What I Like

Favorite Books

I’m currently deeply entrenched in the third book of the Dragon Tattoo series and LOVING it (moreover, loving Lisbeth) but prior to that, I read Bossypants which made me laugh a lot. Native Son and Invisible Man both made me cry in a good way, I love Sense and Sensibility, and anything- ANYTHING- by Toni Morrison.

Favorite Movies

Fight Club, the Swedish versions of the Millenium series, But I’m A Cheerleader, Love Actually, Benny and Joon, Edward Scissorhands… I don’t really have the attention span for many movies to be honest.

Favorite Documentaries

RIZE. everyone should see it. it is awesome. it makes me wish I had any sense of rhythm so that I could dance.

Favorite TV Shows

Parks and Rec, Downton Abbey, Six Feet Under, The L Word, The REAL L word (obviously). I started watching Girls, which is good, and I also keep watching the New Girl because I have an unhealthy love for Zooey Deschanel

Favorite Music

OH I’m so bad at this question. I like everything. Specifically Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Tegan and Sara, Best Coast, blah blah blah. I also LOVE Drake, Justin Timberlake, and Robyn. Pretty much anything I can dance to, as well.

Favorite Sandwich
