In the blink of an eye, my first anniversary of living in Chicago is here. Given the events of the last few months, it’s easy to see why this day brings memories rushing to the forefront. I spent much of my last day in Los Angeles with the sweet Sadath and was privileged to spend time with him on his last visits to Chicago. Besides that, I’ve been reflecting a lot on this last year. Leaving behind the familiarity of a place I had lived for so long was one of the biggest challenges I’ve ever took on, but one I will never regret taking. This has been a tough year, but also one of the best years of my life. I feel so lucky to already have experienced so many incredible things in life, and I’m looking forward to many more adventures on the road ahead.
