I live downtown STL and enjoy my ability to walk to so many great places.
I work from home (when I'm not out on a project somewhere) which is wonderful and terrible at the same time. I don't set an alarm clock, but sometimes I get a little cabin fever during the work week. I remedy this by swimming laps at the Y, riding my bike, and going out to lunch.
I enjoy my independence, I love living life to the fullest, and while I don't mind doing things solo, I really want someone to share life with.
