Also, farmer's markets. You can't beat being surrounded by delicious vegetables.
....eventually I plan to get my PhD, but one step a time, just waiting to see what's next. December is going to be ridiculous and there will be a LOT of whiskey involved, if you want to share ;)
Being inquisitive and listening - I'd rather hear YOU tell me your life story
Empathy - genuinely, really caring about other people
Making mix tapes, and cheering friends up on a bad day, and drinking wine :)
Does... completing jigsaw puzzles count? Hah.
Maybe my hair? It has a mind of its own.
Here, there, and everywhere music!
STEVIE NICKS, omg, my spirit animal. I swear she'd be my patronus if I wasn't a muggle.
And...Cyndi Lauper, The Black Keys, Feist, Fleetwood Mac, Mates of State, Roxette, Rilo Kiley, JENNY LEWIS, She & Him, The Sounds, The Kills, Tilly and the Wall...what is not to love about tap dance as percussive backup??
BEYONCÉ, Beyoncé, and, oh yes, Beyoncé. The Queen.
As for books...I love to read. I wish I had more time read, but currently in a time consuming relationship with grad school and ALL the scientific, scholarly public health literature. But some other favorites...
White Oleander, Mountains Beyond Mountains, The Help, A Case of Need, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Paint it Black, The Hunger Games, The Glass Castle, Catcher in the Rye, Call of the Wild...and so many more.
And I have to admit, I'm a fan of The X-files.
I also like watching Dexter and Parks and Recreation...Leslie Knope is my absolute hero.
Political news junkie, I love CNN and Politico. Anderson Cooper, you're amazing.
...and my cat, Dexter. He's a hoot and a half.
And, when is too soon for my next cup of coffee??
HAHA just kidding, that's what I wish I was doing. More realistically, in a coffee shop or at home somewhere writing my thesis.
