Hello!

My name is Daniel. I'm 18 years old, and a freshman at Northwestern University, not majoring in anything in particular yet (perhaps Psych, but I'm also interested in law and traveling / culture / learning languages - I speak German and some Spanish, and want to learn French and Russian).

I'm from a small town in Wisconsin, which growing up was always boring and uncultured to me, but now that I live in Chicago, I'm growing to appreciate certain aspects of the culture and how they've helped shape me into who I am today.

At this point in my life, I'm working on balancing all the aspects of my life - being a good student, being a strong Christian man, finding a good woman to marry, and finding a career that'll fit my life goals.

So far I've found some great advice on AoM, and I'm sure I'll find a lot more.

"Rachael Ray has a series of easy recipes for guys.  Just be sure to keep your mind on the food and not her boobs. Seriously though, learn some simple basics that go a long way like, roast chicken, pasta sauce, and omelets."
