There’s no air conditoning in the classrooms, and the ceiling fans are haven’t been cleaned and are an allergy attack waiting to happen, so it’s unbearably hot in the homerooms. Thus, students have been leaving the windows and doors open to try to generate a breeze.

I was standing in front of the chalkboard during my sixth period class (2.7) when I noticed that two of the girls in the front row were staring intently at the slope where my shoulder meets my neck. I assumed I had had some kind of wardrobe malfunction, and as I moved my hand up to my neck to check, I felt something small and hard beneath my fingers. I had no idea what it was, so I grabbed it in between my two fingers and flung the object away from me.  Turns out it was a wasp, and I somehow neatly managed to throw it so that it went straight out the window from the middle of the classroom. Without acknowledging the wasp or breaking my stride, I continued to teach my lesson.

Spring Cleaning

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Last night I couldn’t sleep, so I decided to go on an after-midnight cleaning spree.  After sweeping I had a lot of fine dust particles that were seemingly stuck to the dustpan and after trying to get the dust off with the brush into the trashcan for what seemed like forever, I decided to shake the dustpan out the window.

Well. Apparently the bin and the handle are detachable, so while enjoying the cool night breeze and shaking my dustpan I freaking CHUCKED MY DUSTPAN OUT OF THE WINDOW. I live on the second floor. It fell 2 stories and landed on the ground with a thump

 A dog started to bark but other than that I didn’t hear any sounds, so then I stealthily snuck out with my hood over my head, grabbed it, and hurried back inside. Thank goodness I live in the countryside, and my apartment is full of people that sleep at normal times, this  would’ve been difficult to explain.
