I recently discovered that for $60 you can pet the penguins
at the Shedd Aquarium.
This has changed how I see the world in a big way. I wonder what
else is possible.
I've been in the city four years now. I came here for an internship

children, doing brain scans and psych tests for a while, and now

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Going to Full
shows; trying new
beers, helping run the young adult group at my Unitarian
church; reading all the books I feel like I should
have already read (current: The Picture of Dorian Grey);
hosting/going to friends' parties; and sometimes playing on the
swings at Belmont beach. I made a New Year's Resolution to study
harder and work out more, but it didn't work out, so I changed it
to "Host a retro Nickelodeon night at least once a week". Are You
Afraid of the Dark Halloween was a great sucess.
I used to volunteer with ICAT (abortion clinic escorting), but I
fell out of it once I started working full time. If you a social
justice organization near Lakeview that needs help on weeknights
you should message me.
I went through the Second City
improv program (A-E) a
couple years ago. This year I'm taking classes with the Neos,
currently Let's Get Physical.
Oh, and for money I write code.

major, and I did pretty
well at Directing.
summer I figured out three-club cascade, 3-ball Mill's Mess and

with the left hand.

A lot of how I see the world comes from reading The Rubaiyat of
Omar Khayyam in high school, a neuroscience book called Phantoms in
the Brain in college, and The Sandman
Series after college. My

the first five chapters are a kind of blatant rip off of Harry

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Once I had a dream where I met Death. She was great. She was funny,
and sweet, and I could just feel how much she cared about everyone;
she knew the best things about me and for a while I wasn't afraid
or ashamed of anything. I had died, of course, and mostly we just
screwed around doing ghost things and talking, and at the end I
asked her, "What's next?" She said, "Well, there's heaven and hell,
but I don't think you've decided yet." I woke up feeling more
peaceful than I have in a long time.
