Day 29: Hold on tight, this is a Korean Bus

The ring I grab on while I am in the bus

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but country-side bus drivers are a bit lunatic, and that’s putting it nicely. It seems they are always in a rush, although quite honestly I don’t see the need for speeding, most of the passengers are good old folks trying to get back to their farm, I don’t think they need to get home any faster. I have to grab on tight in every curve as everybody shouts to the driver to slow down, albeit deep down, I think they enjoy it, because they always end up chuckling, especially when they see me bouncing up and down, back and for.

Today was a good day, I felt pretty sick most of the day, but right now I feel strong as a bull, my kids gave me some candy because they heard I was sick, it was a quite a gesture, which will be rewarded accordantly with superb lessons (and loads of chocolates) next week. I am currently reading “The Tipping Point” by   Malcom Gladwell , and I found this really cool reference about teaching kids, I hope you find it as interesting as I did.

“You try to find the kid’s strengths, so you can play to them. You try to understand the kid’s weaknesses, so you can avoid them. Then you try and teach that individual kid’s profile”

Day 21: Spring is in the vicinity

April 2, 2010 Posted by Alfredo. Category: Journal,Photography. Tags: , ,

Spring is almost here! Hip, hip, hooray!!

It’s been a long gloomy and soggy week (both literally and metaphorically). But at the end of the week, spring came and saved the day week. I’ve been reading a lot and in consequence I’ve been pondering a lot (yes, reading makes you think), it seems like the whole soul searching thing is finally kicking in. I am grateful for what I have and the opportunities I’ve been given, this is the best time to start dreaming big (See what a little bit sunshine can do for you?). I don’t want to go into details, but at least I wrap this entry with this:

“That is life, it forces you to laugh when you don’t feel like it, to cry when you don’t want to cry, to say something is not ok when you think otherwise. Life pulls you away from the people you love and it ties you with a rope to people you don’t want to associate with. No, life is not like that. It’s me, in this moment, in this instance, being tossed around by the whirlwind of life.”
