The other day my good friend Keira wrote a post called, This is What’s Awesome. At a time when holidays are far off in the distance and the city is covered with a dull layer of fog, it’s sometimes nice to just have a little fun (if even by way of a blog post) and remember some things that make you smile.

Having dinner with your friends is awesome.

    Blogs are awesome because we learn personal views on so much.
    Also Chicago is awesome (at least most of year).

    Do you know it was colder in Chicago yesterday afternoon than the North Pole! Of course you Canadians could try harder to keep your frigid air to yourselves.

    The site is awesome
