My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an outgoing type...frequently aiming to make people laugh, love listening to good music almost as much as seeing it played live, and travel as much as possible. As with most people, I enjoy spending free time with friends and family...heading out for dinners, sipping wine flights or a quick beer. In the warmer months I like kayaking, paddle boarding, walks, etc. When it's cold, I like to hibernate or ski (I aim to hit the Rockies yearly but was remiss last year). I enjoy naps across all seasons.

Loves that I leave to satisfy: snorkeling; scuba diving; hiking and then lounging near waterfalls, lakes, or rivers; skiing

I'll tell you the rest of my life story over a drink...

Oh, and I'm on the proverbial fence about having kids...so someone I date should be comfortable with that indecision.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying it...I have a great group of friends and family and assuredly the cutest dog ever. I am lucky to have a rewarding career working in schools that I enjoy greatly. Nonetheless, I very much treasure a work-life balance.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding humor in everyday situations, chatting, listening, making and keeping friends, being entertained by others' quirks...or laughing at my own.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: It has been awhile since I read a book to add to my "favorites" list. Lately I've been reading (or more accurately, procrastinating reading) books for my latest grad school endeavor. Happily, I just finished my last grad class and can get back to the light reading I enjoy.

Movies: Crazy, Stupid Love, Bridesmaids, Shawshank Redemption, Wedding Crashers, King of Kong

TV Shows: Modern Family, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, The Wire

Music: Lots... Wilco, Aimee Mann, Travis, Ryan Adams, The Beatles, Avett Brothers, Brandi Carlile (not to be confused with Belinda), Ben Folds (with or without the 5), Rilo Kiley, the classic rock my dad introduced me to when I was young. Oh, and Guns n' Roses will always have a special place in my heart, residing right next to New Kids on the Block.

Food: Anything with an excessive amount of cheese. Chocolate. Wine. Beer with flavor. Skyline chili.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Weekend naps, friends/family, my dog, witty retorts, music, the internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why people do the things they do...constant entertainment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sipping wine in a variety of surroundings. Meeting friends for dinner or seeing a concert if a band I like is playing...Pretty much anything if I've got good company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I still have a VCR. (In my defense, it’s VHS, not Betamax and it is attached to a DVD player). Similarly antiquated, I still have a tape player (there’s no defense for this one--I just couldn’t part with all of those old mixed tapes!)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are laid back with a clever sense of humor--I have a weakness for wit that catches me off-guard. In the event that this inspires too much expectation, I am always able to laugh quite heartily at my own expense.

You live in the city (of Chicago, that is)...or its close cousin, Evanston.

You are confident, kind, and non-judgmental. You're looking for someone to grab dinners with, travel with, lay on the couch and watch movies with, stay up late telling secrets with, laugh loudly with, see live music with and just generally have fun...and you're hopeful a relationship with that person would last.
