Today & tomorrow there will be no classes after lunch because of the heat and a problem with my school's air con.  I can use the extra planning time.

LOL, the entire staff at my school is terrified of paper cutters. (I don't know why, since they all keep razor-shark box cutter knives in their pockets, as do all of the students.) I bought one on Gmarket, and it freaks them out to have it in the teacher's office so it lives in my classroom.  :laugh:

So glad to be back to school - now life will be fun again! ;D

First day back at work and I don't have to teach classes today. This is how all first days back at work coming from vacation on a Monday should be. c:

Agreed! I don't have classes until Wednesday. And then if all is the same, no classes Thurs. or Friday due to a field trip. So I can actually prep lessons in a non-frantic manner  :cheesy: at least for a while...

Also super excited for any down time or travel cause I have a shiny new 3DS now! Got both N64 Zelda remakes and A Link Between Worlds (which I'm stoked for because A Link to the Past is my favorite Zelda game!). Kinda went a little nuts getting games but figured it'd be much easier while visiting home.

Double agreed. In any case, first day back, only to find the bathrooms all ripped up and a Goddamn payloader driving around the hallways. I knew the bathrooms were being renovated (the staff and kids actually voted on the designs before vacation, which is pretty cool) but I thought they'd be done by now. Asked the secretaries when the first day of class was and they said Wednesday so I just left. Kinda wish someone had told me though.

Seems like my school has a lot of cash kicking around these days. First the nurse's office gets rebuilt and doubled in size and now this. Hope they aren't blowing the NET budget.

Halfway through my final contract!!! *happy dance* Just a little over six months left, but it's only about four and a half months to the end of the semester and the end of camp, and then it's a month and a half of vacation and deskwarming (I'll just be having coffee with one of the other teachers or reading the entire time) HALLELUJAH!!!

위어드. Sounds exactly like my school except we tore up our parking lot and replaced some of the classrooms door and window frames and opted to tear up the bathrooms during an extended winter vacation. Our principal held a vote among staff members as to whether they would prefer a longer winter/shorter summer vacation or vice versa for the bathroom repairs. Most everyone voted for a longer summer vacation but the principal went ahead with winter anyway :lipsrsealed: It's not just foreign teachers who have to change vacation plans based on capricious immutable dictums from above. They finished the paving in time for second semester, but the construction workers' discarded cigarette butts can still be spotted hither and thither in various corners of the school grounds. I sure hope that once they do get around to the bathroom repairs, all the shit smeared on the stall walls will be gone at last. Does anybody else's school have shit-smeared bathroom stalls? What drives such behavior? I'm talking multiple stalls on multiple floors that hasn't been washed off for weeeeks. I wouldn't blame the cleaning lady if she decided that's where she draws the line.

*Sorry this was neither raving nor happy, but it wasn't really ranting either. More of an aside. I'll try to stick to the forum topic better in the future~

It's not just crusted on stall walls at my school, but it's down the front face of the actual toilets...like seriously sick students had violent bowels and weren't able to get their pants off and sit down in time before the eruption.

Why the school district isn't required to hire professionals to clean the schools seems criminal.

Our school employs one elderly lady to "clean" the entire school, which explains why our school is so filthy.  Her cleaning supplies, ability, etc. are seriously lacking.

She will use the same equipment to "clean" the urinals and then clean the sink, rather than clean the sink first and then the urinal.

Bottom line, whether you can see it or not with the naked eye, it's best to assume that every school is teaming with filth and germs.

Korea, sparkling ;)

Went to Lotte Mart, yesterday, and amidst the soul crushing Lotte mart tunes, reverberating around the supermarket, I heard something strange. I walked past the bakery and the baker, was listening to Slipknot!
It was so refreshing to see this guy lightly bobbing his head, rolling the dough and listening to his Slipknot.

Also super excited for any down time or travel cause I have a shiny new 3DS now! Got both N64 Zelda remakes and A Link Between Worlds (which I'm stoked for because A Link to the Past is my favorite Zelda game!). Kinda went a little nuts getting games but figured it'd be much easier while visiting home.
Get the Fire Emblem games! You won't regret it.

I've heard good things! Got so many games on my to play list. And I just started one on my computer-- I am Setsuna. And I am digging it!  ;D Probably not the best idea to start new games when the semester is just kicking off, hahahah but oh well

Sounds awesome!  I recently got a 3DS too; I love it.  Just finished New Super Mario Bros 2 and moving on to Ocarina next  :wink:

I want to get an old NES. Should have bought one while I was back in the States.

DID YOU KNOW... There will soon be a new mini NES with built in games? http://www.theverge.com/2016/7/14/12187296/nintendo-nes-classic-edition-announced-price-games

And it's cheaper than getting a used NES from most places (though I don't think you can play old cartridges on the new mini).

I'm just gonna be sitting here waiting for a new mini SNES  ;D
