A little over a week ago, I had the pleasure of enjoying a rare mini vacation in Chicago for a few days. I don't know why I'm not there more often (besides having very little free time); I love the huge city, the diversity that Grand Rapids can only dream of offering, and the many friends I get to see and make while there. One of those friends is Victoria.
We met in my freshman year at Grand Valley State University after she recognized most the bands on the patches stitched into my jeans while walking on campus. We share a lot of similar interests, including but not limited to punk music and Magic the Gathering, and it was awesome to chill with her then, whether on campus, in local coffee shops, or at house shows. While the (inevitable) hangovers prevented us from hanging out more last weekend, it was great to catch up for a day. \m/
