i'll try not to quote 'the sound of music' too much, but these are a few of my favorite things.

...because I thought you all ought to know. Or something like that. I'm sure this is bound to be an incredibly photo heavy post, so I apologize in advance.

And, in no particular order whatsoever, here they are:

'Criminal Minds.' I had 17 episodes worth of Criminal Minds on the DVR at one point this summer. Needless to say, there's none left.

'The Vampire Diaries.'
Clearly the most attractive cast of a TV in the history of ever. It doesn't help that the two lead character's names are "Elena" and "Stefan," a name match made in heaven. I would know.

'GLEE.' I'm a drama kid, so, on one hand, I'm required to love it and watch it, yet on the other, it's just too wonderful not to love.

"A Prayer for Owen Meany," by John Irving. Read it. Finished it in the middle of class and cried. I seriously recommend it to anyone who hasn't read it. A man working in a bookstore downtown said his wife described it as "the best book she'd ever read with no discernible plot line until the very end." In other words, it's brilliant.
Anything by the German author Walter Moers. He's a genius. Seriously. Go read 'The City of Dreaming Books' or 'The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear.' It reads like J.K. Rowling, Tolkien, 'Alice in Wonderland' on crack. So it's wonderful.
Teen Vogue.

Photo is my own. Another phone picture. I swear, my phone takes better pictures than my camera.

'The Illusionist.'
'The Phantom of the Opera.'
Old Disney movies, like: 'The Lion King,' 'Beauty and the Beast,' 'The Little Mermaid,' and 'Aladdin.'
CONFESSION: I still sleep with a Lion King blanket, even though it barely covers half of me. It has Simba on it. And sometimes, when I'm really excited or depressed, I'll walk around with it over my shoulders.
All things Disneyland and Disneyworld. I'm a Disney child at heart, no way getting around it. I walked in Disneyland earlier this summer for the first time in years and just felt so ridiculously ecstatic to be there, if only for the fact that it was Disneyland. I really want to work there someday. I'll dress up as Belle. It'd so happen.
'Seasbiscuit,' by Laura Hillenbrand. Read it. Love it. It's about a horse, yes, but it's so amazing. You don't even know. I cried at the end, in the middle of my history class. Clearly, I do this far too often.
Ryan Reynolds and anything he does. Except for being married to ScarJo. I can't forgive him for that.
Photos from here and here, respectively.
The same goes for Logan Lerman.

Tumblrs and blogs about really hot guys, but this one in particular is fantastic, wonderful, and really inappropriate at times.
'WICKED.' You must see it if you haven't. It's really quite wonderful. Life-changing, really.
'RENT.' See above.
Yo-Yo Ma. The man is a cello god. But ignore the last part of the video.

'Stand By Me,' a movie based off of the Stephen King novella, "The Body."
Good grammar. Seriously. It's so underrated.
Matthew Gray Gubler. HE'S SO ADORABLE.

I took a picture of the TV because I was just so darn excited and pleased with his haircut. WHAT. A. CUTIE.

 Garage sales. Although, all too frequently, my father and I refer to them fondly, or perhaps not so much, as "crap dumps."
'Big Time Rush,' the band and the Nickelodeon TV show. Forgive me, but they're a total guilty pleasure. I mean, come on, they're adorable, they sing and dance, and in interviews, they just seem totally hilarious. I told my friend today that I want to just plunk them down on my couch and listen to them talk and joke around. Oh. And I'm going to marry Kendall Schmidt. Because he's adorable.


WHEN PEOPLE LEAVE COMMENTS. Cheesy, yeah? But seriously. I love 'em and I love reading them. So do it. Please. :D

Okay, I'm done. This was weirdly long. Sorry!
