Weekly Whine: Public Transportation

Have you guys ever seen the Buzzfeed series Whine About It? There’s no grand illusion, the name says exactly what the series is about. Every week the host chooses a topic and essentially “whines” about it for 5 minutes.

While I try my hardest to be a generally positive person, sometimes you just need to blow off some steam and go on a rant. What better platform to do this than a personal blog? Maybe I’ll start a series about things that make me happy so I can bring peace and balance to this lil blog. We’ll see.

As the title suggests, today I’m going to do a little compilation of complaints about taking public transportation 98% of the time. I will be airing my grievances in a visual manner, and by that I mean pairing them with the perfect gifs.

That feeling when…

Your bus tracker was wrong, and you miss the bus by 20 seconds. There isn’t another one for 23 minutes.

How you feel when there is approximately 2 inches of free space and someone comes in with their giant ass backpack. PUT IT ON THE GROUND!

Weekend Recap Vol. 24

Buenos martes my friends! I hope your weekend was an amazing one. We had a bit of a heat wave here in Chicago.Twin & I took full advantage of the Spring-like weather by going for a morning run along the lake. Let me tell you: no one is more appreciative of unseasonably warm weather than a Chicagoan.

It was a pretty low-key weekend. Lots of walking, a little shopping, and a dash of caffeine #latteaddict. Fiance and I went to a new coffee place in our neighborhood. If you live in the area you should check out Bow Truss. The ambiance alone is enough to justify the trip.

It wouldn’t be a Sunday morning without waking up to a Lil Luna perched on my back. She is just the sweetest nug we could ever ask for! Saturdays are for exploring and adventuring, but Sundays are for working out, grocery shopping, and just getting sh*t done, so it’s nice to chill out a little bit before I run all my errands.

*Sigh* It’s only Tuesday and I’m already dreaming of the next sleepy Saturday morning.

Weekend Recap Vol. 22

Happy Tuesday guys! I hope you had a great weekend filled with laughs, tiny adventures, and your favorite humans. This past weekend was unseasonably nice in Chicago. It was sunny with a high of 45 on Saturday, and you better believe we took full advantage of it.

We started our day journey with a delicious meal in Ravenswood (yes, like the ABC Family PLL spinoff). I had an AMAZING naked burger (sans bread), and it was exactly what I needed.

It was our first time in Ravenswood, and I loved every charming street of this Chicago neighborhood. The blocks are littered with small businesses that sell all the pretty things you want but don’t need.

We stumbled upon the cutest little coffee shop called The Grind Cafe. I ordered a loose leaf coconut tee, and it did not disappoint. One of my favorite things about this little gem is their hand stamped coffee cups, can you see the blue fern on it in the picture?

We spent a little time wandering around this specialty grocery store that specializes in German cousine. I can’t wait to go back when I’m done with Whole 30 so we can get some German beer!

Ravenswood was so fun, and I’ll definitely be visiting this nook of Chicago again.

Sunday was business as usual: gym, grocery shopping, house cleaning, with a side of little Luna kitty cuddles. Doesn’t that picture of fiancee and Luna just melt your heart?!

 

Did you do anything fun this weekend?
