name your favorite books, authors, films, and/or musical artists. (300 characters)

Crime and Punishment- breaking conventional stereotypes
The Grapes of Wrath- hope in humanity despite struggle and disillusionment
C.S. Lewis and the Chronicles of Narnia
Apollo 13- true film of a NASA mission that developed severe problems, and of the men that rescued it with faith, skill, and dedication.

What newspapers, magazines, and/or websites do you enjoy? (300)

Facebook- to build connections that last for a lifetime
Youtube- a vehicle to express individual creativity
Virtual Stock Exchange- practice investing in real-time environments
Role playing games (MMORPG's)- to relax and escape from reality once in awhile; fuels the imagination

Instead of listing off every title I could think of, I decided to list a few and try to say its importance to me. While being honest. But the way I did it, it just doesn't seem professional to me, and acceptable for a college application. Is it just me, or is there another way I should do this?

I would love to put it in sentence form but I can't think of a way to "glue" all these random parts together.

The prompt doesn't give a required form but i want it to sound acceptable (ivy league level).

Correct me if I am wrong...but aren't these questions from the Stanford supplement...?

If I am right, they ask you to respond that in less than two lines...

I think that answering what they want in the way they want it would be the better thing to do...

Also, the questions just ask to name the 'objects' not to explain why you select them...but that is just me...

This is kind of what I did:

Name your favorite books, authors, films, and/or musical artists.
Don Quixote by M. de Cervantes, Ayn Rand, Ricardo Arjona, Gerardo Tamez.

What newspapers, magazines, and/or websites do you enjoy?
I enjoy Fresno Bee, Business week, muy interesante, bbcnews.co.uk, and myspace.com.

I might be wrong... =)
