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? He loves storytelling much, much more, and he is thrilled to be a part of this wondrous journey.

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.

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.

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 …

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 …

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 …
