Getting my license in Korea was super easy (taking all the actual tests) and now riding a motorcycle around is SICK

Wouldn't drive a car in Korea (and that's with the added protection of being surrounded by metal and crumple zones), can't imagine riding motorbike here (where you are the crumple zone) - Koreans drive like morons, saw two near collisions yesterday (would have been instant death if they collided), morons overtaking on blind corners and rises.

You see?  That is what happens.  The extra oxygen makes me light-headed.

Couldn't agree with you more here. Coming from the Pacific Northwest this environment is a complete 180 for me!  :cry:
Same! The last rain, I just went to an open air cafe and just chilled with a latte, a blanket, and watched the rain.

Two classes taken over by teachers who need the extra time to catch those students up on mid-term material, two other classes watching a movie, and the others are self-studying.

At this rate I'll have ALL of next semester's materials finished and ready to go.

I also got the Baskin Robbins Ironman and Captain America headphones yesterday. Going to put them on my desk to see if any of my boys notice and say anything about them.

There's a very sweet 5th grader who is a little slow but he tries his best and today I could really tell that his hard work is paying off. He's improved so much and was doing the group activity without any help. He even volunteered for a role play! I was so happy I felt like my heart might explode.

They have headphones? I thought it was just the ice cream!

Hahaha!  Simple pleasures.  I was amazed at how much extra energy and clear-headed I was yesterday, just by there being no dust.  I couldn't imagine living in China for that reason.  It would limit everything.
Yeah, I almost ended up outside of Beijing a few years ago for m first overseas job, and I am so glad it didn't work out. That dust is an everything killer.

It's part of a limited promotion for the new Avengers film. It started yesterday and I THINK it's supposed to continue until supplies are exhausted?

You're supposed to buy some ice cream (a quart or higher, or basically the equivalent of spending 13500 won or higher) and then you have the option of purchasing one of the headphones for an additional 3000 won. You can take a look at the image I attached.

Oh that's awesome! Thanks for the heads up. I'll have to check it out. I used to have a pair of One Piece headphones I used at school that some of my students loved and were super excited when they saw them.

It rained EVERYWHERE except Seoul!  :cry: I saw rain on the forecast at 20 percent, then it was just gloomy and DUUUUUUUSSSTYYY. On a positive note, it looks like We should get rain on Saturday!!!  ;D

Maybe it depended on what part of Seoul, because I was in a cafe at Hapjeong. Then again, it was nearly two weeks ago.

I REALLY misinterpreted/couldn't remember the schedule tomorrow. Usually I teach periods 2-4 then have lunch and have one more after lunch. I thought tat I had 5 classes tomorrow so I went to clarify with my CoT and she said, "You only teach classes 5 and 6." (The ones after lunch)

I have no classes from 8:40 until 1:10. Hells yeah! :afro: :afro:

Yeah, it did a couple of weeks ago, but I was referring to yesterday. Hopefully there will be some in the coming forecast!  :wink:

Oh! Haha, then yeah, you're right. I didn't even know it rained yesterday and that I was missing out! Bummer. Oh well, yesterday was still a good day.

I went and saw Civil War and before I left for it right after school, a few students that know I love comic book stuff ran up showing off their movie tickets and we chatted about it a little. Its always fun being able to talk to them about mutual interests!

I keep on putting off my training for my half marathon this summer due to my laziness. Yet with the weather being so terrible as it is, it doesn't help either. With more rain and clearer air I think that I may start getting back on track for my training  :afro: :afro: 8) 8).

No problem, my students are the only reason why I got the Ironman headphones (I only cared about Captain America xP).

At my travel school today, my kids were motivated and we had fun together. My Grade 6 boy (who last week refused to speak for about 10 mins) actually liked the games that I brought. We laughed together and it really just brightened my whole outlook  ;D ;D

Whenever my students hear me dropping a Korean word or phrase (practicing with coworkers), they go "Wo~w!!" and act super impressed even though all I'm saying is simple stuff  :laugh: Makes me laugh every time

Yeah, its been a little the same for me, but cycling. I actually went out last Saturday when the dust was at 200 or so and had to buy a mask halfway through my ride.

My school changed my schedule now I don't teach any classes on Mondays and enjoy a nice easy day to the start of the week.

So jealous. Last 3 years I had only 2-3 classes on Monday. I dread the work week so much less when I can ease into it. Starting in March it was changed to 5 classes spread out all day.

But I digress. IDK why but someone brought PB sandwiches and fruit into the office this morning, which is great because I didnt have time to eat breakfast. Then my ct tells me I dont have to come 1st or 2nd period because shes giving a chapter test. So free breakfast and only 2 classes are a great way to finish the week. But actually I'm a little bummed about killing time in the office. My Thursday-Friday school is awesome and I like teaching these kids.
