I think I am about to break out of the cycle.
I'm on my way to Chicago, to spend the weekend with two of my very best friends in the whole entire world. Much talk will be had, much tequila will be shot, many stories will be made, and if you hear sirens coming from Illinois, don't worry, it's just us.
Have a good weekend, everyone. Be safe. Don't drink too much (said the pot to the kettle).
