Best Adventure
Falling in love. Skydiving or running a marathon sounds cool on paper, but experiencing love is an adventure for your soul.

Best Advice
I once read that holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. Sometimes being human means behaving badly and messing up, so it’s important to learn how to forgive—and be forgiven.

Best Splurge
A 1966 Gibson ES-330 TD. I was on vacation with my boyfriend in California, and we saw a little store that sold vintage guitars. I didn’t plan to get anything—I love the ones I already own—but I went for it. I’ve played it every day since I found it in March, so it was a good buy.

Best Companion
My closest friend of two decades. We haven’t lived in the same state since we were 18, so we can’t hang out on weekends and get our nails done. But we do talk on the phone for hours like Oprah and Gayle. Though I’m sure Oprah can send a jet for Gayle.

Best Comfort Food
I’ve loved grilled cheese sandwiches since I was young. That’s almost all I ate in college because my roommate had a sandwich press and our dorm didn’t have a kitchen. And when I learned that grilled cheese and tomato soup is a common pairing, I tried it and thought, Yeah, this is dope.

Best Collection
None. I don’t like clutter. A lot of people have coffee makers, rice cookers, and toasters in their kitchen. Me? Nothing.
