So here we are…about 15 years after my first blog post. Today is my birthday and after much thought, I’ve decided to relaunch this blog. I’m sure you’re wondering who I am and why you’re here. I guess I’ll get that out of the way. My more formal bio is going to be posted soon, but I’ll give you all the Cliff’s Notes (a clue to how old I am) now.

I was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago. I’m a product of the Chicago Public Schools system, although I spent the majority of my life in “magnet” or “gifted” schools. I say that to say…I’m a nerd. I’ve been IQ tested. No, I won’t share my score because assumptions come with that number and I don’t fit in with others I’ve met.

I have a nerdy career in digital marketing that I love. I love gadgets and still play video games, although not nearly as often as I used to. Mostly shooters and RPGs. I use to get down on Live and/or 2K, but haven’t in so long that I’m sure my game is trash now. Sports games have come a long way since I was a kid.

I’m a foodie and globetrotter. I love trying new foods during my travels, so you’ll see a lot of that on here I’m sure. I’m an adrenaline junkie. I like fast cars, jumping out of perfectly good planes, riding motorcycles, and rollercoasters. I’m an artist. I draw and paint, as well as write poetry and songs. I’m a film junkie. Took a classic film class in college, and you can randomly spot me at a movie on a weekday. I own a few businesses. I’m lots of other things, but that’s enough for now.

Here you’ll find lots of things. I’ll keep them sorted so you don’t have to look at stuff you aren’t interested in. This is a sneak peek inside of a mind that never sleeps. Buckle up your seatbelt, I’m sure it’ll be a bumpy ride.

Love you all,

Ms. ChiGyrl
