I'm usually not one to burn bridges but I just torched one and feel pretty good about it  :laugh:

Everyone was weirdly friendly today. Like out-of-the-way friendly.

Makes me feel like there's a plot afoot. I'm hoping to hear about it by tomorrow.

Possibly a ploy.  Perchance you're a pawn?

Sounds like there's a surprise contract cancellation coming down the pike.  :sad:

I have been told that I'm not being renewed because I am shit, and another friend in my city said that City Hall said there wasn't a budget for her at her school and her school is bigger than mine.

Goodbye, Korea. Hello, Indonesia.

Pfft.

More like someone higher up is about to ask me for a "favor" that I won't be happy about but that I'll still feel pressured to accept because relationships are important. Given the time of year, it'll probably be related to camp. xD It was last year.  >:(

Are you serious? I'm so sorry to hear that. Do you already have a prospect in Indonesia (other than the girl, lol)?

Your coT honestly sounded like she had it in for you, tbh.

Quite a bit of snow in Chungnam last night, surprised that it had already turned into slippery ice on the roads.  So left at 7:10 today.  Most other teachers walked to school because it was too dangerous to drive. Made driving nice and fun.  Most students still hadn't arrived by 10 o'clock.

Chinguetti: Gonna phone her tonight. She wants me to come and work there. I do too. I'd have to start planning my escape. I have 10 000$ in pension money ready to be released so I would take that and go anyway, look for propects there. I could live on that for a long ass time. 

DMZ: Goes to the end of February. Still got 4 months of paychecks, we all good. haha

Sorry to hear this, man. They're not prepared to transfer you? Job security really is at an all-time low.

I didn't realize Indo was an ESL contender these days. Then again, I haven't been keeping score. Will be an exciting time for you, I'm sure.

Thanks. I don't think I'd get a transfer. I think I'm done here. Every 5 years my life gets turned upside down by some thing or another. 10, 13, 19, 23, 27 and now 32. The cycle of my life.

The money won't be as good there, but that's not why I'm going. haha. A new adventure and an old love interest.

My mom is going to kill me, lol.

Sounds like a good life move then. And if things don't shape up in Indo, there are plenty of options out there (professionally and romantically;p).

You only have one mom though, break the news gently :laugh:

I'll pop in once in a while. A lot of pigs in here though, I'll need to get around the Islamic Firewall.

That's good at least. Hopefully this ends up being a NET positive for you if things work out in Indonesia.  :cheesy:

And don't forget that you have just acquired a wonderful new power! The freedom to say whatever you want to your co-workers!  Be like yirj17 and burn all the bridges!

So elementary schools in Gunpo are now being cut?  That's a surprise.  Good luck CO2 with your next step.  I'm living in Gunpo still, but work in Uiwang.  I'm likely getting out of here anyways as I need a change.  Not sure if my school will have funding next year.
