My friends list has been fairly quiet lately, so I'm looking to meet some new people.

I live in Chicago with my husband, our three cats and two turtles. Among our cats, we have a Bengal (Delirium), a Siamese (Faust) and a very old and very gray rescue (Vinnie). I'll occasionally post photos of my cats, although the bulk of my posts are text-intensive.

I have my BA and MA in Philosophy and will be pursuing my MFA in Writing (fiction) this summer. I've been writing fiction since I was about nine years old and, so far, have written a few novel manuscripts but not done anything with them. My current project, which I hope to work on while in grad school, takes place in purgatory.

When not writing, I also like to paint. I mostly work in acrylic, although I recently started working in encaustic and have been a little obsessed with it as of late. Additionally, I like to travel whenever I get the chance. Over the past couple of years, I haven't been able to travel as much as I'd like, though previously, I've taken numerous trips to Europe as well as the Caribbean and South America. I'm really hoping to get to the Galapagos Islands in the next year and I'd like to make it to Russia in the not-too-distant future.

I'm also interested in personality typing systems like the MBTI and the Enneagram.
