I'm back from the dead, brah.

Hello beautiful people. :) It's me, the administrator who single-handedly created and designed this blog herself but is too busy to update it so she shoved the duties to the other administrator who has been regularly blogging on this blog.

SPM examinations started a week ago and so did the duty shifts during this period. All I know is that they painted the walls, washed the curtains, updated the inventory, etc. Just wanted to say a sincere thank you to the people who are kind enough to come to school on a holiday to carry out their duties. Your hard work is very much appreciated.

I think I shall end my post here as I don't have anything else in particular to write and I am busy updating my own. If you are interested in visiting my blog, you can just find the user named Dai-An-Nah on the shout box and click on my name. You'll be there shortly. Unless your internet connection is slow. Just don't stalk me, okay?

PS: I'm sorry. I shall update this blog more often.
PSS: Thank you to those who have been reading this blog.  We love you :)

Thought visualising (and no, this is highly unscientific)

Seven words. I. Want. To. Be. In. The. Library. Oh, I forgot. EXCLAMATION MARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Random, right ;P)

Immersing myself in the vibes of Zee Avi's island indie pop, far from the school, on an exotic island ; writing, studying, and running wild in the forest (though not all at once) I just realised something, I want to know what's happening in the Library right now.

Just last night, I was just sleeping soundly, when my colleague messaged me, asking me whether I can come today to usher in visitors from Indonesia. I got my hunch on a twinning program with an Indonesian school, but alas. she knew not. Too bad travelling can be such a hassle, so I can't go. Could've looked spiffy in my uniform, and just stand there overhearing whatever they say.

Well, all's done, and they've left. Now to grill some witnesses and get the facts. Or just imagine their pacing and incessant questioning, the Librarians just smiling like they are part of the wall. But then again, a comical mind could conjure a crazy inferno and everyone got saved by an unsuspecting portal into a book, which diverted them back into this dimension. (and maybe, just maybe, there were aliens who got allergic to books and sneezed the school apart, or maybe, nope, not that one, or perhaps...)

On an entirely different topic, one can't deny that somehow one feels left out in any social organisation for that matter. You get pushed out in favour for a more popular candidate, then get dumped at a miserable post as 'compensation'. Somehow, there are always slackers and defamers that pull you down with incessant drama. Nepotists and cronies, dictators and criticisers, hypocrites and empty tins; it just makes everything so un-egalitarian. Just imagine when left-wing and right-wing come clash in the general meeting, fiercely debating, the quiet and meek come and take over, as the Olympians with the Titans.

Oh, have I said too much again? Well, ciao!

First :) then :( but :S so :?

Randomly blogging, I guess, at this hour of utter liberty. Just been pondering on the title above (some random brainchild, I guess). I know this is so unprofessional, but the blog is pretty unprofessional anyway, so there.

In the final days of the first year in the second decade of the third millennium A.D., one just could seem to drift along. The Arab Spring just came and gone, a series of disasters, the beatification of a popular pope, a marriage of one of the world's most wanted bachelor, a creation of the new nation of South Sudan, economic collapse of the European Union, just to name a few events of 2011. I know I sound like a news junkie, but that is simply one way to measure time passing by. One could not help but feel like a spectator of the wider world.

Coming down to more digestible ( though more petty) events, the School Resource Centre itself has gone through some significant changes. Rearranging, restructure, re-aspire, reevaluate, rediscover... aye, that's a lot of re-s. The pinnacle of every social organisation is always dynamism. Form, reform, counter-reform, re-counter-reform, revolution, counter-revolution and the (somewhat crazy) cycle goes on. It's all human nature, I guess

So, henceforth is the end of this short post. Not just posting for the sake of posting, but hoping that the aspiring cyber-archaeologist would come and read this (somewhat pointless) post.

Plans ahead...

Just so you know, we got third in the aforementioned competition. Not bad for us.

Anyway, just going to he tell you about next year. With our dynamic Brittany as our Head Librarian, we could anticipate a marvellous year ahead for us. Let us just cross our fingers and hope for the best.

Hopefully, next year, we would have visit some great place, since we've had camp two years in a row. Camp is fun, but we've done it two years in a row, thus running astray from the usual order of alternating years of camps and visits. Then again, this year's selection of Assistant Head Librarians consists of only one prominent successor, also running contrary to succession protocol, so who knows?

Then, our annual field trip should be more spectacular than this year (not to say that Sri Pentas was uninteresting) just that we may go to two locations. Possibly, the National Science Centre, the National Museum, or the National Planetarium. Hopefully, I get to come along as well, alongside the entire Librarian body.

I also managed to get a glimpse of next year's Library Week. The events were numerous, but basically the same, since the forms that are taking part are fixed. One notable new addition is the haiku writing competition. For you people that seem to sigh blankly, a basic haiku comprises of three lines of up to 17 syllables, uses a season word (kigo) and cut or kire (sometimes indicated by a punctuation mark) to compare two images implicitly. Another competition could be a storytelling competition, and also maybe written book reviews. Whatever there could be, the Reading Month would be full of fun activities, so aye, I ken it's flipping fun!

But here's the bad news. The School Resource Centre Prefect Board would be interrogating incompetent Librarians to determine their commitment. Therefore, all you Librarians, beware! La Inquisición está aquí! Some would rise to prominence, some would fall bad; mais c'est la vie. We would also be officially adopting the Library logo that I have posted before.

That is all I have for now. See you next year!
