My self-summary
Chicago-born but raised in North Carolina. I moved up here about three years ago for six months and then decided to try something new so I packed up and moved to China and then quite a few other places. Now, I'm back in town after two years abroad in Asia and Central America and looking to meet some new people. I live in Lakeview, am going to school and working at the same time so I am not tryin to do the whole night club or over-crowded bar thing.

I love movies, music, and traveling. I'm a total fan of history and try to learn at least one new thing every day no matter how useful/inane (so I kick ass at Jeopardy and pub trivia). I used to host trivia nights at expat bars in China, South Korea, and Nicaragua.

I'm working and going to school it'd be a nice change to get to know some people that aren't just classmates. In other words I'm basically just looking to meet and hang out with some new people.
What I’m doing with my life
Going to graduate school for Copywriting and teaching swimming during the day.
I’m really good at
-Pub Trivia
-Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon (I rule at that game)
-Making playlists on my iPod (when I decide to be patient enough to go through all my music and create one, ugh)
-Pouring a perfect pint
-Traveling (I know this requires an explanation)
-Locating "Where in the World Carmen Sandiego" actually is.
-GoldenEye 64
-Halloween (the most bestest and awesomest holiday ever)

Six things I could never do without
Shark Week
and my Passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Way too much stuff.
-Shiny things.
-When am I going to be able to get the English Bulldog I want so badly (I think I'll name him Frank) and if he'll get along with the dog I already have (because he can be kind of a dick to other dogs)?
-Did I leave the iron on?
-Bread, Apples, Very Small Rocks.
-How to escape from disastrous scenarios that will most likely never occur but it's good to be prepared for.
-What was the name of the bad guy in "Tron"?
On a typical Friday night I am
Fighting Crime
Just glad the week is over and want to have some fun usually at a dive bar or if it's been a really long week I might just chill, watch a movie and then go out on Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I flinch and turn my head away when opening and closing shampoo bottles because one time when I closed a bottle the cap snapped shut and shot a drop of shampoo right in my eyes. It burned for about an hour.
Also, I'm completely terrified of clowns.
(I saw "It" and "Killer Clowns from Outer Space" when I was really little and it messed with my fragile little mind)
You should message me if
-If you have are still reading this.
-You want to win some prizes/drinks at trivia.
-You enjoy going to a stand-up comedy show, watching some good movies, and listening to some music (all at the same time).
-You like to have good conversations or have cool stories to tell about whatever.
-Want a challenging match of "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon."
-You like just being yourself, everyone has flaws and it makes them all that more interesting.
-Don't think it's bizarre that I took a bunch of the tests (I think they are interesting no matter how much I might disagree with the result).
-You aren't a Hipster.
