- The Japan Times. Thank goodness for the internet, as well. Without these two things, I'd have no idea what's going on in my favorite country. And what kind of International Relations student would I be then?
- Quoting people. You can really capture the essence of somebody by quoting them at their strangest. Take, for example, Jess's quote from HON 240 today: (quietly) "Is that a penis?"
- Muslims. They get so much stereotypical criticism, especially from the West. They get props from me for putting up with all of it.
- The deli-sandwiches at Cooper's Coffee Shop. Most would say they're disgusting, but I happen to have a thing for semi-gross deli-sandwiches. I ate at least one a day in Japan.
- Films older than the 1980s. I'll watch almost anything made between the 1920s and the 1970s.
- Pokemon. Back in 5th grade, when the craze grabbed hold of me, I remember my mom saying someday, I wouldn't care about Pokemon anymore. She was wrong. They are damn cute, and the games are often way under-appreciated.
- LiveJournal icons. I often save them to my computer, with, of course, no idea what I plan on doing with them.
- My parents. Although, as a now relatively independent person, I can only stand being back in my hometown for a week or so, I've never appreciated my parents as much as I do now. I wouldn't be able to go to Augsburg without their help. And most importantly, I had a nearly seamless transition to college, because they knew to let me figure things out for myself early on in life. They were definitely not helicopter parents.
