About "Something about yourself."
My upbringing (downbringing?) was in Michigan. Am in the undistinguished birth-order position (4th of 5), of a secular (but not secular enough for birth control) Irish-Catholic family, which was disrupted by various tragedies. Hence, my ever-present desire to distinguish myself SOMEHOW, yet also be a fly-on-the-wall observing. I listened to records alone a lot when I was in high school, when (for good or ill) musical taste was formed.
Moved to Seattle in 1997. Love it here, but miss the simplicity of life and intimate aspects of smaller towns (Marquette).
Am very idealistic at heart. INFP In Myers-Briggs typology http://keirsey.com/personality/nfi
