A child’s curiosity and natural desire to learn are like a tiny flame, easily extinguished unless it’s protected and given fuel. This book will help you as a parent both protect that flame of curiosity and supply it with the fuel necessary to make it burn bright throughout your child’s life. Let’s ignite our children’s natural love of learning!
This morning was my first time riding the bus to work. I’ve been toying around with the idea for a few months. I work in SLC and have had a 30-50 minute commute (each way) which really is a waste of time, not to mention gas and money. The company I work for offers free passes if we choose, and so I decided to bit the bullet and start riding the bus.
I took the express bus, so it went straight from my stop all the way up to downtown, and it was one of the nice buses with comfy seats. I read my scriptures, a little bit of Fahrenheit 451, and boom! I was already downtown. Super quick – less than 25 minutes.
These are the immediate benefits I see to take the bus:
- Stress-free commute, not having to worry about driving and not getting into an accident
- My commute to/from work was about 50 miles total daily, which is 2 gallons of gas. At current market price, that’s $6 a day in gas. More date money!
- Productivity increase due to additional time for reading and working on my laptop
- Less wear and tear on my car
So far, so good. It may have its downsides that I will observe with time, but after my first experience, I love it!
