I'm originally from a smaller town in northern Wisconsin, the kind where the tree to people ratio favors trees, moved to Chicago for school and didn't want to leave after I graduated. Loving living and working in the city. Occasionally snarky, usually funny, nice person, who has been known to enjoy some night cheese.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a nonprofit as a marketing coordinator, and I like the people I work with and the actual work I'm doing-I do a lot of scheduling, kind of like puzzle solving. I'm also happy that I'm not expected to work ridiculous hours. Although working is important to me, I still like/want to have time to hang out with people and decompress.
I’m really good at
Making the best out of a situation
Being indecisive on things "like what should I get from redbox?"
Finding funny animal videos on YouTube
