On this note...why in the evening does my neighborhood always smell like someone lit up a doobie? lol

There's a dress shop I walk by every so often that has its windows decorated with leaves. They're mostly bunched up in the corners in a docorative fashion but a few of them are placed to look like they're blowing gently through the wind.

Today I noticed they're marijuana leaves.

I'm similar.  During the term when I have loads to do, I'm really up for it and efficient.  Students have self-study this week, tests next week and then Chuseok.  I should be making the school newspaper on Publisher, I should write my seat plans for my students for after Chuseok, I have to check out and grade the new textbooks for next year, I should edit some articles for some other students, I should be checking out what to do in Kyushu in Chuseok, and if I was smart I'd do some night class planning for after Chuseok.  But here I am.....  That 'let's do it!' has gone this week.  Not sure if that is a good thing or not!

Sure, I invigilate usually two out of the four tests each day.  We have the main invigilator and then a secondary invigilator, which is usually me.  I can get put with any teacher, which is kind of fun.  When I was in middle school I was only put with English teachers.  Now it's anyone.  So I joke with them, telling them it's their lucky day to invigilate with me  ;D TPG!!  Shouldn't you be planning your Nippon plan????

Damnit, I didn't even start yet.  Only flights done so far.  Actually, I called my bank to extend my credit card limit by 300 000 won today and they said 'Oh, you can extend it to 9.6 million, if you want'  That is a 4 million increase on my limit now.  Obviously, I said, no thanks.  But how much fun could I have in Kyushu with that 4 million over five days!?!?!!  :evil:  Private, luxury, mountain onsen with those clippy-cloppy wooden shoes?    ;D

I've got to find out what's going on with my school's internet security settings.  I can't access my email-the page loads, but the blue bar never goes across-& now I can't see or make comments on FB. 

My coT is gone for the day because the first graders went to see a movie.

i have one class full of really tall boys with big personalities. they seem about a year or two older than the rest of the class. i heard from my CT that they cause their homeroom teacher such a headache because they have so much energy and are so domineering.
but i was actually surprised to hear that, because in our class they are so focused and well behaved. i thought they just happened to all be mild-mannered giants but nope, turns out the biggest and rowdiest boys in the class also happen to have the best English skills, probably top 10 in their grade. Lucky for my CT and I, they put all of their energy into learning English and their class is one of my favorites to teach. kinda funny that they change once they get to their homeroom. usually it's the other way around!

As my British driving licence expires in January next year, I've realised now after checking that I can't renew it.  It was valid for ten years.  But now as I'm not a resident, I can't renew it.  In fact, from checking yesterday, my using it for the last ten years when I'm not resident was illegal too.  :-[  It makes sense, I suppose. I actually felt a little sad yesterday that I couldn't use it anymore.  Now I have to look into getting an international licence from here whenever I go home.  My wife said they are valid for a year.   :sad:

You can get them at your local police station. Not expensive either.
