I am having an annoyed day. I think I am ill. I don't feel sick, I just have a raging fever and the chills and am super exhausted. So all the small things seem huge. Little spawn of satan in grade 3 didn't even get a chance to give me shit, on the level he normally does, today. He looked at me funny and I made him sit at the back of the class. Alone. Lunch was awesome for a change, so the lunch ladies decided to give me grade 2 size portions for some unknown reason and I am salty about that. AND if one more person leaves the goddamn door open I am going to burst into flames of anger.

I know this is all me. Truly no one is really doing anything that would normally annoy me. it's me. Today it's everything. Like why is my CT breathing. Stop with the breathing!!!

 :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Oh man I've had days like that. Where nothing TRULY bad has happened but everything just builds up and then, somehow, you find yourself annoyed that you're annoyed.

Yes! That's it. I'm annoyed that I am annoyed. It's awful. Worse, I took it out on my after school class and made them do a worksheet instead of a game. Then felt bad and let them watch BTS music videos. I need my bed and a whisky.

Also, I just grabbed one of those coffee stick things, that I never use, but I saw that the package said it had honey and not sugar, so hey let's try it. DON'T, Just walk away man. Walk.Away.

Tastes like dirt. Quite literally.

I understand that that sucked for you.............

But that's hilarious.

It's also really annoying when you've got something really important in real life happening that needs your attention urgently, but you're stuck in class and can't deal with it in a timely fashion.

So today, as I was walking into school, I saw one of the teachers at my school leaving to go somewhere. I decided to greet him and say 안녕하세요! But after I greeted him he went, "Aish!" and then turned his umbrella the other way. I've always suspected that he disliked me but it was just a really sucky way to start the morning. I can't speak Korean so maybe this is why he's so against me. But it really bothers me because I've done nothing to him. It's just been kind of a crappy week in general, and one that makes me really question what I'm even doing here.

ignore the haters. some will dislike you for no legit reason. granted, it is very rude and he would probably not respond that way to a korean. but just continue to be your polite self... or don't talk to/greet him if you feel like being petty lol. as dory puts it "just keep swimming!"
idk tho.

That's really unprofessional on his part. Don't let it get to you, some people aren't worth your concern.

If you keep annoying him by greeting him politely eventually someone will see his behavior and you'll be seen as the more professional one.

Lol I would totally go the annoying route and make a habit of greeting him politely, especially if there are witnesses.

Just got strong-armed into doing something that I don't want to do.

I was able to negotiate a bit and get a little something in return, so it's not a lose-lose situation.

Still pisses me off that I can't just simply say "no" without it turning into a big deal here, though.

Boo. That used to happen to me all the time at my old school. Thankfully that rarely happens now. But yeah. Miserable.

last year my desk was in the english room and it was sweet and i had my own kettle and everything.

this year office got moved to the teachers' office. i seem to be the ONLY one in the whole office that ever re-fills the water in the kettle. and when i do, and put it on to boil to make tea or coffee, as soon as it's finished boiling a bunch of teachers rush to it and swarm around it flies to make themselves coffee.

and then when they're done there's usually no damn water left for me to make coffee!  >:(

urgh! i used to sit at my desk while waiting for it to boil, now i have to stand there and watch it like a hawk to fend off any teachers who try to get to it before i do.

Oh fudge, I think there may actually be teacher workshop today.  I have no idea who or how many teachers are showing up, just that workshop may happen and that everyone will most certainly be of varying levels of English ability. 

I guess I should prep some ice breaker questions or some such.  Argh

Wow what a dick. People act so openly hostile towards the native teachers they don't like here. It's messed up.

I use this distinction as well. Coping mechanism.

My school has an afterschool weightlifting class. It goes on in the stage area of the cafeteria (I don't understand why), which happens to be directly below my office. Today they are doing deadlifts/clean and jerks. How do I know? Because everytime they drop the weights, my whole office shakes. 

One more hour and I'm outta here!

It's BELOW your office and you can feel it? Yikes.
