Update: I now have an internet connection as well as plenty of writing to catch up on...
After a successful move to the North West side of Chicago...Steve and Saul came out to visit. A few pictures and an entry to come later. Side note - I feel like I have lost a limb not having yet had Internet service at my new place. If feel....well disconnected. For now, I've managed to pirate a connection by sticking my wifi antenna out the window and connecting up to my neighbors network. The only problem...is a slow connection and having to hang out a window. 1 more week...and ill have my own connection.
