I found a place in a random neighborhood in Chicago that was just too good to pass up. I’ll miss my morning walks by the lake but think this is a good move. At least I hope so. Bigger apartment. Outdoor space. An office. Lower rent. Shorter cab rides downtown. And it will take 15 min to get to the gym instead of 35-40 min. Each way.
I may have moved from LA to Chicago, but I really don’t like change. I know people go through much bigger things than this, but it just stresses me out. I was pretty anxious moving from River North to Lakeview, but once I got here, adjusted very quickly. I am a creature of habit and like consistency and familiarity. And then there’s the packing.
This will push me outside my comfort zone, I’ll save money on rent each month, have more space, and will adapt to a new neighborhood. It’s a good move. I’m going to go with it.
My place is available May 1! It’s a GREAT apartment, so if you know someone looking to move to Lakeview, email me!
