I've been in Chicago for about 3 years. Originally from the east coast and moved out to Chicago for grad school.
Things I like: Traveling (Wow! Crazy, someone on OKC likes traveling), aquariums, nature documentaries, roadtrips, re-watching favorite movies that I've seen a million times, and impromptu dance parties.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a therapist for low income kids and families on the south and west sides.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty short, so maybe my height?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite book of all time is still The Phantom Tollbooth. Also, anything by David Sedaris. I also read a lot of books related to psychology, trauma, and the brain because of my job.
Favorite movies include Run Lola Run, Wet Hot American Summer, Home Alone, Back to the Future, and probably a whole host of others I'm forgetting.
I love television. Like, more than one ever should. Parks and Rec, Orange is the New Black, Game of Thrones, The West Wing, The Wire, Scrubs, the list goes on and on.
I pretty much like most kinds of food, and I'm always willing to try new things. I especially love Indian food and am a connoisseur of all things pizza.
The six things I could never do without
cheese and npr
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How "breakfast food" is a social construct.
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends, either in or out
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate cilantro.
You should message me if
You like witty banter.
And you live in Chicago, preferably Chicago proper.
Also, if you have/know someone who has a motorcycle with a sidecar, I've always wanted to ride in one. I am extremely serious about this.
