Are you new to Chicago? Meeting people here confusing and stressful? If you are, I can relate to what you’re going though. Not only have I moved here recently, I’ve moved around a few times when I was younger (obviously, that makes me an expert) and if you’ve ever moved before, you know just how difficult it is to start over again. Getting to know your new neighborhood, what people wear, how they talk, making new friends and other little nuances can be a daunting task for some, no doubt. Take my friend for example: he recently got offered a job in Chicago and comes from a town in Missouri where the population is 429. No, that is not a typo, I didn’t miss any zeros: 429. His graduating class in high school was 22. Going to college was scary for him, think of being in a whole new city that is literally 6000 times bigger than his hometown!
