Favourite Things Project

Jennifer’s Favourite Things….

I love cycling down a long steep hill. Wind rushing the tears past my cheeks like a little stream. Cycling downhill is almost meditative. There’s nothing else to think about or do except ride the bike and smile. The hard work of the hill and the reward of the descent.

The idea of traveling under my own steam… that my own body got me there.

Reading and feeling inspired by quotes.

The countryside.

I like photographing people candidly… and capturing those moments that would otherwise go un-noticed.

Feeling a warm embrace and hugging someone and you just fit together, that’s a nice feeling. To feel safe.

Poetry, I’d like to read more of it.

Radio drama and audio books, listening to them makes me feel old beyond my years but I love them. Especially Agatha Raisin mysteries by MC Beaton.

The sound of walking on gravel.

New cultures and languages I feel so alive when travelling.

Long bike rides as you feel you have accomplished something great.

Piano music.

The cinema – to get lost in a new world and feel differently about things when you walk out of the cinema.

Meeting people and good conversation. I like picking up bits of information,life advice, experiences here and there. I also love a bit of philosophical conversation.

Hearing the rain when I am indoors.

Traveling on trains especially at night with fitting music in my ears.

Adventures.

Creating, whether it’s baking, cooking something colourful and trying out new recipes, taking pictures even if just with a phone. A capture is a capture.

The kindness of strangers. Simple things, like a smile or a thank you.

Riding in the cool evening at dusk when everything looks pink, the light is pink.

Animals.

Saskia’s favourite things

I am writing this because a toilet door told me to. Hope this is worth the effort. I’d love a reply if you can.

I am a film student so basically my main passion is film, my favourite directors are Danny Boyle, he is my absolute hero and the person I aspire to be. Followed by Stanley Kubrick and the Quentin Tarentino. Others I love are Ken Loach and John Landis. My favourite films are rather dark but they’re Trainspotting, A Clockwork Orange, Control (Biopic of the life of Ian Curtis), Pulp Fiction, This Is England. I could go on because my DVD collection takes up half a wall. But yeah, favourite actors are Heath Ledger, Sam Riley, Gary Oldman, The amazing Malcolm McDowell and the beautiful Ewan McGregor, Actresses are Uma Thurman, Audrey Tatou and Audrey AND Katharine Hepburn (My middle name is Katharine after her, so its kind of good I’m a fan).
Musicwise I LOVE The Smiths, before 500 Days Of Summer. I saw Morrissey last summer in his big Manchester show and it was one of the best day of my life so far. I also love Oasis, Pulp, Joy Division,  Girls Names, The Beatles, Nirvana AND Hole (despite the fanwar, but I hate Blur so ho-hum.) Blondie, Alabama Shakes, Janis Joplin, Deap Vally, Haim, Peace, The Jam, Stone Rose and Jake Bugg. I like more but that would be reciting my iPod which is boring.
I live in Manchester and do far to much to have a proper job, but I create original designs that I’m hoping to put onto canvas bags and sell to the Northern Quarter shops. I an currently assistant producer to a public service broadcast- unpaid but its my first professional thing so I am rather excited. :) I also manage an indie folk band named The Absolute Zeros, I wrote them a few songs and they sound pretty good if I do say so myself. I am also working at a theatre being an usher and selling ice cream -_- But I do have an audition to be a radio DJ in Salford so :D
After a shit last year I can say that I’ve never been happier. Its since I’ve given up on academia and realised that I can have a future without being good at Maths and Science. I want people to remember me from leaving a pretty mark on the earth rather than being a pencil pusher. I was honestly close to depression, I cried myself to sleep most evening thinking I had no future but am all better now.
*I get by with a little help from my friends* They’re called Eleanor and David and happen to be dating. I have a date next week with a rather cute boy who shall remain nameless.
My favourites food is fried chicken, peanutbutter sandwiches, spaghetti, crumbly cheese, and gummy bears.
You should write on toilet doors more often, this was rather fun to do and I hope you appreciate it :)

I love the feeling I get after waking up ridiculously early in the morning and realising it is the weekend and I can go back to sleep.

I love the first hundred meters on my bike in the morning. Just before i warm up and my knees are stiff. Or the free ride in the middle of the night when there is no-one around.

I love just to shoot for myself and play with the gear around just for the sake of it and than mess with the picture in the colour darkroom.

I love the moment when i click with someone just by looking each other or after a short conversation and when i fell it will go much further (even if it does not)

I love the feel when i design a light for a month and when i am out there i just wipe the whole idea of and create sg totally different which works miles better.

I love to walk in a city i never been without a map and find myself in the middle of a conversation with someone whom i never spoke before (and my never again).

I love wearing my gore tex and listen the rain around me and watch the raindrops.

I love to open my tent in the morning when everything is misty around me and have my coffee and cigarette.

I love coffee and watch the squirrels battle with the cats in front of my balcony.

These moments makes my life happy males me smile and roll with the daily grind

Happy days!
