- Between work and play: Career is important. You should generally enjoy anything you do for 40+ hours a week! And there's nothing inherently wrong with wanting to get ahead. But I'm a firm believer in "working to live" and not "living to work". Life is what happens once you leave the office.
- Between optimism and realism: Be hopeful. Work to make the world a better place. Accept that things won't always work out the way you want them. Embrace those difficulties and turn them to your advantage whenever possible. Get as much enjoyment as you can out of every opportunity.
- Between personal and social: My weeknights are generally quiet, consisting of a bike ride, a book, a board or card game, or Netflix. On the other hand, I'm the most likely among my friends to organize a night out or a weekend away. Drinks on the town, tailgating a Brewers game, screaming our lungs out at Great America, huddling around a campfire up north...
In a perfect world, Firefly was never cancelled. Until network executives come to their senses, Westworld, Game of Thrones, Archer, It's Always Sunny, and The Crown are great substitutes.
My musical tastes trend towards EDM these days, though you'll also catch me singing along to rock & pop from the 80s on.

During the summer, I'm likely in Milwaukee at a Brewers game, playing with my nieces & nephews, or hanging out in my hammock.
If you voted for Trump, Walker, or Johnson, move on.
