    So turns out I finally got a full time teaching position. Will be working at a school on the South Side. If anyone can give me the lowdown on sneaky adorable good places to live, attractions, bars, food, and most importantly bjj gyms I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    Thank you, I have been living in Cincinnati (where I grew up) for a couple years but there were not that many openings for a history position. So I expanded out my search and it paid off

    Check out Valko BJJ in river north. Chill vibe but still fairly competition focused.
