At that moment all I could remember was what Will Smith said,” The best things in life are on the other side of fear”. Yes, I was panicking and sweating. It was 12:30 AM, and I was super tired but could not sleep even after closing my eyes. I told myself everything will be ok and there is nothing to worry about and forced myself to sleep.

Having been in Chicago for just over a month, I was starting to think that the United States is all about these amazing glass structures and chaotic city traffic. I was fascinated when I got to visit an 1890s farm in the suburb of Wheaton, Illinois. Thanks to Bridges International for taking us on a super awesome field trip to this living museum.

Having traveled from India to Chicago for over 26 hours on multiple flights, I was super tired and jet-lagged. It took a couple of days for me to recover and adapt to the time difference, but then I started missing India, the spicy food, noisy traffic, vibrant colors, and most of all, the people. That’s when I pulled out my phone and started to search for the nearest restaurant, also I needed a couple of Indian spices, so I needed a store that sells Indian groceries, that is how I found out about Devon Avenue, also called Little India.

With the 2022 midterm elections finally behind us, it can be kind of hard to discern who exactly won and lost in the elections.  The political history and significance of midterm elections can be a lot to unpack, and can sometimes even seem counterintuitive.  So for the people who don’t spend hundreds of hours obsessively reading about American history (like I do), here is an easy guide of the winners and losers in the 2022 midterm election.

The Ernest Hemingway Birthplace
 This paragraph will talk about the tour of the Ernest Hemingway Birthplace in Oak Park. Mentioning his life and works, I will think about war, adventure, hunting, and the ocean. These styles are full of masculine atmosphere. Hemingway was born on July 21, 1899, in Oak Park, Chicago, a town on the western outskirts of Cook County.

Of all the fabulous experiences nature provides us with, the Chicagohenge is one of the top contenders for everyone around the world let alone nature enthusiasts. The five days of fall equinox hundreds of people gather into the alleys of the Chicago grid to witness this spectacular phenomenon. Chicagohenge is an event when the rising sun and the setting sun lines up perfectly along the east-west grids of the city. Coined after the famous Stonehenge, Chicagohenge occurs twice a year around the equinox (where the day and night hours are almost equal) — this magical moment is captured in the windy city, it's almost as if we are experiencing the matrix of mother nature.
