found a job
2. I have been to Millennium Park
3. I have been to Chinatown
4. Managed to get to the Signature room looking over the city
5. I have ran everyday through the most beautiful park I have ever seen
…….I have narrowned down my tattoo idea and I have a job now so there is a high chance I will be coming back with one! Im super excited and also every nervous….
I am loving everything about this place and the city life that I do not want to leave. I can not wait to move here soon and start an amazingly new chapter to my life!!!

En estos “tiempos de colera” y de injusticias sociales…
Sometimes even a sad truth makes you laugh.
Plaza Major, Bogota Colombia
En Chicago te pueden multar hasta $500 por echarle comida a las palomas; en Bogotá te venden maiz para que las puedas alimentar en la Plaza de Boívar. ¿Cuál de estas políticas será la correcta? No lo sé, supongo que depende de mi humor. De todos modos siempre me encantan las palomas en la Plaza de Bolívar.
Patricia Highsmith by Dmitri Kasterine
“Her hands are enormous: square, powerful, and as large as her head. They are gnarled and nicked from her woodworking and her gardening. ‘Worker’s hands,’ says one friend. ‘Butcher’s hands, stranger’s hands,’ ventures a neighbor. Her thumbs are extraordinary: huge curved digits, bent out naturally at what appear to be unnatural angles to the rest of her fingers.” —Joan Schenkar, from The Talented Miss Highsmith: The Secret Life and Serious Art of Patricia Highsmith.
Her novels scare me because they draw me steadily in to the narrative until I start to become one of her characters.
