Things I like

Published Categorised as Life in General 1 Comment on Things I like

I decided to make a list of things I like. It’s not specif­ic things, like partic­u­lar bands or direct­ors or food, it’s more a list of gener­al prin­ciples of what I enjoy. My life recently has been controlled by people who have noth­ing to offer, and who have to create drama and pain in their and other people’s lives in order to not be bored.

The world and life aren’t boring. There are 10 million inter­est­ing things you can do that don’t hurt a fly. Anyone who is worth know­ing, knows this. Actions have consequences, and anything worth doing doesn’t have negat­ive consequences on other people. They say the best revenge is living well.

* Sunlight and fresh air and nature (although I’m not sporty or partic­u­larly outdoorsy)
* Visit­ing the coun­tryside, but not living there. I need the stim­u­la­tion of a city
* The sea and other water
* Listen­ing to music. *Really* listen­ing to music, totally focused and absorbed in it
* Play­ing music myself, even if I’m too shy to show it to other people
* Watch­ing docu­ment­ar­ies
* Art and culture
* Visit­ing museums and galler­ies and histor­ic­al sites
* Meet­ing inter­est­ing people with passions and interests

* Writ­ing and receiv­ing letters and parcels
