No idea how to watch the Academy Awards right now when I'm in China...my dad is having to tell me what's going on right now. Life feels a little empty now...

And now for the oscar award-winning film Suicide Squad
:laugh: :P :laugh: :P :laugh: :P


This is pretty much the reason why I watch the Oscars. There's just no telling what will happen, haha

I watched The Red Pill (2016 documentary) last night and it was really good!  So interesting.

Anyone else see it?

I just made an origami whale. That totes amused me.

Now I'm sticking it on a random teacher's desk. I want to see how long it takes before it gets tossed, but I'm hoping for a big investigation before then.

Too lazy to find rant thread. So officially I am supposed to be on vacation today (last day of renewal vacation). I haven't been to sleep because I wasn't planning on being here till Thursday and when I go on vacation my body switches to night owl mode aka sleep during the day up all night kinda thing. Get a call yesterday, where am I? I am like.... I am on vacation.... that thing the vice principal signed off on.... So now I am exhausted, tired, cranky, hot/cold, and my coteacher hasn't even shown up yet.

WTF. I coulda been sleeping

On another note. Found a decent Uno app. Better than nothing. I ran out of netflix shows to watch.

Wait, so did they cut short your vacation? If it was signed off on, why did you go in?

Because in all honesty, I just don't even want to go there. I have a decent relationship with my school, and I would like to re-sign next year too. So every little point counts.

I'm happy that deskwarming will end and I'll be back into a routine.  :smiley:

Also, this year I will  teach the 3rd graders at my middle school.  I've taught them since they were 1st graders, so no problem there. 

On a different note, it's supposed to rain tomorrow.  Maybe if March comes in like a lion, it'll go out like a lamb.  I want an early spring.

Why didn't you just remind them you are on vacation and say you are in a different city? (Not meant to sound like an attack. I'm pretty good at lying, which I know is not necessarily a good trait, but sometimes it comes in handy.)

Congrats! What's your plan after may?

I have to say I'd love to quit my job for a few months and just travel around but I don't wanna start at the bottom again. I feel that I've got a good couple schools so I'd be sacrificing  a good gig for what would basically just be a long vacation where I spend all my money.  :cry:

Comeplety unrelated but I think it's a crime that no one's snatched up that kakao muzi doll that someone is selling in the buy/sell section. I mean where else could you even find a thing like that in Korea??!!  :P

i am in a building by myself. I have walked around the school 5 times, met the new vice principal and one teacher, played badminton in the gym....

So the school called you asking where you are but no one is even in your office?!  That's annoying!!

Will they give you back the vacation day?

Here's a movie recommendation.



Also, everyone see Hacksaw Ridge. Great film.

Hey, best of luck! If all goes well, I will be starting grad school this May (MA in Tesol) here in Daegu. Hopefully I can juggle this with my 3 new schools, Bball league, and a wedding!  :huh: :cry:

Oh, and of course all of my pointless Waygook posting.  :azn:

Endured a 13 hour flight filled with a near nonstop wailing baby 2 rows away.



Then got to port and en route got a text alert informing me that all ferries are canceled today. Whoops. Naught to do but try again tomorrow...

On the bright side, Westworld was on the plane's entertainment selection so I tried it out and got hooked from episode one. And I don't mind bumming around on the mainland today though Idk how my school will feel. Prob woulda been wiser to return a day sooner but one can't predict the weather months in advance.
