I write these blog posts because obviously with every good story you hear there is a chance there is a bad one lurking underneath. In other words, I have not drunk the Kool-Aid and do not believe any city, town or village is without its problems, and that definitely holds true for Oak Park, IL. I cannot even hear this village’s name without being a little bit disgusted or nauseated. The headaches per square foot that have arisen due to this village’s existence is abnormal to me, I have never experienced this type or amount of bullshit anywhere else on this scale.
I mean I have been to Cleveland, Duluth, Charlotte, Lexington, etc., and none of given me as much grief as this small ass piss ant village. So, you may just come back and see no new blog posts or you might see a ton of them, I cannot lie. Nor can I guarantee a certain amount of production. With that said I will just say I have a couple more blog posts to put on here, just so everyone knows that shit is still the same, here in Oak Park, IL.
When I think of enjoying myself Oak Park, IL is nowhere in my thoughts, I can’t wait for lollapalooza and other shit like the Air and Water show mundane stuff like that to happen. So I can stretch my wings and have some fun, something I cannot do in tight ass Oak Park, il. I always have to remember to put that “IL” at the end because I do not want to besemirk any other decent community in the world called Oak Park.
I hate to even think that any other place would be compared or added into the discussion with Oak Park, IL. Therefore I would not dare to do that and be that offensive! I am really tired from the new job so it makes it harder to write posts but I really want to give people hope as summer closes that there is still a ton of shit to do so do not despair while be on Oak park, IL there is a whole bigger better world out there.
Honestly after finding a new job that got me in the heart of downtown Chicago I felt better on my soul. Because I am dealing more with the real world than the flakes of Oak Park, il it’s sad when Chicago makes more sense than one of its suburbs. You are supposed to be getting away from craziness when you go outside the city limits not going into it. But that’s why I have not posted that much to the Oak Park, il blog, looking for a job is a job with in itself.
Then once you get a new one there is that transition period with learning new things, and tighting to altering your budget to this new reality. At least this Korean air job is closer to what I went to school for, and I am not flipping fries worrying about how to pay for student loans while wondering how I am going to get my professional career off the ground. Oh well back to the grind.
I am sooo tired of shopping with the reusable bags in Oak Park, IL and Chicago that I have now restricted all my shopping to forest park or Berwyn, you know places that are not trying nickle and dime you for everything.
It does not help my disdain for this village and i allow any seemingly “negative” (notice the quotation marks) comments to be posted on this blog, mainly cause I am sick of hearing that it’s “not that bad”. No it’s not Syria where bombing is a way of life or the Sahara where there is a massive desert in which the temperature alone would make me bitch 24/7. But if you are trying to promote your area as inclusive or a great place to live or visit then follow suit in policies that are incentive driven. That make people want to stay or come here at this point who the fuck wants to be here and is not stupid, crazy, drinking the kool aid or all off the above?
