I was born and raised in Memphis and went to college in Indiana. I moved to East Haven for a job, and I'm very happy thus far. The industry in which I'm employed, especially the part of it in which I work, absolutely fits the mantra of "love the job you do, and you'll never work a day in your life". Having never been to this part of the country, I'm very eager to explore, particularly local food locales, but I plan on getting around to the scenery too lol.
I've never had any "real pets" before - just fish. I like dogs and don't mind cats, but I've never really looked into getting one for the very simple reason that I honestly don't know how to take care of them heh... I'd be willing to learn, I think, provided I had a good teacher. I also can't ride a bicycle or ice or roller skate - poor sense of balance (but I've only ever slipped and fallen on winter ice before.... go figure). A couple years ago, I had a friend literally holding the seat and running along with me, but it didn't help. I find myself frequently multi-tasking, and sometimes I don't even notice it. When I meet a person who makes references to pop culture or movies/TV shows/music, it grabs my attention and makes me think you're awesome.
