Why. Why. Why. Why. Why the heck am I here? I taught 2 classes Monday and 1 Tuesday. Other than that, I’ve been desk warming. Oh it isn’t that bad, just a few days right? NOPE. All next week Monday to Friday I will be at my desk for 8 hours. Oh, and then the following week as well. Pointless, inefficient, wasting, purposeless, un-thought-the-fok-out, use of time. I could understand this winter when I desk warmed that I use the time to plan for the upcoming semester, which I did. I finished all of my work. But this different now…I have nothing to prepare, no materials to put together, no anythings. Since I’m leaving there is nothing for me to do here but be a foreign face. Of course, I work on other things for PEC and random internet reading/watching but still. Let me go for two weeks. I am wasting energy at the school, eating the food, and being paid. I would gladly give up two weeks pay if I could have the time off. For appearing to be all about budgets and efficiency, Korea is exactly the opposite.
How I feel about being at my desk:
