          im not gonna say it changed my life but it definately reenforced/solidified some thoughts i have always had. i could just really relate to a lot of the issues presented in this book:

          i know it is may seem cliche since they recently made a movie about it, but i first read that book in 2004 and had read it again and again by the time the movie came out.

                                      "The Road" - I didn't want kids, but now I wouldn't mind having a son if it meant I could love him like the dad in that book loved his son. Hopefully we wouldn't have to navigate a post-apocalyptic world, though.

                                            "No, I don't worry. I'll tell ya, I'm a man who believes that I died 20 years ago, and I live like a man who is dead already. I have no fear, whatsoever, of anybody or anything."

                                            I have a quote tattoed on my back from Hagakure which is basically the same exact idea.

                                            "A focused life,
                                            A willing death."

                                                    Really good, interesting book that definitely reaffirmed some of my outlooks on life.

                                                      I don't really know a specific book overall, but more recently:




                                                      I considered the whole "green" movement before, but never realized how so many things are connected with the environment.

                                                                            Your favorite character? Sagacious Lu is my role model.

                                                                            however, i do remember bits and pieces of the story. such as: the part with a restaurant that sells human dumplings and such.

                                                                            Haha yeah! There were hairs in the dumplings, or when Lu Kui (Black Whirlwind) was hungry and went to some house, and the woman + her son were going to kill him and he found out and killed them first, and not having any food around he ate them!

And I just really identified with the bleak outlook of it. I think I'm gonna have to go read it again sometime.
