I like this word "isolationism" and in the University Library...share you one story of mine during my freshman college days. I went to library to have a research for one of our math subjects, and as a freshman I don’t know where to start. Then I end up at the aisle of big glossy books, I picked up the least in volume and quality (it has a dull color, I think that’s how most of our math books then, dull in color but overly used). I just opened it, read, then it hit me, im in the wrong aisle and the wrong book in my hand. Err as it may be but I still continued what I’m doing. The book is now discussing about relationships, showing pictures of a man and woman, then kissing, and alas pictures with explanations doing the “thing” in different positions. It’s a Kama Sutra like book. I don’t know what version and why the hell it ended up in the library, somebody must have left it and librarian or somebody just put it in there. But you know a teenager is a teenager, I went in the farthest corner of the library, to continue exploring it. Then maybe at least 30 minutes engrossed in “the book“, a voice over my shoulder said (in loud, authoritative woman voice), “WHAT IS THAT.”? I thought o no, this is it. The old lady librarian has caught me. Startled but still managed to tell her, “It’s a Medical Book ma’am, and im doing a research in human nature/family planning.” As sudden as her appearance, she turned back and never said another word. I don’t know why she bought my alibi, maybe because she’s just old or I really looked like a medic boy and not an engineer wannabe student or she just understood teenagers. But all is well, aside from being embarrassed from the whole library community I also got a very technical book..for free.
Lesson…hmmm you’re not always alone in the Library .. remember that.
Hehe..man why am I always reminiscing the past. Homesick. (sorry this is not my blog, I just wanna share it hehe). Sorry Miss red hehe
