Today's lunch was a comical display of carbs:

Rice
Noodles
Potato soup

It was the breaking point I needed. Starting October, I'm no longer subjecting myself to this garbage. Gonna go shopping for a lunchbox after school today.  8)

How would a British person describe a drink they liked without using "delicious"

'That was ace'
'Just what the doctor ordered'
'That hit the spot'
'Hmmm, that had subtle ovetones of birch and mulberry whilst stilling maintaining a fresh palate for myself'

Not bad
It's alright

Twice this week there have been pigeons walking down the school hallways.
I'm just sitting at my desk, minding my own business when I happen to look out the door into the hallway only to see a pigeon staring directly at me.  So I chased it away.

Three day?

It's a four day weekend for public schools, no?

Hangeul Day is on a Sunday so it doesn't count at my school, BUT the 10th of October is the school's birthday so I get 2 three day weekends!  :smiley:

It's been a nice, relatively boring sports day. I did my usual of holding the finish line like a champ for races.

Now, I have an insufferable choice. Leave early to go to hwesik or wait until the normal time and then go home.

I want to have my cake AND eat it.

Why is the world so cruel.

Sometimes hwesik lasts much later than your normal leaving time would be. I guess it depends on if you enjoy hwesik at all.

As the single best thing to happen to me this week;

My CT asked if I was going. Nope.
She told me to go home (she's older than my head CT).


YESSSSSSS!

My parents are visiting so I'm using a lot more Korean than I usually would (restaurants, shops and the hotel).

Weirdly, I've found that older Koreans have been able to understand me a lot more than young people.  Thinking about it, that might be true of my general Korean speaking experience here. 

Seems weird!

I have noticed that too. Perhaps they are more patient, and more interested in understanding you. 

Also, the fact that you are taking your parents out means that you are are being a good child, and deserve a higher degree of respect.

I feel like older Koreans are more likely to initiate small talk, whereas younger Koreans tend to be glued to their phones. For some reason ajummas like chatting at/with me at bus stops/terminals. Even if there's other people there, I seem to get selected as "approachable" I guess.

Sometimes even after I've explained I don't speak much Korean, I'm a foreigner, etc. they still like trying to chat with or at me. I think a higher percentage try and talk to me more either out of curiosity or just because old people like to chat it up.

Sitting here feeling bad.  My main coT retired at the end of last semester and was not replaced.  Instead, the other coTs are working together to cover her duties.

Anyway, midterms are next week and I did not create a review lesson.  Part of me knows I should have realized this, but with the school festival last week, the Free Semester for the first graders that requires camp-like lessons and activities, and the three day weekend, I just didn't think of it.  My former CoT always reminded me of these things.  I miss her.

Interesting take on peanut butter and jelly today at lunch: there was no peanut butter.  And the bread was toasted.  So basically a toasted grape jelly sandwich.

That sounds pretty good, minus the jelly. Jelly is basically just sugar.

Toasted white bread with nothing on it is also just sugar and not good at all...
