In ten days I will be going on a vacation with my folks to Chicago! Why? Well, one there’s the famous deep dish Chicago styled pizza. Two, I was born there. Three, I have family there. Four, I’m a city person. Five, I want to see the colleges there. Six, did I mention they have deep dish pizza?
So I’m pretty pumped for this! I’m Filipino and as you know, Filipinos are like the Italians of Asia. I have a lot of relatives there, and because I haven’t seen them in years, I’m expecting to get bombarded with a million questions and stories…and filipino hospitality (aka FOOD).
I am a proud UCF knight and I will gladly wear various UCF apparel everywhere I go. Bought seven UCF shirts in the past week to wear for Chicago. I’m going to tour University of Chicago, Univ. Illinois at Chicago, and Univ. Illinois at Urbana-Champagne wearing UCF clothes. UCF is the second largest university in the country…that’s whats up! And plus, I’m an ambassador and an RA…I think I’m qualified to show off my school pride for sure! But seriously, I’m excited to tour the different schools there, and maybe even meet other RA’s from UIC, U of Chicago and UIUC!
I’m a foodie, so I am definitely going to be raiding every restaurant in Chitown until my wallet cries in pain…from all that Chicago goodness! That’s why I love cities, they have so much dining options!
Besides touring colleges and restaurants, I want to visit the various hotels at Chicago. After all, I’m a hospitality major so I want to see where I might be working some day. And for sure, I’m moving up north after college. I miss snow and the cold weather so much!
I want to visit the WIllis Tower (but like any true Chicagoan, it will forever be known as the Sears Tower to me). Then there’s Chinatown, with amazing food. Maybe go to the beach at Lake Michigan. Then the magnificent mile for some shopping. The Wrigley Field, home of the Cubs! And so much more!
I also bought a Canon Rebel T3i for the trip, so I will definitely be taking loads of pictures! So look out for a billion and one pictures that I will be uploading here!
