I Finished A Book!

To: Crecente
From: Luke

Yes, that was really worth the exclamation point. See, ever since I graduated from university, I've found myself allergic to books. I read so many of the damn things that I just kind of...went off them. Can't read 'em anymore. Comic books, yes, but book books? Urgh.

So reading one, let alone finishing one, was a big deal for me. Yet finish one I did: it's called Can't Stop, Won't Stop by Jeff Chang. It's a story of the history of hip-hop, but it focuses on the cultural elements around the world that gave birth to its influences, and then the movement itself.

I never knew just how awful parts of NYC were in the 70s. Ridiculously interesting stuff.

You know that sounds like me.. But you know what? College books suck, Highschool books suck, Middle school books suck, they all suck. School itself sucks.

Now it is a means to an end, and if you plan on going to college or a nice university(if you have the luxury) then do good in the lower grades.

Anyways, reading non school books was the one of the best moves I ever made... A lot more enjoyable then any stupid ass school book, and can be just as informative! and 100x more enjoyable.

Good job!
