Books: I fell in love with Tess of the D'Urbervilles and The Great
Gatsby after reading them in school. But with school occupying my
reading time these days, I don't have much time for reading except
for some literary junk food thrillers. Right now I'm rotating
between several series: James Bond, Lord of the Rings, The Girl
with the Dragon Tattoo books, Game of Thrones series, the Jack
Reacher books, and the Harry Potter series.
Movies: I love old movies, and by that I mean stuff made before
1960. I like mysteries (Laura), screwball comedies (Bringing Up
Baby), and some of the interesting stuff that falls in-between (The
Thin Man). One of my all-time favorites is Cinema Paradiso, an
excellent, romantic movie. That and Rob Reiner's Sleepless in
Seattle and When Harry Met Sally. I'm also a huge James Bond nerd.
And I love the cult classics Clue and Rocky Horror Picture
Shows: I don't watch that much TV anymore, but I've been watching
old episodes of SNL (70s/80s) on Hulu as well as Community. But the
classic go-to is Friends. I have been getting into some shows on
YouTube channels too. But my favorite show is I Love Lucy, whenever
I visit my parents, my mom and I will watch Lucy in the morning and
race to guess which episode is playing based on the opening...we've
seen every episode so many times, our game never lasts more than a
Music: I'm pretty open in terms of my taste in music. Anything that
makes a good karaoke song is good for me. But at any given time I
have an obsession song, which I will happily listen to 100 times on
repeat until I find the next song.
Food: I was a picky eater as a kid, and now I'm making up for lost
time by trying just about everything that's out there, including
liver and onions. But my comfort food favorites are Caribbean/Cuban
and Chinese takeout.
