My self-summary
I made a big life change recently and decided to leave my job of over seven years in non-profit. Prior to my departure I was the Director of Programs and formerly Resident Camp Director for a small non-profit that serves children, teens and families affected by type-1 diabetes.

While the work was meaningful and rewarding I was simply ready for a professional change and a new life adventure. I'm in the process of studying for the LSAT and hope to start law school in Fall 2016. I'm not interested in becoming the next Jack McCoy. Instead I'm hoping to help people in a less dramatic though still important way -trusts, estate planning, etc.

As that gives me almost a year I'm hoping to do some traveling via work on a cruise ship in 2016. For now, seasonal retail it is.

Small aside, I answered these questions nearly seven years ago so don't put much weight in them. I also operate in gray often (as opposed to black and white) as each situation brings its own unique circumstances and such.
What I’m doing with my life
Studying for the LSAT.
I’m really good at
30 Rock Trivia - like scary good!
Organizing & Systematizing (nerdy I know)
The first things people usually notice about me
My unexpected wit/humor. I'm a surprising package once I warm up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm a big reader and I have a terrible time picking a favorite. It's usually whatever I've just finished reading. Currently on the "favorites" list:

Gone Girl
Shantaram (I'm not gonna lie, great story but I think I'm more impressed for having finished this monster)
A Thousand Splendid Suns

Movies I'll Watch Over & Over :
Anchorman
Step Brothers
Baby Mama
Bridesmaids
The Hangover
Unfaithful
Shawshank Redemption
The Tourist
My movies preferences are more far reaching but you have to have some old stand bys.

TV Shows:
30 Rock
New Girl
The Daily Show
Arrested Development
Law & Order: SVU
Mad Men
It's Always Sunny…
The League
Scandal

Music: Other than screamo (if that's even a thing anymore) and hard core rock I'll listen to just about anything. I will confess I'm a pretty loyal Top 40 (in just about any genre) fan but I'll throw some NPR or Sports Radio on the way home from work fairly consistently.

Food:
Air/stove/movie theater popped popcorn (if I had to pick one food for the rest of my life I'm confident I could live on popcorn just not the bag popped kind - though it will do in a pinch)
Thai (Pad See Ew specfically)
Sushi
I'm not super adventurous when it comes to food but I'm willing to try most things at least once minus spicy things - I have learned I just wasn't built for spice (in food).
The six things I could never do without
Family
Quality Friends
Diet Dr. Pepper/Diet Coke (I'm not proud of it but I figure I could have bigger vices)
A Diverse Music Collection
The Ability to Travel
Laughter/Humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Next steps in life.
My contribution to the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing something fun and relaxing. Sometimes that's Redbox and Thai take-out, other nights its a night out with friends.
You should message me if
You
- are grounded.
- have a good sense of humor (sarcasm welcome, though let me get to know you a bit before you lay it on thick).
- are kind and empathetic.
- are ok with my love of the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers ( you can cheer on whoever you want to and I'll support them as long as they aren't playing the Packers)
- think we might hit it off (even only as friends).
