I must follow all Melbourne blogs.
Home in two weeks and I am looking forward to it so much that I’m scared the universe will somehow screw me over. I’ve been quite sick for a while now…oh please Universe…don’t make me go to the doctor here*
*The doctors here are perfectly educated/qualified and adequate at their job. However, they are renowned for seeing Westerners and skipping ahead about three steps of checkups to the most expensive procedure. I’ve never met an expat here with a happy doctor story.
I made a revision pack for the exam my senior students are taking soon. I told them that it was their homework but to only take one if they were going to do it (at this stage I’m not forcing them to do homework).
16/17 students took the revision homework.
It was due today…
3/16 students were absent from class. I had seen two of them earlier in the day and suspect they were at school.
2/16 students denied that I’d ever given the class homework.
5/16 students retrieved crumpled up, unfinished sheets from the bottom of their bags.
1/16 claimed to have been absent when the homework was given (not true).
5/16 students had ‘completed’ the homework BUT…
3/5 had copied each other and had all the same errors.
So hooray, there are only two students in my senior class who give a shit whether they pass their exam. Today, in addition to being happy I’m leaving Vietnam, I’m actually happy to be leaving a class. I think this is the first time I’ve had this feeling.
My students have been annoying me with this ’ Live fast - Die young’ thing. So I made this for them.
Woke up to three new job rejections. Two of which I was perfectly qualified for. I hope I’m not making a huge mistake going back to Australia rather than Europe.
So I saw this at citimart and I don’t know what to comment on first..
My year in flights - one more to go.
