Happy New Year

Happy New year to all. Yeah, when I woke up the next afternoon it was a night that I rather not put into print nor take the pictures and place them on any social media site. With that said hopefully there is less aggravating bull shit thanks to this crappy burb this year or the rest of it. The traffic was great at 3am I wish Oak Park, il was like that every day but alas wishes are fishes.

We took a cab in case we were to be blitzed to drive one of the only smart decisions we made. But if you get home without getting mugged, passing out in a pool of your own puke, etc., You have won the gold medal for New Year’s Eve partying, drinking and stinking.

Again, I do not remember too much about Nye in Oak Park as I spent it downtown with friends, but what I do remember was that the traffic was great. Probably because of the puritan atmosphere of the village that is projected but it was dark and dead in the village making the rest of the trip back easy and less expensive. Happy New year indeed.

I hate feel good stories no matter what the season

I really get bored looking at the “feel good” stories on television or the holiday bull shit. Not that I am bah humbug or am disrespectful towards Christmas I just hate being told that I have to be positive because it is a certain time of year. Ugh just leave me the hell alone in my misery if that’s where I want to be.

One thing I do not own and activity I will never participate in is the ugly sweater contest. Never. I am just like that lol. But I am in a get it done mode, and I am still drained I guess emotionally too from graduation I finally slept a whole eight hours Saturday. And even though it was Friday shit ain’t stopping me from working on the next steps of moving career wise and location wise.

he smiles from the fam made it all worth it, however I am still a bitter bitch. And if I want to I will be the dictionary or urban dictionary’s definition of a petty bitch if I want to. There is no need to change the formula of what keeps me successful and that is a plate of bitchiness and a side of saltiness. No matter what the holiday.

Happy Thanks giving from Oak Park, IL blog!

For those of you celebrating thanksgiving: Happy thanksgiving!

For those of you not celebrating it for any reason I do not blame you. I have tons of work to do for third module projects and final projects that going to an uncomfortable get together with family to eat dry turkey and to look, not eat, green bean casserole is definitely out the cards.

I simply do not even have the energy to commit to their nonsense and finish my degree plan. Its either focus on the end of two years’ worth of work, or dealing with another year of relatives asking “aren’t you done with school yet?” Sorry, but I trying to get somewhere on life lol and that in the end is what I will be thankful for.

Oak Park, IL -Fourth of July: Best place for actual fireworks in this area is in Berwyn, not Oak Park, Il

Oh Man, I as I said in a previous post I hope Oak Park, Il had a better fourth of July parade. Mainly when you think of Fourth of July you think of “fireworks” that is not in the competencies of Oak Park, IL. The video I posted on youtube.com should show it is great for kids and that is about it. Not for drivers, adults (well maybe pedo bears) but not the explosiveness display most people like to see. Well, I did not go this year because of that, in fact, I went to my friend Sarah’s place in Berwyn, because Berwyn, Il has fireworks!

We were on the rooftop of her apartment building watching a clear view of the fireworks from Morton High School on Harlem Ave. I think she took video stingy ass. I was getting lit and trying not to fall off the damn roof. But it was a better alternative than running all the way to downtown Chicago or being with a ton of kids and pedos trying to get my drink on.

Therefore if you want to see a really Fourth of July celebration and see fireworks but do not want to get shot in Chi-Iraq I recommend this avenue of celebration INSTEAD of the one in Oak Park, IL if you are of the grown-up variety, Got kids though? stay in Oak Park, IL

Please note: I do know Oak Park, IL has fireworks at their high school as well, but I am factoring in also the times that were given: 7 pm (Berwyn) vs dusk-ish (Oak Park, IL); then adding the factors of traffic and transportation and things to do in that area afterwards. Oak Park, Il is really lacking in those areas I have mentioned in the latter.

Fourth of July parade in Oak Park, IL

Hey just in case you want to take in the Oak Park, Il Fourth of July parade that is on the 4th at 10 am click on the link below for more information. That post briefly goes into where the parade starts and ends, the parade starts at Ridgeland Avenue and Adams Street.

