My self-summary
Former ESL educator (classroom instructor in Korea and freelance tutor in the USA). Current Chicago greenhorn. Future owner of furniture from IKEA (Thanks for the giftcard, sis! What a great Christmas gift!)

I love conversations. They can be deep and intense, or silly and funny. I don't care. I am inspired either way.

I believe life is about treasuring experiences, sharing great moments with special people, and trying to make things better in whatever way you can.
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved from Florida to Chicago at the beginning of November, because that totally makes sense to do, and is a great idea. Fortunately winter was canceled this year, so I haven't been punished for my brilliant timing yet.

(*Sacrifices goat to the god of mild upper-Midwest winters*)
I’m really good at
Figuring out what word is on the tip of your tongue.

Balancing reason and intuition.

Keeping a completely straight face while saying something ridiculous.

The six things I could never do without
The giant playlist on the ipod I got 7 years ago that I add about one song to per month, and that I almost constantly leave on shuffle.
A good night's sleep!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future. But I should probably just leave that to Elon Musk.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with friends and feeling grateful for the weekend.
You should message me if
If smart, funny, honest, skinny, and nerdy guys are your jam.

You think people are basically decent and that the meaning of our lives are whatever we decide them to be.
