My self-summary
Originally from Maryland, I went to college in Atlanta, Georgia. Worked there for two years before moving to Chicago 7 years ago for law school. Graduated in May 2011 and am now back in the working world. I've come to love the city, particularly its simplistic beauty and layout. My humor has been noted by friends to be a mix of laughing at the world/dark humor/quirky cultural references. INFJ.

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms." - HDT

The six things I could never do without
Nothing really. I'm pretty adaptable. However, most people probably have a baseline:
(1) a family that cares
(2) decent health (so you can actually do something)
(3) an occupation that pays the bills
(4) some form of continuing education (internet, etc.)
(5) some sense of purpose (mutable)
(6) an interesting mix of optimism and pessimism.
