My name is Brigid Barjaktarevic and I live in Albany Park, in Chicago.

I was born during an ice storm and full eclipse of the sun. I have since failed utterly to live up to the portents I was born under, but I’ve had a pretty good time doing so.

I’m married and have a child, and don’t have a driver’s license.

If I had to pick 2 food items to subsist on for the rest of my life, it would be pizza and Coca-Cola.
