Just like the title says, I tried out the Chicago train system all on my own today! Usually I have someone with me, but today I really wanted to get out of the house since I was home alone. The aim was to take the train down to Belmont. I wanted go shopping at Chicago Comics and this adorable alternative store called The Alley, but I couldn't find anything in my price range... I decided to save for another time.
I had a little trouble figuring out where I was going at first. I got off at Belmont, but I didn't see Clark street, so I got back on the train and went back to Clark and Division instead. I walked a while before hopping on a bus down Clark, looking for the address of the comic shop, and I ended up where I originally got off at Belmont. So silly....
Luckily, Chicago Comics and The Alley are right next to each other! Two of my favorite kinds of stores!! Awesome.I didn't take any pictures in the stores, since I'm really paranoid about getting yelled at for photographing merchandise.
Instead of buying stuff, I bought myself one of my all-time favorite foods: the Chipotle vegetarian burrito .
I'm still full. haha
Not wanting the day to be over with yet, I decided to get on the orange line and get off at Roosevelt. I was going to get a couple things at Target. I don't normally shop at Target because I don't like to support them, but I didn't know where else I could get My Little Pony toys! (I needed hand sanitizer and tissues as well, but that's not as cute or exciting)
Of course I bought Rarity!! Her mane and tail are kind of crazy, so I'll be styling her later. Maybe I'll make a tutorial out of it to post! :)
