Okay, sorry- got sidetracked 2 seconds into filling this out. My name's Jay, originally from Cincinnati but have been living in Chicago since I was 19. I moved back to Cinci last year for 6 months, and just moved back to Chicago (Wicker Park) earlier this year. Went to Columbia College for 2 years, transferred to College of Dupage to finish up my gen-eds. (COD is cheaper, I save money this way), and am finishing up my Bachelor's in Marketing in a semester, or 2. I originally started as a film major, then switched majors for practicality purposes. (My brother works for Nielsen, and I love me some nepotism.) I know, I know... I 'SOLD OUT, MAAAAN.'
I also perform standup, write/record music which I occasionally get to perform, and do a show on Youtube. (Don't roll your eyes, I've made $$ off these things.)
I'm sort of neurotic. I'm a hyper-vigilant person that always has a commentary going on in my head about whatever's happening around me. I used to make that commentary audible, until one day a friend of mine said 'Ugh, we get it, you're SOOoooOoo much smarter than everyone else. Shut up, already'
So I took that as a sign that I was often being mis-interpreted as a cocky, mouthy, egomaniac.. and I've tempered that OCD urge a bit, since then. Though at the root of me, I know that most of what I say is well-intentioned and often mis-interpreted.. I have no superiority complex whatsoever and live by 1 rule: Be kind and treat everyone equal. (I sound like a corny bumper-sticker, but it's true.)
