My self-summary
Just moved back to the STL less than a year ago. I was born and raised in Chicago and it will forever be my roots, but this city stole my heart.

Some fun facts, since I don't really know what to write here...
- I may be 27, but apple juice and cheerios (separate, not mixed) are still my favorite snack.
- I am most comfortable in sweats and a t-shirt, but don't mind dressing up as well.
- Hockey, rugby, barefoot in the sand, thunderstorms, music, photography, and books are a few of my favorite things.
- Guys with tattoos or who play an instrument or ride a Harley always seem to catch my eye. (These obviously are not a must)
- Nothing is better than relaxing nights surrounded by good friends, good family, and good food.
- I think everything in life is about faith.
- Captain Morgan/Kraken and I share a special bond.
- I can be kind of shy at first.
- I have a 1/4 sleeve and many other tattoos. (All with meaning to me... no tramp stamps here either...)
- I love taking long car rides and road trips - sometimes for no reason at all - and yes I do sing like I think I'm the next American Idol, although I can't really carry a tune.
- I own far too many hats.
- Hugs are my favorite.
- I want to learn how to play guitar and piano... and maybe drums.
- I love swings.. so if I'm ever having a bad day or you can't get a hold of me, check the nearest park's playground, I'll probably be on the swing-sets =)
- You're never too old to sit in and play board games...
- I still like to color aka I'm 5 at heart if you haven't gathered.
- I love to fish and camp. I may be a big city girl, but don't let that fool you, a quiet back road, hiking, outdoors = my happy place.
- If I could figure out how to rig it up, I'd probably have a hammock inside my apartment... One day...
What I’m doing with my life
- Working as a physical therapist
- Learning sign language & how to use chopsticks (And kinda failing miserably at both...)
- Trying to master rock climbing... I'm not so good. But it's fun!
- Hanging out with my pup, going on little runs with him (best 5k buddy ever!)
I’m really good at
- Getting myself into a little trouble (okay so really I'm just accident prone and like to have fun)
- Drawing/Writing/Photography (according to friends & family)
- Listening
- Witty comebacks
- Organizing (I'm a little bit of an organization freak...)
- Using "..." all the time... for no reason...
The first things people usually notice about me
My baby blues, so I've been told
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Tuesdays With Morrie, The Five People You Meet In Heaven, The Shack, The Alchemist, anything by Jodi Picoult really, To Kill A Mockingbird, A Lesson Before Dying, and so many more...

Movies: Anything scary or funny really... I'll watch anything though once... Some favorites - Boondock Saints, The Hangover, Elf, The Dark Knight, Amittyville Horror, Coach Carter, Remember the Titans... and so many more.

Music: Pretty much anything - Alternative, Top 40, Indie, Hip-Hop, Christian Rock, Punk...

Food: Chinese & Italian, yummmm =)
Six things I could never do without
- My camera
- My friends & family
- My faith/God
- My dog
- Comfy shorts & a sweatshirt
- Music

(In no particular order)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- My future
- Music
- Things I've heard or read about
- Life in general
- Faith
- Friends & Family (what they're up to, how they're doing, etc... we are all scattered over the Midwest and such so I don't get to talk to them/see them as often as I'd like)
- New things I want to do (travel, learn an instrument, make a difference)
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends - anything from being out and about or having a really chill night with friends watching movies, playing games, drinking, just hanging out...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is tough... I still have my baby blanket (Does that count? )
You should message me if
...You are an honest, funny, down-to-earth guy who isn't too macho too hold a girl's hand in public or open doors (but is still a tough guy at heart), and can spark up a conversation without needing everything pried out you... You like to have fun (maybe too much fun, at times), but doesn't mind chill nights hanging out at home watching movies and playing board games... You're outgoing and can bring out the best in a sometimes shy (at first) girl... You will dish out the sarcasm and little jokes and take it as well - without being a dBag... You will play catch with me, or go fishing with me, and go to the zoo with me and just enjoy each other's company...You want an honest, real, and serious relationship and aren't about playing games (aka don't bother if you're looking to get a quick piece of @$$, not happening)...
The two of us
