Taxi Notes

I have to wake up every morning at six and there is no day light savings time and having to start your day in the dark just totally sucks. Why, why, why am I even awake right now? Oh, yes, so that I can wait in line to get on an over crowded bus with no sitting room for the 40 minuet commute I have to make to get to the recording studio by 9 am.  How fantastic! To do all this commuting and to make sure I don't get lost, I have been given a Korean dog tag, that I can give to anyone I see and they will know who to call to get me home all safely. I also have a card that I give to the bus driver  of whichever bus I am on, so that he can let me know when to get off the bus at the right stop, one card to give to strangers I see on the street so that they can point me in the right direction, and then my most valuable cards, which I have had laminated:  the Taxi Notes. One Taxi Note has my home address on it, one has my school address and another has the address of the school's office in Seoul  that I sometimes commute to. I'm thinking I may have lost some pride. I no longer look at my cell phone and pretend to have a call when I turn around in the middle of the street and start walking back the way I had been going. If I really look lost, I totally have a help-me-card in my pocket to give to anyone who asks me if they can help me. Really. I do. It's even laminated. (I LOVE the lamination machine at work!)


  1. Hey girl! Don't worry about the card thing..just think of it as intermediate training for when you begin your career as a harikarishna at the airport!Guess what I just picked up? The MPC SPring 2011 schedule of classes and none other than Ally is staring back at me in some sassy boots! Yeah, I'm going to take classes so that Direct Loan doesn't come to my door with a baseball bat.Hopefully I will have some classes with Ally so that I can warn her of what not to do in her life (I will lead by example). Some mornings I wonder why I shouldn't just start my day off with a cheesecake.A whole cheesecake. I mean what is the point of fitting into jeans when my future is looking like sweats and stretchy pants are going to be a mainstay (as I dream of a new home with wheels).Anyway hope all is well on your end.

  2. When you wish upon a star
    Makes no difference who you are
    Anything your heart desires
    Will come to you

    If your heart is in your dream
    No request is too extreme
    When you wish upon a star
    As dreamers do

    Fate is kind
    She brings to those who love
    The sweet fulfillment of
    Their secret longing

    Like a bolt out of the blue
    Fate steps in and sees you through
    When you wish upon a star
    Your dreams come true
