My self-summary
I'm an easygoing person with a lot of different interests. I'm trying to take advantage of living in such a great city and hoping to meet new people to share in the adventures.

I have a pretty good sense of humor and I am usually willing to try new things. In general, I'm pretty laid back with a dash of hyper.

I am a huge college football fan and my Saturday's in the fall are dedicated to watching football and I never miss a University of Michigan game, Go Blue! In general I enjoy watching sports but I have many other interests.
What I’m doing with my life
I am working at an education non-profit with a focus on education policy and research and I love it. I am considering taking up photography and looking for a good beginner class. I'm always, always planning a trip to somewhere; sometimes to visit friends and family and other times to visit new places. Right now, I really want to go to Brazil, Ireland, and southern Spain. I'm also trying to visit all of the great museums and such things in Chicago.
I’m really good at
I am a pretty good listener and people often come to me for advice. I'm pretty good at adapting to the situation and just enjoying life. Once I decide to make something happen, I'm good at the follow through.
I'm also quite great at having spontaneous dance parties and bursting into song at random moments.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height; I'm a shorty. After that, people notice my laugh and that I'm friendly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm really bad at picking favorites but I will give it a try and there is no guarantee if you talk to me tomorrow that I would have the same list.

A Prayer for Owen Meany
My Sister's Keeper
The Audacity of Hope
Pride and Prejudice
A Separate Peace

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, the direction we are heading as a country, life, what to read next, what is really important in my life, what I should eat for dinner, should I book the trip I have been thinking about, or maybe I should just move to Buenos Aires, when will I finally tour the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. I'm always scheming something.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm out having fun, at home reading a book, or having dinner with friends. It really just depends on my mood.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan and well, proud of it.
You should message me if
You should message me if you have a good sense of humor, like to travel, read, discuss politics or the latest movie everyone is talking about, introduce people to new things that you love to do, are passionate about something in your life, and like to have fun.
The two of us
