Jujube tea is baller as heck and it smells amazing. Mix that life with some fresh ginger, and you've got a premium tea life going.

I'm okay with it but I'll admit that it's never going to be my first choice of teas.

Fresh ginger tea, though. I can't get enough of it.

No, its... I can't describe it. It's like a bastardization of a tea smell I'm familiar with. But its not jujube, though I have seen some of the teachers drying out some of those, so I'm guessing that tea will be coming soon too.

Trying to remember if arrowroot tea is strong smelling but I don't think it is. Let us know if you ever figure it out because now I need to try this stuff, whatever it is.

Guh. Arrowroot anything also baller as heck.

Man, everytime peeps be talking about mayo life, I get the mad hungers.

Ever since my school got a cafeteria, there's no more self-serve lunch for teachers, so I'm literally eating child-sized portions, and while it's helping me lose weight, I'm (arguably) a grown-ass man who needs more food than literal children.

My schools office is so bloody hot right now.

I moved in to the classroom to get away from the heat at about 9. I've just remembered my chocolate was in my bag in the office. It's melted. Chocolate melts at 34-35C.

Yes, well, some of us don't have heat and must manage with a mug of hot water.  :sad:

Now, if they would only cancel the winter English camp and deskwarming duties to save on electricity ;)

I'm just curious, what does your profile quote "My ring is my mansion." mean / refer to?
Sounds very zen!

haha yes. my principal is also complaining about the heating bill. well, reduce the length of the semesters, then you won't need to spend so much on heating and aircon. korea already has some of the longest semesters in the world.

and cut out all the summer and winter camps, which will reduce the time that needs to be spent on heating and cooling by an extra 2-3 weeks per year.

Actually, it's a quote from a guest verse on Lil B's song "I Look Like Hannah Montana," and it's actually 'My ring is a mansion,' which means it's really big / he is rich.

I'm glad you realized it. Lil B always promotes #positive feelings and he is extremely zen. Lil B loves you. If you do decide to youtube the song, though, please be aware that some of the content probably isn't appropriate for work.

I love ginger. My grandma used to cook with it all the time back home, using big chunks, but I had never had it as a tea before coming to Korea. At my first school, my CoT was out sick for a couple of weeks and they brought in this super sweet old lady substitute co who made me fresh ginger tea every day. It was strong, but so good! I have been a fan since.

As for the mystery tea, if I do figure it out, you can have a mug while baking your mayo-choco cake.

I'm basically addicted to ginger. Tea is an easy way for me to get my fix.

Yes, I might even add it to my mayo-choco cake. Yum.
Of course today is the first day they don't have the tea for me to sniff out!

Ah, sorry for the misquote (it'll never happen again, promise!). And +1 for the warning!

On average how many times a day do you say "Hello'

I honestly have started to dislike the word!

You can add 'delicious' and 'handsome' to that list of words that have lost all meaning since I have lived in Korea.

I wish they would at least tone back winter camp for the same reason. :P I've been informed, that I have to do 6-7 weeks of camp during the 8-9 week long winter break. >.< I get to choose when I want my vacation, and everything around my vacation is winter camp.

Geezus, 6-7 weeks of camp? Thankfully my school schedules never align so I generally only do camp with one school.

So I requested my payslip from admin. Apparently this caused the admin. creep to enter the teacher's office and speak at length at my coT during which he said "payslip" and "pension" and my name multiple times in the otherwise Korean conversation. Wonder if my paycheck being noticeably less than usual has a legitimate reason as to why. But honestly, how hard is it to print off that one piece of paper and hand it over?  :rolleyes:

That is what I wanted to tell my co-teacher, however I questioned why that much camp - I highly doubt the students want to spend their entire vacation doing camp. I got told, its so I can leave early instead of having to waste time deskwarming haha.

Luckily, out of my 3 schools, only 2 will be doing camp. My main and ele travel school. The ele travel school is only going to be 4 days of camp. My main school is everything else when I'm not on vacation / elementary camp. >.<
Hopefully the students won't want to do it. I'm struggling to come up with a week worth of winter camp stuff already >.<

I set up a tripod to record my Drama Club's performance in the School Festival since I'm conducting the students.  Oblivious to everything around her, one of the mothers rushes in front of the camera, knocks over my tripod and camera, barely gives it a glance and continues to take a video on her phone!  I have 30 seconds of our performance and a 5 minute horizontal shot of her fat ass!   Luckily there were gym mats on the floor so the camera is okay but man, the disregard for others is just ridiculous!   >:(

Very bizarre situation, as public school positions usually require no more than 5 weeks of camp per year (2 during one break and 3 weeks during the other).

I take it you don't do camps during the summer?
