Well. Here I am. Sitting in bed. Avoiding homework. Everyone knows the two weeks before finals are just as bad as the finals, right? So here we go, getting back into the writing game to keep doing what I love and keep me motivated to finish this semester! A few weeks ago was thanksgiving (I know, old news) and in this time I had my first real experience in the city of Milwaukee!
To be completely honest, my mother instilled a lasting dread of Milwaukee in my heart, and it hasn’t quite left me yet (sorry, that traffic is killer). But, these four hours definitely improved my idea of Milwaukee, and I am actually looking forward to going back! On our way home from a Chicago Christmas, we stopped in Milwaukee to drop me off with my best friend Zizo. As a Milwaukee native, he so-kindly offered to be our official tour guide.
We initially parked next to the art museum so that is where we began. Sadly, I did not get to go in, hence my excitement for my next visit, so we took pictures of this beautiful architectural feat from outside. We continued taking in the scene from outside and wandering around before Zizo suggested going to Discovery World.
This place was huge. From the outside I never would have guessed that I was going to find a science museum and aquarium. My brother had the time of his life seeing and touching the fish and stingray! We all had a great time discovering Discovery World, I would say. Especially exploring the giant boat. I felt like a captain. It was empowering.
We tried so hard to go to AJ Bombers, but alas, it was full. But hey, at least I got a cute picture out of it, right? We went to Ian’s pizza instead, and it was as satisfying as ever. From there, my family parted ways and Zizo and I went on to Purple Door Ice Cream and the Harley Davidson store. I was over whelmed by both of them.
