can we synchronize? meet me in the backroom.
i'm coming down with a cold...i can feel it in my throat...all the excess secretions...blarg. how am i going to yell at my devil children tomorrow? my throat is already starting to get burny too...bleh...funny, now matter how mean i am to my kids...they can't learn to be quiet. whenever i try and have a student HELP me make them quiet, they can see how much of a pain it is, but of course they can't control themselves. kids will be kids...if i'm still working there after summer, i'm totally renouncing duties as a second grade "teacher" and choosing a more well behaved class, *cough* my once third graders who'll be fourth graders next year or go back to being a TA (depending on my availability). i'm such a weakling...doesn't help that i'm short either (average height to the normal, short to those who think they are that damn good~), lol.
well anyway, i'm typing a short entry while i digest because i don't want to throw up while exercising. backtracking on my last entry, i "played" pokemon with one of my students on friday. it was like...not even the right way to play. i was like..."okay, how do we set it up" and basically, he just told me to go through the deck he gave me and choose a pokemon, use the attacks, and calculate the damage that way. no use of energy or trainer cards...lol, but what can you expect from a 7 year old anyway. there's all these pokemons i don't even know anymore...like wailtor or someshit...
another one of my kids was absent on friday and i assumed it was because her mom went into labor. my assumption turned out to be correct! i guessed her baby brother's name today too because i asked her if her parents decided on a name yet. how many names can you guess that starts with an A anyway? because all i could guess was Arnold and Aaron, and it was the latter. it was kind of cool though because i was there when she said her mom was preggers and now she ain't!! 9 months sure fly.
|years of learning chinese over and over again doesn't really help. well...if i had to do an impromptu message in chinese, i'd fail miserably.|
i also played "rock band" for the first time that night. it was so hard...so much harder than dance dance revolution...lol. karoke revolution was also played and that was funner. i also played singstar? i think lol.
|we don't have a dryer so whenever it rains really hard, i have to go to the laundromat or i can hope the rain stops a couple days later. it rained quite a bit yesterday. it's like the most rain that has ever hit in a couple years.|
|saw this at costco and thought it was really cute.|
lastly, i've never felt so defeated early on...until a couple days ago, LOL.
hopefully now it is...pretty easy to read...
