Seeing as I myself am not ready to commit (my track record with relationships is only slightly longer than Rupert Grint, who claims his longest relationship was a month), so sure, why not? I can't guarantee I'll have figured it out myself before the guy has, though.

I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in a 36-hour period.

The Doctor. Hands down. How could that even be a question? Who wouldn't automatically pick him? A "day" in his world could be a whole lifetime! And even if we were strictly limited to a 24-hour-period, there's no telling how many different alien worlds he could show me in that time.

In the last five years, I studied abroad in England, graduated college, got a 'real job', and started graduate school.

I think all of these things were positive, but especially the study abroad and the 'real job' parts. They both have helped me to grow up a lot more and to learn to navigate the world on my own. Now if only that 'real job' would pay enough for my to afford grad school and moving out of my parents' home, and not just one or the other.

[Error: unknown template qotd]I'd have to say that reading other writer's work and identifying what makes their work good and what makes it bad helps me to improve my own writing. A writing teacher of mine once told me that he doesn't think authors should take a year off to write, which is often the case, but should instead take a year off to read. I completely agree with that statement. Just as studying other artists helps a painter or a sculptor improve his work, I think that any writer can improve upon examining and studying the work of others.
