The Best Things

It has been such a busy day today that I almost feel as though I am going to collapse anytime. The morning started with housework and the usual laundry commitment after which I zoomed to college. Unbelievably, it took me 30 minutes to get a parking lot. In my mind, lecturing is NOT tiring - but finding a parking lot is stressful, tiring and annoying! Worse still, the traffic policemen now issue summons for all who park their car along Jalan Logan.

I made it 5 minutes before my class was scheduled to begin. Fortunately, the class before me ended late so I had time to recuperate from all that stress. A two-hour lecture followed with no breaks. I wondered how on earth I could have carried on with three two-hour lectures back to back ten years ago. Standing there and talking non-stop, writing on the board, trying to engage the students - is certainly a tiring affair.

But I love the classroom and the new cohort is really a great bunch! Such a refreshing change and most inspiring to teach. Notably, despite the noise from an event on the ground floor, the students were model students and gave me their undivided attention.

The afternoon was another session of driving to and fro - fetching my boy from sports practice, home, violin practice and then to his best friend's house. My former schoolmate just called and I have to leave for a Hash House Harriers bash now. Unbelievably, I will be going for my first HHH run this Thursday. I hope I survive.

In the mean time, please enjoy this beautiful photo that TO sent to me. Next post will be up later when I get back from the bash.

Take care and enjoy the best things in life that are free!

    TO Shouldn't the college be providing allocated / reserved parking spaces for their valuable staff / lecturers?

    masterwordsmith Hi TO

    Sighs..I believe they have to pay for their lots. I am not sure as I am only a part-timer. Thanks so much for sending the lovely pics and other links. You are a blessing!

    Cheers

    Chester Khuan What's the difference between a Hasher and a normal runner?

    masterwordsmith Hi Chester

    A normal runner just runs. A Hasher does more than that. It is really lots of fun...You can read more at:

    Why not join a Hash group near your area for a trial run? I am sure you will enjoy it!

    Take care and have a lovely week!

    Cheers
