I actually look forward to camp. I love/hate the planning part of it but I like getting to just do fun classes with the kids. So glad I don't get stuck doing rote grammar and that my school lets me do whatever I want for it.

Since all my classes got moved to the afternoon, I've just been leisurely compiling reference images for the art projects I'm planning for winter camp  :azn:

I am so glad I have no camp.

Today I have my little toasty seat warmer and I'm pretty sure my bf and I are going to the new One Piece cafe tonight. Though I am a little worried some of my students will be there.

First, SO FREAKING JEALOUS!!! NO CAMP?! You are living the dream. :sad:

Second, what is this One Piece cafe?? Is it just a new cafe or is there something more??
I actually also liked the actual camp week (depending on the students and grades), but the camp planning was such a pain. However, even though, I did enjoy the fun camps, I would still take no camp over it.

As for the One Piece cafe, it is another cafe, but not JUST a cafe. Haha. It's based on the Japanese cafe, so it's got the characters and themed drinks and food and a little store. It's put on by the official Korean One Piece distributor.

Oh yeah, me too. It's been my favorite since I was a freshman in high school and I have gotten my bf relatively into it. He even went to see the OP Gold movie last weekend, haha. I will update tomorrow!

Fun fact: I only started watching One Piece two years ago, and it was my boyfriend who made me start it. I was on a big anime kick and was binge-watching a series a week (normal one-season anime) but he wouldn't watch any with me. So I whined until he chose one he'd want to watch with me and he chose One Piece. I thought it was lame but agreed because I wanted him to watch something with me.

Eventually he got annoyed with how often I wanted to watch it lmao. We were almost caught up before I came to Korea, and we watch an episode together while skyping every once in a while, but we're a couple months behind now.

I used to watch that series with my brother but stopped watching it for a while, then when I tried to pick it back up again I found out I was something like 400 episodes behind.

So I gave up. xP

I literally wanted to watch it so much I pissed him off, that's the only way I caught up lmao

I used to always watch Case Closed with my brother while eating food from our favorite Mexican place. Oh, how I miss the days when my brother liked me and wasn't a lame MAN who never invites me anywhere  :cry: :cry: :cry:

I applied for my F-6 visa on August 31 with my E-2 set to expire on September 30. I expected it might take a month at most (based on what I read on this forum :lipsrsealed:), but here I am nearly three months later and the sucker still hasn't come through and apparently my school is having trouble paying my pension contributions. Whenever I call immigration they can't say much but that the process sometimes takes up to 6 months! This is nuts. I was told I shouldn't leave the country until it comes through, as well. Feeling a bit in limbo and worried about being able to claim those pension contributions later once the visa does finally come through. :sad:

My wife just got word from immigration yesterday that my F-6 visa has finally come through, but for some reason they say I can't pick it up until the 28th. Anyway, it's nearly four months later, but it's finally here!

Congrats! You now have that F-6 swagger.  Oh what can I do now?  Become a Korean pilot, or get a job in the local convenience store?  All those options!  ;D

No wait, are you talking to yourself?

Who else would I be talking to?

I'm happy for the visa less for the employment opportunities and more for the fact that I don't have to have weird conversations with my school anymore about why they're having trouble depositing my monthly pension payments. (But I'd like to think this swagger would at least get me a call back from Asiana :wink:)

I am caught up on the manga, but I am sooooo behind on the anime. And now its so daunting with how many there are.

I am just so genuinely shocked right now. I was alerted about work I had to do waaaaaay in advance! My school puts out an English essay magazine every year full of essays the students write. Last year, I was told a week in advance that I would have to go over these essays correcting them- maybe 150 or so. The teacher said she didn't expect them to take long because she thought they were pretty good. They weren't. I took them home with me every night and worked on them and I still didn't finish in time.

Fast forward to this year. Today she gave me a giant stack of essays again, but told me that they weren't due until March!! Hallelujah.

I think this qualifies as both a vent for that thread and could be here in the raving happy thread too.

 All year there has been issues with the seating arrangement in classes.  We had to swap out the standard desks from trapezoid shaped tables that will seat two kids on one side. Two tables together to fit 4 kids.  I try 4 different arrangements to make the six teams fit in the room, sit comfortably and not have their back to the front of the class - it was surprisingly tricky. A hexagon, a butterfly, different angles etc etc.  I was moving the tables around again last night hoping to fit in a horse shoe arrangement, but because of the size of 5th grade it just doesn't fit! BAH!  Then it strikes me - the way to set the tables that solves all the problems.  A simple L shape.  WHY didn't I think of this earlier??? I HAVE ONE WEEK OF CLASSES LEFT and I think of this NOW?!?!?!  I'm both happy and really peeved at myself because I should've seen this earlier and now it's almost too late.  Almost, but not quite.  I am actually pretty pleased with myself as well.  What's the word for this feeling I'm having?

^there's probably a word in a different language if not in English.

Middle grade 2 students are my favorite. They asked if I was going on next week's field trip (I'm not, but it was nice they wanted to know if I was going). They've also invited me to a cooking class before.

For the Christmas lesson I opened by telling them "No books today!" All of the kids went "Yay!!!" and one kid was so enthused he threw his book on the floor and his hands up in the air.

Me:  :shocked:
All the students stare at him.
Student: ...Just kidding!!
