Well June 9th is my birthday, so I can't imagine a better way to celebrate than to head to Chicago for the Jam on the 10th. I'm so there. :D

Well I'm me and I get bored and come spend time in Chicago to do parkour and such so... it just wouldn't make sense for me to miss it.

They could take their picture with the wedding party in front of Buckingham Fountain.  Yeah, Chad, have a talk with the betrothed.  Tell them what they are missing.

would like to go if I can make it. I am going to Chicago at some point this summer so I may try to make it that weekend. Guess I should get on that huh lol
I always face north, therefore I have no guides other than my body and mind. By always facing north I am always moving forward and up, regardless of the obstacle in my path.
