If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, an what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. In the first place, that stuff bores me, and in the second place, my parents would have about two hemorrhages apiece if I told anything pretty personal about them. They're quite touchy about anything like that, especially my father. They're nice and all--I'm not saying that--but they're also touchy as hell.

The text above is just how Salinger starts "The Catcher in the Rye". I put this here because I agree with the entire idea if not with the words. Nevertheless, of course, I am going to say something about me. I will write about topics. If you put all together, this is how I am. Sometimes you will see that it is just common sense but I think does not worth to fight to looks like different.

Happiness -
You must be happy now. I say this because I see a lot of people living bad moments and hoping to be happy in the future. Many people say: when I have a baby, when I buy my house, when I find my love I will be happy. If you are not happy now you must to change your life in this direction. Now. If you stand your happiness in future is probable it always will be there: in future.

Books -
I like to read, but I am not organized. So, sometimes I start to read a book but in the middle I put it at side and do not get the end. I think books and movies (art in general) open doors to you. You travel to other time and place.

Animals -
I have a dog and though I am not affiliate to some organization for to protect animals I also think we must learn how take care of them. Unhappily, in places like Brazil we do not learn even how take care our people. There are a lot corruption, hungry and violence here.

Religion -
My entire family is Roman Catholic in many degrees, from to go to Mass every Sunday (my mother) to just to say you are Catholic (me). In fact I think a little about religion.

Simplicity -
I agree with the idea from Voluntary Simplicity movements.
"Simplicity is not about poverty or deprivation. It is about discovering what is "enough" in your life -- based upon thoughtful analysis of your lifestyle and values -- and discarding the rest."
Also I like complex things that comes from simplicity, e.g., Haiku (An epigrammatic Japanese verse form of three short lines) and Origami (The art of folding paper to make figures and shapes).

For love and for hate
I swat a fly and offer it
to an ant.
