This rant happened about a year ago and I just thought of it and got annoyed all over again.  When I as a student and the teacher wanted us in teams they would always go through and give us a number and say "Okay all the 1's sit here, all the 2's sit here..." etc.  I tried that with my class when I was new and didn't really understand their levels and their brains literally all exploded.  There was so much commotion that my old coteacher had to come out of hiding in the little private room attached to my classroom and sort it out.

One of my third grade students has a nasty cold and doesn't cover her mouth when she coughs, etc., and she gave me a massive hug around lunch time today... :cry: I would have taken her arms off of me except that she gets bullied a lot and a couple of boys called her disgusting during class the other day. :sad: I will risk getting sick again, I guess... :blank:

Haha, yupppppp. I never have the heart to tell the unpopular ones when they're being disgusting. When a cool kid is being gross, though, I let them know and make sure to let them be an example of how not to cough.



Completely 100% unrelated: I genuinely wish I could quit smoking, but I just don't have the will to do it because I enjoy it so much. I generally spend the last 50% of my day looking forward to the cigarette I'll have when I get home. Sucks that it's so bad for you and such a gross smell on your clothes / breath / hair / everything.

Yeah, I'm the same. The popular ones can handle rejection because they know I'm not being entirely serious (or am I... they will never know) but the unpopular kids are already feeling sensitive just by being there so yeah... I don't need to add to their problems. :sad:

It was a really long hug, though. She had her arms wrapped tightly around my waist while we were standing in line and stayed there for a good three minutes.

Haha... I only kind of know which ones are popular and which ones aren't and it's mostly pure speculation.

I'm glad I don't have to tell you that that's poison. (Sorry, I'll stop now.)

I'm with you actually. I don't smoke much, but would rather not smoke at all. But when I'm in the mood, it's just so tempting. The only thing worse than smoking is to be perpetually quitting :sad:

I started smoking August of last year when I had a month of absolutely nothing to do and I was super bored and depressed

"When the semester starts I'll quit"
"When I graduate I'll quit"
"When I go to Korea I'll quit"

I had actually managed to quit once for about a month but then there was crazy drama at the end of my summer vacation and I started up again

And then I was doing well on cutting back, not even smoking every day, but then Trump got elected....

Sometime. I'll quit sometime

Have you tried an E-cig... those shops are everywhere now but I know it doesn't give the same satisfaction to some.
It a hard habit to break, but the easiest way to quit smoking, is to break the habit that leads to smoking...

For example, if you are a social smoker, and start smoking around people who smoke, or smoke while you drink... then to quit the smoking you are going to have to quit the other that leads to it.

Maybe find something else that gives you satisfaction right when you get home...

chronic masturbation worked for me... but not its cause issues....

Nope. Not a social smoker. None of my friends smoke anymore. I'm skeptical about e-cigs in Korea, because I feel like a lot of them would just be overpriced Chinese clones imported and sold to an uninformed customer base, where as in North America people seem to have e-cig quality and stuff down to a science and anything is easily researched and reviews are everywhere. Plus, I heard you can't get nicotine juice here. Plus, I don't really trust nicotine juice unless it's like, some specialty store brand or something that has a good reputation.

Haha, I tried doing that with my after school class of 1/2 graders and when I told them to separate according to their numbers one little girl just burst into tears and spent the rest of the period bawling.  :huh:

Haha yeah I like to do that number thing but it almost always ends up in complete bedlam.

Once I've counted the first few, I even point to them and get them to say their own number so there's no way they could forget.  They still do!   :laugh:

Feel your pain. I smoked a packet a day at my peak, 5 years clean.

1 - Gym, with Death Metal/Gangster Rap in your ears.
2 - You've learned to associate stress with smoking, retrain your brain.
3 - Stay away from people and situations where you smoke the most
4 - Gym some more
5 - Did I mention gym?

Ok, these protests are getting on my nerves now.  Are they really going to happen every Saturday night until she's gone?

Right.  Can you also imagine how many times '아,추워!' is said by the pillocks protesting there?  It would be like a cacophony of temperature updates.

Lots of waffles available in Korea... just not at the same place.
Easy to correct that.

The air is dirty because of China. It's not Korea's fault.

Are you being sarcastic or do you geniuinely believe that most of the pollution here comes from China?

and your username reminded me of what's going to be my rant for the day - stole an Ediya coffee stick from the 4th grade teachers' office at my school because i've run out of my personal stash of coffee. turned out to be decaf. instant karma i guess  :laugh:
