Goodbye Chicago, Goodbye [Cherry] Ride

GOODBYE CHICAGO
It's Monday night and I'm tired and heading to bed. It has been a long, emotional day of packing, moving stuff and saying goodbyes.

Tomorrow morning I'll be up at the Crack, leaving Chicago and heading east to DC. In many ways, this move has been a long time in the making, and yet even 6 months ago I wouldn't have believed it. The next 16 months of school will be an adventure. It will be intense, scary, (hopefully) amazing and a little fun. Over the last few weeks I've been alternately excited, nervous, sad, giddy, and petrified about moving back to DC and going back to school.

I'm really going to miss Chicago. The last 100 days have been so truly great; it has been the best summer of my life. When I moved back to Chicago 3.5 years ago, I don't think I would have imagined that I'd miss it as much as I already do. I'll miss the summers; the swimming at Ohio St. Beach; the different neighborhoods and festivals; the pizza; the salty and chocolatey smell of the Chicago River in Spring; the dirty hipster boys & girls; the late-night bicycle rides through River West, Logan Square and Roscoe Village.

GOODBYE [CHERRY] RIDE
As I say goodbye to this city and this chapter of my life, I'm also saying goodbye to this blog. I started the [C]R around the same time I moved back to Chicago, and I think it is fitting that I end it now too. For the most part, this blog has been a great source of enjoyment for me. 

The past 3.5 years have been kinda strange, and it has been great documenting it through this blog, and of course I've met some great people because of it. But since I haven't been blogging much in the last year, I feel like it is time to do something new.

Thanks to everyone who has stopped by and said hello.

I'm not giving up on blogging, I'm just doing it at a different location -- new life chapter, new blog. For those who are interested, send me an e-mail (cherry_ride@hotmail.com) and I'll send you the link.

Take care, Chicago. And take care, folks.

PROPER!!!

Hello!
Just wanted to see if you would contact me when and if you ever decide to move or delete this blog.
Reason being, my sister Cherrie passed away from liver cancer in August 2008. I started a blog in honor of her and for an annual motorcycle ride that we have to raise money for cancer research. I purchased www.cherryride.org and would like the blog title to go along with it.

I am definitely not "pushing" you for the blog address, just simply requesting that if you ever choose to leave this blog that you please email me first.
THANK YOU for your time.
Peace!

Mike
