I wasn’t really going to say anything – you know, like spring a little surprise or something… But when it comes to all good things, TNL is bursting at the guts to share (not a pretty sight, mind you).
We are getting a training room! Ok, ok, it isn’t that big a deal for you jaded sorts. But to old TNL who has always gone a-begging for time slots in Comp Labs around the vicinity to run her information literacy programmes (for those who don’t know, we teach students how to search for information for their assignments), her very own Training Room is like manna from heaven. Imagine – no more begging while keeping fingers, toes and eyes crossed, hoping we are not sidelined just because someone is clueless about information literacy or when a thousand and one more “important” things precede you.
The plan for a Training Room is there. It is going to be on Level 3. We know how many PCs, etc. But somehow, seeing it come into fruition seems to be a long process of choices and more choices dependent on lots and lots of people. Each of them having the power, the money or the clout to move or remove things. Hey, anyone can tell you – TNL has the patience of a saint. But even saints are plagued with doubts (good old Peter thought he couldn’t walk on water). So TNL tells herself to keep focusing on the goal and to complete the race.
Whatever that happens along the way such as having money only for screens but not the projecter (which makes you want to scream) are learning experiences that dot the landscape. TNL chooses to enjoy the landscapes – chuckling at the absurdness of situations and being thankful for the people who haven been supportive and understanding. And of course, chronicling what is happening…
Remember Level 3 as it was?
We knocked down the wall dividing Level 3 and the cooling tower area. In the days of yore, we had a cooling tower to run our airconditioning. But now the airconditioning system is centralized, thus, the cooling tower had been dismantled.
The cooling tower area which is visible from the outside will be our Training Room (hurray!). This is a shot from the BIZ2’s Level 5’s Function Room. Haha! See, TNL can now keep an eye on things from her temporary office and give you pics of the progress.
