Side note: I wish the books to movies ratio was a little more proportional. But the truth is that I LOVE seeing movies in theaters. And it takes much less time to see a movie than read a book. And I (almost) never fall asleep while watching a movie in the theater.

Number of places I've lived since moving out of my parents' house: 17
Number of roommates I've had since moving out of my parents' house: 21

And now you have a lot of useless information about me. You're welcome. I'm not going to stop recording useless information or seeing movies. But maybe this year the book list will be longer and the roommate list will stop growing.
