Hey folks, long time no see.

Well, it's time. Finally executing on my plan to get out of this rotten state of IL. What a cluster#$%@. Will be saving 5 digits in SIT alone. Plus, those winters - brutal.

Say hello to TN !
Got my iPod 1st Gen loaded with country music, ready to go.

So long, Chicago. I will miss you, but just a little.

Illinois is indeed a cluster, though I’ll admit an irrational fondness for it. Happy trails!

Illinois sucks. Roads in Tennessee are a huge win, by themselves. Have fun and get a car that handles.

Nah, it's just a shithole. Chi-raq is fun but the crime is insane. One of my classmates moved down there with his fiance, and was gunned down at a bus stop due to a case of mistaken identity/gang initiation driveby. For a short while I worked at a design consultancy in Chicago, and my windows were smashed out during the day, someone stole my laptop, cintiq, and basically everything I owned for doing freelance work. The rest of the state is a flat boring shithole of cornfields. Oh, and no winter, just cold/grey/darkness.

That state sucks.

Well, this accelerated from cheese joke to murder in record time.
