These are a few of my favorite things

As promised, in order to counteract my list of things that I hate, I have now included a list of things that I love. There is no rhyme or reason to these, but it's kind of fun to just think about the little things that make you happy every once in a while.

1. Brown sugar Pop-Tarts: I have tried every single flavor of Pop Tarts in my tenure at the Scroll office (they're cheap and readily available from the vending machine when you don't have the energy to keep cranking out stories and pages) and I have pretty much decided that the brown sugar kind is the best. Cherry with sprinkles tastes like pure gritty sugar, and let's be honest: does anyone really like blueberry?

2. Black and white photography: I just love how everything looks old-fashioned and classic in black and white, even if the picture was just taken yesterday. The feelings of heritage these photos evoke are priceless.

3. You've Got Mail: It's not the most exciting movie I've ever seen, but I love it because two people fall in love through the words they write to each other, phrases like "bouquets of freshly-sharpened pencils." For me, a love story can't get more romantic than that.

All for now!
