Within the past year, I changed career paths and moved to Philadelphia because I wanted to live in a big city. I’m not from here, but I really enjoy it so far. Rather than give you a whole paragraph to read, this list about sums me up… as much as a list can.
Some Things I Am:
A Sports Fan – Grew up around Chicago with a bat in my hands… yes, I love all the Chicago teams (except the White Sox). Skiing has always been a huge part of my life, and brings my family together. If your profile has a picture of you on the slopes, there's a strong chance that I'll ask you about it right off the bat.
Passionate About Food – I like to try new restaurants, new foods and new ways to cook. Ask me about my food-related New Year’s Resolution.
Funny – Who wouldn’t say that? My humor is different… I like puns, making stupid jokes and laughing at them when nobody else does.
Nerdy – When it comes to sports, definitely. When it comes to English, I enjoy robust conversations about grammar, specifically the merits of the Oxford Comma.
Driven – This might sound weird, but I enjoy competition not so much with other people, but with myself, to see how much better I can be.
Loyal – If someone takes a chance on me, I don’t forget it. Because I live so far from home, I treat my friends like family, because they are to me. I’d do anything for them.
Kind – At least, I’d like to think so.
Humble – May have added this just for the irony.
Some Things I Am Not:
Tall – But I’m big where it counts. My heart, I’m talking about my heart.
Looking Forward to Passover – Always loved it as a kid, but haven’t been able to go home for several years so it’s tough. Family Seders were always a good time.
