Last week, I had my students write a little skit from dialog I provided them. I encouraged them to be creative and write down their lines so they don't remember. Came into class today and started handing back scripts, and it turns out the students are not sitting with the same people. Instead of everyone going back to their groups, my COT just says to give them a random script to perform.

WTF. That defeats the whole purpose of them working together last week to come up with lines.

Eating that cereal this morning instead of last night's leftover steak was a mistake. I'm so hungry that I feel like I could resort to cannibalism right now.

Why did I do it?  :cry:
PSA: What you are feeling is NOT hunger.  What you are feeling is sugar withdrawals.

Not semantics, but it is a physiological/chemical/??? difference with what is actually happening in your body.

True hunger takes weeks to kick in and it happens in your throat, not your stomach.

This is it. This is the most Pecan post ever made by Waygook.org user Pecan.

I'm so #blessed that I was able to see it.
Not sure what that even means, but thanks, I guess ;)

I can't even believe the schooling system here sometimes. Working at a high school, in charge of my own grades and all that. One student came up to me to try and change his failing grade... for all 6 semesters of his high school career. The previous teacher failed him because he never showed up to class, I failed him for 2 years because he never showed up to class. He brought his friend to talk to me to ask for passing grades. I tell him he has to do some work, like anyone else that fails. I start giving him his assignments, one small task for every semester, and he starts complaining that it's too hard and please teacher-ing me. HE THEN TRIES TO BRIBE ME.

"But teacher I have a lot of money..."

This kid is going places, really. No sarcasm.
Yeah, probably so.  :rolleyes: Makes me wonder if he will just get a classmate to do the assignments for him (probably).

Am I the only one whose school shuts all the windows and doors when turning on the AC?  It's like an icebox in here.  I had to go get a jacket.

My schools do the same. Class is paused so that the students can close the windows. I prefer the cold over the heat though so I don't mind it freezing in the rooms.

Not sure this belongs in the rant thread, but I feel really sick about what just happened right outside our school...

Domino's driver, I think he's dead.

The thing is/ he was "wearing" his helmet, but he wasn't "wearing" his helmet.

I see it too often.

They put it on, but they don't strap it/"clip" the strap!!!  Why?

Is it just law to put the helmet on, but you don't have to fasten it?

How in the heck is the helmet going to protect you without it being strapped on?

Your chances of survival are pretty low to begin with, but you are pretty much guaranteed to be a vegetable, if you happen to survive, as that helmet is going to go flying off, as it did to the poor Domino's kid.

I tried to comment earlier, but I couldn't. It was truly bizarre. My waygook, open in chrome, told me I had been banned, and yet I could login on my phone and on IE. Had to clear all history for today on my chrome before it worked again. For a short time there though, I was completely panic stricken.

I always think I prefer the cold over heat until it feels like a freezer, hahah.  Still though, I'd rather bundle up than be sweating buckets!

I feel for them as individuals, but as a group, I have lost all sympathy towards scooter drivers. It's not an accident when you actually try to get yourself killed: they compete to break every single possible traffic law, are a hazard to motorists and pedestrians both, and still manage to routinely deliver my haejang-guk to the wrong address.  >:(

Reminds me of the question:

Two Korean scooter drivers are involved in a head-on collision. One is delivering fried chicken. The other is delivering pizza. Which one would you put in the body bag first?

Depends. Is it a super-deluxe-combo pizza, or just a plain cheese pizza?

Also, I would probably jam the guy who is still conscious enough to try and escape in first so that the second guy blocks access to the zipper etc.

I understand your frustration, and I'm sorry that you had to bear witness to something so tragic. Helmets really define the line between life and death in so many cases, no idea why people don't take them more seriously.

I wouldn't want to be the person to inform that poor boy's family.

Last year my coteacher was so nervous about open class that she rehearsed the entire lesson the day before, so the open class was just a performance.

Also helmet safety is no joke. I want to feel sorry for the people that get injured in motorcycle wrecks, but honestly it's kind of a struggle. What do they think is going to happen when their head slams into the ground going so fast?

My father was an amateur cyclist and had a pretty bad accident a few years back thanks to some jackass who turned suddenly in a race without any indication. He's only here today thanks to his helmet. People, put your helmets on, wear your seatbelts, and take other safety precautions, because in the end, if you won't do it for yourself, do it for your loved ones.

Sorry I wasn't more clear.

He, like most, was "wearing" his helmet...but, it wasn't fastened around his chin, so it flew off his head, which didn't do him much good.
