A recent email

I love to come into the city and do so as often as I can. My sister is living there and I have a few friends that I have been crashing on. (They don't mind because I cook). I like to explore new restaurants and bars in Chicago. I am living in Naperville but recently moved back to the area from Portland, Maine. I have not decided yet if I will stay in Naperville or move into the city. I am working in Naperville and studying to take the GRE so that I can go back to get my M.A. in Education and Credentials for Grades K-6. I do lots of non-for-profit work and with a combination Political Science and Education degree I am hoping to continue working for children's rights. I think one interesting thing about me is that I used to live in South Africa and worked at a children's home in Cape Town for a year. It was a wonderful learning experience and has inspired me to a great extent.

Among other things, I enjoy sewing. It is a good hobby for cheap birthday presents and lots of dresses for myself. I prefer summertime because I love to go hiking and camping. I am not great at long distance running but getting to the top of a mountain after hours of hiking is an incredibly rewarding experience. I recently climbed the tallest mountain in Vietnam, it was amazing!
I think it is great that you like to spend a lot of time with your friends. My friends are very important to me.

What type of personality do you have? What type of relationship are you hoping to find?

be my baby one more time....or maybe

Hey peoples,

Words have power. Words can hurt, Words can heal. Which side are You on?

I tell you what, I know what side the band I'm posting today is on. Let this band's word's wash over your body into every hole and cavern and trench and navel. I like this band, also, I know some people (dan) think they are emo so I don't want to give you guys the wrong impression about my musical tastes so I included a kewl ben gibbard track at the end. Again, many times do I have to say this. Dan was saying hurtful things the other night, and he tried to make up for it by immediately saying healing things. No. It doesn't work like that "Dan", you have to choose a side. So choose already. You're move dan.
