My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I only arrived in Chicago in September, so I'm still new and learning my way around. I've only gotten to know a few people here, so I'd absolutely love to make new friends!
I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. I'm really good at learning new things, but really bad at shaping my skills and knowledge into a career path. I'm hoping a fresh start in a new city will help me work that out.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was unemployed for a while, and finding a job in Rhode Island wasn't working out too well (we've been leading the country in unemployment--I applied to *volunteer* and didn't get a call back, it's crazy). So, since I've always wanted to live in a big city and I've got a friend I can stay with in Chicago, I'm freshly arrived here to try to find a job. I'm working retail again (better than nothing!) while continuing to send out my résumé for medical secretary positions--I'd love to find a job at a hospital and eventually pursue nursing. Update: Woo, I finally landed another job! It's a temp position for now, so I'm keeping the retail gig evenings and weekends, but I get to spend my days as a pre-cert coordinator for one of the hospitals here. Fun!

Before coming to Chicago, this summer I learned a bit about how to have a backyard vegetable garden. It's a lot more complicated than I realized, but making things grow--especially from seed--was incredibly satisfying. Sadly, I didn't get to see half of my veggies ripen. There were two butternut squash hanging on the vine that looked so close to being ripe, too :(
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...baking cookies and cupcakes.
...trying to do things myself (if I can order a part on ebay and I've got a repair manual, I don't need a mechanic, right???). Sometimes I'm even successful! And I don't mind too much when I'm not. It's still always a learning experience.
...traveling by myself (although I'm a little afraid to go anywhere I don't speak the language--not that I'll let that stop me).
...walking quickly in high heels.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is probably that I'm short?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Pop physics books (the kind that explain really complicated ideas in such a way that you can understand them without having a Ph.D.), sci-fi, young adult fantasy (I love re-reading the books I grew up on, like the Chronicles of Narnia), classics, etc., etc.
Movies: Sci-fi, MCU, indie, Woody Allen, random other stuff (on my computer right now you'll only find (500) Days of Summer and Filth, but I think the combination of the two of those pretty well sums up my tastes).
Shows: House, Bones, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Gossip Girl (shut up), The Daily Show

Btw, if you quote a book, tv show, movie, whatever, I probably won't get it, even if I've read or seen whatever several times. I just have a horrible memory for quotes. And names, I never remember names.

Music: Indie and/or British mostly, but (as everyone says) I like a bit of everything mostly. Except opera, I just can't get into it. I'm really odd about listening to specific music in different situations. My favorite band are Biffy Clyro, I like listening to Mogwai when I'm sad, or Sigur Ros when I need to feel better, or Beulah or Hey Mercedes or Damone when it's warm and sunny, or G!YBE or A Silver Mt. Zion or M83 when it's late and stormy....
Food: I really love Indian and Thai, and I'd like to branch out and try lots of other cultures' food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, iPod, camera, high heels, coffee, smartphone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game. things work or what things mean. I'm not great at school (I get bored or distracted very quickly), but I absolutely love to learn.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...probably at home looking through job listings, reading, editing photos, or something like that, to be honest.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wasn't too upset about leaving my family behind in Rhode Island, but I bawled like a baby about leaving the family pets. One of the dogs, who tended to hop up on my bed for about 15 minutes once I got in it but then move to the hallway to actually sleep, stayed with me all night--I think he knew I was upset. Of course, that just made me get more emotional. Charles isn't even technically my dog! He's my nephew's! I only just met him a few months ago! God, I'm almost tearing up now thinking about how I won't see the dogs or bunnies for at least another month or so.

Also, it seems I'm going against popular opinion to say this here, but I really don't like cats. When they're around, I'll kind of try to play with them, but I just don't get them.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over. want to be friends, you want to show me where all the cool kids hang out in Chicago, you want to hang out and watch Drunk History, you can tell me where in Chicago I can get the best falafel/diner breakfast/NY-style pizza, you want to go to Fermilab for one of their Ask-A-Scientist sessions.

Or if you have a large dog I can hug. I am dead serious.
