Life is a series of surprises.
I was feeling a little low since last night because my conversation with X didn’t turn out quite right. And as a consequence, I couldn’t understand the words I kept staring at.. nodes..linked list..pointers. Whatever. I couldn’t find a way, a technique.. to teach it to the Data Structures students so that they’ll understand it. Role playing, perhaps? My imagination wouldn’t work because other thoughts keep bugging me.
So I got up from bed, said a prayer (Lord, let me take my mind off him!), went straight to my garden, watered my plants, took out the trash, and opened up my lappy to write a post (so I could face my issues one by one). But before I could write my post for the day, I did my usual routine: Yahoomail, Gmail, Facebook, Sacha Chua… and surprise!
Sacha wrote a post On Circumstances and Somebodies, and I thought, “oh, how timely! I could relate to this post…” and then, at the end of the post she thanked me! It felt nice – how my previous post became an opportunity for me to meet Sacha’s mom and for Sacha to write a great post.
