I have played the flute since 5th grade. Band has taught me about collaboration and working with my peers.
A Song of Ice and Fire is the greatest book series of all time. George R. R. Martin has created a world, complete with a great story line, complex characters, and dragons. I love, love, LOVE this series.
This is John Green and Hank Green. Together, they make up the Vlogbrothers. They produce Crash Course together. Hank does SciShow, and John has written 5 Young Adult novels. They have taught me how to imagine other people as complexly as I imagine myself, and that nerdiness in is awesome.
Doctor Who is a TV show about a 4,000 year old alien who travels through time and space in his spaceship called the TARDIS. While traveling, he saves the people and planets he encounters from terrible tragedies. This has also taught me how to imagine others complexly. Also, it's a lot of fun.
