My self-summary
"No one falls in love by choice, it is by CHANCE. No one stays in love by chance, it is by WORK. No one falls out of love by chance, it is by CHOICE." -Friend who doesn't remember where they read it.

I'm pursuing the dream of doing what I as a career. I'm laid back (don't sweat the small stuff) and very easy going (make friends easily). I work hard for what I want.
I have a laugh that can be heard for blocks and seem to get along with everyone I meet, except for those I don't. I can also be witty, sarcastic, or completely inappropriate; hopefully at a time when it's fully appropriate to be so, but on occasion, maybe I'll misstep. Call me out on it, give me a hard time, I'll just respect you more for it.

Oh and I'm a Cubs fan. Which should tell you a lot about my character.

I am sharp, sarcastic, and silly. You're gonna like me. That's just a given, unless you don't, maybe you're just having a bad day.
What I’m doing with my life
Any and all things that inspire or delight.
I’m really good at
Poker and movie trivia. Listening empathetically without trying to fix your problems/worries. Programming the VCR. Following directions. Reading (all the words). Being a great friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. A Confident effervescence. That's just a guess. Maybe it's my earlobes...wouldn't that be weird?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV: Fargo, The Americans, Catastrophe, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, The Wire, The Knick, Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Justified, Family Guy, Scrubs, Mad Men, Suits.

Books: Catch 22, Harry Potter, choose your own adventure ;-), whatever play i might be reading, LOTR, Biographies

Movies: This list could be really long (i own close to 500) Garden State, Blazing Saddles, Reservoir Dogs, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Office Space, Shopgirl (the book was great), The Princess Bride, Wet Hot American Summer, The Big Lebowski, Kissing Jessica Stein, Snatch, High Fidelity, Judd Apatow movies, Kevin Smith movies, Almost Famous, When Harry Met Sally, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Christopher Guest movies, independent cinema, Sin City, Tim Burton movies, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, Eddie Izzard

Music: I love it all (except maybe country, but even there i can dig the dixie chicks, willie nelson, johnny cash). Sara Bareleis, Adele, dave matthews band, U2, Sheryl Crow, opera, Green Day, Aerosmith, Journey, Michael jackson, basically if the people who wrote it are talented musicians, i will probably appreciate it.

Food: I'm a late bloomer when it comes to food, didn't really get into trying new things until I went to college, but now I'll pretty much try anything. Love mexican food, Thai, Sushi, a good BURGER! oh, and I love cooking, so let's get a shopping list and a recipe and go to town!
The six things I could never do without
My friends, my DVR, good food, iphone (really/ did i just say that?), my family's support, music, my mac (that's 7, i know....I can deal with it, can you?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to balance it all. Am I facing the right direction?
On a typical Friday night I am
probably working, or out with my friends for dinner and a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There are some clothes on the floor of my bedroom, but the rest of my apartment is nice and clean.
You should message me if
You want to meet a genuine nice guy who's looking for someone awesome. (oh, you have to be awesome. that's kinda implied)

or you also don't think you're going to meet someone worthy of your time who's drunk in a bar. (I mean, i guess there's people who've done it, but that's not where I'm looking)
