I sometimes think I am far too introverted for my own good.

Maybe you're just rude~

Thanks for the reading material.  I'm not rude.  Just introverted.

Sure. Sorry if I came off as rude. I'm a bit of both.
That's ok.  I was just comparing myself to the Chinese teacher at my school.  She's always smiling, chatty, going over to other teachers and talking to them.  I, on the other hand, have resting sadface, don't do well with small talk, and stay at my desk.  I think I'll make more effort to be social.

What even does this mean? Is sun butter like body butter?

I think she's talking about sunflower butter (like peanut butter, but made out of sunflower seeds instead).

A new student has joined my morning class.  Nothing weird about that.  But...

In the morning at around 7:30 he comes to the teachers' office, gets himself a coffee and kicks back chatting with the other teacher who's usually around at that time.

It just seems...weird.  I mean, relaxing in the teachers' office and drinking our coffee feels a little bit too...familiar/casual for a student.

I was inspecting the goods on the snack table in the teachers' office when a coworker comes up and says:

"Don't think. Just eat."

He then proceeds to put one of everything into my hands.  :laugh: :laugh:

You have some of the cutest KTs at your school. Makes me jealous.

I think I'm going to walk for about 4-5 hours after work today. Now I just have to decide on a few destinations to make that happen because I can't just walk to walk (even though that's usually why I'm doing it).

Wish I could just go hiking after work for that long but it gets dark fast now and, I'll admit, I get scared being on a mountain at night. It's hard to see and I believe in monsters.

Same. I'll be perfectly fine and then suddenly get in my own head and freak myself out and I have to get out of there fast. Who knows what could be lurking.

Supposedly there are wild fanged deer where I live but I have yet to see any. Caution, y'all.

That sounds like the kinda deer that they had on The Oregon Trail game that would bite you to death.

What age is too young to show a clip of the Nightmare Before Christmas? For example, the intro song, "This is Halloween."

I remember watching it when I was a wee 'un and I never had nightmares but I was more afraid of Grandmother Willow in Pocahontas, for some reason she freaked me out when I was a child.
