this is from last friday, 4/13

Here are five questions to commemorate National Library Week in the United States as it comes to a close.

What were the libraries at your elementary and high school like?
school libraries were too small. not enough of what i wanted and too many rules to let my imagination run free. also, it was practically against the rules to hang out inside.

What’s interesting about your nearest community library?
i love going to the hawaii state library (downtown). i love just being there and browsing the sections but i really appreciate the rotating community art displays in the lobby. there is currently some works by high school students now.

What is the longest you’ve had an overdue library book?
i still have one book... i think when i was younger i just walked out with it. the due date is 1997. i'm scared to bring it back!! @___@
but once i had books out for over a month and when i brought it back i had a $35 fine and my card was deemed invalid.
i would also like to note that my wallet was constantly stolen in high school and i no longer have my original card. i got my first card when i was 7; could barely write in cursive. then my card was stolen and then it was revoked and now i'm on to my third card. >___< at least i don't have the green card like my mom still does. Among people you know who aren’t already librarians, who would make a good librarian?
i know a doctor of molecular biology who is very well read and is always recommending books for me. but he rarely lends them out these days, people get into bad habits of returning.

Who is your favorite librarian?
i don't have a good rapport with librarians nowadays. my "home" library used to be manoa public library (i even had my first "job" there, volunteering for the summer reading program when i was in 4th grade. i got to stamp a lot of books and read a lot of books on the job too) but since they moved into the little portables during rennovation i've been all over. i spent a lot of time at mccully but nowadays i usually spend my afternoons downtown. the only drawback is that the place is so big, i don't get to know all the librarians. furthermore, when you're a kid, the librarian is like the tour guide to the world of books. but once you get the hang of call numbers and boolean searching there isn't much you can't do on your own. the only librarian i can recall by name is Mrs. Yap. she taught me a funny song about coca cola but i don't really remember the words now.

Thanks for participating, and if you can read this, thank a librarian sometime this weekend!

in honor of the now-past library week, here are two pictures i have of the temporary manoa library:

*sigh* that magical place of dreams where imagination is just on the next shelf...

speaking of which, i've just started reading- and frankly can't stop- stephen king's 11/22/63. i am so enamored with time travel... changing the past, or rather being unable to change the past. PLUSSSSSS it's all happening in my favorite era- the 50s. there's even a bit on swing dancing, which i have also partaken in. i've read half of this novel in two days, i have a feeling i won't be doing much studying until this weekend (when i finish this book).

what a disappointment, only 5 posts so far (including this one) and more than half of april gone! i really meant to update over the weekend since i was off friday, saturday, and sunday but you know... better living life than typing about it. ^^
on friday the thirteenth i got a 13 tattoo. i drew it up so it's hidden in a key:

so i can lock up all my bad luck. ^o ^
prior to tattoo time, i had ochem lab and successfully made the wittig reaction produce GLOW STICKS!!! yes, we made wittig reagent and reacted it with cyalume and hydrogen peroxide to make crazy glowing stuff!!

then on saturday i actually studied chemistry (paid off, aced my quiz today!) but also did a little biking (home to downtown to UH Manoa).

finally ended the day with my usual gang, talking comic books and cute hand bags and watching youtube videos of darth vader doing tai chi (who wants to learn tai chi with me? anyone?).

day three of my weekend longtemps was bai san in the morning, then biked ho`omaluhia nature preserve (hills! :P ), followed by mexican food in kailua and then horsing around again until the cows come home. i only have three words for you: FAST DON'T LIE.


(but i do say, cantina adidas was 10x better commercial:

more tomorrow, back to my book for now.
aural candy for today- song i have on repeat while i pound out chemistry notes:

  1. Wow, the Mānoa Library really brings back memories. Our usual routine after school at Noelani was to hit Toyo's Superette for goodies, then hang out at the library where we would often get into mischief. The library manager would often sit in his glass-walled office and pick his nose, safe behind the same veil of invisibility some drivers engaged in like activity apparently believe they are cloaked in — much to our horrified/delighted amusement/disgust. Good times...
