I have been neglecting my posts because I have been visiting venerable Chicago institutions like the Shedd Aquarium, the Adler Planetarium, the Field Museum, the International Museum of Surgical Science, Lincoln Park Zoo, and Notebaert. I had two interviews and picked up a volunteer job with Lost Boyz (lostboyzinc.org), a fantastic nonprofit that works with youth and young adults in the South Shore neighborhood in Chicago. Finally, I am at the three-day Summer Writers Conference at Northwestern University to learn, network, and listen!
What an amazing city Chicago is. I leave you for now with some pictures from my explorations with science at Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.
