The Lion King is my favorite movie of all time. I have no expectation that this remake will come even close to what the original was, I'm sure nobody is expecting that. I still want to watch it despite all the negativity with reviews surrounding it. I enjoyed Aladdin, and that was panned critically but adored by the regular audiences. As long as I can get a little nostalgic, I'll be satisfied. Though no Be Prepared is a huge sin.

(Also definitely won't be watching the new Mulan due to all the awful changes they've made)

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.

because they get to choose their english names themselves (well, apart from those whose parents choose for them)

i was forever changing my gaming/online usernames when i was younger

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.

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:
