Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I hate summarizing myself. What can I say? I am who I am. It takes
time to get to know me and time for me to open up to others. I'm
generally the one in the background just observing and thinking.
However once I become comfortable I open up and am known for my
surprising snark and witty responses.
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
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
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently Drupal-ing it up at a company of about 25 that makes
websites for others. That said, I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing
with my life. It's a big question, and I don't know if I'll ever
have the answer.

and listening, though I do open up as I get to know and feel
comfortable with people or in a place.

When it comes to reading, I'm a big Stephen King fan (though I
enjoy most genres). I also read books and blogs (as well as watch
videos) to improve myself professionally, drama, sci-fi, historical
fiction, and poetry.
My big TV show was HIMYM, and I'm currently trying to find a new
one to pick up and watch from the beginning. I watch "Family Guy"
and "Southpark" when I want to kill some time (usually while
The music I listen to depends on my mood, and I listen to most
kinds. The reaction I often get when people go through my music
libraries is, "Is this all yours?" or "You listen to all these
kinds?" and the answer is "Yup."
I'm also a food agnostic and love trying (both cooking and eating)
new things. Day to day, I find myself eating a lot of pasta.

anything and everything. I'm a big thinker and often get lost in my
own thoughts. One of my favorite weekend activities is sitting or
lying on the couch thinking and dreaming about whatever comes to
mind. Often, I even think and solve things in my dreams. I have a
tendency to over-think things, but I try not to let this get the
best of me.
