I wish the little ones had lunch earlier than 1:30, because all they do in my class is whine "배고파~~~~~~."

My ears feel slightly strange lately.  Sort of as if the altitude has changed considerably and they need to pop.  Maybe some weird kind of sinus pressure?

I have nothing to do today. I hope you enjoy the 35 posts I've made today.

God bless you all.

Pet a dog today, or, if no dig is available, pet an ajumma.

I've only made two or three, but one of them is like 20 paragraphs long and full of math. Enjoy!

It's probably too early to tell, but it sounds like it might be an ear infection. I've learned over the years that lots of sleep is often helpful. Hope it clears up quickly!  :smiley:

It was the best I could do: I had very little time to cobble that comment together.

Has anyone mode or used a choose your own adventure game? I'm making one right now, and it's taking so long. Which makes sense given all the options. But whoooo.

I'm not sure how to use it in a big class, I'm just planning on using it in my after school class which has 2-4 people.

I haven't made one (though I'd love to) but there's a pretty great one already on waygook that I've used before.  The classes with kids who like video games loved it whereas some classes were "meh" about it. 

http://waygook.org/index.php?topic=83780.0.html

Check out the "Fantasy Adventure" by fwicksteed.  I modified the language a bit for my students but that was all.  It's one of my favorite things that I've found on waygook. 

EDIT:  the classes that loved it would beg to play it multiple times to try every path possible whereas the "meh" classes were satisfied after they successfully completed the adventure once.

I trusted I'd get over this by now, but it still really wears at me when I hear "waygook" this and "waygook" that, especially from Korean teachers talking between themselves. Like, of the few Korean words I know, you seriously think waygook isn't one of them?

The one I'm doing is "Can you survive the battle of Hogwarts." It's based on the Buzzfeed thing.

So when you did it for the whole class, how did they all do it together? Rock paper scissors for who got to choose? Or take turns?

Yeah. I can feel that. I had a really irritating experience where this one teacher who wasn't an English teacher was in the room and talking with my coteacher, and assumed that I couldn't understand what she was saying. She repeatedly referred to me as 외국인 instead of like 원어민 or 선생님, which is super disrespectful, and was asking my coteacher if I'm kind to students and if I work hard, while I was literally a few meters away.

My coteacher was visibly uncomfortable, because she knew I was sitting there and listening, but I didn't make a big deal of it. But yeah. Ugh.

Fewer things are less elegant than a cafeteria of Koreans trying to use knives and forks on Dankatsu day!

I always find it funny how people literally don't know how to use a knife and fork properly, and yet are always surprised when whitey uses chopsticks.

Is it bad that being on waygook for 15 minutes already makes me miss Korea? Even going through the ranting/venting thread! haha
