However, after two years I was ready to move back and now I'm back in suburban Chicago living with a few friends. I get to work the same job remotely which I must say is pretty fantastic! I enjoy being able to work from home.
I love playing music; currently I only play with friends for random cover band get-togethers every once and a while. Occasionally a friend's solo act needs a backup guitarist/bassist spot that I will gladly fill! I also have my own music project that I write and record for whenever I have time, although this has been put on hold for a while as I focus on my job. So who the hell knows when that'll come back...
I enjoy playing video games! As you might have figured, seeing as I'm a programmer I also happen to be a major geek. I grew up playing lots of Nintendo games, particularly Zelda. I am a huge fan of Final Fantasy and RPG games in general. Lately I've been playing Dark Souls quite a bit... I also enjoy watching movies, anime, and various TV shows on Netflix and Hulu.
I don't care much for watching sports, but if you're a sports fan, I'm cool with that. Just don't expect me to care if the team you love loses =D. I do love playing tennis, though! I still suck at it, but I am trying to learn how to play properly. I took some beginner lessons a while back... haha
I really want to spend time traveling the world when I have enough money to, but it's okay if I don't any time soon. I want to become more proficient in other languages; I'm currently learning Japanese, and would like to learn German and Chinese as well.
Overall, I'm a pretty simple guy. While I do love going out sometimes, I generally find myself most comfortable at home with few to no people, just hanging out.
