Here's something other people aren't probably going to tell you: Chicago sucks in the summertime.

For one, it's hot. It's 84 out today and it's just getting worse and I'm sorry but I am a delicate Midwestern flower and I might do this every year but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Also, it's humid. I have not moved from my room yet today and I am still sweating. The thing about humidity is that is makes you feel disgusting, like you are too fat and sweaty and sticky and gross. You don't want to wear clothes if it can be helped.

But most of all, Chicago is fucking ugly in the summer. Yeah yeah, people will tell you otherwise but those people are deluded and high. Chicago is a giant slab of concrete, baking in the sun. Concrete in the heat is not romantic or poetic, it is just depressing. The city is stagnant, it's beige and desaturated in the summer. There's nothing green, no trees, just buildings. And what water and greenery there is feels just as stagnant and unappealing.

I might have to run back home to the suburbs just to save my sanity.
