Renewal time didn't roll around so much as it was shat on us without warning. We were notified last Thursday that our applications, evaulations, and recommendation forms are due Friday. 8 days notice.
Korean communication standards as usual. My coteacher denied any knowledge until Monday afternoon, just as I'm packing up to go. Passive aggressive cunt that she is, I have no idea if she intends to write me a recommendation letter or if she's just going through the motions just to screw me as a surprise later.
The application itself is mostly taken care of by her. I just need to write down my information, and choose to apply to change schools. Seems simple, as my application must be submitted electronically. However, I do not have three evaluations.
To rectify this, I have to teach a 4th grade lesson in front of the principal, vice principal, and head teacher on Thursday. Since 4th grade has completed the textbook and we have been doing essentially the same lesson for the last month, my lesson will have to be planned from scratch. Even so, it'll still be more or less the exact same topic and key language.
But wait, there's more. Instead of focusing on making this lesson plan, It is of 'emergent priority' that I create a lesson plan with my CT's fluffy lesson plan template for the admin to gawk over. Who in their right mind would waste such a colossal amount of fucking time with any real lesson?
After multiple rejections, I finally gave my CT a version that was almost acceptable- though she would edit it thoroughly and resent me for my incompetence.
To make things worse, our kitchen is under renovation, and it was the first day with the new catering service. They brought us slimy, meatless spaghetti, rice, and tofu soup. I filled up my tray, put it in the garbage, and had to excuse myself before the situation escalated into a multiple homicide. I wasn't able to stop myself from getting in the face of one of those shit-heel caterers in their white lab coats and yelling, "DELICIOUS. IT WAS DELICIOUS. THANK YOU." in Korean.
So this God-forsaken school has succeeded in ruining my week up until my girlfriend came over and put some suck in my dick. This awful open class business was all supposed to be over today, Thursday, however the CT called me after I had already got home to tell me that the vice principal would be busy, so my open class was pushed to Friday- the day of the deadline.
If it weren't for waygook I'd be fucked.
