Maybe this would go better if I just gave some bulleted examples:
I have been living on the South Side of Chicago for the past 6 years and loving it. (Yes, this is where 98% of the population is made up of people whose ethnic background is different than my own and people get shot by the 30s over a weekend.)
I cried 5 times in the movie Babe. Those little pigs!!!
I rode my bike and solo-camped across Switzerland a few years ago. Amazing.
I recently changed my own flat when my car tire blew.
I see the sun rise, by choice, most days of the week.
Music (this could go long): Yeasayer, Bon Iver, Magnolia Electric Co., Explosions in the Sky, Broken Social Scene, Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, Damien Jurado, Swan Lake, Destroyer, The National, Richard Buckner, Townes Van Zandt, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, James Taylor, The Tallest Man on Earth, Wilco, The Clash, The Kinks, Sam Cooke, and lots more...
Midnight in Paris, one of Woody Allen's best; Wes Anderson's collection, anything silly with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson
The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Parks and Recreation
Food? Lots of it. Hippie food. Fruits and vegetables. Pints of almond-milk ice cream. Peanut butter.
2. Yeah, pretty much just coffee.
