Blog in Place HOP

So I know this is a literary blog but I really liked the idea behind this hop so I felt the need to participate. It's called the Blog in Place Hop and it's all about places. Cool right?

Well it's a weekly hop it seems and it's being hosted by Robyn over at You Think Too Much. For this week's question, we're answering the following prompt:
What's the best and worse thing about the place where you live?
As you all should know, I live in the awesome city that is CHICAGO so the first part of this question is kind of hard to nail down...I guess the bestest (yeah, I'm using it as a real word, what?) thing about living in Chicago is that it really has everything and it's not tooooo big. Like New York scares me sometimes (even though I've been there more times than I can count) because it's soooo huge. But Chicago is like the perfect big city size and offers all the same perks. Everything is right at your finger tips.

The worst? Hmm, that's a tough one. I guess right now I'd have to say the weather. It can get really nice here but as of late it has seemed like Spring just refuses to show up (okay, this weekend was rather gorgeous). But all April long it was super chilly. It even snowed! I love my summers and a lot of the time Chicago likes to almost skip summer entirely. Boo on that!

Otherwise it's a great place. Come and visit! :)

Oh, and I plan on posting later today my last post for International Poetry Month. I know that it ended on Saturday but I just have not had a chance to get to it so...stick around!

Great post, and thanks for joining the hop! I feel the same way about Chicago...a big city that's not scary, and it's in the Midwest, so the folks are generally friendly. If it's any comfort, spring is really dragging its feet down here in southern Indiana, too. High of 49 tomorrow! That's not May!

What a fun post! I grew up in Chicago so I have a lot of fun memories. I think my favorite Chicago thing is the Taste. The food was always amazing. But the weather there really is awful! So humid in the summer and so so cold in the winter.
