Quarter Life Crisis Countdown: Things I Can't Live Without

I'm posting a list of 25 items each day leading up to my birthday at the end of the month to celebrate 25 years of gathered wisdom and useless information.

These are my creature comforts. Sure, some of these things I can live without, but would I ever want to? Again, in no particular order:

1. Ockie (That's short for "Oinky"— my stuffed pig and oldest friend)
2. My computer (and the Internet, for that matter)
3. Fresh fruit and vegetables
4. Time spent with animals (Lucy, preferably)
5. Chocolate
6. Music (live, new, strange, sweet, old...)
7. Comfortable footwear (to offset all the times I choose to wear cool, uncomfortable footwear)

8. Water (obviously for drinking, but also for swimming and landscape relief)
9. Pockets
10. Comic relief (from funny people like Liz Carroll, Thomas Madden, Ellen DeGeneres...)
11. Duct tape and push pins
12. A seasoned frying pan
13. Neosporin
14. AC
15. Emollient chapstick
16. Creative downtime
17. Soft natural light (harsh artificial lighting is one of my biggest dislikes)
18. Mascara
19. My camera
20. A good confidant
21. American Apparel underwear (colorful, comfortable)

22. The ring my mother gave me when I turned 18 (given to her by her mother when she was 18)
23. Romance
24. Bass (I can hang with punk guitar, but I was raised on bass)
25. Variety

Thanks, Lis. No, not my boots... I can only imagine how ridiculous those would look on me. Yes, Neosporin. I'm always getting random boo boos and they never heal well. Neosporin helps.
