Even with the advancement of today’s technology and the multitude of things we are able to enjoy during our free time, it’s not surprising people would rather spend time on social networking sites or go out with their friends to places among other things. Not that I don’t, but it seems they have forgotten about the so-called simple pleasures in life.

One of them is reading, which has always been part of my daily activities. My first read of the day usually happens while I’m having breakfast and it doesn’t matter what material it is or where I read it. My goal is to learn something or to stimulate my mind and get ready for the work ahead.

Last time I’ve looked up Taylor Swift was when I discovered that she’s singing two songs for the movie The Hunger Games. The eerie looking music video of the song Safe and Sound (which  features The Civil Wars) fits the scene of Rue dying in the arms of Katniss to a T, like telling her, “Time to rest little one, you don’t have to suffer anymore.” The other song “Eyes Open”, which wasn’t included in the film but is listed on the soundtrack album, talks about Katniss’ relationship with the Capitol.

Months later, the lead single of her upcoming fourth album “Red” is widely talked about on Twitter.

If you ask me who is my favorite male anime character right now, I would definitely give you the same answer since I was in grade school – Li Syaoran of Cardcaptor Sakura.

Li Syaoran hails from Hong Kong. The successor of the powerful Li clan, his family consists of his mother, his four sisters and Wei (I count him here because he basically raised Syaoran through the years). He went to Japan to get the Clow cards but falls in love with the enemy 😛

He looks tough on the outside. Yes, he might have been a bit harsh to Sakura at first. But this guy has values, dreams and a loving soul.
