I am about to celebrate my 1 year anniversary as a resident of Chicagoland. I spent 18 years in Michigan, 7 years in Oklahoma, and now a year here. After spending the first 11 months in Illinois in Arlington Heights, I have been in Elgin since the end of October.
A little about me: I'm fascinated with the weather, and I'm presently pursuing a degree in meteorology. My ultimate career goal is to become a TV weatherman. I love to cook, and I'm quite good at it. I enjoy outdoorsy things, especially running, fishing, and golfing. I also have a soft spot for animals. I have a cat named Twister and a dog named Bailey, and I've been known to take in strays to find them homes.
Even though I have been here for about a year, my hectic work schedule - including weekends, evenings, and overnights - and upwards of 50 hours a week, has made it hard to meet people...outside of coworkers, that is. I would love to make some friends and go on a date or two.
