I've thankfully never had a bad experience with a doctor. I've had some things done that weren't particularly pleasant (I was born with Hirschsprung's disease, which is a deformation of the large intestine that has caused a number of issues, mostly when I was little), but my doctors have all been very good.

I read nonfiction mostly: History, philosophy, literary criticism, but I also read a lot of modernist fiction. I don't have a specific genre preference like mystery or sci-fi, what I read often crosses into many genres. I tend to like to stories that have a bit of a dark edge, though.
My boat will be called the S. S. Shag-at-Sea
My parents always said that if they had had another son he would've been named Nathan. But alas I am the only boy. I have a lot of names I like but I couldn't say for sure what my future children will be named. That's a decision to be made when the time comes. :)
I've never met a cake I didn't like. I prefer a cake that has whipped cream frosting and at least some kind of mix of chocolate and vanilla, but really I like any cake.
I'm well aware that I could not be a medical doctor owing to my squeamishness (nor would I be in a position to deal with mental health given my own issues), but I could be a doctor of philosophy. Yeah, that sounds more like my kind of thing. :)
Yes, happy mother's day to all the moms, including my mom, who is an amazing, supportive, wonderful person I am lucky to have in my life. :)
Apparently there is a law in Tennessee that "more than 8 women may not live in the same house because that would constitute a brothel."
I know some sorority houses that are breaking the law xD
Most often it's 8:00, sometimes 7:30. I've always had trouble getting up early. In high school I'd get up at 9:00 most mornings.
Yes, I have, at a camp in Oregon. It was scary, but pretty thrilling.
I do love sourdough and I like pulling pranks, sounds good to me :)
I enjoy camping and being outdoors, but given the choice I’m going to go with comfort. I want to be pampered :)
My life has been nothing but one long series of awkward moments.
Yes, it's a good day. My friend and I are going out for a night on the town later.
Sure, I love it and it honors my Irish heritage. :)
Crispy. Thin, crispy chocolate chip cookies are the best. :)
Good list so far, but I would add:
We should always be trying to improve and preserve the environment while minimizing our negative impact on it. We shouldn't need apocalyptic predictions to motivate us to do so. I don't care whether climate change is human-caused or not. We should still be doing things that make the earth a better place to live.
"These are my people and everyone else who sees the world differently are my enemy who need to be destroyed". It's the source of many of humanity's problems. Tribalism will never truly go away as it is part of human nature. But we can resist it when it's causing harm.
