A song that always picks me up and I always end up singing along with is "No Rain" by Blind Melon. Another song that always has an affect on me is "November Rain" by Guns N Roses. Ah, to be a young, depressed college student again.
We've got basil, oregano, parley, dill, cilantro, rosemary, and mint in pots out on the back porch. In the current apartment there's no backyard, so we can't grow any vegetables very well except for some things like radishes and I hate radishes.
