Things I like to do

Shop at thrift stores

Take photos with my film camera

Go to church

Visit small coffee shops in different cities

Read self-help books, currently reading, “How to be a Lady.”

Buy vintage dresses

Walk through antic shops as if they were museums

Spring clean my room once a week

See movies at small indie theaters

Listen to older people’s love story.

Live in other countries for more than a year

Make tea for friends

Ride my bike

Play with my nephews

Fly my kite in different places in the world

Write in my journal

Write blogs

Text Veronica randomly

Day dream

Drive with the music loud and windows down

Give homeless people all my change just to see their smile

Record life and make it in to a video

Analogize movies and tv shows

Skype chat but not video chat

Conversations about God to anyone who is willing to add their input

Make strangers laugh

I like when people call me weird, not normal, unique, different, odd, intriguing, mysterious, and charismatic.

Write letters and send them in the mail

Listen to Explosions in the Sky, Sigur Ros, KEXP Song of the day, movie sound tracks

Hanging out in record stories

Get to work earlier than everyone else

Clean my hard drive

Listen to the Daily Audio Bible Podcast

People watch

Make cd-mixes for my music lover friends

Create sound tracks for season of my life

Color my hair

Go out to breakfast with my parents

Buy sweaters and jackets

Watching Felicity, Wonder Years, My so-Called life, Save by the Bell over and over again.

What do you like to do?

  1. Oh gosh, I could probably go back and check off half your list myself! I’m especially with ya on antique stores (I spend hours browsing them) and re-runs of cult classics from the 80’s and 90’s! My husband (who is 40) has The Wonder Years on series record on our DVR! Of course church and all things related are at the top of my list too. Study photography and learn new techniques…crochet…drink my coffee on the patio in the morning…clean the kitchen…discover new things/places…meet strangers and make small talk with them…visit the Humane Society to ooh and ahh over the animals waiting for homes…browsing the racks at Goodwill or other thrift stores…

  2. This all sounds wonderful, but alas I haven’t an artistic bone in my body, so I’m left to enjoy others’ fine work. And rather than visiting the small coffee shops, I’ve historically been the guy wasting my degree to work behind the counter. But you won’t find an adult barista that isn’t happy for doing so. Owning and operating a humble shop that provides a home for the local talent of photographers, indie film makers, and musicians? That’s more up my alley. Remind me again why I moved out of the city?

    And of my top five on-screen crushes of all time, you nailed Danica McKellar and Claire Danes. Kudos.

    At my first espresso stop, my co-worker asked if she could take home one of the mixed CDs that I burned for the shop. She said, “I’m not sure if this is a talent, but if people can be good at playlists, it’s like you know what should come next.” I missed my calling as a record producer. Thankfully, I can still inform the unknowing public that Phil Collins must be listened to after sunset, Simon and Garfunkel or Nick Drake get their turn when driving through the rain, and No Doubt’s “Tragic Kingdom” can only be played on a sunny afternoon (with the windows down). I feel that people need to know these rules.

    Two traveling things that I would like to do, but have never done: backpack across Europe in the summer, using nothing but public transportation or my own two feet, and drive across the United States coast-to-coast, without using interstate highways — both with no agenda. Apparently this kind of thing requires money. Boo.

    1. Working at a Coffee shop, that sounds interesting, although I don’t know how well I would do under the pressure of customers wanting their morning “fix”.
      My friend has this rule when he plays a really good song he warns everyone in the car to, “respect the track”. Backpacking and a trip across America sounds awesome, I think if its something you really wanna do, you should plan for it in the future. Money comes and goes..and travel is money well spent.

  3. You are tracking the good path, because you know what you like to do, and that is important for every single person in this world. I could name this as “a source of endless happiness”. I like many things too, but sometimes I feel unsure about to achieve them. I don’t know if I will be amazing by doing them, or maybe unsuccessful. I heard that fearing failure is bad, we could learn from it. The thing is that there are times that I want to start doing something I like, but I wouldn’t start. I must fight this just by making the first step.

    1. the best way to discoverer what you like is by finding out what you don’t like. When I was in high school I joined a softball team only to realize I hated sports. I was the kid in the out field looking at the clouds move. The next year I skipped try outs and hung out in the library reading. By then I was okay with myself being in the library at lunch. I had friends at school who knew I liked doing my own things sometimes. Its okay to do things that the crowd isn’t doing.
