My neighbors have added "blaring TV kept on past 3am" to their absolutely puzzling ability to slam their door with the same intensity as a sonic boom.  >:(

Fortunately the ferries were up and running today! Never have I seen it so crowded! It was worse than Fridays after work. Had to get up super early in order to make it to port for an early boat. As luck would have it, my travel school is canceled today so I can just lesson plan and... maybe sneak in a few naps... hahah
Haha, alright! Thats a nice break. Minus the ferry crowding.

There are, however, many birds that enjoy shrieking outside the office window-- which is wide open during the mornings. I'm curious as to what kind of bird this is, because instead of pleasant chirping it's truly a screeching/shrieking cacophony.

The two noisiest birds in Korea (in my opinion) are the Korean Magpie, and the Korean subspecies of the Eurasian Jay.
Link will send you to a recording of the damn things.

I live in a more rural area as well, so I too am blessed with hearing their screams -- starting from around 5 am to about 7pm.  >:(
Still prefer it to old men horking, though.

There's a bird in my area that sounds exactly like a cuckoo clock. One would assume that it's a cuckoo bird, but I'm no bird-ologist. Whatever it is, it's irritating and not at all what I want to hear in the morning.

I believe it's aviatologist. :azn:

I'm happy/mad. Turns out my school has a half day today to celebrate and have a ceremony for 10/10. No one told me.


I'm in the same boat. I was meant to start a 2 week exam today with my grade 1 middle schoolers at my main school. However, I showed up to an almost empty school (only about 5 staff members, including myself are here) and no students; I have no idea why no one is here either haha. It's just a regular day on the school schedule.

I too am not an ornery theologist ornithologist, but a quick wiki search tells me that (not counting the ones here on Waygook) there are 6 different species of cuckoos here in South Korea, so it probably was a cuckoo.  :smiley:
Also, some wood doves can sound a bit cuckooish as well.

Second time stranded on the mainland over the weekend due to ferry cancellations. Thank goodness I've friends to crash with. Just sucked not being able to properly rest last night in my own place.

Thankfully I don't hear much hacking/spitting where I live. There are, however, many birds that enjoy shrieking outside the office window-- which is wide open during the mornings. I'm curious as to what kind of bird this is, because instead of pleasant chirping it's truly a screeching/shrieking cacophony.
 

Well, the birds do live in Korea..where shrieking and screeching are pretty commonplace, especially among the dirtbag ajusshis here.

I'm more on the mad spectrum now. Turns out there is no school at all today and no one told me.

I'm fortunate that in my rural area it's pretty quiet (maybe since all the ajusshis are spread out over the country lol). Other than the screeching birds, hahah. Honestly, I don't recall hearing this type of bird call before living here.

Somewhat like the Eurasian jay but shriller (and screechier?) I think. And I also prefer bird sounds to that of old men being drunk or hacking up gunk.

The Korean Magpie (까치) is pretty much the loudest bird here that I've encountered on a regular basis.

I think they're pretty, but wtf, they always sound like they're killing each other.

Every Monday I get to school and think - this will be a good week. Every week without fail my CT mess it up for me.

Due to sign up for my after school classes increasing from last semester, she has had to take on an extra class (bringing her weekly total to 4 classes). It is exactly the same as my Grade 1 class, so I prepare the materials for my class and give them to her for the class she has to take.

This morning she asks if I can't prepare different materials for her class.

Well no! I cannot. It is impossible. Just no. Nope no. Impossible.

Seriously, ask me to prepare more materials, when I am taking work home to complete, I have 6 open classes coming up and you just sit there on your phone and facebook all day.

She's ridiculous. If she wants different materials she needs to find them herself.

I argued this ad neauseam, but was told it is part of my job and written into my contract. (My contract does say that I have to do any work as deemed fit by my CTs... or something along those lines.) And I don't mind really because I am just giving her what I have already prepped. But I do mind her thinking that I will prepare her extra materials... she can just kiss my lilly white pimpled ass. I think I have shut that down now.

I understand wanting to maintain a good relationship with your coT, but wtf? Why would she even consider this as something you would do?

Even without your own busy schedule, why in the **** would you agree to do her work for her? I mean, there's a big difference between sharing work you've created for your own use and creating work for someone else's use.
