What's more adult than going to a charity event after work? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. While on the whole I'm in denial of my adulthood . . ness, when I was asked if I would like to be a guest for the Refugees International event at the Racquet Club of Chicago, I couldn't say no. Dinner, a 3 course meal and a good cause. I guess I can be an adult for a night.

The winter blues have hit me hard. I miss warm days, long nights, eating outside, melting ice cream cones, runs on Lakeshore, mornings spent at the beach, iced coffee and, mostly, the sun.

The movies nominated for Academy Awards this year look super interesting, so I decided to go and see The Imitation Game (not to mention the fact that I'm a huge Cumberbatch fan). The movie is about the life of Alan Turing, a mathematician who, along with a team of cryptographers, helped crack the enigma code during World War II.
I didn't know much about Turin going into the movie which isn't surprising since the work he did for the government was kept a secret for over 50 years. However, the cracking of this code was instrumental in the quickening the victory for the allies in World War II.
I highly recommend the movie to anyone and everyone. It's brilliantly made, the acting is incredible (Cumberbatch never disappoints) and the story is exceedingly interesting. I came home and bought the book to read up more on it. If you're not into movies or history, at least go see it for all the beautiful British and Irish men. Hello Benny, Matthew Goode and Allan Leech!

I think it's save to say the first Saturday of January was by far my very favorite night since moving to Chicago. One of my closest friends of college is getting married in March which means it was high time we had a bachelorette party. Some of my old friends from school and some of Lauren's friends from back home flew in for a night of dancing, drinking and celebrating. I asked around for recommendations of places to go and every told me Howl at the Moon, a live music bar downtown.
