This is a list of things that I enjoy


Music (Back to top)
I really enjoy music, as a matter of fact, it's my favorite thing to listen to. These are some of the musical acts I enjoy.
Blink-182
Blink-182
   Blink-182 is my all-time favorite band. Their music has has such a huge impact on me, and has literally changed my life. I just find them to be relatable, entertaining, funny, and just overall great.
Death Cab for Cutie
Death Cab for Cutie
   Death Cab for Cutie is another great band. In contrast to the previously mentioned group, Death Cab's music is more slowly pased, and is really good music to just think to. Good stuff.
Motion City Soundtrack
Motion City Soundtrack
   Motion City Soundtrack is somewhat similar to Blink-182, as they were in part inspired by Blink. Their music is just good fun listening, and they use a synthesizer!
MGMT
MGMT
   Electric music is definitely an acquired taste, and with the added eccentricity that MGMT brings, I can completely understand why people may not like them. But I, however, love music of the electric variety, and MGMT is one of my frontrunners for favorite groups.
Mumford and Sons
Mumford and Sons
   Mumford and Sons is vry folky, and is not a band I would have expected myslef to enjoy quite as much as I do. I love just how different their music is from most other music today, and they also dress like they're from the late 1800's, which I think is pretty neat.
Of course, I love many other bands than just these five, so this is an Honorable Mentions list:
The Shins, Phoenix, Foster the People, Dashboard Confessional, Manchester Orchestra, Angels and Airwaves, Cage the Elephant, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fall Out Boy, Coldplay, Taking Back Sunday, 30 Seconds to Mars, Breaking Benjamin, Jimmy Eat World, Collective Soul, Cartel, and so many others that I just don't have adequate room for...
Films (Back to top)
I also really enjoy watching movies. Now, I don't think I have a favorite movie, but I definitely have two, or truly three, favorite directors, being Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers. They both, or all, just make ridiculous, yet very fun and entertaining movies. But of course, there are some movies that just immediately stand out to me as great.
Inception
Inception
   Christopher Nolan's Inception is an overall amazing piece of cinema. Now, I know i just said that I don't think I have a favorite movie, but I'm pretty sure Inception is as close as one will come
Inglourious Basterds
Inglourious Basterds
   Tarantion's Inglourious Basterds is also just a great movie, with possibly the best acting job I've ever seen by any human, comeing from Christoph Waltz. Tarantino just makes this movie as great as it can be, with drama, action, humor, and other good things
Fight Club
Fight Club
   David Fincher's is such an underrated movie. It's just such great fun to watch this movie, plus it's entertainingly violent. Huzzah!
As before, there are many other movies I greatly enjoy, but I don't want to overcrowd this page. Too bad...
Books (Back to top)
I do so enjoy reading a good book, and I definitely have some favorites.
His Dark Materials
His Dark Materials
   Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy is my personal favorite series of books, ever. These three books just inspired me so much, and I have read them through many, many times, and surely will again. Sadly, the movie was incredibly disappointing, but that shouldn't come as any surprise...
Lord of the Rings
Lord of the Rings
   J.R.R Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series, including The Hobbit, is just such classic work. This is one of the few books that I can without hesittion say that he movies were good. But not better than the books.
Narnia
Narnia
   C.S. Lewis's Narnia series, much like his friend J.R.R. Tolkien's LOTR is an amazing, and classical work. Unfortunately, I can't say the movies were that awesome, not bad, just not awesome...
A Long Way Gone
A Long Way Gone
   A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah is an amazing true story of the author as a child, who was forced to be a child soldier. It's a sad book, but an absolutely amazing, one, too.
And most definitely, I've read many other great books, but these, these are my favorite!
Television Shows (Back to top)
Sometimes, I like to just sit and watch TV. Luckily, I enjoy some of what I watch.
Dexter
Dexter
   Dexter is about a man, Dexter, who works in a crime lab, in order to catch murderers. Whenever a murderer slips through the system, Dexter sadistically kills them, chops them up, and throws them in the ocean. Fur for everone!
SVU
Law & Order: SVU
   Law & Order:SVU is about cops in New York City who solve crimes, and catch rapists. Also fun!
NCIS
NCIS
   NCIS is about special agents who catch murderers and terrorists, although usually in a more lighthearted way than the aforementioned shows.
How I Met Your Mother
How I Met Your Mother
   How I Met Your Mother is a hilarious show about this guy who is telling his kids the story of how he met their mother. Although, instead of meeting their mother, his stories have just been various misadventures of he and his friends. Legitimate fun.
And, as usual, I watch many other shows, too, but they just didn't make the cut!
Activities! (Back to top)
I like to do other things, too!
Listening to music
Listening to Music
   In case I haven't yet made this clear, I love listening to music. I do it a lot, and so I have headphones, which are sometimes draped around my neck for easy access.
Track Team
Running
  I love to run. Unfortunately, I have no picture of myslef running, so instead, I;m using a picture of my highschool track team. How I do miss track...
Standing next to wood
Standing next to wood
   It really is fun. You need to try it.
Hanging out
Hanging out with my friends
   Pretty self explanatory. I love my friends, and I love hanging out with them.
And there are many, many other things I enjoy doing, that could fit under the aforementioned category, but I don't know exactly how to categorize them.
