I believe that everyone should put their shopping carts in the cart return, that cherry Pull 'n Peel Twizzlers are a miracle and that keeping score is no fun, in games or in life. Though I've (mostly) outgrown catching fireflies at dusk and playing kickball in the street, childhood holdovers I will always love are reading books during thunderstorms and taking naps. I’m in love with Chicago since moving here nine years ago. I know it's an unpopular opinion but I love the extreme seasons here--all of them, including winter. While I'm not an in-your-face extrovert I do always seem to make friends wherever I go, whether it’s in the Jewel across the street or on a boat in the Beagle Channel. I have an amazing circle of close friends but I’m very ready to meet Someone. When that happens I will still spend time with my friends, expect that he still spends time with his, and get to know each other's. I don’t put any pressure on JDates because you never really know how you'll hit it off until you meet face to face. So let's do that.
