Last update: November 28, 2014, 12:10 AM PST

In case anyone was curious, here is a list of things that make me all smiley.

I've probably forgotten a whole bunch of things in each category, but you get the picture. Characters are listed when applicable!


  • Cats
  • Corgis
  • Wombats
  • Hedgehogs
  • Dragons that are basically cats
  • Bunnies
  • Basically any mammal that is big and/or fluffy and/or has a cute belly


  • How I Met Your Mother

  • Watsky
  • Extra Arms (my ex's band that no longer exists but I still like their album a whole lot)

+ aside from those, I don't really have bands that I like anymore. But I used to be hugely obsessed with bands the way that a lot of people are hugely obsessed with TV/movie actors these days, so it seems not quite right to leave this category out. I've been listening to a lot of Spotify mixes, such as...

  • The Dirty Dancing soundtrack
  • A 200+ song late 90s/early 2000s mix that my friend made for his birthday
  • A mix of vaguely alternative songs and songs by emocore bands with flamboyant frontmen from 2001-2005
  • A hip hop mix of songs my favorite radio station in 3rd and 5th (but not 4th??) grade always played


  • LJ AU RPGs from the mid 2000s (always ♥)
  • Dungeons and Dragons
  • Mario Kart N64
  • Basically all the Zelda games
  • The Sims
  • Shockwave Daily Jigsaw
  • Bejeweled
  • Plants vs. Zombies
  • Portal (almost done! but not quite, no spoilers)
  • Basically any room escape/hidden object/puzzle game as long as it's not scary
  • A ton of games on my iPhone, like basically all the NimbleBit games
  • Doge2048 (lol)


  • Florence, Italy
  • Cinque Terre, Italy
  • San Gimignano, Italy
  • Siena, Italy (sensing a theme here?)
  • Isle of Wight, England
  • Umm basically all of England at Christmas
  • Japan, although I don't have a particular town in mind. I was there for 2 weeks in high school and spent less than 24 hours in Tokyo, and the place where I stayed the longest got destroyed in the tsunami. But I'd love to go back and actually go to Tokyo or Kyoto
  • Rockport, MA
  • Kauai, HI
  • NYC, as long as I don't have to live there
  • Santa Cruz, CA
  • Pescadero, CA
  • Royal Caribbean cruise ships (lol)


  • THIS CATEGORY IS TOO HARD umm umm. Okay. So I'm a huge foodie so I don't actually think I can fill this category in without getting hungry and sad because I can't have noms right now. But. The category is there. Just think of it as "all noms".

Famous people crushes

  • I think Jason Segel will always be my cuddly crush... haha SORRY JASON, you have been ousted by Chris Pratt for my new normalboy!crush. Yes, I know I can have more than one, but Jason Segel has gotten greasy, while Chris Pratt has gotten ripped.
  • Jude Law, holy crap <-- anyone with a smolder, basically
