Duo is a fallen engineer, an unrepentant wallflower, and a Level 3 baker. He enjoys reading by the lake, walking in the rain, and inviting strangers into his home. None of these things really matters. For now, simply gaze upon his picture. See how much he loves bubbles?

Profile of the Disenfranchised: The Modern Necromancer

Duo, 29, is a mild-mannered man living in Lakeview, a semi-affluent neighborhood in Chicago. During the day, he writes test questions and tutors high school students. In the evening, he cooks, reads, and plays video games. However, in the middle of the night, Duo has other pursuits, pursuits he was hesitant to share at first because they are so stigmatized in today’s world.

TGI Friday’s or How I Destroyed My Dignity

Recently, Caity Weaver, a Gawker reporter, stayed at a TGI Friday’s for 14 hours, eating nothing but mozzarella sticks, in a bid for 5 days of (allegedly) paid vacation and internet infamy. Fueled by my need to execute the deal better and egged on by my peers, I would do the unthinkable: I would venture into TGI Friday’s and destroy my dining dignity.

My friend Jillian decided to tag along. This is our story.

208 Pennies for Your Thoughts

The way I see it, there are only a handful of ways coins end up on the sidewalk. Coins are either placed on the sidewalk intentionally or dropped on the sidewalk by neglect. In the case of the task, because the coins have to be glued, intention is implied. People who intentionally glue coins on …

Dearly Beloved

March 28th, 2014 Hello, I received Aida’s letter in the mail today. It was… a little soggy. The text was still legible, but the picture was ruined. Aida sent me a picture of the original though. Want to see? I met Aida last June via CouchSurfing. She never stayed with me, but we baked Totoro-shaped …

Breaking the Code

The completion of this month’s task brought me to an unlikely place. Notre Dame! Tucked away from the gilded dome and Touchdown Jesus, the biology building at Notre Dame is an unremarkably squat, rectangular brick building. There, my friend Matt is working on something that will hopefully make the world a better place. Matt is …

Understanding the CouchSurfing Experience

I’m an active member of CouchSurfing. The premise of the website is quite simple: traveling is fun, lodging is expensive, and hotels are a shitty way to see the world, so why not introduce travelers to hospitable locals? While I don’t travel much myself, I do love meeting new people, especially those willing to rely …

Here’s a Man

Here’s a man who is six feet tall. Here’s a man who is 5’11”. And a half. Here’s a man who is maybe 5’11”. In the morning. With shoes on. Height is subjective. Here’s a man who bakes because he loves creating things with his own hands. Here’s a man who bakes because baking is …

My Other Icing Is Made of Fire

It’s hard to write about fire. None of the descriptions we give fire, be it orange, small, or 5-alarm, can fully capture fire’s mesmeric motion and dangerous beauty.
