Reading Theories


Today, we were talking about how, when a teacher steps into class, you can immediately identify the “Good Boy” and the “Good Girl” of the class.

Because they are likely to be the ones Reading.

Then the conversation moved on to how these kids fell prey to easy bullying in our environment. The theory was expounded on.

“When a guy reads, no other guy will bother him. That’s because all the other guys are actually jealous that we cannot be like him.

… But when a GIRL reads, other girls will sure kaciao her like crazy. That’s the difference between guys and girls.” (Triumphant smile)

And immediately I recalled the irritating invigilator who kept talking to me even as I was trying to read a book (which was held RIGHT IN FRONT of her face!) during our invigilation break.

And I couldn’t help but laugh in agreement.


Of Words and Letters

Today was the day! Microfiction Day.

This was where I sat most of the time in the National Museum from, 10am-1pm. Just me, an empty hallway, Melody and trusty Casio. The rules were simple; at the start of every hour we’d be given an artifact from the Museum’s collection, and 2 words associated with that item. We had to incorporate either one or both words into our story.

3 hours means 6 words, and a minimum of 3 compulsory words.

All in all, it was great fun, weaving the story and trying to fit those words in. A new experience for me.

They should be posting the works here soon, and online votes count! So friends, you know what to do! *WINK*
