My new CTs are awesome.
Less work than last year.
I hear birds and my fingers don't ache from the cold.

My school changed my schedule now I don't teach any classes on Mondays and enjoy a nice easy day to the start of the week.

My Mondays used to be that way... but then it just made Mondays seem atrociously long... making the whole week seem longer. I dreaded Mondays. I would rather have a couple classes to help the time go by.

Angelinkorea, you needed to step up there. You let a 6th grader go unpunished for hitting another student, and a younger student at that.

Meh. Kids hit each other. Kids will always hit each other. At least they did it for a good reason: making me happy.  :smiley: To be honest I am very comfortable with kids getting a smack for being a***oles. I was raised that way and I'm fine, and my mother hits a lot harder than a 13 year old Korean girl.

Also, technically I did not let anything go unpunished. I heard some noises and walked on. Maybe they were clapping. Maybe one of the boys fell and started crying. How can I punish what I didn't see?  :wink:

My students are clever, confident, and they make laugh. Every morning, I grumble and moan about having to work, how much I'd rather be in bed, etc. But by first period, I'm already laughing.

I work at a great school, and I'm very fortunate for this opportunity.

Totally agree with this, my students make my day every day  :cheesy:

Returned to my main school today (after teaching at a travel one) and found a set of stickers on my desk. Each sticker has a random little drawing and then my name printed in hangul!

I have no idea why but what a great surprise!   ;D

I FIGURED OUT MY WATER HEATING SYSTEM AND FINALLY FOUND EARL GREY TEA (that didn't taste like reconstituted flowers).

No srsly, the ability to take a perfect temperature shower is so wonderful. Top that off with some good quality tea, and this homesickness can simply gtfo.

I love this new thread. Waygook often seems like such a pessimistic place, that can be quite miserable for a first timer like me.

Nobody cried in my class today. Any day that nobody cries is a good day.

Nice, it took me like 3 months to figure out my water heating! Like it'd be scalding for a few second then drop to freezing. After a ton of googling I managed to find the solution. Now showers are awesome!

 :huh: What grade(s) do you teach?? Is there usually crying??

The lady who works at my drycleaner is awesome. She greats me by name.

Costco wool dress pants are one of the few off the rack items i can wear here, so I see her a couple times a week.

Today, 4 pairs of pants and a suit jacket.... 13500 ₩ ... but wait!

She asked, "coupon?"

"No coupon today."

"Today coupon 6000₩! Your total 7500₩"

"Kahamsanida!"

I highly recommend Cleantopia just off Sapyeong Dearo in Banpo-dong.

Spring is a wonderful time here: my bike ride to work was rewarding with the chance to see a variety of water fowl, blossoming tress, and a freshly cleaned up walking path along the water way.

And my co-teachers are great this year. They are nice combination of being interested in educating and being laid back.

Hope you people out there in internetville have a fantastic day.

I've experienced random acts of kindness in Korea several times, but not in a while. Yesterday while I was waiting for the bus home from one of my rural schools, a Coca Cola delivery truck stopped across the street to drop off drinks to a couple local small convenience stores. The street here is very narrow.

As they were getting in their truck to leave, a young guy hops out the passenger side and jogs over to give me a small grape soda and a bottled water. Typically I don't drink any soda/carbonated beverage(besides beer), but I happily enjoyed the grape drink as they Uturned and left.

Was a nice way to cap off a Monday that, while typically is filled with unruly brats, was unusually calm and tolerable today.

My classes finish at 3pm on monday this year. Only gotta do lesson planning for 2 hours in the afternoon now. Got 1st period free, then 3 classes, then lunch then another 2 clasees, so it's a pretty easy schedule too. Really makes the day fly. Much better than sitting at a desk the whole day.

I'm usually the first to vomit sunshine and rainbows, but that typo in the thread title is driving me nuts!

Anywho, got a wedding to go to (as opposed to the far more frequent funeral), a birthday party to attend (cake and booze for everyone!), and it's finally staying light long enough to go hiking and cycling after school! 아사!
Oh, and my overtime cheques are looking pretty fat this month. ^^

I climbed into a bus this morning that had been refurbished, which was nice.

Just right now. I opened this thread and saw the avatar of the OP. For some reason the thread title and the picture made me imagine a crowd of happy seals tripped out on Ees and bobbing their heads to some old Paul Oakenfold in a warehouse.

Image still in my head and keeping a smile on my face. The kids who clean the English room are going to learn about Happy Hardcore today.

Aceeeeeeeeed!!!!!

Yeah. lol, it's like saying Ikea, but not.

I felt like that seal perfectly encapsulates how I just silently internalize all the hilariously awkward shit that happens to me while living here. :laugh:

Found out today that all English teaches have 4th period free, so we're going to start dipping out for lunch twice a month.  Our school lunch kind of sucks, so whoop whoop~!
