Booking Through Thursday question:
- Do you have any old school books? Did you keep yours from college? Old textbooks from garage sales? Old workbooks from classes gone by?
- How about your old notes, exams, papers? Do you save them? Or have they long since gone to the great Locker-in-the-sky?
I have a bunch of my history textbooks from college, and a few on archaeology and linguistics. They’ve actually come in handy a few times. I don’t have any of my old notes, though, because even I can’t read my handwriting. I cross my h’s and dot my o’s. Then there’s the infamous Colomial Latin America class I took fall semester of my junior year. It was at 8:00 a.m. Not a good time for me. There were instances where my notes just stopped with a pencil trail off the edge of the page. Other times I would doze off in the middle of one word and wake up in the middle of another. I made up so many new words that way. Needlesss to say, I did not have another 8:00 a.m. class.
