We're teaching Don't do That so my co-teacher tried to find a song. This came through the speakers. She made it about 1:30 into the video before she closed it. hehehe

I posted this in OinK but what the hell, y'all are my real wayg family. This happened the day after the annoying Ajeossi tried to follow me home.

Ajeossi: Foreigner!
Me: Yes?
Ajeossi: Foreigner!
Me: *sighs* Yes, that's me.
Ajeossi: I want to know............... I want to know...........
Me: What do you want to know?
Ajeossi: I want to know what love is!
Me: (Internally) WTH is going on? hahaha
Ajeossi: You look like Foreigner!
Me: Yeah, I'm from Canada.
Ajeossi: No, no. Singer! From Foreigner. You look like him.
Cue the light bulb above my head going off.

Also, a lot more screaming and running away.

Ran into a gaggle of ajumma aged ladies at the bus stop today.  Their language sounded like Mandarin?  They were clearly asking me what time their bus was going to leave but I wasn't entirely sure when (I only had a guess, as I don't take that bus) though I was pretty certain as to where they were going. 

No common language, but held up my fingers with my best guess, and tried to convey that I wasn't exactly sure.  Somehow they got there in the first place so I can only assume they'll return from whence they came in some fashion.

Had a sore throat the last couple of days so came into work expecting a battle to keep kids quiet and on track, but everyone, CTs too but especially the kids, have been beyond thoughtful and accommodating. Watching them police each other when the chingus get out of line and too loud must be one of the best sights in the classroom  :cheesy:

Then this afternoon, with my favorite high-level second grade class got a great warm-up convo banter going, then slid into quiet and attentive when I was giving instructions and then fun, involved and proactive again when it came time to brainstorm and be creative. Like, wow, what a class.

Tomorrow the other shoe's gonna drop, I can feel it.  :laugh:

I don't know why, but I have always loved the term "from whence they came."

It's pretty good, but shouldn't it be "wherce" since it refers to a place and not a time? I would think "whence" would be a time.

I can't tell if you're just joking or not, but according to the Oxford Dictionary whence means, "from which; from where."


I asked my coteacher if she had any travel recommendations for the May break (I'm lazy and haven't made plans yet), and she mentioned a city then went off on a huge tangent/rant about how a man from there was president in the 80s and killed lots of people, and how he's still alive today and is rich. I have no idea whether that city is worth travelling to and it seems like she's completely forgotten that my question was about travel.

 She talks incessantly and it's gotten to the point where I'm almost afraid to ask her anything, because she'll talk for 10 minutes about something completely unrelated.

"Whence" meaning a place, source, cause.  It's like "wherefore".  It doesn't sound like it means what it actually means.

One of the teachers asked me what I thought of their school's new English teacher.  I mean, we haven't worked together long, so I just said that my coT was nice and helpful during class. 

Then I clued in on the look on the teacher's face, "Ohhh.  Why, what do you think?"

Naturally at that precise moment, my coT pops up so I don't get a direct answer but I feel like the facial expression and hesitation of the teacher's face was enough info.   :shocked:

Makes me wonder what kinda drama might be happening at this school.  Hah.  I'm sure they miss the old KET, as do I.  I don't [yet] have anything against the new KET though.

Things might be getting juicy over this way, too. I have no idea, nor actually care what is going on, but things seem a bit out of the norm. I usually just sit back and let the others handle the gossip and headbutting.

I just burped and got a good whiff of lunch from it and I don't like that. It's basically like gaseous vomit.

That happened to me a couple of weeks ago after I ate at a new burger place. I was asked why it smelled like a burger in the living room, and I was like..ummm, my bad, but you have to admit it is pretty weird that it smells just like the burger. :laugh: :-[ :laugh:

Thinking about going to Vietnam for Chuseok.  Never been and it's on my bucket list.  Love the cuisine though, so I'm already raring to hit up some fine street food.

Vietnam is great, you should definitely go! And the street food is so yummy.
