Trying to fold fitted sheets frustrates me to no end.
I have been to England, Scotland, and Ireland.
I have been cliff diving in the boundary waters of Canada.
I can't stand the taste of celery.
I also don't like olives but I really wish I did.
You'll never hear me complain about snow or winter. You might hear me complain when it gets above 95 degrees though.
As a kid, I wanted to be a Paleontologist.
In high school I wanted to be a Marine Biologist.
In college I studied Computer Science.
Now I work as an IT Consultant and spend my free time reading about the ocean and playing dinosaurs with my three year old nephew.
I have set foot in 26 of the 50 states.
If I had a British accent I would never stop talking.
I have been self-teaching myself guitar for 12 years. I'm still learning. Feel free to suggest songs I should learn to play!
I've been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans three times. It's so much more than beads and booze. Such an amazing city!
So those are some scattered facts about me! I am also the youngest of three with a brother and a sister. My parents are awesome, hilarious, and my inspiration. I was born and raised in Peoria, IL.
I am a Chicago sports nut, along with my Iowa Hawkeyes. I love all kinds of music and enjoy discovering new genres and artists. Right now I'm really in to the indie/singer songwriter and Alt Rock genres. I also really love live music. Locally, I like going to shows at The Castle Theater. Beyond that, every year I go with a group of friends to a three day music fest in Memphis, TN. It's always a great opportunity for us to get together and enjoy some great shows and do some bonding since almost none of us live in the same city anymore. I love going to the gym. I prefer doing weights, and sometimes cardio is a chore, but I have to go a few times a week. I really enjoy reading about science and learning how things work. Often times, you can find me at the Coffee Hound on a Saturday or Sunday morning reading Discover or Scientific American.
I would love to meet someone who isn't in a hurry to get somewhere and is more about enjoying the ride. Someone who values and strives to live a healthy lifestyle. Someone who would join me in Iowa City on a Saturday morning tailgating with friends and drinking PBR, and spend the next Saturday morning reading at a coffee house and going to the Farmer's Market. Maybe even someone who can teach me how to fold my fitted sheets...
