There is a guy I knew in university that I constantly see posting on FB asking for someone to babysit his 2-3 month old baby, always for free. I don't know why it annoys me so much, it doesn't affect me at all, but the way he always adds on "No compensation" gets me.

This actually annoys me just hearing about it. People seem to expect the rest of the world to drop everything when they need something.

I have a dude like that on FB but on top of that he's always crying about how he isn't getting enough on welfare to feed his kids (kids which were planned and born after him and his GF were on disability for 3 years) but then he posts pictures from "mail day" showing off his new 30$ records that just came in.

Some people are trash.

Ah, well my guy isn't on welfare. He is just being extraordinarily cheap. But in regards to welfare, there are definitely better ways to use it when you have to feed your kids.

Have you ever seen a kid below the age of 15 who actually dressed up for a wedding in Korea, aside from maybe the flower girl or the hanboked kid that attends here or there? It's always a sullied t-shirt and crocs.

I did, however, happen to see my first Korean goth girl at the last wedding I attending. An all black dress with white lace adorning the top that had a macabre feel to it.  Black stockings with black combat boots. Long straight hair with deep, straight-cut bangs that was dyed hot-pink but black at the roots. She was also slightly tall with a super-thin frame that made her seem a little emaciated and enhanced the effect.

Teach the same lesson more than once can be nice because I get really familiar with the material, and I don't have to prepare a ton of lessons every day, but it's so hard to be enthusiastic in class when it's the 5th time presenting the same information.

I wish I could leave my main school when I'm not needed to workout.  I teach the same lesson 12 times a week, so I don't need to lesson plan that much. It's hard enough to discipline myself to workout, especially when I actually have motivation around 2 and have to wait until 5 when I'm tired.

Could you work out at your school? My school has a track and pull up bars. Might feel weird getting sweaty in front of the kids, though...

Otherwise, I little snack right before leaving work might get your energy up~

My school does have a track, but unfortunately, I sweat A LOT and don't smell too pleasant when I finish. It wouldn't be a problem if I wasn't in the teachers' room at this school.  :laugh:

I think I'll get some granola bars to snack on the next time I go to Costco.

I tend to avoid weddings, but the few I've been to, I haven't seen any slobby looking children. Maybe one or two, but they're certainly the exception. Usually kids seem like their parents dress them up, or at least try to.

I must have married into a hillbilly family :sad:

Just received my first lowest-grade-possible student. Refused to say a word. I can normally coax an answer for a couple of questions so that I can justify giving this or that student a higher grade. But not this time. It's not his first offense, either -- he's not suffering from some kind of social disorder or anything. He just doesn't like English and wants everyone to feel it, and somehow a refusal to participate hurts us more than it does him?

The amount of effort that goes into the "I don't give a ****" attitude from some of these students is astounding. It would just be easier if they at least tried.

I don't know which I find more annoying: the students who refuse to say a word or the ones that repeat everything back in Korean  :lipsrsealed:

Got to work a few minutes late. The only souls to be seen were workers painting the walls. Eventually one other teacher showed up.

All right then.

I saw an advert for Air Seoul, and immediately thought that it would be funny if they flew to Gander (or Shannon). 

The Newfoundland (or Irish) accents would be superb!

Speaking tests are trudging on. Still have two more classes to drag myself through today. That doesn't sound like much, but I'm at that point where I'd rather walk through fire.

I think my coTs can sense my disillusionment with the world right now, they keep giving me snacks.

Yes I think a sock account is a grand idea. Perhaps i could have a happy me account and a miserable me account (so basically just keep this one going). ALSO

I clearly missed something on here today because of the constant "unavailability" of the site. People were muted but why?
