Books are super important in my life, mostly fantasy and fiction (H2G2, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and anything by Neil Gaiman are just a very few that come to mind.) I love indie/folk music (Dar Williams, Ingrid Michaelson, Girlyman), and also Broadway. Love theatre in general. I became obsessed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer in high school, and the situation has only slightly improved since then. Quirky shows, like Community, Dead Like Me, My So-Called Life, are pretty sweet. Movies? How about Being John Malkovich, American Beauty, Garden State, and Chance. Strange ones that feed my brain thoughts I might not have otherwise. Oh, and I was vegetarian for four years, but when I moved to Seattle I couldn't help but start indulging in sushi again.

4. Hope in the universe's tendency to bring people where they need to be in their lives
Not necessarily in that order
