Korea: the Country Where Bureaucracy Went to Die.

I've already changed the score sheet on which I need to record test scores 4 times in the last two days. They new format they sent us will require me to do mathematical averages for 68 students. Multiple that by three sections. You see the problem. If I have to do it again because a bunch of morons are too lazy to get their shit together before the semester even started then I'm going to flip.

I've woken up at 4:45am every day this week. Last week I woke up every day at 5:45am. At this rate I'll be waking up at 3:45am next week, at which point I will slit my wrists. I'm so tired. This is probably why I am taking offense to everything. Well, that, and the fact that virtually everyone I know is a fucking moron.

I'm teaching a new conversation class for the non-immersion 11 year olds. These kids have next to no English. Today I taught from a textbook that I used with my six year olds last year. Last period of the day, four days a week... fuck. At the very least I intend on improving Jay's reading. His English is limited to two words: "Englishee no." Today they learned shapes, colors, numbers, and basic school supplies/instructions. They're going to learn English if it kills me.
