Warm-weather blues

21 05 2009

There are mainly 3 things that annoy me during the late-spring/summer time.

  1. Allergies. – Mine are only seasonal, but they suck.
  2. Getting “too hot” – Is a 74* dry heat w/ breeze too much to ask?
  3. My bedroom – Ventilation sucks to my room, so it gets hella hot in there. I have fans and such… but it’s not as good as some delicious A/C

Springtime in the Chi.

5 05 2009

It’s getting warm, it’s getting nice, it’s a double-edged sword.

It’s starting to get really nice outside, and that brings some awesome stuff in Chicago and it’s surrounding suburbs.

  • Playing pick-up basketball in the park
  • Women in those short-shorts and skimpy tops
  • Random outdoor fun
  • Car-Season
  • Bike-Season
  • Hot mom’s
  • Hot co-ed’s
  • Hot aunt’s
  • The sun not setting at 5:30pm

Not-so awesome stuff during spring.

  • Allergies
  • Allergies
  • Allergies
  • Rising gas prices
  • Allergies

Spring>Winter… especially when winter has lasted for 7 months.





Time for Spring Cleaning!

29 03 2008

Oh man, where to begin. Even though this cold Chicago winter has not yet let up, it’s time to start cleaning up around the house.

My “new” bedroom is in shambles. It used to be my Grandma’s room, then guest room, and then an impromptu storage closet for all the other crap we didn’t want in the other rooms! I had been sleeping on a foam mattress for 4 years, and I decided that I needed a real bed again.

This new room is full of old furniture from when I was a kid, and a lot of stuff from my sister. Knockoff Louis Vuitton purses, hats, books, and weirdest of all… a huge bag full of underwear. Right now, I kind of have it so that one half the room is mine, while the other remains messy. I need to clean up both sides… sigh.

Cleaning, rewarding in the end, but annoying during.
