I listen to a wide variety of music, my Zune has an extensive
library including Ska, Reggae, Punk, Jazz, Underground Hiphop
(Rhymesayers ;p), Rock (Classic/Modern), some foreign, a lot of
independent, but no opera! :-D
For fiction, if you get a chance check out Anthem, by Rand. Whether
you agree with her philosophies on life or not, Anthem is still a
quick and enjoyable read.
In between classes, I just squeezed in On the Road, by Kerouac. I
think that the story was interesting but I would have enjoyed it
more if it was written differently. I preferred reading The
Motorcycle Diaries, that was put together from Ernesto "Che"
Guevara's travel notes. If you don't want to read it, then at least
watch the movie. ;p
On break from school, backpacking in Mexico, I read Back on the
Road: A Journey Through Latin America, Ernesto "Che" Guevara's
diaries and letters. It was interesting because it bridges the gap
between The Motorcycle Diaries and the Cuban revolution.
Also, while on break, I was able to read Zapata of Mexico, by Peter
Newell. It seemed like a historical account of Mexico by means of
an action/drama story. At times, all the dates and names bogged
down the flow of the book but not for long, because it appears that
from 1910 to 1920, Zapata was extremely busy and quite frequently
on the move. I would definitely recommend this book if you have any
interests in what goes on in Mexico.
Last week I read The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger because I
probably haven't read it since high school and someone had recently
mentioned it to me.
~That Complex Whole by Lee Cronk was interesting from a
~Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer; you should check it out! ;)
~Recently, I saw the movie The Hobbit so while traveling I decided
to read the book. I think that the book was a great read and I
really can't say that I would compare the movie to it because they
were so different from each other. So book alone=great, movie by
I eat pretty much everything or will at least try everything once.
I enjoy going to new and different local restaurants to try food
that I’ve never had before. What's your favorite local place around
