This is the view from my shower. And this is the part where I acknowledge that people probably don’t care.

Asked a student to use “Get over” in a sentence to which she responded, “I got over the fact that my boyfriend had sex with my cousin”. Well done, but perhaps it’s best to keep stuff like that to yourself. Never a dull moment in my classes, that’s for sure. 

Debating about China or South Korea for my next ESL job so I can make some cash for the World Cup in Brasil. Any input would be appreciated. Cheers
