I'm a painter, and having something that I sit down to practice at every day, all day, and love despite how heart-wrenchingly painful it can be at times is the most important thing to me. Do something you care about, or at the very least care about whatever it is you're doing.
Certain areas of trivia
I like Adventure Time way more than I ought to, and I'm pretty into British television. Miyazaki movies are medicinal. Kurosawa is a feast. Wes Anderson is lovely, and the Cohen brothers brilliant. Terry Gilliam at his best is always a treat, and if you can show me something new I'll always remember that.
Music: Joanna Newsom, Sufjan Stevens, Florence and the Machine, Bat for Lashes, Glitch Mob, NMH, Frightened Rabbit, George Winston, Stan Rogers, Cranberries, Bowerbirds, Fever Ray, The Knife, Wovenhand, Black Sabbath, Tori Amos, Bjork, Railroad Earth, Kate Bush, The Antlers, Future Islands. Some good old Blues. Mozart, Bach, and some truly ancient stuff only dead people should want to listen to. If you have more, I'm listening.
Food: I'll eat pretty much anything, but some good Japanese food is always a safe bet. Or tacos. And Southern cooking. It's a vice.
Warm beds on cold nights
Cold drinks on warm nights
People who are smarter than I am
Sharing a word with a friend
A healthy sense of curiosity
You can speak with cats
You're into being into things
