Your math could use some work!  :laugh:
But man, was the air quality bad this last week!
I'm looking forward to the rainy season just to flush all that crap out!

     There we go!
     But seriously, I'm curious about why so many people compare areas with problematic air quality to LA. Is LA really that bad? Insofar as I know, it's not an industrial mecca, and its location on the coast would mean that it gets onshore breezes to help disperse all that toxic crap.
    Looking at air pollution rankings, LA seems to hold a steady 5th place on many charts.

Historically, LA was the city which came to mind when the mention of bad American air came up. But there have been a lot of improvements there lately. (Get credit to liberals for that one.)

Well in my town I could see the hills in the distance, so it was starting to clear up yesterday. Unfortunately it came back with a vengeance overnight.  :cry:

You live in a town not a city and yet the air is still bad? I'm guessing you live on the West coast?...more coal plants there and yellow dust blows over from China...

First lesson of the day was cancelled for "special classes". I have no idea what that means, but am excited to drink my coffee in peace this morning.

Another issue in rural Korea is agricultural burning.

Some places I drive through look like war zones!

However the students may feel, I'm having a good time so far with the new coT!  It's like.. we're actually coteaching.   :huh:  Guess we'll see how long this active involvement lasts.  Fingers crossed it does, though. 

Had an open class today and I was uncertain how the parents were taking it (there were like 5 mothers who stopped by) as they looked super stern and weren't smiling, but turns out 3 of them had filled out evaluation forms and given us perfect scores on everything  :laugh: :laugh: 

My coT also said he overheard some of the parents saying they were pleased.  Whew!  Glad that's over with!

That's true I think.

Yep I'm just below Seoul near the coast. There are some factories around and there's also quite a bit of construction and I imagine all that dirt and dust gets blown around doesn't help.

My happy thing: I was having a hard time keeping up the peppy act (teaching with 10 different coteachers is draining), but an adorable little 2nd grade girl that came to winter camp told me that I look like a princess. It definitely lifted my spirits.

I had an amazing birthday celebration this weekend! On Saturday night my friends and I went to the Hard Rock Cafe and it was such a blast. Good food, friendly staff, decent music, and birthday perks! It was nice to see all my favourite people in the same place <3

A 5th grade boy in my school has been stealing some of the teachers really nice high heel shoes. It's happened to 3 different sets of teachers.

It makes me happy that no matter what place you are in....kids are always weird.   :afro::cheesy:

Like... stealing them to keep? Or stealing them to just be cheeky?
