What are some good things you’ve read?

My favorite book is Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer about a boy’s search through New York for clues about a key he finds that belonged to his father. I’m not sure if it’s still cool to like this book since there is now a movie, but I think it is gripping, interesting and overall great. I couldn’t put it down. 10/10, would suggest.

You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train by Howard Zinn. It highlights overlooked parts of history, war, civil rights and more. It inspired me to get involved with my world. Sometimes you need to be radical to inspire change, and this book helps to reinforce that ideal. Howard Zinn was a remarkable person and all of his books are worth reading.

Letters of Note is a blog that gathers intriguing letters, postcards and other correspondence from interesting people throughout history. A new letter is showcased daily, and I can get lost on this site for hours just looking through the archive. The letters are like a look into the private lives of others, which, let’s be honest, is usually enjoyable.

What are some good things you’ve watched?

Nyan Cat! There’s something this super simple, cute, catch video that sucks me in. It never gets annoying to me, which no one in my office appreciates. 

Corgi Rae Jepson- Call Me Maybe A corgi music video to one of the catchiest pop songs ever–it doesn’t get much better than that. Is it obvious that I really enjoy silly viral videos?

Arrested Development has to be one of the best sitcoms of all time. I can watch it over and over and still laugh at the quirkiness of it all. I pick up on so many little hilarious details every time I see it. There’s always money in the banana stand.

What are some good things you use?

Brace yourselves. The shameless plug is coming. Imgur, of course! Not only is it incredibly entertaining and provides hours of laughs, it’s a great service to the Internet. I’m really proud to work with Imgur, and I love my job. Check it out! 

My Yamaha Vino 125 scooter. Living in a city, I truly believe that a scooter is the best way to get around. I can park anywhere, I can bypass all of the traffic and my gas costs $3 per week. I even have a dog carrier that I wear as a backpack so I can take my pooch with me. It doesn’t get much more awesome than that!

Post-It Notes. I have Post-Its plastered all over my desk with various links to GIFs for all moods. I pretty much have a GIF response for every situation I may encounter. So maybe it’s actually GIFs that I use, rather than Post-Its. My answer is a two-in-one. GIFs and Post-Its.
