November is indeed here
Well, last year Winter had decided not to show up. I guess as a form of meteorological apology, Winter this year has shown up at the door a whole lot earlier. Last Friday, as I was teaching my last lesson for my latest stint at the school, one of my students told me that the flakes were indeed coming down. And such was the case yesterday.
No classes to sub for this week, but I decided to spend the morning downtown. Got to Yonge & Bloor at about 7:30 where the skies were gloomy and some flakes were wafting down. Commuters were tightly bound up as they carried their Timmys and Starbucks. Yup, Winter may have indeed arrived.
Spent my three hours at the library. Raymond Moriyama really did a good job with the place. Even after 30 years, the place still has a lot of attitude and atmosphere, although the 5th floor is still undergoing renovations. And I know that if I don't wanna work at home, I can take my translation stuff down there since there is free Wi-Fi. If I get there at opening time, finding an office, so to speak, will not be a problem. Ended up reading a book on TV theme songs.
