Yesterday the sky was really clear and blue in the town where my travel school is. My students were all pointing it out like it was some kind of rare phenomenon (which I guess in Korea it is). One of the first things I started missing when I moved here was the clear blue African sky I had taken for granted for so long. It's kinda sad. I think when I go home I will really make a point of appreciating the whole lying on the grass looking up at blue skies and fluffy clouds thing.

I noticed that twice this past week. Actual blue skies. Mentioned it to my wife and got in trouble for complaining about the grey skies cos that's China's fault. Seriously.


Yikes.  Small things like this make me glad I'm out in the boonies where the sky is more likely to be blue than grey.

Last night the air quality rating was only 42 in my area! We were actually in the green! It's the first time I think I've ever seen that o.o

I have the munchies something fierce today but I don't have anything to snack on.

And I still haven't gotten my turkey sandwich.

Other day at the bus stop, the old lady struck again. 

Started talking at me so I nodded along politely, no idea what she was going on about this time.   

She then approached and sat right in front of me.   :shocked:  Handed me a folded piece of paper.  Was pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn't chicken scratch cursive and just the date of the election so it was easy to decipher.  Ah

Then I think she started rambling about how difficult it is for her to go vote because of how far it is from her home.  I think.   :undecided:

I keep a bag of nuts and/or dried fruit in my desk for those times :)

Never fails.  I happen to be the only one in the office when a random Korean happens by. 

I didn't catch what he said at first so I just went with "몰라요."  Which probably made no sense to his query as he then surmised I did not speak Korean. 

PLOT TWIST -- he spoke some English!  Got his objective sorted real quickly thereafter.

LOL, I never understand how other people "keep" snacks. How? How does it work? If there is something to eat in my vicinity, it gets eaten. There is no "keeping" anything with me  :-[

Went for a walk at Emart over lunch.  Saw an old guy wearing a hiking jacket under hospital pjs walking around like he owned the place, and another angry looking guy carrying a baseball bat coming in the opposite direction.

I didn't see shat happened after that.

Holy shit, some kid just smashed his face off the desk (grade 1 or 2 kid). Right above his eye was a inch gash, blood all over his face. He's screaming, the Korean after school teacher is dumbstruck. Nurse comes up and assesses, tries to pick him up. Nope.

CO2, teacher. Help!

I GOT THIS.

So there's me carrying a bloody child down 4 flights of stairs. People looking, kids going WHHHAAAAAA???

Kids kicking, he's screaming, but I got him. I didn't do 10 years of Boy Scouts to drop a kid down some stairs. I have resolve.

Get down there, drop him on the bed.

Feel like a god damn hero. Adrenaline man, ain't nothing like it.

See Camden pull THAT shit off.

Random children who aren't students have appeared around my school too. They're chilling beside me in the library right now... They don't look old enough for middle school but they're just hanging out at my elementary school... I don't like this... Friday afternoon checkers is being inturrupted cuz I don't want kids to watch me get my butt handed to me at a game...

Another group of students found my iPod, asked what it is, said "Ew, old" then ran off.
I don't care that it's old! What else will hold 160GB of music I listened to in high school and embarrassingly still listen to today!?
