While dripping sweat walking home yesterday, I had the happiest realization. As I'm leaving Korea in a few weeks, I'll never have to hear the chorus of 추워s in the wintertime ever again.

I get an odd satisfaction over hearing this for some reason.

Could I be a sadist?

Market day is Friday so I'm really excited that I don't have to teach any classes. The students are trying to bribe/butter me up for stamps. "Teacher, you're an angel. Stamp, please."  :laugh: "Teacher, I win game. Ten stamps, please."  :laugh: :laugh:

Also, we're making banana "ice cream" for summer camp and I'm super stoked because I haven't made it in forever (read: I'm too cheap to buy a blender). We were thinking of toppings to let them dress it with and I was like "peanut butter, gummy bears, chocolate chips, nuts...let's just get all the things I like."  ;D

How will you do that without a blender?? :O I might just steal your idea...

Oh, I meant I haven't made any at home. We have a blender at school and my coT is bringing hers from home.

You totally should! There are so many recipes...banana "ice cream" with crumbled Oreos and caramel drizzle is absolute heaven. And it's so easy to make. Wait until the bananas are ripe/overripe, freeze them overnight, throw them in the blender and there you go.

Ohhh hahaha okay that would make more sense. Yeah, I might do that. I have a blender at home so I can probably just bring that. :) Thanks~

Edit: Just remembered as I typed that out that I have no budget... so... I'll have to think about it. :(

School served an American style chowder for lunch's soup. My 6th grade boy had 3 servings. It makes me happy that they liked something so american in flavor. And they actually did a good job, it tasted like it would back in the states.

Just realized that I can cut down about 50% of the materials I have to redo because I can adapt a lot of my planned camp activities to take place outside. *phew*

I just hope it doesn't rain because those kids are going outside anyway.

Not for long, I'm sure. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: Also, the disappearance of 2.0 and the fact that my post count got slashed by nearly a half says a lot for how much I complain. :lipsrsealed: :lipsrsealed: :lipsrsealed: I practically live in that thread.

Returned to an empty office after lunch. Then everyone entered bearing treats!! Apparently there was some meeting and a lot of leftover fruit and snackage.

Free bananas, watermelon, and plums  ;D And some junky cookies and crackers too.

Praise #based fruit.

Cookies are poison. Enjoy your fruit!

I had some poison first  :angel: but I balanced it out with some fruit.

PE teacher: [yirj teacher], watermelon.
Me: 네, watermelon.
PE teacher: Now.

Yay.  Classes keep getting canceled because students are doing a "special computer class".  That's 3 fewer garbage end of the semester lessons I have to administer.   ;D

A student called me '쌤' today in class. I've been weirdly hoping for that since the beginning of the semester.  8)

Had a chat with my coT about summer camp supplies; everything on the list is approved by the principal! ^^

Then she told me she had a discussion with the principal about how winter camp will be "impossible" without a budget and that she would refuse to do winter camp without one.  :shocked: Dayummm.

She's worried camp will be boring if we can't buy materials. I don't agree that no budget renders camp impossible, but money definitely spruces things up (and all the better if not out of my pocket, hah). And some of the supplies we're getting for the upcoming camp are things we can use throughout the school year during regular classes too (cause English class has no budget though camp was thrown a bone). Getting a few sets of JENGA!  ;D Which will also be beneficial for my travel schools!

Today's lifehack, to increase your health and decrease your spending.

If you want to eat chicken, but don't have an oven, and don't want the crippling guilt of going to a restaurant for fried chicken, forcing you to a) pay money and b) feel terrible for eating so many calories just because you had a chicken craving, you can STEAM YOUR CHICKEN!

It's great. Buy a chicken (on sale) and then take it home and cut it into small pieces. Then, you can steam it and eat it with salt.

I do a lot of stir fry (with minimal oil).

My Elementary students are at a youth centre 'camping' trip. I was told I could go to the evening candle ceremony if I wanted.

I  just got back and it was a blast! A big bonfire and some fireworks, the kids showed off some talents, then everyone (parents/teachers/students)  got candles and  stood around the fire singing and taking pictures. Afterwards  we all got to play with sparklers.  :smiley:

Oh,  there were boys from Sung ui High School Soccer team  staying at the youth centre on a different floor. Don't know if anyone on this site teaches there, but I thought I'd mention it.

My morning class was cancelled, so I have a totally free morning! ;D I'm going to use this extra time to make some materials. That means that right now I am colouring! ;D ;D Whoop! Happy Friday!
