I like to always be learning and getting better at something, which kinda ties in to my always being involved in something creative, if even just as a hobby, (for most of my life it's been art, lately poetry, but it changes regularly) and my reading a lot.
Creating Back-stories for strangers
Remembering quotes and facts
Quick sarcastic retorts
Making chocolate chip banana pancakes
