Two of my boy students informed me that they're dieting.  When I asked why, they simply pointed at their guts.  They're both grade 3 middle schoolers so I wonder if they're anticipating meeting new girls once they get to high school.  Haha

Every time Waygook says "Fetching Preview" when I make a post, I get excited like the website thinks my post is very beautiful.  :laugh:

I jam so many fonts-sizes, colours, quotes, hyperlinks, and other formatting into my comments that I usually have to preview what I wrote just to check if it's even comprehensible. Oh, and sometimes I even check the preview to see if what I wrote makes sense.  :smiley:

Bingo. I type really fast and think off the cuff so it's always good to go back and think, "Oi vey, that needs to change." hahaha

I wish the little ones had lunch earlier than 1:30, because all they do in my class is whine "배고파~~~~~~."

My ears feel slightly strange lately.  Sort of as if the altitude has changed considerably and they need to pop.  Maybe some weird kind of sinus pressure?

I have nothing to do today. I hope you enjoy the 35 posts I've made today.

God bless you all.

I've only made two or three, but one of them is like 20 paragraphs long and full of math. Enjoy!

It's probably too early to tell, but it sounds like it might be an ear infection. I've learned over the years that lots of sleep is often helpful. Hope it clears up quickly!  :smiley:

It was the best I could do: I had very little time to cobble that comment together.

Has anyone mode or used a choose your own adventure game? I'm making one right now, and it's taking so long. Which makes sense given all the options. But whoooo.

I'm not sure how to use it in a big class, I'm just planning on using it in my after school class which has 2-4 people.

I haven't made one (though I'd love to) but there's a pretty great one already on waygook that I've used before.  The classes with kids who like video games loved it whereas some classes were "meh" about it. 

http://waygook.org/index.php?topic=83780.0.html

Check out the "Fantasy Adventure" by fwicksteed.  I modified the language a bit for my students but that was all.  It's one of my favorite things that I've found on waygook. 

EDIT:  the classes that loved it would beg to play it multiple times to try every path possible whereas the "meh" classes were satisfied after they successfully completed the adventure once.

I trusted I'd get over this by now, but it still really wears at me when I hear "waygook" this and "waygook" that, especially from Korean teachers talking between themselves. Like, of the few Korean words I know, you seriously think waygook isn't one of them?

The one I'm doing is "Can you survive the battle of Hogwarts." It's based on the Buzzfeed thing.

So when you did it for the whole class, how did they all do it together? Rock paper scissors for who got to choose? Or take turns?

A malbec! I think it had a horse on the label. My partner bought it for me and bc of some meds he's on for his psoriasis he didn't drink any so I am decently drunk and can't remember precisely
