I almost posted in the ranting thread about how cold it was in the teachers' room.  The lunch bell rang, and we went to the cafeteria.  The soup was hot and the heat was turned on.  One of the reasons I like my school.   :smiley:

There are some funny drawings on one of the bulletin boards at my main school. One of the kids drew cartoon versions of all the teachers & staff. Most (if not all?) seem to be based off existing cartoons, some of which are pretty accurate depictions! One teacher is Spongebob, another is Yoshi (with stubble?), and so on.

I turned out pretty cute! Though I'm not sure who I'm supposed to be. Some anime character, perhaps. One of the other younger teachers was depicted as angry which is a bit telling as it's the same teacher who has sternly chided the student on more than one occasion.  :laugh:

That would be interesting to see.  Could you take a pic and post it?

^I'll see about that! I can blot out the names on my laptop at home but I don't have a way to do it on my phone.

I brought in some skittles to share with my main office in honor of Halloween. One teacher jokingly tried to convince me it was a knockoff brand and that Korea made the original (Beatles). I asked him when it was made-- he claimed the 15th century  :laugh: :laugh: What a goof

Was asked to administer a speaking test for my middle school kids at one my more rural schools. The KET apparently had done speaking tests before but had no real rubric or outline on what the kids should be able to say. I got to make the new rubric and grading scale for it and she's adopted it to all her other classes. Feels good.

I caught a cold with the weather change (despite taking a vitamin c tab everyday), and while that sucks, I have decided to go get samgyetang for dinner tonight. I'm already looking forward to it.

I know how my fellow foreigners love their mayo so here's something quick, easy, and freaking delicious:

Marinate some chicken breasts in italian dressing + mayo. I only did about an hour but they came out so tender and flavorful. Brought some to top my salad for lunch today. Very excited about it.

Drooling already. Why do you do this? You and Halo and her freaking samgyetang which I also love. I hate you both. I'm checking the school's lunch menu now.

Mayo chicken breast sounds amazing. Because mayo is amazing.

Yesterday I had lemon pepper chicken breasts with a spinach salad and it was great.

Also my school just got a cafeteria and I want to die. I've never eaten in a school cafeteria here before. It's miserable. No control over how much food you get. Long lines of screaming children. Tiny little baby stools to sit on. My lunchtime went from being a time for eating food and relaxing and occasionally talking to people, to now being a time to wait in line for 15 minutes [it's not just me, all teachers have to wait] to devouring my lunch and getting out as fast as possible.

But today is sunny so this can go in the happy thread.

Dang that's unfortunate lol. I memorized the Korean words for "just give me a little bit please", and teachers get to cut in line at my school. But the baby stools are a problem in general. I'll call it motivation to lose weight!

Got back to my main school and two students burst open the doors and yelled "HELLO [YIRJ]!!"  :laugh: Quite the welcome back.

Apparently it's winter cleaning time? Everyone cleaned/organized their desks today and some of the jokers came over and made a point of comparing my (currently messy) desk to their sparkling ones. Thankfully, nobody tried to clean my desk for me. It's mainly just lots of paper that I haven't yet taken time to sort through. Gonna save the bulk of it for an art project for winter camp anyway ^^ I wanna make some papier mache masks.

Nice to feel motivated to tidy up the desk! Looks much better already though I'm not yet finished

Last week, I was told that we wouldn't have any class today because of the talent show. I rock up, with some books and my little midi keyboard to pass the time. My CT announces that we have 4 of the 5 classes today... Gah!

Mercifully, she suggests we put a movie on for them.

Classes cancelled, and I'm wearing socks with weed leaves on them because Koreans don't know what weed leaves look like.

Apparently winter cleaning also entails disposing of random snacks onto my desk.

One is a sack of individually wrapped dark chocolates-- pretty good stuff, so I'm not complaining  :laugh:
