Henry David Thoreau: He wrote one of my favorite books—Walden. I've loved that book since I first read it in seventh grade. This quote was definitely gave me peace when I was 12 and felt so different than my peers (who seemed soooo immature): "If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." And one of his most quoted quotes: "If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." I love his reminder that "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation."
"Hands Down": This song by Dashboard Confessionals always make me smile.
"Hanging by a Moment" is the song that convinced me to buy the Lifehouse CD, and I've been a big fan ever since. There other songs are fantastic too, and I think most of them are about being a Christian; although I don't think they are marketed that way.
"Here I Go Again": Remember the supermodel on the hood of the car? Gotta love Whitesnake.
"Hey Jealousy" (Gin Blossoms) and "Hold On" (Wilson Phillips): I've probably listened to these songs 1000 times.
"Honey & the Moon" (Joseph Arthur): There's just something really sweet about this song; it kept me company during travels last year.
Heaven, hope, hot chocolate (with whip cream and made with milk), Hungry Hungry Hippo, He-Man ("By the power of Grey Skull, I have the power!!!"), hamburgers (from the grill with cheese and ketchup), hands, handsome men (although there are too few), hotdogs (burnt on the grill), happy hours, Harry's in a Hurry, hostels (that's how I afforded to stay in Europe an extra two weeks), the humanities
Harvard University: My family never traveled, except for work related trips for my step-father. When I was 13 he had to attend a week-long workshop at Harvard, so we FINALLY got to go somewhere besides Florida and Jekyll Island. I absolutely loved Boston and Cambridge and had my first taste of exploring a cool new place, which became a real love for travel.
Honesty: I love really honest and candid people, and I strive to be that kind of person. Today I did something really honest; and it wasn't easy but I'm glad I did it.
