When I Moved to Chicago

I moved to Chicago in 2006. I left Michigan in the summer and it was hot and humid. I said goodbye to my friends and family the day before I moved. I was very sad to say goodbye, but I was excited to move to a new city. The day before I moved, my father and my friend helped me pack my furniture into a truck. The next day, my father and my brother drove with me to Chicago early in the morning. It took 2 and a half hours to drive. After we arrived, we moved my furniture into my new apartment. It took me 3 days to organize everything, but I was comfortable after I finished.
