Right now, I'm reading:
Infinite Jest

My favorite story of all time is:

In bed I like to read:
words of wisdom and inspiration.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
Not being able to let go. Worrying about what I cannot change.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
"Good love is on the way"

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Some Nights by Fun.
