    Ok, so I can't think of a favorite so I'm going with what movie, if on, I can't not watch and that would be Independence Day

    2. What is your favorite TV show?
    Favorite ended: Firefly
    Favorite still on: Supernatural

    That was hard

    3. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

    Australia!

    4. What is a quote you live by or a quote that you like?

    I never remember quotes so I never know how to answer this type. But one that always stuck out to me was "Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company." - Mark Twain

    5. What is your favorite singer/band?

    This is incredibly hard for me too so I'm going with Mika for my favorite that is still producing music and The Band for my all around favorite.

    1. What is your favorite movie?
    Animated, The Lion King.
    Non-animated... I think You've Got Mail. Or maybe Legally Blonde.

    2. What is your favorite TV show?
    If my recent behavior is any indication, apparently it's Friends.

    WHAT is your quest? Oh wait no that's not in here.

    3. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
    Hawaii. There are more exotic places I'd like to go like Australia or New Zealand and places in Africa too, but really, I want to go to Hawaii pretty much more than anything.

    4. What is a quote you live by or a quote that you like?
    "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

    5. What is your favorite singer/band?
    I give the old answer - Jars of Clay. Whenever I get the chance to see them live, it reminds me just why I always say they are my fave. But NKOTB is pretty up there too.

    Oooh I've never even heard of that (my movie education is pretty lacking). What's it about?

    My shocked face, let me show you it. :p I stole your formatting though, I have SO MANY favorite TV shows because of Netflix.

    10 Things I Hate About You is such an amazing movie. I get so sad when I watch it now because Heath Ledger is gone. :( But young Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Love him.

    Also 90s alternative? *fist bump* My favorite Pandora station.

    WHAT is your favorite color??

    Chaz trip to Hawaii! That would be kind of awesome.

    Oh god... I have no idea. Maybe Beauty and the Beast? I love a lot of the Disney and Pixar films.

    2. What is your favorite TV show?

    Current? Probably Game of Thrones (yeah that's.... not so Disney) It's the only show I watch weekly when it comes out. Everything else is Netflix or prime.

    Australia and New Zealand!

    If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all <--- well I try. I fail some but I try.

    I don't really have one. I love a lot of rock and alt. That's probably my favorite genre. I also like some lighter more pop-y songs too.

    4. What is a quote you live by or a quote that you like?

    "The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.

    For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you".
    Neil deGrasse Tyson


    5. What is your favorite singer/band?
    Ed Sheeran
