Born and raised in Minnesota, i've been here all my life and it's all I know. I like it here a lot, i'm definitely a sheltered suburban kid at heart, and I like having a nice downtown nearby.
It's really hard to describe my personality. I'm definitely shy when meeting someone for the first time, but then I'm quick to warm up to them and I show my true quirky side to me. I guess I would call myself a nerd, but that word in itself is very ambiguous to me. I always try to treat others with the utmost respect, help others, and try to be the nicest person I can be, because those are the types of people I admire the most. I think my greatest trait (or one that I can safely say is true) is that I'm open to new things. New music. New food. New people. New ideas. I'm becoming more and more self motivated, school-wise and career-wise now. I finally am passionate about what I study in school, and that has paid a great dividend to my motivation and hard work. I try to be good at everything, but I think sometimes that just makes me mediocre in a lot of things (I'll try anything though).
I'm an avid sports fan, and I love to partake in any athletic activity. I would say basketball is my first true passion, but I would play any sport and have fun.
I love my friends and family, because I know there is someone to talk to. I would consider myself a listener first, talker second. Music plays a big role in my life, whether it is playing piano, listening, or making music on my computer (shameless plug to my soundcloud page: https://soundcloud.com/arjmoney ). I am almost always listening to music, and I could have a conversation about the subject matter with someone for hours (although I could probably talk to someone with similar musical interests for longer than those who don't share the same interests as me).
So that's me, as best as I could describe myself without making people read for hours. It's tough to convey your personality (or life, even) in just plain text, so if you want to know more about me, or just want to talk, feel free to message me!

This list is ever expanding/changing, and there are plenty of others I could put here. I like to listen to the Current (89.3 FM), and am open to listen to anything! I love hearing recommendations for new artists.
Food: Cheese! Cookies! Pizza! Taco Bell! Haha I would say my taste buds are not the most dignified, but I truly do love food. I am open to try anything new, and usually like a lot of things (except vegetables. Screw that.)
