Favorite Things

Hi guys, it's Leo here. Today, New Year's Eve, the last day of the decade, is a very special day for me. It's my first Cbversary. It marks one year since I first posted. I haven't been as active as I would have hoped but I think one of my New Year's resolutions is to try and post more on here. It feels so wierd that it's gonna be 2020 tomorrow. Can anyone believe it? Anyway, my very first post was a thread about your favorite things. It's been a year, we've all changed, new people have joined and I think it will be a nice full circle moment. So, post your favorite things.

My favorite things are tea, warm sweaters, snow days, Pokemon, graphic novels, walking on the beach, hot showers, cats, daydreaming, reading, writing drawing, sneakers, sports, the CB, laughing, Haribo gummi twin snakes, gummi peach rings, our Christmas tree, camp, watching the sunrise/sunset, and food. 

It's kind of hard to think of your favorite things. I feel like I'm missing some but these are all that I can think of right now. I just want to thank everyone (including the Admins, what are your guys favorite things?) for making the CB such a great place. You all are cool, amazing, beautiful human beings. I hope you have a great 2020 (feels wierd saying that)! I am looking forward to a hopefully more active year. 

And submit! (Anyone else know the struggle of typing up a really long thread, then your internet turns on you and you have to type it again? That's what happened to me, agh!) 


I'll just list a few of my favorite things, because there are a lot of comments waiting to be posted: hiking, mountains, lakes, beautiful music (almost all kinds but especially Dvorak, Gershiwn, Tchaikovsky, Copland), cappuccino gelato, dark chocolate, fresh peaches, apples, snow, cross-country skiing, a really good story (book or movie), Chatterbox, and my very favorite book ever: Remembrance Rock by Carl Sandburg.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things...

My favorite things are (there are a lot of them) reading, soup, hot chocolate, regular chocolate, writing, drawing, nature, friends, hoodies, D&D, music (most music -- some music I just find it hard to like), jokes, riddles, and interesting scientific facts.

Happy CBversary, Leo!

Oooh yay, I love these threads!!

Mint tea, marshmallows, cute dog pictures, The Mandalorian, watching old movies/tv shows of our childhood with my siblings, watching Cardinals games in St. Louis, making fun of bad movies, my tall brown boots, the smell of a live Christmas tree, walking by Bath & Body Works in the mall and just inhaling, these super cozy jeans, breaks from school when somedays you just stay in pajamas all day, opening the stiff pages of a new book, watching the sun rise/set, writing poems and also being satisfied with them, Bear's Den & Indigo Girls, the last day of school, going on vacation, eating candy that I stashed away after holidays, that satisfaction after you've organized something, flannel shirts, not being tired (what?? That's possible??), warm blankets, fireplaces, going out to eat, eating ice cream directly from the tub, the sound when you open a soda can, driving home from someplace later at night and staring at the stars and thinking poetic thoughts, Marvel movies, comic books, discussing books with other people, making my friends laugh, being in/watching band or chorus concerts, listening to Hamilton & DEH soundtracks,... I should probably stop now. XD
