Trip Alone To Chicago: A Short Story

Superior Essays
Trip alone to chicago for the summer. I will never forget the summer I got to spend 3 weeks in Cicero with my Bestfriend. We

were waiting for this moment for a while to get to spend more time over there and explore a lot

more things. I've been there before many times,but only for hours not days. Also we never really

got the chance to Roam around downtown and see the big buildings and lights and eat all the

yummy food, just me and my best friend so this time was different. I saved all my money hopped

on a train and was ready for a good summer and ready to create new great adventures and more memories so I was really excited to see how things would workout this summer.

I remember waking up early in the morning around 7:00

I didn't explore the train station to much I was ready to get out of there I went down the escalator and was headed towards the

revolving door so I could finally enter the streets of the Windy City a place i hadn't seen in so long and the city I love so much. I had to stand outside and just take it all in for a second. I was finally there and I did it all on my own. Looking around and herring all the car noise, seeing all

the people and taxis and just looking up at the tall buildings made me realize I had finally

accomplished something without anyone's help and without any trouble along the way. I called

my best friend and told her I was here she told me to just stay where I was and to give her sister

directions to the place I was at. All I could think was oh no I'm horrible at directions this made

me very nervous but luckily they were already downtown because they knew I was coming so

they weren't to far just a couple minutes away at millennium park where the bean is. I tried to

explain to her directions from there and that I was next to a restaurant called pot belly but that didn't help at all because there was over 10 Pot Bellys downtown. So I just stayed in front of

    She came up and gave my dad a hug then gave everybody else a hug. I was happy to get out of that airport it was way too packed for me. We walked to her car and then I found out she rented a van for the week so we could all travel around together and not take two separate vehicles. We got in her van and my dad asked if anybody was hungry and everybody said yes because none of us have ate since lunch time. We went to Taco Bell and got three of the twelve taco deal which was a good idea because with all of us we ate that pretty quick.…

    I could have gotten a car to avoid him --my town is small and my mother never thought I needed one-- I don't, not really but, on most days of my school week, it would be nice. I'm late on the days after it rains, puddles are ubiquitous and people who enjoy driving into them seem to follow me everywhere. It's my own fault though, I stayed up extra late trying to finish an essay and I forgot to set my alarm. Sprinting away from Thumper the Humper with bedraggled hair…

    It was 6am Monday morning and I was off to San Francisco, it was a smooth 45-minute drive as I had lucked out and barely beat the traffic. This was my first time going to a soup kitchen let alone Glide Memorial the biggest one in San Francisco. As I walked towards the building it was 710 am and keep in mind Glide was not opening the doors till and there were already tons of homeless people lined up, ready to eat. The day I volunteered at glide memorial was one of the most life changing events I have ever done. I never realized or thought about all the homeless people and how big of a problem it is for our country let alone big cities such as San Francisco.…

    I was leaving at 6 P.M, till about 4:30 we just hung out with each other. Since Cloe’s mom wasn’t home we had to walk to meet up with tony and karson at taco bell. It took us so long to get there and it was so hot outside but when we got there I was so sad and emotional because I really didn’t want to leave i was so happy and I loved it in Arizona with my friends, but I didn’t want to ruin this happy moment so i just enjoyed my last times with my friends. We played games, talked and even though it was really hot outside I had so much fun and I was so happy. When it was about 6:15 Rachel’s parents picked us up and took us home.…

    It was a short two-hour drive; we were there in no time. I got out of my mom’s van and unloaded Alexus things, and mine leaning them up against the car. It was extremely humid that day, there was absolutely no breeze; thankfully you couldn 't tell the condensation on my forehead was from fear. I had so many emptions going through me at once, but the only thing I was concentrated on was trying super hard not to cry in front of my three younger brothers. They have always looked up to me and I wanted to show them they could go anywhere and do anything just like me, because I made it, and they could too.…

    I had first encountered Mabel one random night when I stumbled upon the 42 Club after leaving work, grimy and dirty from fixing up snobby, rich guys' cars all day and hating my life. Drinking was difficult to do ever since the Prohibition started; I wasn't a very sneaky person so laying low to find a juice joint wasn't something I enjoyed too much. But that night, after my dim-witted wet blanket of a boss decided that I needed to stay three hours over my shift so I could tune up his beat-up jalopy, I craved nothing more than a bit of hooch and a pretty dame by my side. At a quick glance, you would never be able to realize the 42 Club was a…

    Because it was our arriving day we did not have any further plans on the itinerary other than to travel to the hotel and unpack. This allowed us to walk around the city of San Jose and see the city life before traveling to other less cultivated cities. When dinner came our groups gathered around in the dining hall and ate, you could tell that everyone was getting a good look at each other out of curiosity and considering that we all would be stuck together for ten days it makes sense. We only spent a day in San Jose after that we were off to a new location we changed locations about three or four times this would happen every one to two days because we were touring Costa Rica. Each day an activity would be planned like hiking through tropical rain forests, zip lining over the rainforests above the canopy, or even entering a volcano.…

    Though it seemed we weren’t really the only ones stranded here, as the gas station had been packed full of people either whose power went out, or cars had been thrown off the road, or had been simply pit stopping before getting back on the road. From the time of the crash, my mom had immediately contacted everyone she could; the insurance company, my aunt, her boss, and my dad to come and pick us up. Luckily there was a Subway built into the gas station, or else I wouldn’t have eaten at all that day, as there wasn’t much they had in the station that I think I could eat. I remember distinctly after the car had flipped, having the extreme urge to go to the bathroom, as though I had been holding it in since we left. The feeling had been so great,…
