I met my boyfriend on OkCupid, so you could say I'm a fan.
I love being outside, drinking beer and whiskey and wine and champagne, smoking weed, having existential conversations, hugs, and everything in between!
I enjoy anything from Fantasy to Memoir, Victorian to Contemporary novels/novellas. The only genre I am vehemently opposed to is Romance. I have been really digging literary nonfiction short stories lately. I have a couple awesome anthologies so if you'd like a recommendation, I could most definitely provide multiple handfuls. Also poetry, yes yes yes. The list of books could go on forever and is always expanding and shifting. However, some of my favorites are:
The Elegance of the Hedgehog, Freedom, Bluebeard, Cat's Cradle, Dandelion Wine, Paper Towns, Shadow of the Wind, Wuthering Heights, All Harry Potter books (the third is my favorite), Hunger Games, Girl with Curious Hair, Bell Jar, The Awakening, A Room of One's Own, Great Gatsby.
Put on any slow-moving, boring, and abstract film and I'm yours to keep. But really. I like long movies that make me want to kill myself. What else is cinema for but to urge you to contemplate every aspect of your life and soul and then urge you towards suicide? I also like mind-numbing, witty, and/or embarrassingly cheesy movies because sometimes I don't feel like spiraling into a fit of depression. Here are some films I'm particularly keen on:
The Place Beyond the Pines, Garden State, Girl Interrupted, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Hours, Bourne Series, Titanic (Leo unf), Harry Potter, Safety Not Guaranteed, Cruel Intentions, The Royal Tenenbaums, Lovelace, Like Crazy, almost any documentary.
*Side note* I think I have watched Definitely Maybe ~50 times in the past three years so you know we should watch it sometime.

I have really low standards for the television I love to watch. And by low, I mean I have no standards for the television I love to watch. No shame:
Grey's Anatomy, Skins (UK), Parks and Rec, Gossip Girl, The Mindy Project, Scandal, How I Met Your Mother, Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Bob's Burgers, Scrubs, Broad City, everything on Food Network.

When the next time I can sleep is
Or out dancing.
Or charming your pretty little face.
