So to park here at Marian, you have to buy a $210 parking pass. It’s really expensive, especially for a college student. Plus I pay about $9,500 to live here, so you think the least they could do is give me a parking spot, and maybe some better food and wifi that actually works and showers that get cleaned more than once every two weeks. But that’s a different topic. So I didn’t buy the pass and continued to park on campus, trying to cover up my dash and park in concealed areas. And it was working really well until today when they finally found me and gave me some nice parking tickets that added up to $100. Let’s just say I wasn’t real happy this morning.
For the weekend my professor told us to take some photos that represented our Labor Day and also to not make them stereotypical. So I went to the lake. In Cicero this is where people spend their Labor Day. Out on their boats enjoying the end of summer. I walked along the docks and watched various boats go by, and fishers cast their lines, and kids play in the park. And I saw these two boats. This kinda sums up Cicero. This very old, beat up pontoon boat, right next to a big, brand new, expensive boat. Old and New. Expensive and Cheap.
