Is it just me, or do Monami brand board markers run out of ink ridiculously fast?


Hit or miss? I don't use the markers much but i use the basic pens for writing and some brand new ones either last forever or hardly at all. At least the ones I like are cheap and always in supply at work.

It was months before I read that brand name as two French words.

I am a bit embarrassed by that.

It depends on if the kids get a hold of the markers when you're not looking, do a billion doodles, then leave the cap half off. I went through so many last year cuz my CT would just let the kids play with them  at lunch or between classes and it drove me nuts o.o

I know i am generalizing, but Korean seem to have no sense for conservation when it comes to heating and air-conditioning

So I am having a difficult time with one of my sixth grade classes. No matter what I do they just don't like any of the games that we play. Like for example we did the whisper game and I had them make two lines which equal two teams, only half the class participated. My CoT even had difficulty getting them involved with that one. I try to stay away from power point games and do things that get them out of their seats. But it is like pulling teeth with these kids. They clearly dont want to be in English class..well at least English class with me. They get along well with my CoT, but mainly becaus ehe can connect with them on level that I cant because I don't speak Korean. Im really starting to feel like a shitty teacher. I just do not know what to do anymore. Its even difficult getting them to pay attention when trying to do the book work. Its just eye rolling, staring off into space, talking and just simply not caring. My other classes are pretty decent. LOVE my fifth graders, BUT the 6th graders man are ****** killing me!!!

Sometimes I want to punch newbies in the face... they have been here for 4 months, are still on a pink cloud, and everything is wonderful and they don't understand why you are tired and they never have that much work to do and  blah blah

ME: Yeah mate, try not just downloading the shite on waygook.  Oh you only have one school? Nice. Oh, and no after school classes for 2 hours every day at various schools that have required you to design your own curriculum? Nice. Oh my gawd only one open class for you and no telephone classes? How wonderful!. *shoot myself in the head*

Gawd I cannot wait for that pink cloud to turn to the dark storm cloud of misery... happens every year.... without fail... Yeah, I know, I know I'm jealous as hell.

why so bitter. lol. let them have their fun...remember you probably had fun at one point too..even if it was a long long time ago...a time you have forgotten.... you can bath in all their bitterness later when the time comes. maybe they do genuinely enjoy their job.... you probably just need a little get away or another career. whichever you want to chose. lol have some cotton candy while you ponder, it's probably the closest thing to a pink cloud for you at the moment. if you dont like cotton candy...then just look at it. they make some real cute ones here. ;)

Actually no I never had the pink cloud, and I have never had fun. NEVER. 

Also cotton candy is literally poison.  :wink:

There used to be a poison shop in my hometown. 14 different flavors. Green apple was the best.

Thanks for bringing in breakfast but putting grape jelly on a ham and cheese sandwich doesn't work.

Not sure if you are being sincere with your question, but if I had to venture a guess, it is probably because it is terrible for the human body.

I would argue that sugar is far far worse.

There really is no comparison.

just tried to send basedcowboy & pecan a pm but not sure if it went through...

basedcowboy - i was asking you about the poison-sugar thing. i didn't know if it was some kind of running joke or you really have some kind of diet or allergy thing.

pecan - i should've been more specific, but i was asking basedcowboy the question about sugar.

cheers fellas

TBF, so is smoking, which #basedcowboyshirt does.

Smoking is undeniably bad, but still, on a one-to-one ratio, cigarettes are a lot less harmful than 355mL cans of cola, unless it's sugar-free.

Also, my 'thing' with sugar is that I think it's gross and unhealthy. But that's just my opinion - it's obviously not objectively bad.
