Zombies are real.  They're in my morning and after-lunch 5th period classes.

Ghosts too. I tried speaking to my students today and they couldn't see or hear me. I am beginning to believe I am truly just an apparition. 

Can anyone hear me?  Am i real?

If you're a ghost can I have your stuff? I'll be in town tonight and able to pick it up ;)

Take it, take it all.  Keep the dust off my ukulele in remembrance of my life.

I've already got a uke but I'll take the dust to remember you by. I'll spread some of the remembrance dust around your old apartment because I know you wanted to stay there forever :)

Alright friends -- who's going out on a limb and requesting a day off/unpaid for May 2nd?

They're gonna ask about renewals soon.  I'm contemplating doing another year.  Pretty on the fence about it though.  Sure would be nice to have that extra year's worth of savings though.  Hmm. 

I'm annoyed they ask for November renewals at the same time as August renewals.  Much less time to think on it.

I walked in to see a brand new, nice looking ceramic mug with a coaster on my desk. No notes, no news, no nothing. I have no idea where it came from or why I got it, but some other teachers did as well. Hmm.

Also, I'm debating about the unpaid/sick leave on Tuesday and Thursday. My school isn't giving us the sandwich day, and I'm also not sure about the Labor Day on May 1st.

If you're public school, the MOE just sent out an email stating that it's mandatory that we are not to show up to work on May 1st.

Seems like it was a slow day in Waygook World.

To continue an expired topic, I bet the Szechuan sauce wasn't all that good and that IF McD's decides/is planning on bringing it back for the Mulan live-action film (per R&M's begging) I bet it won't be as good as everyone remembers.

Don't mind me, just bustin' ballz my way outta here for the day.

I'm a weird in between. I'm a private (sort of) high school, but not international.

I know that feeling.

Even though I'm not particularly enjoying my job these days, I'm glad I renewed.  I'm 99% that if I had gone back home I would have regretted it and wished I was back here.

Good luck with your decision; it's sometimes a really tough one  :sad:

I did.

Some of my Tuesday morning students found out that I have 2 schools on Tuesdays. Their first question was what other school. Their second questions was "(school 2's name) students ugly?"

Their faces were so serious as they asked too. Like they were concerned about being my prettier Tuesday school...

There... is actually someone cleaning the windows here. I don't think I have ever seen that before.

I watched a cat take a shit that I would've thought came from a dog had I not witnessed it. It was impressive. But the dirty ****** didn't even bother to cover it with sand like any decent cat would.

Animals, these days.

His plan is to blame the dog.

Typical cat.
