I’m Such a Nerd!

Ilana Eden

I’m meeting my boyfriend at Union Station. We meet here every day after work and take the train to our apartment in Highland Park. It’s a great neighborhood, but it’s becoming a little more difficult to live there. It was really hard for my partner to realize that the place where he grew up and where his family lives is a place he can barely afford.

When I’m on the train I like to read nerdy fiction novels. I also collect TAP cards. The designs are so beautiful. I’m such a nerd!
