My weekend has been productive, yet also boring. It matches Friday where nothing happened except that about half the students didn't show up, due to the bathroom wall threat. I had a high of 14 students to a low of 5, but we worked every period and the kids who came had a good time. Some of them loved the smaller classes! Since I'm a fatalist, I don't get apprehensive about shit stuff like this; as I told the students: I drive in a car, I go to the store, mall, movies, coffee shops, college campuses and walk on the streets. I live in a neighborhood with lots of potentially angry(and armed) people. There have been shootings in ALL THESE PLACES, including this coffee shop mass murder of cops who were trained professionals. Enough said? So, I mowed both lawns, tried to kill more moss, dusted, vacuumed and mopped my house(does swiffering count?), worked on my taxes, and read. I also concluded that, for my sleep cycle, every day should be a weekend, since my efficiency was 93% both nights. During the week it ranged from high 70s to mid 80s. Tomorrow through Thursday I'll be dealing with quizzes, conferences(half-days, with a hellacious 4-8 Thursday evening with parents and students), then a flight to Los Angeles on Friday morning. I'm not really sure what I should pack or wear because I only want to take a backpack. Very complicated! Although I would love to look chic, the boots probably won't travel well in a backpack.;) I also reviewed my trip to Korea, where I found the following description of my Gunpo hotel: Situated in Gunpo, this hotel is close to Anyang Benest Golf Course. Area attractions also include Korea Railroad Museum and Mr Toilet House. Of course, if you know me well, you won't be surprised that I intend to go there and try to find a t-shirt! Don't worry though, my Seoul hotel looks like a more interesting location! Now it's off to figure out the rest of my evening, which will be regrettably short.
