I grew up in North Carolina, but spent 8 years in Saint Louis before I moved to NJ. I feel kind of spiritually midwestern if that's a thing.
Also trying to learn some coding/computer stuff. Linux, Python, C, others. It would be useful for my career but I also enjoy that it uses a totally different part of the brain than anything else I do.
Coming up with ambitious reading or cooking projects when I have other responsibilities (see the above comment about learning to code).
