I have always struggled with “favorites”. Maybe it’s because I’m indecisive, but I have always found it difficult (often impossible) to answer any question containing the word “favorite”. Anything requiring me to narrow down the sum of my experiences, preferences, and passions to one single thing for any given category is just beyond my ability! I thought I’d tackle some favorites and basic facts about myself in groups of fours - makes it easier for me not to have to narrow things down to one ultimate favorite. Even with fours, my indecisive brain had a difficult time deciding. This list is by no means complete and absolute…
