aren't I obnoxious? ^~ making my own thread like this. Anyhoo! There's a purpose. You know how sometimes people who rarely post make updates? Here's mine --

Since becoming scarce, I managed to finally get a job. It doesn't pay well or anything, but it's sort of nice. My mom tutors a filipino woman in English who has a bunch of other filipino friends who have filipino kids ranging from age three to seven, none of which know any English at all. So, I get to teach these kids the language, and .. it's hard. They have almost no attention span whatsoever, so, we're currently working on colours and numbers at the moment, and I have the three year old counting up to fifteen after the first couple of sessions. Of course, when I had her assign colours on my rat [white fur, red eyes] it just got repeatedly poked in the face. Poor thing.

And, um, school! Yes, school. Schooly school school. Some of you know I'm a very bad scholar and pretty much pissed away all of it. So, I'm doing much better so far this year, and .. I hope it works out for the best. Anyway, that's..stuff. Just felt like being slightly open, since I saw others doing it. ^^

Nice to hear from you syuu ... I hope school is going better, in a less bad way, and maybe you should ask Auntie Jaq for some advice on child-control. I understand that where she is, if the kids are misbehaving or being uncontrollable, the teacher challenges them to 10 minutes on the tatami, straight knock-out, no holds barred ... No wonder she's complaining of a headache ...

Hey Syuu! That sounds like a really cool job! I find that flash cards work really well and kids love things that they can memorize like songs. Teaching them a counting song or the ABC song is fun. If you want a colour song sing this song in tune to the ABC song. I used it today... them kids can't get enough of the singing. It's like kiddy crack.


red and orange, yellow and green
blue, indigo and purple
red and orange, yellow and green
blue indigo and purple
Now I know the colour song
Next time won't you sing with me?

I've got other songs and materials if you want to PM me.

Good point Jaq, try kiddie crack on them too. That'll keep 'em quiet for a while... Get them addicted, then force them to learn sections of the dictionary by heart before you give them another hit. The withdrawal will soon get them motivated.

I should be a teacher.

'Good to hear school is going well. Keep it up! I was visiting a friend this week and he's having to go back and have evening classes now because he never paid any attention in maths lessons. Sometimes that kind of thing comes back and bites you later in life, so it's worth giving it a good stab the first time.

*mails Jaq a plane ticket and hands off the children to her*

No, Polos, I just have a very hard time saying no to people I don't dislike. Like, if Mata asked me to go base jumping, you'd next see me with a broken neck talking about how fun it was. I'll use that song tonight and make them recite me the F encyclopedia or something, if they all don't start biting me and demanding stickers.

..Got in trouble because one was covered with them. She got into the book while I was busy and made a second skin.

And yeah, not being good at school will bite. But, haven't missed anything yet and am about to do homework now, so, here goes. Thanks everyone. ^~

and Missy, you're the queen of sexy.

SPS, mind elaborating? *thinks bad thoughts*

teaching is fun, extremely so if you know how to keep their attention for a period of time... just like kiddy nip(cat nip for kids) it just makes them more... "attentive"... yes... attentive...

Well, I already knew *most* of that news from reading your LJ, but I have to say Katii...I am SHOCKED. Just SHOCKED.

Not one, but TWO Syuu posts that aren't in the Arial font? I don't know what to think! sad.gif What is the world coming to?

Meanwhile, naked teachers? I would be a great deal more traumatized if my teachers had done that. I'm a little bit traumatized just THINKING about it, actually. blink.gif

Arrrg! I'm sorry, Candice, you're right. I've been so lazy, and it's so durn tiny that I'm afraid people can't read it. happy.gif and yes, if you, uh, want to subscribe to syuunews, you can comment on my livejournal and become privy to a bunch of moodswings and pointless rambling about nothing in particular! Yay! The tutoring's going better. I used Jaq's song, but she interrupted me to sing twinkle twinkle little star instead. Most of them know what a star is, and fish, but not much else. Ah well, it goes slowly. Thanks for all the input, kids happy.gif aaaaaalways welcome. SPS, you're a naughty bunny. and Geoff, don't do that! It'll work! *glances around at scattered clothes, frowns.*

glad to know things are going more smoothly this year for you, katii, but please, god, whatever you do DON'T listen to Mata on this one. Kids + drugs = law suits. I should know, after that time I... uh... witnessed those schoolkids on acid, er, one time...
