We may have out-grown (well, some of us) may have out-grown running around asking, “What’s your favorite color?” like Buddy the Elf. However, favorite things can be a fun way to get to know someone. There’s few things better than realizing you and a stranger have a fandom in common, and the resulting forty-minute geek-out session.
So, in no particular order, here are some things I love. (Note, not books, that’s another post)
The Clash. If you’ve known me for five minutes, you know this about me. I love their range of work, the complicated four personalities that boiled down into one volatile band, their songs emotional impact.
Florence + The Machine. Powerful vocals, amazing imagery in songs, plus I totally rocked her blunt bang haircut for most of college
The Avett Brothers. Perfect mood music for a chill weekend morning.
Pittsburgh. The Steel City. The City That Thinks It’s a Small Town. A friendly, always interesting, unique city that I’m proud to call home.
Western New York. My hometown area. Rochester, Buffalo… beef on wecks and skiing at Holiday Valley. I miss those places a lot
New York City. My favorite place to visit.
Alaska, specifically Skagway. The prettiest place I’ve ever been
Many, many more places I dream of visiting soon.
Once Upon A Time: The show I just can’t quit, because it’s just too full of good actors! Even when the plot makes zero sense, I always come back to it
Vampire Diaries: Although my heart shall never recover from the Klaroline that never was
Buffy, Sherlock and Doctor Who. ‘Nuff said about these. They’re awesome. As you probably know.
