Moving to Chicago just a few days before I started my first year of grad school gave me little time to explore the city before winter's cold swept in, chilling us all to the bone.  Here I am nine months later. Finished with my first year of grad school! Or I could say half done! Either way I'm ready for my FIRST Chicago summer I've heard so many people rave about.  May yours and mine be filled with concerts and festivals, art walks and street fairs, and hot days with a cool breeze from the lake.  I hope my first playlist is full of fitting tracks that will serve you well to kick off your summer.  Make it a memorable one! Cheers!
