I recently moved to Chicago from Portland, Oregon. In order to fully experience this new environment, I have decided to do some activity completely foreign to me every day for the next 365 days. The activities can range from the minute to the outlandish. Some may be specific to the Chicago area, some may be things I have wanted to try for a long time, and some may be things I will only ever do once. Some activities may be planned, and others may just be stumbled upon. I encourage suggestions and look forward to your comments. Welcome to the Novice Du Jour.
