What I Hated the Least Today 151/365: Trainspotting

Whenever I don't know what to blog about, I blog about Trainspotting. It's my favourite childhood film (sic) and one of my favourite books. The book is better than the movie, but the movie is good enough to have achieved a cult status in my book (see what I did here?). Trainspotting still matters. A sequel to the … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 151/365: Trainspotting

What I Hated the Least Today 149/365: Last Day

What I Hated the Least Today 123/365: Commute Cycle

After six weeks of commuting and teaching, I have settled in the routine so well that I perform it while semi-conscious. Today I perfected the drill and went through the day half-asleep. The teaching went smoothly and I fit among the habitually half-asleep students just fine. Then I dozed off on the bus. I woke up … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 123/365: Commute Cycle
