I'm originally from Los Angeles. But I've lived in Chicago since September 2010 (I got the blizzard!). I came here for graduate school but fell in love with Chicago. I've been a sort-of-librarian since January 2011 and I'm super excited to start in on graduate school for Library Science at UIUC. You might know this already, but librarians are pathologically helpful. Since August 2012 I've been busy working my day jobs at a university library and at university archives, and volunteering with this really cool Chicago independent library (it's called the Read/Write Library) where we collect all kinds of neat independent chicago based literature and media and put on fun programming with the neighboring community. Getting involved with them is one of the best things I've done. I guess... my life is all about books and libraries and getting information to people. Or, more likely, getting people to information.
