This is true. I've only been once, and planned to go back with my boyfriend at some point. We were going to check out the city in general and maybe see what kind of editing jobs existed. We're kind of 'taking space' to not influence each other too much where the other wants to go (though I've pretty much said I'll go where he goes if he'll be okay with it, because I can find things to like anywhere), but I just sent him information on a paid internship in Chicago he seems pretty excited about. (I didn't know he has an aunt in the suburbs so he wouldn't actually have to live in the city). So, who knows. If he gets it and I'm still in the area I'm sure I'll be visiting. Things have a way of coming up/working out as they should, so I'm sure if the right thing comes up and it's in Chicago, I'll take it; otherwise, it'll come up somewhere else that I'll still get a unique experience out of

I've never heard of that, but I'll have to check it out. Thanks
