When I was kid, I wanted to be a teacher for one very special reason: I loved erasing blackboards.
Decades later, that one dream came true. And I came through a very nasty realization: Erasing blackboards is not so fun after all.
Oh well! On another note, becoming a teacher has a lot of perks (emotionally and spiritually, NOT financially). That includes free access to the school's library! Erasing a blackboard is definitely not a perk!

One time, while waiting for my next class to start, I dropped by the library to get a few reference materials for my classes. I realized that the last time I really stayed in a real school library was before I took the bar exams in 2005! That was soooo long ago!
|Going to the library is like going inside a time space warp|
So, I enjoyed the moment and relished going over books, checking the card catalogues, signing the library cards. There's something really uplifting with books, libraries and reading. I have a long-time love affair with those three - oh but I prefer leisure reading of course!

I encourage you all to drop what you're doing once in a while and visit your local library. Who knows what treasures you may find there!
