The Essentials

University of Illinois alumni, 2007. Diehard Cubs fan. I love all my boys in blue but Lee, Ramirez, DeRosa (even though he's a Cardinal now), Theriot, Wells and Johnson hold a special place in my heart. Okay, let's be serious, I love pretty much every Cub on the active roster but Reed Johnson is my Cubs baseball husband and Randy Wells is my boyfriend. 62.5% Irish. Illini basketball fan. I make mistakes but I don't have regrets. I'm totally random sometimes. I trust too easily and love too much. I have the best friends a girl could ask for. I love reading for fun. I take 4 hour naps. Music and movies are my life. If I could, I'd spend all my time in downtown Chicago or at Wrigley Field. James Patterson books inspire me and I want to write a novel someday. I believe life isn't worth it if you're not having fun. I'm always the one taking pictures. Mojitos and Captain Morgan are my weaknesses. Sunny days always make me smile. I love meeting new people. If you want to add me, just drop a comment in my friends only post and let me know :)

What Else You Should Know

I'm way too sarcastic and I can be annoying sometimes. I think out loud and I try to make good out of a complete disaster. I'm simple and I hate things that get too complicated. I'm only inspired for about a day, and then it all goes away. I cry when I'm supposed to laugh, and laugh when I'm supposed to cry. I don't lie about who I am, because then you forget who you are. I don't believe in putting people into categories based on what you think rather than what you know. I don't believe that life was ever meant to be an easy ride and that at some point, we're all meant to fall off the tracks. I don't believe in playing games, because someone will always lose. I don't believe in regrets, because if you do, you lose sight of living and will live always wishing. I choose to live in my own little world, because sometimes, the real one is too much. I'm incredibly imperfect. But that's just fine.

"Baseball breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." - A. Bartlett Giamatti

"Baseball means what those of us who hold it in our hearts need it to mean. It can be a pastime, or it can be something by which we measure the seasons of our lives, or it can be something that serves metaphorically for the battles, the triumphs, and the tragedies of any form of human content. I prefer it to be a game- and I think, more than anything else, it tells me that there's something in the world that I can count on- and it's never going to let me down. If there is a magic in baseball, I'm sure that's what it is."
