At the beginning of May, I set off on CLEGal’s WhyCLE? Challenge to identify one positive thing I love about Cleveland every day.
Everyone who participated could share their reasons any way they wanted so I decided to tweet my daily reason and then write a recap each week on Clue Into CLE.
How did the WhyCLE Challenge go for me? Well, you can read the recaps of reasons 1-20 here:
And here are reasons 21-31 of why I love Cleveland taken from the last week’s Twitter stream:
#WhyCLE Reason 21: @NUFarmersMarket! Loved stopping by Shaker Square yesterday – the Judy’s Oasis hoomus I picked up was delicious.
#WhyCLE Reason 22: Enjoying @e4thst on a sunny day. Heading over to @thegreenhouse for their Rooftop Patio Party. http://ow.ly/57t3T
#WhyCLE Reason 23: Celebrating my 5 yr anniversary at @PRNewswire. Thankful everyday this led to me moving here and being #happyinCLE!
#WhyCLE Reason 24: Getting outdoors and playing kickball tonight w/ @HungryInCLE @MildlyRelevant & @ScottHicken!
#WhyCLE Reason 25: Opportunities to get more involved w/ #clefood scene. Looking forward to mtg w/rest of @NEOFoodTours team later. http://ow.ly/57t7j
#WhyCLE Reason 26: Being able to learn about a city in unique ways such as @engagecsu’s Cleveland Historical 2.0 app http://ow.ly/53VGU
#WhyCLE Reason 27: Daytrips to #CLE’s outer suburbs like Chagrin Falls. Enjoyed seeing the falls w/Scott and his dad. http://t.co/5wIqtpZ
#WhyCLE reason 28: @HappyDogCLE on a Sunday afternoon … or any day of the week! http://ow.ly/57uGN
#WhyCLE Reason 29: Spending day at @clemetzoo – yesterday’s highlights: lemurs, wallabies & of course the elephants! http://ow.ly/i/cg4n
#WhyCLE Reason 30: @Ingenuityfest bridging #CLE’s science & art communities w/events like Temple of Tesla http://ow.ly/56pmO
#WhyCLE Reason 31: Close proximity to Lake Erie’s shores and islands. Kelleys Island was so much fun today! http://ow.ly/56tzv
So now that it’s June 1st, what did I learn from CLEGal’s May challenge? I think it helped me realize that even on a rainy, gloomy day (and there were plenty of those in May if my basement was any indication!), there’s always something to love about Cleveland. Whether it’s a variety of places and events to enjoy or the chance to get involved in the community, boredom is never a problem and it’s easy to find fun or help out.
