There were a lot of things I was able to do in Chicago that I can’t do here, like, for example, socialize. Back home, I had close female friends to go barhopping with and I knew really cool bands whose shows I could go to. None of that happens now. But what I can do here is go to the beach.
Don’t try to argue that Chicago has beaches. I used to argue that too. I know, the whole lakefront is a beach. I know about the rule of no construction east of Lake Shore Drive. That shit doesn’t matter, because Chicago beaches are a joke. Dirty, grimy Lake Michigan cannot compare on any level at all to the Pacific Ocean. The beaches here are beautiful and pristine and endless. Chicago beaches just don’t even count.