The fireworks or fireworks display is when the fuck ever “dusk” is, and in the football stadium of Oak Park and River Forest High School.

Click here for the tons of information that is provided by the village of Oak Park, IL (that is sarcasm) link on the link for the marvelous job the poster of this information did: http://www.oak-park.us/our-community/special-events/july-4-parade

Happy Memorial Day from the Oak Park, Il blog!

Memorial Day in the United States was first started to honor American Civil War veterans in the Union, then extended further to all those who fallen during military service during World War 1 but It did not become an official holiday until 1971!

I know right, WTF??? Remembering people who have given their lives for freedom and basic human is very important, and today is a day that gives us all a chance to remember them and be thankful.

These are some links that discuss more about Memorial Day:

While you are partying it up on Memorial Day thank a veteran!

On President’s Day in Oak Park, IL

On President’s day I slept, because I was emotionally drained from the day before, I stayed in the whole day, got my tea and sat here to write some posts for the blog. I was dreading coming back to my apartment in Oak Park, Il I was off from work, and I took the day off from school and even going outside in Oak Park, IL. Driving through the area on Sunday, early in the morning was stressful enough. The area is crazy as hell to get through as is, on a Sunday morning but there are a couple of churches in the area so the traffic gets kind of crazy due to all the parents wanting to drop their kids off for Sunday School. I remember those days when I was innocent before I was even warped by Oak Park, IL.

When I got up and told Sarah fuck the shower and the breakfast I have to get back to the apartment and run through Oak Park, IL like Harrison Ford in Raiders of the Lost Ark (the opening scene)! I hate to be so dramatic but she went through the village a couple of times to visit me or go to Mama Thai or even going up Harlem Ave to get to the Northwest side. Hence, Sarah definitely understood. One of the problems I had was the amount of runners that had one kid in a big ass stroller, one kid barely keeping up with them while they were walking a huge fucking dog, meanwhile, they could not get across the street. As they all finally got across the street I rolled down my window because it was soooo nice out, and yelled: “Stop multitasking!” I mean geez their multitasking could get their kids ran over if I was not paying attention due to texting or was one of those road rage freaks you always hear about on the evening news.

But this did not happen once but like four, FOUR fuckin times! You could not script this coincidence in a movie the audience would have found it as unfunny as I did with this stupid repeating joke occurring over and over in a five-minute span during the film or Television show. Usually, a 24-minute drive was now an hour long as I was trying to get the village of Shit Park, IL by side streets. After life was done testing my patience I got home showered ate some Cocoa Pebbles cereal (yeah I am an adult!), wrote and caught up on my Netflix then slept. Oak Park, IL is so draining that it wasted my weekend and my free day off, ugh, I really hate this place.

Happy Valentines Day from Oak Park, Il blog

Happy Valentine’s Day from the Oak Park, IL blog! I hope you have a great day with your significant other or others, side chicks, side dudes, whatever…

Already celebrated with my boo boo on the 11th Saturday because as soon as it gets nice out the idiots in Oak Park, IL come out to play, it was nice on Sunday so I do not want to chance dealing with the stupidity of Oak Park, Il today!

I have not seen that many places have a Valentine’s Day special for couples or anything around here and that is why I, thankfully headed out of Oak Park, Il to celebrate. Had a Steak at Long Horn’s steakhouse in Berwyn, IL with a Sweet Baked Potato it was tasty and non-eventful because I went wayyyyyyy early.

Therefore, I came back home in less idiotic traffic! So have a happy day and try to have a nice time i.e.: avoid Oak Park, IL

Valentine’s Day around the corner and there’s nothing to do in Oak Park, Il

Well, since there isn’t anything really about Valentine’s day around Oak Park, IL I looked up the History Channel’s take on the holiday so that hopefully you guys can come up with something for your loved one. You can print up hearts and cut them out, laminate and make decorations that way. Also, you can try P-interest to see if there any self-made decorations or gifts you can make if you are on a budget or just show some effort to the person you are giving the shit too.

Here is the History of Valentine’s Day as presented by the History Channel: http://www.history.com/topics/valentines-day
