This morning while standing in the hallway taking off my rainboots, a third grade student came up to me and asked me for some clarification.

“Teacher. If I say “I gotta go pee pee” is that okay?
“Um… Well…”

I then spent the next five minutes in the hallway differentiating between all the various ways we express our bodily urges. Good to know that even though I don’t teach third grade students anymore, they still view me as a resource.

This morning as I walked to school you could see the frost on the ground. I didn’t think much of it, as Google’s weather forecast told me that it’d be 50 degrees at noon today.

Lies. It is barely above freezing.

I am so cold. They leave the door open in the cafeteria and I ate my lukewarm food huddled over with my winter coat on. They leave the window open in the bathroom and as I washed my hands I noticed that I could see my breath.

It’s only going to get colder from here on out. Have I mentioned how much I hate Korean winter? I hate Korean winter.
