Some things that I will always love:

1. The discovery of a new book that you just cannot put down and therefore must stay up all night reading and call in sick the next morning (not that I've ever done that).

2. Planning trips with a very, very small budget and making it feel lavish.

3. Having the time to make a yummy lunch for yourself, instead of heating leftovers and eating processed/prepared foods.

4. Re-watching episodes of Gilmore Girls (the early days when it was really awesomely great!)

5. The knowledge that, because you like to have friends of all backgrounds and knowledge and experiences, you always have someone to turn to for some specific kind of help. In this case, computer virus defeating help. :)
