I should be dead by the weekend then!

Yesterday, today and tomorrow will total about 12 hours sat at my desk (afternoons off 'cause of some kinda contest - it's not English-related so I don't know the details). In the 7 hours deskwarming, I've done about 2 hours of work. :-[

I read an article that said you have an elevated risk of having a heart attack when exercising, so I guess we are all out of luck.

In other news, stop worrying and enjoy life!

What's with all the hate for deskwarming?  I can think of worse things than getting paid to drink tea and surf the web and catch up on lesson plans (thus freeing up more after work/weekend time).  True, it doesn't really benefit the schools and it would be nice to get those days off, but then we'd end up with like 50 days of paid vacation and that's pretty excessive.  20 paid days a year for people in their 20s is pretty rare in the States right now.  I'm personally looking forward to midterms!   :D

Get real! This is K-land... desk warming will only kill you if you sleep at your desk in front of a fan.
The Ks once gave me five minutes notice. I didn't know what to do with the extra time.

Deskwarming is greatit allows you free time away from distractions to get on with all your little side projects. It beats real work any day of the week.

There's nothing stopping you from getting off your butt. Also, workout after school or get a girlfriend for some extra curricular activities,

Erm? I think that is for people that already have heart disease. They normally never recommend less exercise to young (relatively) people presently free of disease.

I wondering if I should be standing up at my desk. That would look weird however. :laugh:

If you stand at your desk, you burn twice as many calories as you would sitting down. I occassionally stand at my desk and my co-teachers all know why. Some of them even do it themselves now! ;D

A great thing to read while deskwarming for my second of three days! (midterm exams)   :D
Although the early release of the exam schedule does permit me more time for exploring (yay for walking).

I always take time after classes to roam the school, talking to whoever I meet. Students can change completely from inside to outside the class. Shy, quiet students become noisy and friendly. Obnoxious students can even become sweethearts. The class dynamic seems to really affect how a student chooses to act. And you can meet teachers and have conversations with people you don't normally talk to. you would be surprised how many teachers actually speak English, even though they will never say a word if unprovoked by a foreigner.

not just deskwarming~ but being inactive for a long period of time is just harmful for the body!

i suggest taking a break after lunch and just roam around the school...now that all the schools are made into 'parks' for the neighborhood its a great opportunity to take advantage of it! and give yourself a stretch break at your desk from time to time~ it will help you be more awake and refreshes you as well!

i know we have too much time at our desk at times~ but for our own health...shake that body and move around from time to time ^^

Deskwarming - What do you do?

So you're done with lesson planning and classes are cancelled for this reason or that. What do you do to occupy your time?

I'm a writer, so I love deskwarming time.  No games or TV to tempt me, just me and the novel.

Study Korean. I keep a TOPIK prep book and a couple other books at school and take them out when I have some free time.
