If this gargoyle could talk, he would say “I am so over this winter”.
Chicago temps are slowly climbing into the 40s and 50s, and the worst of winter seems to be over. Check out Utagawa Hiroshige’s Winter Scenes at The Art Institute of Chicago now through March 20th and enjoy the beauty of winter indoors, away from March’s transitional slush.
Oh Chicago. #chicago #skyline #camovement #winterinamerica #lakemichigan
It’s chilly. It’s snowy. It’s time to stop thinking about the downsides of winter, and time to focus on the fact that cold weather = next-level coffee and cocoa.
Mindy’s Hot Chocolate (Wicker Park), Rick Bayless’ Xoco (River North), and Star Lounge Coffee (Ukranian Village) are just a few of Chicago’s one-of-a-kind destinations for all things drinkable.

Went adventuring at night around our campus because I was bored of doing astrophysics homework. Ended up climbing some roofs and taking some pictures. It was a fun study break.
Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time

We love passing these ice sculptures on the quad!
Cold and icy day on the Chicago River.
