5. Sabra chipotle hummus. I am living proof you can be 23 with no major medical problems and exist off of the dream diet of a six year old. Cookies for dinner?! Sure. Ice cream for breakfast? Why not?! Pizza three times a week?! Heck yeah! Chipotle hummus sort of ruins that, though. It's great for those of us who cannot cook. I can be trusted to open a container of hummus and a bag of tortilla chips and devour the contents of both whilst laughing until I cry at Jon Stewart.
4. Reading Chekhov on the Metro. I look so ridiculosly stupid in my sundress reading translated Russian plays and chewing on my braid. However, I get motion sick pretty easily while reading except when underground, so I'm grateful for any time I am able to spend in transit with words.
3. The first Hunger Games book. I admit it. I read them all like the love-crazed teenager I am constantly mistaken for in like two days. And they are awful. And I'm so Team Peeta.
2. My friends being super successful. Tjaden just got cast in a musical in 'Bama after slaughtering her senior recital (not to mention meeting the love of her life), and Ev, Laur, and Katie ALL got hired by Fairfax County Public Schools in the past few weeks as music teachers! Sarah was cast as Cinderella in Cenerentola (Italian for Cinderella) in a summer production after completing Year One of her Masters Degree at UMich, Shan is in rehearsals for Hairspray as Tracy at the top community theatre in the area, and Steph never ceases to amaze me with the things she is GIVEN at her work (like snacks and Cirque tickets), where she makes loads of money. Oh, she got a nice fat scholarship to law school too.
1. Harry Potter and the Deathy Hallows Part 2. My ticket was $4.50. Pottermore was such a letdown though. Ms Rowling really disappointed us there.
