My self-summary
I love math and language - I graduated from UIC with my BS in Mathematics and minors in Spanish and Italian.
I enjoy terrible puns and clever word play.

I am all about the lolz and I enjoy inappropriate Family Guy/Cards Against Humanity/MPGIS style humor...cus why not?

I'm very serious about my work life but I can be a goofball when I'm not working. Heck, I can be a goofball at work.

Also, I feel like song lyrics or Mean Girls quotes should be used generously in conversation but only when they actually fit well. Don't try to force it or else you can't sit with us. ;)

Overall, I reckon I'm a chill guy looking for someone to join me in this wacky journey that is life. Someone to try to make laugh, or with whom to go out and experience new things, or even stay in and cuddle up with some Netflix. Or why not all of the above?
What I’m doing with my life
Working in management at a 3PL, improving my skill set and knowledge base, and taking whatever opportunities I can for career advancement.

My goal is to travel at least twice a year, not including any random road trips my friends and I get up to.

Also, balancing adulting with board/card game fun. My collection is growing and I'm looking forward to all the game nights.
I’m really good at
Getting caught up in awkward situations.

Trying to make the best of those awkward situations and having a good chuckle about them afterward.

Being filled with infectiously positive energy - at least, I like to think the positivity catches on. See. Positive!

Laughing way too hard and then my face turning different shades of red while my eyes tear up cus the lawlz are too intense.
The first things people usually notice about me
Mayhap that I can be pretty friendly.

Also that I use words like "mayhap" in written communication.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Dark Tower series, Mean Girls, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Moenia, food (I enjoy me all kinds of good eat).

See below for a more detailed list of things. I try to be open-minded so if there's something you like that you think I'd like, I'd check it out.

---------------------------------------------

The Alchemist, Ovid's Metamorphosis and Crónica de una muerte anunciada.

Anything with Eliza Dushku has my attention. Also Valentine's Day, Y Tu Mamá También, Amores Perros, Carne Trémula.

Some of the shows I currently keep up with are Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, Empire, Arrow, and Scandal. I also enjoy putting on random episodes of Will & Grace, Futurama, and Scrubs.

Shakira, Beyoncé, System of a Down, Lady Gaga, Incubus, Lacuna Coil, Eminem...just to name a few of my favorites to listen to.
The six things I could never do without
(in no particular order)
-Friends
-Laughter (usually caused by the above)
-Family
-Food
-Music
-R&R
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Present state, improvement opportunities, and future state.

How things tend to work out. You can't just sit there and let them happen, gotta work for it, but it's crazy how sometimes the pieces of life's puzzle just fit.

Finding new fun things to do with the friends.

Where I can get a delicious galette.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely, and unfortunately, at home after a week of working hard. Especially given that my friends are doing the same. But present me with the opportunity of going to a comedy show, play, musical, concert, etc., and I'm down.

Lately we've taken a liking to tactical lazer tag. A real good liking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Raised in Chicago, I've never been up to the Skydeck. I'll definitely have to make that happen and find someone to enjoy the experience with me.
You should message me if
"when you talk it's like a movie and it's making me crazy."

Lana del Rey lyrics aside-
You'd like to chat.
You want to suggest a board game.
You'd like to get to know me and would like me to get to know you.
You can think of any other reason to message me, or can't think of one but would still like to anyway..though I guess that's a reason in itself. :)
