So...I've been a bit busy with work lately. As a result, there's not much going on in my life except my continuing nail polish acquisitions and experiements. I should use the drying-time to update my blog, but I'm not exaggerating when I say there's nothing to write about.
So far this year we've had some new teachers and some new students. So, nothing new. One of the teachers was telling me that she thinks TEFL attracts weirdos. At first I was wondering what gave her that idea, but then I remembered this from earlier that day:
D: You should be careful with that.
B: It's okay, I'm pretty sure I'm going to die young.
C: Yeah, I'm definitely going to get some kind of cancer.
[they go on like this]
A: I'm not planning on getting any type of cancer, but if I do I'm on the first plane to Japan.
A: Well, there's this fish and if you eat it and they prepared it wrong you can die. So right now I'm not going to eat it because it's dangerous. But if they told me I had cancer I'd be all, "oh hellz yeah! I'm going to get me some fugu."
D: What is WRONG with you people?!
So I think the real question is not "what gave her that idea?" but "why tell me?"
And then there's the fact that two of my students this year really, really dislike each other. If they were in the same class, this would be a nightmare, but they are not, so it is pretty funny.
Even funnier is the fact that they're both planning the same vacation. Not as in, they're both going to the same country. As in, they're both planning almost the exact same elaborate road trip. My project is to try and get them to go together. They'd spend half the money on fuel, reduce their carbon footprints (you know how important this is to Russians*), increase potential time spent driving, and it is a lot safer than going alone. Also, they'd come back and either they'd get along better, and I'd have done a good deed or it'd be all Rashomon-like with each one telling a completely different story and I'd be entertained.
And Putin came to visit our town on Friday. I didn't see him, though.
* I am being sarcastic, but I forgot that a lot of the people reading this wouldn't know that.
