Old apartments sometimes shift in the cold so that you can’t lock your deadbolt.
Sometimes the outer entryway to your apartment is frozen shut.
Sometimes CTA operators don’t change the sign on the train they’re driving to say that they’re actually going the opposite way.
Sometimes I still feel lost in this city after two years.
Sometimes I want to go out and participate in everything, go to every show, every meetup, every wine tasting, every gallery opening, every single informative talk – exhibition – performance – free movie night – open session.
But there’s so much. And I’m so tired and cold.
