The soap they use in our staff room sink where I often wash my hands is like a bar of hard plastic. I scrub and scrub and there's no lather. I mean, I guess it'll last a long time, but is it actually doing anything?

For the first time I've had one of those classes that I see other people talking about. I feel bad for judging some of those teachers or assuming it wasn't as bad as they said it was. It is as bad.

3rd graders, after school. Some were on their phones, talking when I was talking, ripping up my paper.

I may have been partially to blame because I was a bit messy today.

However this is the first time, even though I have experience teaching alone, that i've felt a total lack of respect from some of them.

I'm doing the classic Kevin thing where I fall in love with someone even though I shouldn't.

But she's the most beautiful woman I've ever met and it's better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all, right?

Bruh, just the one date, right?  Chill, man.   :laugh:  You remind me of my friend who starts imagining potential marriage and a future after just barely getting to know a gal.  He's such a romantic. 

Also, Mad Max: Fury Road is a baller film.  I need to watch that again.
I read a book last month about a kid who did that, fall in love with every girl who looked at him. It didn't end well.

@Pennypie- What level grade 3? High school, or just really bad elem. third? :shocked: I teach at a high school and while most of them are great, some of them are just... horrendous.

Things rarely do for me. Being a hopeless romantic/eternal optimist sounds good on paper, hahaha. I'm trying to stay calm about everything, she's just so goddamn hot and cool.

Nah, not marriage. Just insane lust coupled with a cold bedroom. Simply stunning though.
Just sucks having a warm person next to you for three years.

Ah, shit. I wrote Kevin, hahahaha NO! Just CO2.

I am glad you are meeting the dimepieces.  If one of them has a friend holler at your boy.

Well, just don't travel to the Dominican for her (or I suppose Indonesia in this case?) and you won't end up like the book character. Good luck though!

I'm doing the classic Kevin thing where...

Am I the only one to read that and imagine that CO had smacked a nail into the floorboards hoping she'll walk on it.  Putting a hot-water heater on the door handle.  Putting Christmas baubles next to an open window.  Leaving a tool chest at the top of the attic stairs.  Putting water so it freezes on the steps.  Putting glue on some cling film and locating a fan nearby with some bird feathers linked to a trap device on the floor. 



And then if she can get through all of that, then she is truly worth it.

At one of my schools I can't enlarge Youtube videos to full screen on the computer.  And for some reason I'm not even able to download chrome.  CoT at that school is slightly technologically challenged so she's no help (everything is in Korean).

Also at the school where I have to go from classroom to classroom, I vaguely judge the teachers by whether his/her computer has chrome or not.  Hahahah

These Korean computers/operating systems can be quite frustrating.

I had this issue on my PC last year, they wouldn't let me download chrome and I was forced to use IE. My CT kept asking me why Youtube wasn't full screen. I explained every time that it would be fine if we used chrome or even bloody Mozilla, but no. IE it was. And the same question every single week about Youtube....

How many times have you been told in this country, "That is not good?"

No elaboration. No reason given.

Chrome has actually been blocked at my school now.

you can't open it at all otherwise it gets flagged by that 내PC garbage program.

i teach in the homerooms and now am forced to use IE.

except on my computer in the teachers' office, which for some reason seems to have escaped this block. maybe because i went nuclear on this computer at the beginning of the year and deleted as many of these stupid security programs as i could.
