writing, obviously. music, particularly playing my guitar: acoustic for folk and electric for punk, my two favorites; sometimes switching them just for kicks.
hiking, biking, climbing... anything that gets me away from my concrete jungle and out where i can breathe... and think. but when i don't want to think, they also offer a good excuse not to.
i love animals, they're so much more honest than people. if they love you, they love you unconditionally, and if they don't, they make it clear that they don't.
experiencing life, in all its agony and ecstacy, pleasure and pain. it is, after all, the only thing we really have, and when we lose it, we lose everything. no matter what it throws at you, celebrate that you're here to catch it.
