Free???!!! What's the catch?

Today I took a little walk to a place I hadn't been since I was in high school...possibly even before that! I strolled along the treelined sidewalks to my destination. It took all of 15 minutes to get there...I could have driven it in about 5.

I approached and entered the brick structure with the quasi-Mansard roof atop it, and enjoyed the familar smell that brought me back to my childhood. (and the a/c wasn't bad either!) I smiled as I walked through the airlock into the main space. I looked around and took in all the changes as well as those things that stayed the same. Most things were in the same place as they were all those years ago including the not-so-nice woman who's been there since I can remember (and she still seemed nasty as ever!)!

I approached the desk and the woman behind it asked if she could help me. I replied that she could and stated what I wanted. She did as I had asked, so I thanked her and then turned to explore this environment a little more. I wandered around hunting and pecking for things here and there.

When I was finished retreiving the items I found interesting, I went back to that very desk where another woman assited me. As I was leaving, I smiled again remembering all the times, good and bad, that I had here. I even reminisced how Skii and I would come here after school to "do homework" and yet we never seemed to get much done there. I returned home happy about what I had accomplished today....and a little sweatier.

If you have yet to figure out to where I traversed today, I'll tell ya. It was none other than my local public library! I've never been into reading all that much. It's not that I don't like to read, I just never knew who to read. I didn't like wasting time reading part of a book just to realize it wasn't a good book (to me anyway). I'm still in a lurch as to who's good and who's not so good in the literary world, so I'm hoping my friends who read my blog (and are more literate than I) will help me as I begin my quest again to become an intellectual. (a post about that at a later time)

Walk On - by U2

And love
It's not the easy thing
The only baggage
That you can bring
Not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can't leave behind

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
Before the second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on
Walk on
What you got, they can't steal it
No they can't even feel it

Walk on
Walk on
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place
None of us has been
A place that has to be believed
To be seen

You could have flown away
A singing bird
In an open cage
Who will only fly
Only fly for freedom

Walk on
Walk on
What you got
You can't deny it
Can't sell it or buy it

Walk on
Walk on
You stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
How your heart it breaks
You can only take so much

Walk on
Walk on

Home
Hard to know what it is
If you never had one

Home
I can't say where it is
But I know I'm going

Home
That's where the heart is

And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on

Leave it behind
You've got to leave it behind

All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break

All that you measure
All that you feel
All this you can leave behind

All that you reason
All that you care

It's only time
And I'll never fill up all my mind (??)

All that you sense
All that you scheme
All you dress up
And all that you see

All you create
All that you wreck
All that you hate

My parents didn't even THINK to sue the kid, his parents, the bus driver and the bus company for it! AMAZING

Didn't need a silly test to tell me this!

Your Job Dissatisfaction Level is 84%

Your job is a disaster - it's surprising you've lasted this long.
You need to quit if you can, even if you don't have another job lined up.
As far as stressful work situations go, yours is off the scale brutal.
Almost any job would be better than what you've got!
You Are 40% Abnormal

You are at medium risk for being a psychopath. It is somewhat likely that you have no soul. See what all those years in Catholic school did for me??!!

You are at medium risk for having a borderline personality. It is somewhat likely that you are a chaotic mess. Somewhat??!! I have to disagree here...I AM a chaotic mess!

You are at low risk for having a narcissistic personality. It is unlikely that you are in love with your own reflection. Yes, but everyone ELSE is.

You are at medium risk for having a social phobia. It is somewhat likely that you feel most comfortable in your mom's basement. How'd they know??!!

You are at low risk for obsessive compulsive disorder. It is unlikely that you are addicted to hand sanitizer. Um...where I work, hand sanitizer is my best friend!!!
