The need for parking spaces in Oak Park, IL

I think that the village needs to eliminate some of the long large lawns in Oak Park, Il in high traffic areas and places where parking is tough. Just to adjust for the needs of this area if I am thinking then most likely the village officials have thought of it. I do not see that ideal picture of the picturesque village staying in tact in the new future. The need for parking is immense and traffic is just insane, plus the village is constantly looking for ways to make money hand over fist.

This would be a great way to do both, ease travel issues and make money. Although I see residents flipping out there may not be any other way to have a way to ease the stress on the finite resources the village has nor come up with creative solutions that actually address issues that face everyday residents. There are other suburbs that have created the face in parking in multiple places in their suburbs so why can’t Oak Park Il?

I don’t think it’s an issue of can it be done but rather if there is a desire to do so if people would be willing to do away with a couple of feet of their lawns. I believe as crazy as that sounds and as major of an issue that it would be it could be a possible solution. I am not saying it is THE solution but it could be one that serves the needs of the village the most.

Oak Park driving in Broadview, IL

Okay I was in Broadview the other day going to the super Target as I was driving through the massive parking lot I got behind this slow ass minivan just strolling through the parking lot and I was right behind her. Ugh god the misery this bitch brought to my lead foot, and speedy little car. Just strolling through the parking lot and then got to one stop sign and just sat there. Sat there. I had to honk my horn to get the bitch to move! And when she did it was very slow, me and the other cars behind me were barely holding it together.

The car behind me was swerving left and right to see if there was a way around both of us and I was throwing expletives at the windshield. We got to another stop and again she sat there I had to lay on the horn like wtf?  She finally moved like a turtle turning into an opposite lane, so I laid in my horn. That is when i noticed the Oak Park “night” sticker in her back window truthfully this bitch needs to permanently park this shitty minivan forever.

My point about this story is that no matter I go in the Chicagoland area the shitty slow ass drivers of Oak Park, Il follow me. It is not just an epidemic contained to that suburb but follows you no matter what. It is a mentality that is ingrained into these idiots very soul. There is nothing that can be done to somehow extract it from their routine. When these idiots have the wheels, they abuse it for the rest of us obeying the speed limit. Obviously, this is the reason people move to Schaumburg or Oak Brook because each time I am in these suburbs the traffic, the drivers move around those streets just fine.

So therefore, it is a cultural thing, that is not easily dismissed and something that needs to be retrained retaught and readjusted, yes all of the above because it is annoying and dangerous to have these fools just strolling through the neighboring suburbs and streets driving like this. I hope that police departments in the neighboring areas simply pull over or stereotype anyone with an Oak Park, Il parking sticker in their back window when they are driving like that hopefully that will be the first step in stopping this stupidity.

Oak park Il blog I enjoyed Black Friday and Thanksgiving by myself

Ah Saturday without a project to do I finished up the portfolio class main project, blog and career plan project for the next two weeks freeing me up to deal with the stupid bitches in my other class. I did not go anywhere for thanksgiving and it felt great! No pain in the ass relatives, over the top judgments just kept my nose to the grindstone and worked out all that crap to clear the way for a simple graduation. I had talked to a bunch of people on Skype but left it at that. I walked outside to take out the garbage and realized there was no one on the streets!

In Oak Park, Il! So yeah I got in the car and cruised to the local gas station filled up the old gas tank and enjoyed driving around without a bunch of idiots bothering me on the roads. I was at ease driving around something that has not occurred in a long time. There was a profound inner peace that I realized black Friday had given me.

Something I will cherish for a long time I wished every resident of Oak Park, Il could enjoy but unfortunately such peace does not last that long and it will all come down or go to hell for the rest of the season. I think I will give some of the other stuff a once over then call it a day, I am not in the mood for bullshit today.

Not dead yet -OP blog

I am right now going through my phone and typing up the posts I texted myself somehow someway some of the posts did not go through! Therefore, I find myself typing up assignments and posts over again the worse part about it is that writing from a phone is a chore with it constantly spell checking all that I am writing. Therefore, everything is going very slowly with the blog because of time constraints and technology snafus. So don’t worry I am not dead, yet.

Holiday traffic in Oak Park, IL

Ah Oak Park, Il traffic I see you getting worse as the snow creeps in and the holiday season is almost upon us. Like a horror movie, (the fog maybe?) the evils are rolling in and destroying everything in its path. I go downtown Chicago and the traffic there is more manageable than what is in Oak Park, IL.

You would think that the village leaders would get about as fed up about the traffic situation as much as the residents do however as I stroll in my car through Oak Park, IL I sincerely doubt it. It is at the point I know and my passengers know when we are in Oak Park, IL by how aggressive my behavior gets when I am driving through it. I am told that I get bright red in the face as I enter Oak Park, IL lol.

I do not think my behavior will get better as the holidays roll around, so I cancelled all holiday celebration plans because I do not want the extra stress of navigating this ignorant suburb.

Carjacking to Oak Park, IL is just stupid

So like I said the stupid has hit Oak Park, Il just a hint to all carjackers that the streets and traffic in Oak Park, Il are NOT conducive to carjacking, crimes that include a car, or driving in any shape or form. The idea of anyone young or old whizzing in a car through the streets of Oak Park, Il is ridiculous yo ass is California dreaming.

I just do not understand the reasoning behind it but I guess there is no thinking or reasoning with criminals. The idea of getting away from the cops in Oak Park Il is silly. Let me clarify getting away from the state or Chicago police, is silly, the Oak Park Il police, yeah you have a good chance if you are a runner. But the two kids in this farce of a crime do not look like runners in any sense nor do they look like they have a brain or half of one between the two.

Which is very sad, from a standpoint that these kids feel they need to steal to get their kicks or make a little money to get ahead. But hell it frees up the job market from two idiots that for some freak reason might get a job that I would apply for in the future, that’s if they didn’t steal that car. Maybe got a job and, or an education but hey do you boo, I am about getting paid.

And after being in Oak Park, Il for so long I know how two-faced people are espousing “hate don’t have a home here” but don’t have your black friends park in front of my house even if its zoned for public parking! I want to get paid and then out this shit hole. I am not trying to stay around those fake asses or be in an area that dumbasses think they can escape in.

Halloween projects for the kids

So to keep my niece and nephew busy this Halloween (I am not sure if the older niece would partake) I found some more crafty stuff to have them do while they are in my presence so that I am not running the streets with two kids not my own! The great thing was that I got it from an email by World Market (yeah, I am one of those a-holes!).

This is the original article link right here:

https://www.worldmarket.com/blog/tag/kids-halloween/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=wk29_halloweenshop&utm_source=wmblog&CAMP=211701&RRID=9007223

However, to make it more savor and easier to pick from I divided the projects down from the original article to their separate links to make it easier to read and print off the instructions at work, because that is what we are all going to do anyway! Hopefully you and the kids you have to entertain find something enjoyable to do and keep them off streets and occupied after a long day of trick or treating.

These are the individual project links with the descriptions as headings:
