I was born/raised in Chicago, college educated in Las Vegas (UNLV), and now I'm back in Chicago as a jazz musician (vocalist)/business owner. I grew up an only-child under hard-working entrepreneur parents who were barely home, I never got to really see anyone while I was growing up, and I was always bad at making friends.
My best years were at UNLV and I made a lot of friends, but now that I moved back to Chicago as a working adult, I just find it hard to really meet new friends. My wife is also having a hard time... it's like we're strangers in our own hometown!
Anyway enough about me, I'm just glad to find others like myself here.
