GenNext: My Favorite Thing

GenNext: My Favorite Thing

Sing to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music


Binging on Netflix and Rooster for brunch

Hanging with roommates and Bread Co. for lunch

Half-marathon tennies with tightly-tied strings

These are a few of my favorite things


Assisting ARC dances and Crisis Nursery babies

Getting life guidance from nursing home ladies

Cleaning out pantries when winter turns into spring

These are a few of my favorite things


Serving and hanging with GenNexter members

Setting up tree lots and carrying timber

All GenNext members like Dan, Steph and Qing

These have become all my favorite things


When my rent’s due

And my bank’s broke

When I’m feeling sad

I simply remember my favorite things

And then I don’t feel so bad
