Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, name's Eddie, and I'm a programmer. I'm currently living in
Champaign, but I'll be moving up to Grand Rapids in a month or
I've lost a lot of weight (80+ lb since the last time I updated
this profile) and that's a big part of my life now, so expect a
bunch of self-depreciating fat jokes and a lot more activity that
you'd expect. I'm not looking for anyone who isn't leading an
active and healthy life, been down the giant person road before and
that life is behind me for good.
I'm also the biggest Colts fan anyone will ever meet. I eat, sleep
and breathe the Colts.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a programmer by trade, and I'm working on losing a lot of
weight right now. After that, I want to go back to pursue a degree
in chemistry. I spent a lot of my early 20s self-destructing, and
I've spent the better part of the last two years putting the pieces
back together. I'm working on moving up to Michigan in April and
looking forward to building a whole new life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I must admit I don't read as much as I should, but when I do it's
usually a book about brewing beer or programming, or the occasional
foray into science fiction.
As far as TV shows go, I'm a total junkie for television, so if
I've heard of it, I've probably watched it. I watch TV at the gym
when I run, so I have plenty of time to watch watch watch... my
favorite shows of all time are Friday Night Lights, Roseanne,
Parenthood, Battlestar Galactica, and The Sopranos. I primarily
enjoy shows where I feel like the characters are real people, even
if they're not necessarily doing anything exciting; I'd rather
watch an interesting character do boring things than
And then there's the NFL, my one true love. I'll save everyone the
trouble of hearing my rant about how it's the best thing in the
universe, but suffice it to say I neeeeeed my NFL fix every time
there's a game on. I haven't missed a Colts game in years and I
don't intend to start - and it's a rare time I miss even a lame
Thursday Night game.
I don't watch as many movies as I should, but when I do, I usually
watch them two or three times and really overthink them. Except for
cheesy horror movies, those will always be my greatest weakness
that I can never resist.
As far as food goes, I try to watch what I eat, so I try not to eat
a bunch of garbage, but sometimes cheating is absolutely necessary.
I like to try to expand my palette and cook here and there (I have
fantasies of winning the next Masterchef!), but mostly I throw
money at nice food once or twice a week, and eat very little during
the rest of the week. I'm an intermittent fasting convert and I'll
gladly talk your ear off about the virtues - physical and spiritual
- of fasting!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My dog, Emma - she's the most important thing in the world,
2. My phone/computer - it's how I get the bills paid and I'm an
internet junkie/nerd, what can I say?
3. My fitbit - I've become a fitness weirdo since I started on my
weight loss journey and the constant stream of data is one of the
things that keeps my motivation going
4. My car - the idea of not being able to pack a bag and just
fuckin' go is terrifying to me, and when my car is in the shop, I
get terrible anxiety. It's not that I'm planning on leaving any
time soon so much as having the option to go is reassuring.
5. My sister - we have a really interesting relationship where we
fight as much as not, but I love my sister very deeply and we're
always there for each other. If I had to lose every other member of
my family to keep her, I would.
6. Weed - really, I'm a drug addict.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually chilling with a few friends. Sometimes we go out for drinks
and dinner, sometimes it's in with a bong and a movie, sometimes
it's video games. I like my small circle of close friends, and we
usually find something to do. If not, I'm okay spending an evening
in alone with my dog, she's a better person than most people
