- 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. The Walking Dead, Newsroom, Downton Abbey, and Game of Thrones are amazing substitutes, though. It's Always Sunny, Archer, Community, and The League hit me right in the funnies. Netflix is killing it, too, with House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. It's just a pity the last season of Arrested Development wasn't better.

I'm a fairly devoted Brewers fan. Miller Park is kinda my home away from home during the summer.
No, I am not a teenage girl.
