I'm really enjoying my time off between jobs. In addition to sleeping in most days, I've filled my time with fun activities.
I spent 4 days at Comic Con, which I've already blogged about. I've also been doing some writing on my novel, which I hope to finish during NaNoWriMo this year. On Tuesday, I visited Bachelor's Grove, and old cemetery just south of Chicago that is supposed to be one of the most haunted places in the country. I went during the day, and I would imagine the place would be creepier at night, but I really wasn't impressed. I was more afraid of snakes, spiders, and mosquitos. But I took lots of pictures:
Wednesday, I attended Jazzin' at the Shedd with some friends. My favorite part was the amphibian exhibit. One little cutie came up to the glass and posed for me:
The last couple days have been spent cleaning and organizing around the apartment. Unfortunately I wasn't paying attention while assembling some shelves this afternoon and sliced my finger. All is well, but I'm taking it easy for the time being. Next week, plans include visiting the Art Institute, doing some outlet shopping for work clothes, and lots of reading.
