My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*changed my username as mentioning a trombone in it really doesn't describe me anymore; this works doubly as (a) I'm indeed shy, and (b) my quick shorthand signature basically looks like S Hy ... so I really should have changed it to SHyGuy1219. oh well, that's for Nov. 18*

I'm currently an assistant manager at a location for a major drugstore chain/pharmacy (catch the hint?) in Michigan City, Indiana. Before that, I spent a year at Luther High School South in Chicago as a high school math and physics teacher while in a graduate program serving underprivileged schools. Unfortunately, that ended.

I graduated in 2007 with a degree in meteorology and mathematics from Valparaiso University. Before that I grew up in Seabrook, N.H., on the seacoast of the Atlantic Ocean. Sometimes I wonder why I didn't stay in the Northeast, then I look at property costs out there compared to here and I quickly remember why.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As meteorology is no longer an option for me, I'm hoping to at some point get an MBA. Unfortunately as those programs require night classes, and I work most evenings, I'm on hold for now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My math skills used to be impeccable but now I'm starting to lose some of my functionality in that regard. I used to play trombone and tuba, but stopped during college other than occasional pep band events. I could say other things I used to be good at, but then it would just remind me that I really need to work on shaping up and getting back some of the talents I once had, as well as trying to develop new ones.

However, I have developed kick-ass skill with spades and euchre, which will of course get me absolutely nowhere in life.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently, I'm tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Big Trouble, other Dave Barry novels, and other things in the humor or sports categories.

Movies: UHF, the Narnia movies, most Pixar movies, the Rush Hour movies, some other comedies. I'm not usually a huge drama or action fan.

Shows: The problem with the TV I like is that, typically, whatever I watch gets cancelled. So as a result I don't invest in much episodic television. I currently watch a lot of sports, Jeopardy!, Wheel of Fortune, and other sporadic game shows. I'm a fan of Futurama, Family Guy, The Simpsons, etc. I'm excited, though, that my old favorite show, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, is back on the air, even if it's not what it used to be.

Music: There's very little I don't like, and when I think there's an artist I don't like, he or she releases something that I end up liking, and therefore I can no longer dislike them. My three favorite artists are The Alan Parsons Project, Big & Rich, and "Weird Al" Yankovic.

Food: Chicken, noodles, potatoes, chocolate, Annie's white shells and cheddar macaroni and cheese. Not all in the same dish, though.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Faith
2) Family
3) Friends
4) Corrective lenses
5) Car
6) Lists that have as many entries as advertised
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why everyone out here says "car-mel" when the spelling so obviously means it's pronounced "care-uh-mel".
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At work. The joys of retail!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own a minivan. For the legroom. I'm not a soccer mom. Yet.

Through odd circumstances, I live at home. (Yeah, I know I'm not living where I grew up -- long story.) Figured I'd throw that out there as that's an issue with many people.
