My Week in Bullets

  • I’ve been challenged to post 10 books that have stayed with me and contributed to the person I am today. Here goes…
    1. The Bible. My favorite book is Revelation.
    2. Anne of Green Gables,  Lucy Maud Montgomery
    3. Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
    4. Chronicles of Narnia, CS Lewis (My favorites are The Last Battle and The Horse and His Boy)
    5. Left Behind for Kids, Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins
    6. The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnet
    7. The Adventures of Tintin (yes, that should count!)
    8. The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho
    9. The Hobbit, JRR Tolkien
    10. Leo the Late Bloomer, Jose Aruego

 

  • Speaking of books, I hung out at the ATS Library one time and I found myself browsing through the card catalog. I miss the smell of old index cards mixed with old wood! As I was leafing through one drawer, the librarian came up to me and told me to use the computer instead because the catalog there is more updated. Hahaha, I may look young but I’m actually a hundred and eight years old! Of course there would be computers available! What was I thinking? I got all the books I needed and found very interesting other ones and I was thrilled to know that I could take the books home *squee* Being back in the library felt like I rekindled a flame with a long lost love.

 

  • Despite the mega-complaints about our jurassic MRT services, I found myself taking the train to work (oh but LRT 2 does not compare!). I love the purple lane for various reasons: 1) it’s purple; 2) the cars are more spacious; 3) on days without students, the air-conditioning is superb; 4) it’s very near my house; 5) it’s very near where I work; 6) it allows me sleep in more (I can wake up at 9am and still get to work at 10am!) and; 7) it’s purple. The only thing I don’t enjoy about riding this line is sharing it with male students and young professionals who do not offer seats to the elderly or to women! It baffles me that they are students and professional, presumably educated and yet without manners. What is the world coming to? My values are too old school, is that it?
