Music, Movies & Books

Music: the sappier the better. Also, the complete opposite, music that makes me want to dance and feel like it's friday on my commute to school!
My favorite books to read are Russian classics, but I do like American bestsellers as well.
I love movies, especially Amelie. Current fave TV series are Scandal and Revenge - check them out!
