My Life is so Exciting!

I've been busy with thesis, and parties, and watching Alias, and reading, and all kinds of cool stuff. Yesterday some people from class gathered at the nearby nature reserve where we learned a bit more about permaculture. Permaculture is something I have been wanting to learn about for a long time now, ever since the first time I came across it a few years ago in Fujino, the town where I almost moved to a few years ago.

Anyway, you will surely be hearing about permaculture from me in the future. At first I thought it was about agriculture, which was interesting, but not really something I would spend a lot of time on (being a city boy and all) but now I find that it is more than that, it's about learning to use what is around you to live in a more sustainable way. Rather than fighting your surroundings, "dance" with it to make it beneficial. I have learned that many of the ideas I have had in the past, such as doing pushups to heat my small Tokyo apartment with body heat, are actually "permaculture".

So exciting it is.... so exciting.
