Teaching students about compliments. At the end, they have to give me a compliment.

"Teacher, I like your smell! It's so cutie!"

He meant smile.  :laugh: :laugh:

I just had a student run up to me.

"Teacher I have to cut open a pigs heart and will be gone."

 :shocked:

"Biology class! Whole class will miss your class because we are cutting up a pig heart!"


What grade is this??  I had to cut up a pig's liver in high school bio before.
Haha, it actually is for high school. 2nd grade HS.

Thinking about going to Vietnam for Chuseok.  Never been and it's on my bucket list.  Love the cuisine though, so I'm already raring to hit up some fine street food.

Do it! SO much tasty food to be eaten. It's almost overwhelming  :laugh:


I would love to pick your brain for recommendations.  I'm wondering if I oughta stick to one city (don't even know which yet!) or bounce around.  Food is my number one priority though sights are a close second  :laugh:

Do it! If you come to saigon drop me a PM and I can take you on a motorbike/food tour :)

At the same time?  I knew you were mint!!  :-* Can I add in shaving on the bike too?

sure thing, you can do anything on a bike here if you put your mind to it




I went into a bookstore one day when I was walking around and there is a coffee table book thats full of the many many things people have been seen carrying around on those motorbikes. It's pretty nuts.

Where did that third hand in the last picture come from o.o

That's dedication. The placement makes it look super uncomfortable for one person to steer and hold. Someone had a sore back from twisting half way around to hold that.

Played a game with my 6th graders where they guess a celeb's birthday. They not only refuse to believe that Robert Downey Jr is over 50, but they're convinced his real name is Tony Stark...

"Black don't crack." So goeth the saying.  :wink:

RDJ seems to get finer with age. His youthful self was not very attractive. But that's just my opinion~

Maybe so, but Berry credits her faithful use of sunscreen, even on cloudy days. xD

And I agree, I like middle-aged Downey better than baby-faced Downey. His looks fade into rugged with manly grace better than most.

The school just installed one of those fancy electrical toilet seats in the staff shitter. Not only is my giant carcass too big for the thing it feels like I'm being slow cooked and summer is just around the corner.

Lately there's been a weird beeping noise at night.  From somewhere outside. 

Reminds me of submarines.

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.
