My Most Favorites

So, when I'm not sitting in front of my computer crying over the paper I have to write or spending yet another sad weekend in the depths of the main stacks, I do enjoy having some down time and doing what I love most..which includes:

1. Eating. Food always seems to be number one in my life. I can't say that I have a favorite place to eat because there are so many great places around Berkeley. I love the restaurants down College Avenue. La Mediterranee is a really nice place to have lunch on a sunny afternoon. And further down College is an adorable chocolate cafe called Bittersweet. They have great hot cocoa and a lot of exotic chocolates too.

2. Watching movies. I love watching movies, whether it's going out to the theatre or watching it at home with a bunch of friends. I really like indie films. Some of my favorites are Garden State, Amelie, and Little Miss Sunshine. But once in a while I go for the chick flicks too. I can watch Love Actually over and over again. And I love this movie called Sabrina Goes to Rome, based on the TV series Sabrina. It's really embarrassing to tell people but it's one of my favorite movies.

3. Listening to some good music. Deep down I'm a mellow person, so I love mellow music. My favorite artists include Jack Johnson, Copeland, Bright Eyes, and Death Cab. They're perfect to listen to when you're just laying on your bed, looking out the window at the trees and blue sky and daydreaming.

4. Watching TV. I actually rarely ever find time to watch TV when I'm in school, but I do have a few favorite TV shows. I love The Office. I like the American version, but in my mind there's no competing with the original British version. I also love Arrested Development, but sadly, it's cancelled. And Simpsons and Conan are great too.
