I moved to Chi for a job after going to a small liberal arts college in the middle of nowhere Iowa...despite growing up in Iowa and telling myself I'd go somewhere outside of Iowa without snow for college. Unlike most, I'd rather winter just be cold without snow than warmer with snow. I love thunderstorms and have been disappointed with the lack of good thunderstorms since moving here.
In my free time, you'll likely find me reading, cooking, sitting just thinking, or enjoying a good beer. When it's nice, I enjoy just walking around at the zoo, the beach, a park, or any nature area really.
