Saturday and my favorite book

We played a kinda elimination/concentration game and used some leftover Halloween candy as motivation (not the whole bag).

I advised one of my first year Japanese High School boys to grab "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" (in English),It will be years before he enjoys it's true value, but your never too early to expand your mind. This book was a life changer for me. Some people hate it and others love it. I fall in the latter category. You need to read every single page and consider it as you move along or you'll get frustrated. Great things come with great effort. This must be amazingly difficult for a student of a second language.
Message to Kei:
A LOT of my University classmates didn't "get it". Relax and enjoy all the big words and how they seem to go in circles that appear almost pointless until the end which makes zero sense if you didn't get the rest. It would be an achievement to even complete in a second or even first language. The book is like a parents words to their child. It will make more and more sense as you get older.

It's the greatest book ever written.

I took a picture of my leg because I have 2 fashion seasons. Surf shorts and Jeans. The Surf shorts have reached the end of the season and it's time to bust out the jeans.
