How do you do it??
Keep up with the blogging, that is? Honestly, I don't know how you find the time! I've been sitting here for over 2 hours....just visiting blog after blog. I've been trying to comment on everyone's but sometimes my mind goes blank. But I was there, really! There are just so many people to see! So all this time has gone by and I haven't even thought about my own site yet. I think I had something to say too....but now my brain is a big goopy blob of jelly. I mean more so than a brain normally is.
I'm eating jelly right now. It's true! Okay, it's jam, not jelly. A peanut butter and raspberry jam sandwich. A true Chinese delicacy...mmmm. At first I made it too peanutbuttery so I went to add more jam and now there's way too much and it's squooshing out everywhere. Now my fingers are all jammy.
So I threw a fit at one of my classes today. I threw a fit last class too, come to think of it. I guess that's "my thing".Yay. Last time a made a few of them cry. Well they should cry! Stupid disrespectful little brats! Normally I like my students, and consequently feel a bit bad when I make them cry (which isn't as often as it sounds, really!), but this one class just pushes my buttons (I love that saying, btw).They always interrupt and talk to their friends and only ask the Chinese TA questions. Anyway...I don't remember the details of my rant last time, but today I actually stormed out of class. Very dramatic! Especially with the tearing down of poster papers, and enraged crumpling. It was quite a scene - I've always had a knack for them. Basically I'd organised this game to help teach them what people look like, and everyone was having fun playing except these 2 girls, one of whom I despise, and I never thought I'd despise an 12 year old. Anyhoo, I tried nicely to encourage them to get involved, but finally just said "you have to play". The little shithead said "NO". I just lost it. Maybe it doesn't seem like enough of a reason to blow my top, but whoooweeeee did the shit hit the fan! "What the FUCK do you mean 'no'?" And it went on from there....
When I returned to the class, somewhat calmed, they were verrrrrrry quiet. The rest of the class moaned how it wasn't fair because it was only those 2 girls that were being bad. Yup, you're right, it's not fair. WHOEVER TOLD YOU LIFE WAS FAIR??? Ooh, I'm sounding so wonderfully grownup and bitter! Now they all have to write little essays on their bad behaviour and how they will improve. Man, I hated teachers like me!
