things that are emotionally stirring.

things i like.
I like books, music, and movies that make you think. I like stories that make me cry and laugh. I like songs that send chills up and down my arms. I like having my breath taken away by a great piece of art. I like music that I can put on repeat for hours, days, and even longer, and still not get tired of. I like movies that have amazing soundtracks, because the music just makes it that much more beautiful. I like things that are emotionally stirring, which can be a hard thing to like. I like being astounded by a beautiful shot in a movie. I like books that have me unconsciously turning pages, until I reach "THE END". I like the feeling of singing my heart out along to some amazing music, or playing piano until my fingers are sore. I like adventures. I like feeling like I'm on a wonderful journey, climbing mountains and sailing seas and saving the things that I love. All through stories.

I like art that teaches me things.
