We signed a new lease over the weekend and while daydreaming on the train home tonight I realized something. I’ve been living on the edge for last 3 years and will continue to in the coming year.
First, I lived on the edge of Bloomington. We were 10 miles from campus and the drive sucked, but the place was really nice and the rent was cheap (thanks dad).
Next, we moved to the edge of campus. We were closer than some classrooms. It was awesome, but expensive and the landlord sucked.
Then, we lived on the edge of Wrigleyville in Lakeview. The true boundaries of Wrigleyville aren’t defined, but according to the map I’ve always referenced for Chicago neighborhoods, we are on the edge.
Now, we are going to live on the edge of Lincoln Park near Old Town / Near North. This has been another stupid observation while daydreaming 🙂
