Awkward & Awesome.


Yodel-ay-hee-hoo.... If you were a yodeler, you would greet me that way. Probably. I'm actually not positive because I'm not a yodeler. 
Let's get down to business (to defeat the huns) and get on with Awkward & Awesome, shall we? We shall.

Awkward. 
1. Every time I read or say the word "America," I feel the need to say it "Amuurkuh." Don't understand? Here, let me just say it for you:

2. Creepy older dudes who may or may not teach at the same educational institute as myself with no sense of boundaries or personal space. No, we're not talkin' sexual harassment, just a dude with no idea how close he has to stand to me in order to give me lesson ideas. Or how long he has to stare at me. 
3. The amount of staring Germans do. They just stare and stare and stare. And then if you notice them staring? They don't stop. They just keep on keepin' on.



4. Joking around with my 13th class about what should probably be "taboo" subjects. Puke and rally, drugs (soma from the book Brave New World), baby makin', all the good stuff. No, I didn't encourage any of it, I just got into a jovial discussion about matters that you generally don't talk about in mixed company (gosh this makes me sound like a horrible person). I promise it all had to do with the literature we were reading.




Awesome. 
1. Sleeping in. That never fails to be awesome. 



2. Getting compliments from an incredibly critical German colleague. I got told that I was a good teacher. WHAT UP (Barney Stinson, anyone?)?!?! So excited. If you knew how blunt and honest and critical most Germans were (not a bad thing - it's part of the culture, and I actually really like it), you would think this was awesome, too.
3. Skype. What a wonderful piece of technology. You can make faces at people from thousands of miles away. Should this be under "awkward?"




Happy Thursday, people!!

Okay, I have an ever so slight lisp and sometimes when I say things, I can FEEL the lisp. Like, I THALLY THILLY THINGY. Yuck.

I'm sure you get it.

Nice to see you talk by the way. :-)

Legendar!! (Legendary). :) Glad those teachers finally know what's up! Of course you're a great teacher! Seems like you can really relate to your students. Not all teachers, here, or anywhere, have that ability! Great job, you!

PLEASE be my teacher!

I think the last one is awkward and awesome, the only thing I HATE about skype is that it's awesome but it makes you want to be there! hahaha

Kelly said...

LOVE it!! You make my favourite face too (aka the last one)! And you're right, sleeping in never fails to be awesome.

so I definitely clicked on the Sound of Music clip and now can't get it out of my head. My childhood in a nutshell ;)

we are going to The Sound of Music tomorrow night and I will think of my new blogging friend reading the thought provoking Brave New World.
Skyping is the only valid reason I let my kids study abroad!.

That is EXACTLY how most people say America around here! I'd resist the urge though - it makes you sound backwoods cowboy. ;o)

Sooo, if you pulled a German stare back at them, would it become a stare down? I'm pretty certain we used to do that in elementary school. We called them staring contests. No one was allowed to blink. :o)
