Yesterday was one of those days when I usually wake up late, work out and binge watch movies. So I decided to hit up my friends invite them for dinner or late night coffee. It was kind of spontaneous and I’m glad we were complete last night. We went to a restaurant where there was a nice view of the surroundings, chatted up a bit self update and a little more girl gossips. Last night was a very familiar and homey feeling with the girls. I hope to do more of these.

Thursday night which means last night stay in Springfield! I just actually got home not too long ago. My co-workers and I went to visit another co-worker that lives here to celebrate her post baby shower. She’s a Chinese so all the food served were different kind of Chinese pica pica which was interesting. I had a good time getting to know my family here in Chicago. After that, we separated our ways–as to there are two staff houses–and here I am now. Tomorrow, I plan on taking the driver’s exam first thing in the morning–just the written exam first. I’m doing a scan on the rules of the road of Illinois after this entry. So Imma say buhbye now!
Was supposed to write about my 21st birthday but I guess that could wait til I get back in Chicago for the weekend.
I’m here in Springfield for the whole week. I think I’ll be working here until my last second in the USA lmao WHY! Just a week before my birthday I was told I’ll be working outta town and I said yes–do I have a choice?!–so yeah all my plans got cancelled for my birthday. But hopefully when I come back this weekend, I’ll do something for my birthday yay. So I guess this would be my home for the rest of my working days in Illinois cause you all know about my one month grace period after this internship. I actually haven’t thought of where and what to do with my one month grace period but I’ll figure it out.
For all those who doesn’t know where Springfield is, it’s the capital of Illinois–that’s right! Chicago isn’t the capital of Illinois. Springfield is much quieter compared to Chicago which is why I’m still adjusting. It’s kinda sad of course especially if you’ve gotten used to the busy city life. I think what they have here are mostly government establishments and there’s not much to see really except for the Lincoln thingy idk much yet lol. But since I’m staying here for a little while, I might spend one weekend and get to know the city!
That’s just about it for now! But I also can’t wait to tell you about my 21st birthday. It’s just that I don’t think the story is finished yet cause I haven’t had a proper celebration so let’s wait for it and then I’ll tell ya. 🙂
I’m feeling better now. Thank God.
Hooray for today! There are two reasons I’m happy. 😀 First of all, today’s Friday which means salvation! I never thought I’d agree to my mom about this but given any chance of no work days I will totally spend it on my bed sleeping or watching TV. I work five days a week, hell, I need a break. Wow. I’m starting to sound like an #adult. 🙂 Another thing is the Girl Scout Cookies finally came in today. I ordered like three boxes of cookies and as soon as I got my hands on them I devoured it lol. You may not know it but I’m more of a cookie girl than a cake girl. 😛
Have a fun Friday!
• Finished my first class a little early so I…
• Went to church. Spent almost an hour there waiting for my next class.
