I saw one of those FB cooking videos for animal cracker cheesecake, and it got me really craving those frosted animal crackers. Go and coupang and they have them! Hooray! Especially now that he rocket shipping applies to global purchases too.

Student English teachers were expressing disappointment because the school didn't plan well for them and they didn't learn as much as they could have. So I told them they actually learned a lot about Korean schools.

Apparently a parent of a 5th grade student complained to the homeroom teacher that English class has too much homework. My co and I are pretty confuse,d because we literally never give homework. Everything is done in class. I guess if that parent really has a problem they can come talk to us themselves instead of whining to the homeroom teacher, but I'd be surprised if that happened.

What's up with middle school kids having grey hair?

Quite a few of my middle school students have white hair.  Most that do have more than I  :lipsrsealed:

Combination of genetics and stress?

I_am_exhausted.

Between actually being able to breath through my nostrils and not feeling like a hot skewer is getting shoved through my eyes and sinuses, I'm so relaxed right now that I'm tempted to become a cat for the day.



@ chupacaubrey: I got my first gray hair when I was 13. xD It could be stress for some, but it's mostly just a genetic thing for most. Could also be a mineral deficiency, but whatever.

I guess it seems like there's a disproportionate amount of kids who have it. But I sure would be bummed if some of it is due to stress.  :sad:

Need to start planning summer camp. 

I'm thinking of having the kids make short videos (like a commercial one day) interspersed with activities and games.  I'd like to do an obstacle course where there's crepe paper representing "lasers" and maybe the floor is lava.

There are Koreans in my family, and they have all gone gray starting pretty early in their lives (you'd never know it unless you've seen their roots growing in, though), regardless of their stress levels, so I think it may be a common Korean trait to have and that stress can exacerbate it in some (much like how male pattern baldness is also fairly common in Korean society -- stress doesn't cause it, but it can make it worse more quickly, depending on the individual).

I get what you mean, though, I hate seeing my kiddies super stressed.

I have never wanted a turkey sandwich more than I do right now.

Where is this coming from, what is this?

Ended just last week, actually.

Besides, I only ever crave chocolate during my cycles. That's a trope I conform to. I've even tried making a chocolate sauce meant for meat because of it... didn't work out too well. But the movie Chocolat has me believing that it's possible.

Now I want to try a Nutella and turkey sub.

I have a strong craving for a PB&J right now, but I don't have any J in my kitchen. So I'm eating cereal instead for lunch.

That sounds so unsatisfying.

I'm going to go to the store on my walk home tonight and buy some jam and have one for dinner I think. I won't be denied!
