[Oh, all right]

So, basically one of the best things I've ever been a part of just started. As I informed you, I am now writing for the Chicagoist daily, which rules. But the bonus, which I guess I didn't really even think about before, was the group of amazingly likeable and interesting people I would be conversing with because of it. Seriously, the Chicagoist staff is Team Awesome.

In other news, I just realized I don't remember the last time I had literally no crush. I'm sure it has happened before and I just can't think of it, but, in all honesty, right now is the first time in recent memory. I feel nothing romantic at all - at least nothing substantial enough to refer to as a crush (you know what I mean). It kind of blows, too, because crushes tend to distract me from the monotony and give me things to think about. Anyway, I hope my Mr. Right Now I Will Crush On You will come soon and give me something totally hopeless to yearn for. It gives me a sense of purpose in a chaotic world.

In other news, quick bites: I can't fing wait to graduate which is now officially officially this June. My brother and his girlfriend are coming to stay with me tomorrow night, which is exciting. I need to go on a road trip. I can't wait to start riding my bike again. This is the first time in a long time that I have just rambled on about my life on this blog, isn't it?

Okay, that's pretty much how it goes. I'm going to include a surveyish type thing below so you can learn some things about me other than my constant nonsense about booze, friends and how I'm going crazy. But I'll include it below because it's kind of lame, I suppose. The end.


DISCLAIMER: These are subject to change depending on mood, psychosis, breadth of knowledge, level of hunger, etc.
