Now that I'm in Chicago it's starting to open up the creative floodgates that used to run wild when I was in college. The floodgates that were locked up because being an adult isn't all it's cracked up to be, but at least I can rent a car, right? That's a cool perk.
Oh yeah, I'm a filmmaker. Howdy!
But seriously, it's a ton of work and takes up a lot of my time, but when I'm not doing that I'm attempting to exercise by the sheer virtue of exploring this city. Currently got a sweet path carved out that takes me through Andersonville and onto the lakefront. It's scenic and serene and peaceful and I love it. I also like those raccoons in Lincoln Park that come out to eat croutons that an old man feeds once in a while. They're pretty chill.
Other than that I've been spending a lot of time writing fake missed connections on Craigslist to keep my creative writing sharp. "I saw you in the bread aisle, but the only buns I wanted weren't on a shelf" is mine if you ever come across it.
Haha, ahhhhh I'm just kidding, I don't have a dentist.
Speaking of, I forget names easily. I should probably put that in the "Things I'm good at" section, but you might notice it quickly in a social setting. I will literally forget someone's name 10 seconds after being told their name about 90% of the time. Unless it's a unique name like Chrysannalisa or someone who actually goes by Zachariah instead of Zach like a weirdo.
1) L.A. Confidential
2) Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
4) Dawn of the Dead (original)

7) Shaun of the Dead
9) Defending Your Life
10) The Fall
Disclaimer: I removed "The Usual Suspects" from #3 because even though that movie is perfect, you see it once and the magic is gone on account of the twist ending. Just know I love that movie, as well as many others who have come and gone (Looking at you, "...Cuckoo's Nest")
2) Just kidding, I love lists
3) What am I supposed to be doing again?
Sorry, OKCupid told me to write that. Stop being creepy, OKCupid.
Bonus points if you understood the Gretchen reference.
