I currently work 9-5 (unless things are crazy, then 9-whothehellknows) downtown and live just twelve blocks north of the office (I enjoy my <15 minute commute). I majored in History (concentration on early modern France; don't ask why, it just kind of happened) with an English minor at UIC and am originally from Naperville. I have a younger sister who is a kindergarten teacher and we grew up in a typical suburban sitcom way.
I take the CTA everywhere despite the fact that I do technically have a vehicle, but it sits in my parents' driveway out in the suburbs.
I like going out with my friends and just hanging out at a bar where we can talk to each other and I can drink a beer that isn't Miller Lite or some such (but given the circumstances, I'll drink whatever). I'm kind of lame in that I really enjoy going to the museums in the city, or just walking through the city on a nice day with someone.
