For real, I'm not a Disney fan at all, and I really liked the Jungle Book remake. Aladdin was pretty whatever, but the Jungle Book was super fun. Some really inspired voice actor casting.

Yeah, the jungle book was pretty enjoyable.

What is it with students changing their names?  In all the time I've been here, there is at least one or two who change their names every year.  This came up today as I came into school and there was a coolmessenger saying one of my 1st grade students has changed their name.  Parent thing?  Luck thing?  Aligned with the stars thing?

Really? I usually only have like one or two students per school, maximum, who go by a name different than the one listed on the class list. It's not that uncommon in western countries, either. I know quite a few people who preferred to go by something other than their given name.

Could be a parent thing. Could be a student autonomously choosing it thing. Maybe they were getting bullied for their name or something. Who knows.

I think luck might be a big part of it.  My coworker's mother wanted her to change her name to something more lucky in the hope it would help her meet a potential husband (as she was single).

When my son was 5 he wanted to change his name to “Puss-in-boots”.

We are going to do it... under Canadian law when he is 17 1/2.

Anyone met the other users here in real life?

I sold JNM some video games last year. Super nice guy. ------------------

OnNut81 is a real nice bloke, too.  -------------------------------------------------

And I think I'll meet BasedCowboy next week at a concert.

I actually went to Yeosu last year and opened Tinder and NomadicMadda was first on my views. Holy shit, she is gorgeous, my lord.

I didn't match. hahahahaha
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

I always think that the goodbyes are gonna be easy. But then people gotta go and make it difficult!

Came to my last Friday class and the students at my filled two posters with goodbye messages.

Not so TGIF this time  :cry:

Some things sound amazing on paper, but reality has a lot of buts that kind of ruin the fun.

Last I remember she said something about leaving ESL so that she could focus on other things. I think she enrolled in a Korean university for a semester or two, then *I think* she was planning to go home.

Well, we're making towers out of cardboard and popsicle sticks next week on the first day of camp. See which one can support the most weight. 2 classes x 4 teams = 8 towers. They're gonna be................. 1m tall? We only have 40-50mins to build them so they're not gonna be huge.

 :-* Kevin T, can you come to the 행정실? Your Co-T ordered some stuff.............. ..........

 :police: Yeah, sure.

I get down there and................ .......

SEE ATTACHMENT First picture is all of it. Second is half that I moved to my class.

We have 600m2 of cardboard. Hell, we could build a village outside for the down on their luck folk at this rate.

Holy hell, hahahahaha
