1. Taking selfies at “The Bean” before selfies were a thing.
The beauty of growing in Chicago meant visiting the “Bean,” a world-famous art installation called Cloud Gate. Before selfies were even invented, my best friends and I would stand in the front of the Bean, snapping pictures with the stunning Chicago skyline in the background. Because the bean is made of mirror, the Bean helped us take the world’s first selfies. Yeah, we’ll claim that.
