That's not really the only thing you wanna see up here, though. You want something with more substance. Okay, I'll give it another go.
I grew up back east in a decently small town in Virginia. College took 11 semesters spread between three different schools before I escaped with my multifunctional General Studies degree. Yay for student loans.
Since college, I've moved around a good bit. There were a couple of volunteer years in there along with a few I-think-this-is-where-I-belong ventures. When the dust settled I'd lived in Colorado, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Oregon, California, and now I'm in Illinois for the next adventure.
So the roaming goes on. I'm a full-time volunteer again. It's not exactly what I was hoping to do next, but it fit enough criteria and it kept me from burning out at my last job. It's starting to grow on me, though it keeps me on the road a lot and that can get tiresome.
As for this OK Cupid account, I originally got on here because I needed a date for a particular evening. Now it's a way to connect to a larger community around me that I wouldn't otherwise be able to find.
So, if you want to drop me a line because you think I might be entertaining, willing to banter, or a smart-ass, then fire away! It's worth noting that I'm not looking for a serious relationship right now. Circumstances don't seem to be in my favor these days. I'm also not a huge fan of Chicagoland. Yeah, it's growing on me a bit, but it seems ridiculous to try to find a long-term connection in a place you aren't interested in inhabiting very long. So, there's that.
*Editor's note: I answered most of the questions part of this site when I was living in CA so not all of the explanations may make sense anymore.
