My self-summary
Pretty busy living life, but it'd be great to meet someone awesome. I particularly enjoy writing and reading and volunteer work and travel. I love Chicago and think it's one of the best cities in the history of the universe. Above all else I value honesty and kindness and a sense of humor.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in higher ed. I have master's degrees in creative writing and public administration. Creative writing is my first and greatest love, and following closely behind that is international development work. I am involved in a volunteer capacity with a couple of organizations focused on international development here in Chicago, which, for the time being, is my means of fulfilling this interest. I am also perpetually at work on some creative writing projects, and will forever be daydreaming about future travel opportunities.
I’m really good at
Keeping myself entertained. I'm pretty independent, and definitely require "me time" and personal space to work on projects. But I'm also affectionate and attentive and loyal -- the key, I think, is balance.

Less seriously: I make a mean pot of chili, sir.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm going to guess friendly and easy-going, with a dash of goofy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Sun Also Rises, Wuthering Heights, The Glass Castle, Lit, Wild, Truth and Beauty, Just Kids, An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination, The Answer to the Riddle is Me. Poetry by Lynda Hull, Adrienne Rich, T.S. Eliot, etc.

Movies: Almost Famous, All the President's Men, Shopgirl, Away We Go, Mona Lisa Smile. I enjoy watching movies, of course, but don't watch them often and definitely don't consider myself a movie buff.

Shows: Mad Men, Girls, Homeland, Masters of Sex, Orphan Black, Parks and Recreation, The Bridge, The Daily Show.

Music: The National, Blind Pilot, The War on Drugs, Dawn Landes, The Shins, Gregory Alan Isakov, The Rolling Stones, Feist, Ryan Adams, Aimee Mann, A. A. Bondy, Band of Horses, Bob Dylan.

Food: No seafood. Nothing with scales or an exoskeleton. No, thank you. Pass. Most other options will do.
The six things I could never do without
Ambition, ideas, literature, travel, coffee/tea, and writing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My writing projects. Global development issues. Whatever books I'm reading. Travel ideas. Life. Loved ones. Boys.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I automatically disqualify anyone whose screen name ends in "4U."

Also, I am allergic to your cat.
