Oof, this might take awhile.
BOOKS: "Treasure Island", "The Lady And The Unicorn" and "The Girl
With A Pearl Earring" by Tracy Chevaliers, anything by Cormac
McCarthy, "Cat's Cradle", "The Jaguar Princess" by Clare Bell (this
one has a shitty title but a freaking incredible story). I also
love anything David Sedaris has ever written. Harry Potter and the
collected works of Tamora Pierce will always hold a special place
in my heart.
My favorite non-fiction books are "Napoleon's Buttons: Seventeen
Molecules That Changed History" by Penny Le Couteur and Jay
Burreson, "The Lucifer Principle" by Howard Bloom, and
"Extraordinary Popular Delusions And The Madness Of Crowds" by

love (I'm a HUGE movie buff), but I will say that my top seven are
Swimming With Sharks (1994), Stranger Than Fiction (2006), Stage
Door (1937), The Third Man (1949), Road To Perdition (2004), The
Secret Of Roan Inish (1994), and 12 Monkeys (1995).

Story, Dead Like Me, Drop Dead Diva, Seinfeld, Castle, Elementary,
Modern Family, Game Of Thrones, Scrubs, Sherlock, The Walking Dead,
Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, Hannibal, Orphan Black, and Orange Is The
New Black. (I have a difficult time focusing on one thing at a
time, so usually if I'm doing something like homework or writing
I'll have a show on in the background, unless I'm just listening to
MUSIC: I like a TON of different stuff, from opera to a few heavy
metal songs. Mainly I listen to movie soundtracks - my favorite

Romer & Benh Zeitlin. I also love anything by Thomas Newman,
Danny Elfman, Harry Gregson-Williams, Alexandre Desplat, Ennio
Morricone, Marco Beltrami, and Mychael Danna.

Greene, Fall Out Boy, Imagine Dragons, Of Monsters & Men,

Queen, The Beatles, Freelance Whales, Mumford & Sons, Edward
Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, AC-DC, The Avett Brothers,

FOOD: Pretty much anything except Thai food. I can be picky, but I
can find something I like anywhere except a Thai restaurant.
