I listen to music a lot. I always try to be open with new tunes, but I'm a bit of a music snob.
I'm close with my family. I live with my dad and sister, and my brother is here a lot. I see my extended family a lot. I'm lucky to have them, and genuinely like them, it's never family obligation with me.
I tend to watch more tv than movies, but I like both. I just find that I sometimes have a problem sitting still watching the screen for two hours. I would much rather watch tv, where it's over in a hour and there are commercials. I'm also a bit of a movie snob too. I'm picky, and truly enjoying a movie with someone else is hard for me because we don't have the same taste in movies. I'm much more flexible with tv.
A few years ago I picked up a book called 'Twilight' and became obsessed. I was never really a reader growing up. My mom always said to me that when you find the right book for you, you'll always have a book in your hand. I found that to be true, and Twilight was my first and that's why it will always be my favorite. I like to read teeny bopper love stories, paranormal love stories, and dystopian love stories. In case it's not obvious, I'm a hopeless romantic, all you need is love. I read young adult 90% of the time.
The most useful thing I learned in high school was multi-tasking. I can watch tv, read, go online, and have a conversation at the same time. I prefer to watch tv and read during commercials, but stuff happens, people stop by, the phone rings; so I can keep my mind in multiple places.
I've learned to always say yes to any invitation that might come along. Even if you aren't sure you want to go and even if you don't have a good time. You might be a part of something that is great, you wouldn't be doing anything anyway, and you might regret not going. My grandma taught me this through example, she says yes to everything and she has the busiest social life of anyone I've ever known. I've also learned that you can't just sit around and wait for an invitation. If you want to do something, you have to put it out there.
