6 Days Later

Today I woke up with the realization that we would be leaving The Drake Hotel, Chicago, and Illinois in a matter of hours. I dragged myself out of bed to go to the hotel's gym for the last time. After a revitalizing work out I went back to the room, and finished packing the rest of my things. The whole Penn gang gathered together in the lobby for the last time, then together we left the hotel to get some breakfast.

Next on today's agenda was Navy Pier. I was surprised to see all the many different activities that are available to us. To name a few, there was a maze, a ferris wheel, and mini golf.  Unfortunately we weren't able to actually participate in any, but that didn't take anything away from our visit. The view of the lake was all we needed to make our visit memorable. Before we knew it, it was time for us to go back to the hotel where a shuttle would be picking us up to take us to the airport.

We went through the old process of checking in our bags, going through security, and boarding the plane for the third time this week. The next tme we go through it all again will be when we are on our way home, on June 28th. Time is passing by so quickly. That also applies to our flight, it felt really short when in reality it was practically two hours. We took a shuttle to The Sheraton, and got settled in for our last night together.
I'm really looking forward to moving into our dorms tomorrow, and starting the class!
