Yesterday was Free Comic Book Day, and I… I totally forgot about it until I saw my friend’s post about it on Facebook. So… after I realized it, I quickly looked up comic book stores in my area (Sadly the one near my house shut down last year or two… I can’t remember though). Turns out, the nearest one is just about no more than 20 minutes from me. I decided to go ahead and went to the shop. Here’s how it all turned out:
I seriously wanted to enjoy this day, since it always comes around the first Saturday of May. Also, this was my first time in a VERY long time since I went to a comic book (The last time I went there was when I was a kid).
I highly recommend this comic book store if you’re at or near Homewood.
Free comic books galore!
Ah, the original Teen Titans. I’ll take them over the new Teen Titans any day.
There was a photographer that wanted to take pictures for the Homewood and Flossmoor Chronicles. This guy was part of it. Also, I’m (Along with several others) part of the paper! It was weird (..but awesome), cause it just went from a conversation about me doing photography as a hobby, to being part of the local town paper! I was actually excited about it, and still am!
They were a special guest at the comic book store.
Last picture that I took before I went to this park nearby and went home to prepare for church in the morning. It was fun stopping by there, and I also made a new friend too! Next year, I’m bringing my baby with me.
Ahh, Barnes and Noble.. the one place (Aside from different cafés, Starbucks, Downtown Chicago, and any arcade place) that I can relax and escape from all of the stresses in life. It’s also where I can come to check out all of the books and stuff that they sell, as well.
Being a huge gaming/anime/manga fan, this is the one place (Aside from comic book stores, and whatever places they sell em at), that I come to check out and read all of the latest manga from. I couldn’t believe that one of my favorite horror game has a manga out!! Let’s just say I was so stoked as I was reading it, lol.
The views from Barnes and Noble. The closest one to me was in Orland Park, near Orland Square Mall. That’s the one I usually go to, when I’m not in downtown Chicago.
Sadly, I had to leave, cause it was almost time for choir rehearsals, and I needed to get back home (It’s about 30 minutes from my house). I decided to buy two books for now, and two bookmarks. Being a huge book nerd.. it was all worth it.
Hopefully I can finish up A Midsummer Night’s Dream within the next week or two, so I can get started on The Canterbury Tales (Which I haven’t read since high school… man, I kinda feel old, heh).
So Lawrence and I decided to check out some stores to see if they are hiring. While we went there, we decided to check out this thrift store. While we were there, I found this bag (See above) for $1.49! I brought it, cause it was perfect for me.
They also sell vinyl records.
After we left the thrift store, we stopped by Barnes & Noble. This is the view from the 2nd floor.
I found this book, and this made me laugh hard. I so want to get this book, lol!
One of the weirdest pizza combos that I ever seen: Cheese pizza with onions and pickles. He says that it’s good, but I kinda disagree.
Us after eating and getting ready to check out Macy’s after the mall is closed, lol.
While we were in Macy’s (..and finding out if they were hiring), we decided to check out the store, and while we were checking out the mattress section.. I found this: A 22 piece bedroom ensemble. I have never seen a 22 piece bedroom ensemble before. The largest bed piece that I found was a 16 piece, and that was at my job!
Orland Square Mall after dark.
So after we came from the mall, we actually went to a few more stores to see if they were hiring. It turns out that most were and a few of em were not. Things look positive for us! Tomorrow we’re gonna fill out the job applications and return em back in Orland Park.
Wish us luck!
Go out with your children, spouse, or whomever to the library for National Library Week and get your reading on!!
*Note: The books that you see here, I actually skimmed and read through yesterday. They’re actually the types of books that I love to read: Manga, comic, finance, and.. well…, books that talk about the infamous genocides that happened in the world during the 19th or so century, and during the war (World War I and II), and the death penalty. I actually like reading those types of books (Genocide, death penalties, finance, and whatnot), to help me gain knowledge about how it all took place and whatnot.*
