Comedian Doug Benson tries to shed light on the effects of medical marijuana use by smoking pot for 30 days in a row and then going cold turkey for the next thirty days in his documentary in Super High Me.
Since all of the teachers are busy making costumes for the kids, the main abuser at my school found some interesting ways of dealing with 5 year old trouble makers.
First she started by using duct tape. Duct tape you ask? Yes, duct tape. She taped the duct tape onto their little hands and pulled it back roughly. The other strategy involved putting the take on their little mouths and pulling it back. It must hurt badly. The kids cry out in pain and the abuser relishes this.
I’ve given notice at my jobs that I will be leaving in the second week of January last week. Things have started to get awkward. I haven’t really disclosed anything to the staff. I’m letting the boss take care of that.
I guess that I’ve changed my mind about Kid Nation. I don’t think it’s that bad, but it’s not something I would let my kid do. That’s irrelevant since I don’t have any kids. Basically it’s just like some form of summer camp activity with cameras. It’s not revolutionary or incredible. It’s still interesting to see the kids interact.
I’ve been stuck with a fever for the last few days. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s something you expect when you work this closely with little kids. The worst is actually when I get home and relax. The fever really hits me at around 9PM and knocks me out. I’d like to be bedridden, but I have to work. Luckily, I won’t be tutoring tomorrow and I’ll have a weekend to get my strength up again. Hopefully by Monday things will be better.
I find it hard to sleep when I have a fever. It’s never restful. Thankfully I was able to get a lot of rest last night. Right now, I’m typing from under a duvet and starting a good sweat. I’m drinking lots of fluids and using Ibuprofen to keep the fever down.
Tim was looking pretty happy today. He kept saying
I like you…
Replace the three little dots with my name. He’s a really good kid, but he sometimes spaces out and doesn’t pay attention. He’s a bit of a clown and likes to make other kids laugh, which doesn’t sit well with his Taiwanese teacher.
