A state in the Mid-West. There are a lot of misconceptions about Illinois. First, Chicago is NOT the capital, Springfield is. Second, Illinois is pronounced Ill - Uh - Noy, Not Ill - Uh - Noise. Third, Illinois is more than Chicago and a bunch of farms. There are a bunch of cities in Illinois like Peoria, Bloomington, and Springfield. Fourth, A lot of people think Peoria is a shit hole. Well, I live there and honestly, I have to agree. Every day somebody gets shot or stabbed in Peoria.
Illinois is a great place to be. Except if you live in Peoria like me, then it sucks.
