UPDATE: Engaged to her now! Even more thanks, OKC!
Ahh, an unguided essay with no prompts. Hmm, what to say. I'm 27, new in town, a college graduate, and in between phases of my life. If all goes well, next year I'll be in medical school going slightly crazy. But I'm not a one-dimensional science guy (although, I do love it). I have an artistic side. As dorky as it seems, I wanted to be a screenwriter for many years prior to my med school dreams.
In my spare time, I'm big into movies. Most particularly, I'm into 70's horror, but I'm aware that that's a very specific niche...I watch plenty of regular movies, too. The Muppets, for instance, was a fantastic movie.
Max Barry is my favorite author (Jennifer Government, Syrup, Company).
The Coen Brothers, Romero, and Raimi are my favorite directors, but my list of favorite movies is far too long to paste here. Just a smattering, though: No Country For Old Men, There Will Be Blood, Drag Me to Hell, the Dead Trilogy, O Brother Where Art Thou, I <3 Huckabees, Pan's Labyrinth, Alien and plenty of others.
I like a lot of genres of music, but mostly Indie and Classic Rock. Definitely some hip hop, a little techno/Dubstep too. Barenaked Ladies and The Decemberists are my favorite bands, though. Can't beat those witty lyrics! Muse is a close #3 because arpeggios are great!
I love all sorts of ethnic food but I have the lamest digestive disorder in the world, Celiac disease, so I can't have wheat which limits my choices substantially. Fortunately, sushi and Mexican are largely still on the menu so I might yet survive.
2) My dogs. They're awesome. I may have to let my parents keep them next year, which is somewhat heartbreaking.
3) The Bears/White Sox...okay, I probably COULD do without them but I wouldn't want to.
4) My friends! I left them all in the Midwest and I miss them!
5) My family. Some of them are here, others are in Michigan.
6) My kidneys. For obvious reasons.
And, apparently I match up really well with lawyers. They're all my best matches. So, calling all lawyers, I guess!
