I found out I will be getting paid overtime for the camp I did last week and this week!  ;D
I was worried because payment previously hadn't been mentioned.

Though the conversation went like this:

CT: Sign here.
Me: Why
CT: *laughter*
Me: ..what is it
CT: *explains how I will get paid overtime*
Me: Oh.  Can I sign anywhere?
CT: Yes
Me: *signs top of paper*
CT: *Laughter* Sign on the line! *points*

Sigh.  That overtime tho.

2 of my 3 classes today were canceled/rescheduled. My one remaining class was a simple intro to the new vocabulary. I happy because this means my poor sore throat (thanks weather/cough) can rest up for my kindergarten class.

We were playing a game in my 6th grade class involving rps to move to the next level. If you lose you have to find someone at your level to move on. One of my 6th grade girls was stuck at a level and she came over to me. So we begin a round of rps. For a good 30 seconds we were pulling the same thing which started the laughter and then for the next minute or so I beat her at EVERY round. It was so funny and frustrating that we burst into laughter and couldn't stop--kneeled over, holding our stomachs, gasping for air type laughter. Then everyone else in the class saw what was happening and burst into laughter as well. A great way to end the day.

One of the 6th grade boys kept throwing bits of eraser around class, while I was teaching. After a warning, I caught him doing it again and was waiting for the opportunity to use this punishment method; I told him to pick up a scrap piece of paper and stand at the back of the classroom. I then told him to throw the paper to the other opposite back corner of the classroom. He, along with my CT and the other students were visibly confused, but he threw it. I then told him to pick it up, bring it back to where he threw it from and throw it again... Rinse and repeat. Very soon, the class and even my CT started laughing at the ridiculous spectacle.

I went back to teaching and left him there to work on his aim, for the next 20min.

There are times when being a teacher is pretty fun.

This is me walking in to my class of low-level 1st years.  There's this boy that just has all the compliments, and he cracks me up.  Last week I was given the imaginary title of "Queen Elizabeth of Turkey" (???) and this week I'm "so simple beautiful, new fresh spring" and my male KET "is luxury" because he wore a suit for the parents' visiting day :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

I haven't taught Let's Go in years! I teach science, history, social studies, art history, math and even debate and economics. I am jacked to be at a high-level academy that is SPLIT into levels and since I've been teaching at this hagwon since '09 and prepare an hour a day (waaaaay more than the average teacher here) I teach only the highest level students. Teaching in SK can be hell but it can also be heaven. Photosynthesis, soil erosion, budgeting, Greek architecture, the water cycle, Aesop's fables and the geography of the U.S. southwest are the topics of lessons I've prepared around textbook material I'm teaching this week. I'm pumped! I never thought I'd be personally be so ENGAGED in teaching overseas when I left my newspaper journalism career for a "short jaunt" overseas that hasn't ended and doesn't seem poised to end any time soon.

Completely random but at my school we sometimes have student teachers who come and teach for a week or two and one of them actually pronounced it like that.

ST: Where can you go to fig up* your lost items?
S: Lost and found!
ST: Yaas, good job!
Me: (holding in laughter)

*This is how she actually pronounced "pick up." :huh:

Congrats!! I second nomadicmadda; let us know how the date goes! :-*

After what has seemed like an eternity of being told I am a crap teacher, my grade 5 public school teacher just told me that she never wants me to use the book again, because the students learn so much more in my "free zone" lessons (lessons they throw at me when I only have half a class or only teach two of the three classes etc....). Which is AWESOME because I can link it to the target language but am completely free to make my class as enjoyable for myself as I can (I mean enjoyable for the students of course). I have grasped a tiny bit of self esteem back into my little worn out hands...

Let's make odds and place bets on the thread she'll use.

1) Ranting/Venting Megathread
2) Raving/Happy Shit Megathread
3) A thread for pointless Friday Ramblings
4) Please talk some sense into me. I want to go home.

Pffft I meet guys off of Tinder and dating apps all the time.  That's how I've met most of my dates, actually.  Tinder here isn't used for hookups like it is in the west.  I've met a lot of people just looking for friends, to practice English, to get a serious girlfriend, or to have a local tour guide if they're a tourist in Korea.  The number of dudes on it using it for hookups alone have been pretty rare for me :huh:

Just meet somewhere public and during the daytime.  I usually do lunch or coffee and always offer to pay for my own meal.  I don't like guys feeling like they're buying my time, so I only let someone treat me/take me out for dinner/in the evening if I already like them and know them from at least one date before.  That's just personal preference though.

Need more details to make that call. 
Foreign or Korean? 
What social media app did OP meet him on?
[And we already know they're hanging at the beach for the day and doing dinner.]

Edit: I actually would love a thread for this, where there's a formula you pre-fill out on the above and then people make bets :laugh:  Guys and girls!
