Books: I don't read a lot, but I have loved Never Look Away by
Linwood Barclay, Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, The Crucible
by Arthur Miller, The Boxcar Children series, Frankenstein by Mary
Shelly, and currently reading this fascinating history novel for a
class, Strangers From a Different Shore by Ronald Takaki.
Movies: School of Rock, Camp Rock (guilty pleasure), Rent, Prayers
For Bobby, Milk, Paranormal Activity, Final Destination, The Fourth
Kind, and more. I'm not a very movie-watching person, I haven't
seen most popular films or even go to the movies often but I
generally love romance, comedy, horror, and films/documentaries
exploring dark themes and social issues.
TV Shows: The Fosters, Switched at Birth, The Mindy Project, Orange
Is The New Black, Catfish, Looking, Underemployed, American Idol,
The Voice, X-Factor, and more. So either music television or shows
with complex narratives.
Music: I like to say my music taste goes from Britney Spears to
Metallica. I listened to a lot of hard rock and post-hardcore music
in high school, but I've progressed to listening to a lot of soul
and pop music. I love the big soul divas, indie pop artists, some
mainstream stuff, and others.
Food: I'm like super simple when it comes to food. I like food from
all cultures (although I've mostly been exposed to Americanized
versions of these foods).
