You can usually tell a lot about a person by what they get excited about. Not, “Oh yeah haha that’s pretty cool” excited - I’m talking wild eyed, foaming at the mouth, “OMIGOD YASSSS” excited.

So without further ado, here’s a short list of things that I (figuratively, and occasionally literally) foam at the mouth over.

Rewatchable TV shows. The ones that immediately come to mind are Game of Thrones, Rick and Morty, and Pushing Daisies (I seriously watched Rick and Morty Season 3 Episode 6 something like five times within two hours of its release, like this is not a joke)

Rock music, movie/game soundtrack, and this Japanese band called B’z. My music aesthetic is best described as Sounds weirdly specific but ok

A LOT of anime. For somebody who claims to not be a weaboo, I watch an embarrassing amount of this stuff

Code that compiles on the first try. AKA a blessing from the coding gods

Eight hours of sleep. Or more, preferably

FINAL FANTASY 7. I may or may not have written two of my MIT essays/one of my essays on the application for these blogs/literally my entire Common App essay on this game. Why? I’m still trying to figure that one out

Japanese language (and food). Once upon a time I learned Japanese solely for the purpose of playing the aforementioned video game. This eventually led to some cool study abroad adventures in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Dogs and cats. This should be self-explanatory

Fall in New Hampshire. a. I'm weirdly passionate about raking my yard and b. I like everything pumpkin flavored
