You have failed and now you must Daegu!

Well, one English camp is in the books.

We had another incident on Thursday. One of the students dicked with my computer while I was eating lunch. Due to their dicking with my computer, I was unable to use YouTube in the afternoon. This made my lessons waaaaaaay more difficult. I was using Mr. Bean videos for directions. In a few of his skits, he would drive. I used this to help teach "turn left," turn right," and "go straight." Also, I was teaching "The Wheels on the Bus." It was part of the lesson I was given. I don't know why. Either way, I didn't have music to go with the song. I did my best, but it was a super pain in the ass to teach 2nd and 3rd graders without music.

They brought in the school's computer "specialist" to fix the problem. She played with my computer for an hour before giving up. Then, the Korean teacher attempted to find a suitable replacement. She was unable to locate one and she took FOREVER to stop looking. Either way, the afternoon class on Thursday was a dud.

Friday was great. I had three classes in the morning, followed by lunch. After lunch, the students wrote letters while the foreign teachers rested. Then, everyone met in the library for the closing ceremony. After the closing ceremony, we had an after party. The vice principal drinks like a fucking fish. I sat behind him and he drank with me at least 5 times. Needless to say, I was more than a little tipsy by 4:30. The party ended at 6 and I met Kyung-su after. It was...a long day.
