- First there was that strong earthquake in the East Coast, which caused a 4-inch crack near the pyramid tip of the Washington Monument.
- Then Steve Jobs announces his resignation as CEO of Apple.
- Then Hurricane Irene. (Did you know? Hurricanes and typhoons are both tropical cyclones. Difference is if it's located in the Atlantic, it's called a hurricane; if the cyclone is located in the Pacific, it's a typhoon.) Hurricane Irene was eventually downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm.
- Then Beyonce announces she's pregnant.
Over here in Japan, there's a new Prime Minister.
Anyway, can't think of any connecting theme for the recent news which I can use to write a paragraph or two on, so this ends here. Leaving you with a link to tips on how to disinfect and deodorize kitchen sponges and cutting boards (click here) and Steve Jobs' famous Stanford speech. I liked what he said about connecting dots: "...you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something--gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever..." And just like that, it seems I have my theme: trusting that the dots will somehow connect in the future. :D (Pero biglang tinatamad na ako magsulat.)
Good night :)
