Sorry my dear friends for not answering in time, I'm still busy preparing for my exams, and another things around me! I promise that as soon as this craziness settles down, I'll take the time and comment on your profiles, check your artworks in depth! I can't wait!
I'm a bit better since my last journal, thanks for encouraging!
I think I found the right occupation. I arrive from school, I'm fed up with this world, and then I go teaching, then students say that they wanted to study with me instead of their relatives when they needed help aside from lessons, show appreciation, understand things as I explain, and some of them say funny stuff... Though when they have to work in a group, I should be tougher, because if 3 of them are together, apocalypse is just around the corner... Instead of names, I'll label them with the same numbers as I did previously...
(There are several photos of famous British&U.S. people)
Student2 *pointing of Queen Elizabeth* : Who's that Scottish woman?
Me: It's Queen Elizabeth.
Student2: She's quite ugly.
Student4: That's only because she's old.
Student2: How old is she?
Me: I don't know, but imagine, she's been reigning for more than 60 years! She's above 80 for sure!
Student2: But isn't that elected for four years?
Me: No, that's how presidents are elected. In kingdoms, like the U.K....
Student2: ...always the Scottish woman reigns?
Me: ...a person usually reigns until his or her death, and then their children follow them... Her son has waited for decades...
Student2: We gotta kill her!
(Are kids getting more psychopaths nowadays, or it's just me who always bumps into psychopath kiddos?)
Student2 (to student4): You know who Student1's wife will be? Barack Obama! (yeah, the arranged marriage with my mother is abolished)
Me: Don't plan on any arranged marriage, boys. And Obama has a wife anyway. Look at the photo, that's them.
Student2: Then it shall be her! *pointing at Emily Bronte*
Me: She's been dead for like 150 years.
Student2: It's not a problem.
Student4: Or the Scottish woman.
Student4: I've a question. What's it, it's a table but not a chair?
Student2: Who doesn't know it?
Student4: X Didn't. He said it was a goat.
(we were playing with some interactive things)
Student2: Look, there's a picture of a goat! Goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat, goat!
Me: You've said "goat" enough times, now let Student4 to the board.
Student2: Just let me say "goat" 10 more times!
Me: No. Let her there.
Student2: But only if she clicks on the board and says "goat".
Student5's little sister (to me): I saw your father in Tesco (equivalent of Walmart over here). Everytime we go there, he's there eating.
(well little bit of father shaming after he registered on dA just to note me if I'm still awake... at 9:30PM... he does not speak English anyway -and thanks for sharing, was inevitable right before class)
Some conclusions I came to:
According to my little students, Scottish people are stupid, Turkish fight badly, Queen Elizabeth is ugly, and so is Obama. I have to ask them once what they think about their own country.
I'm unsure whether I should be glad that one kid forms and says sentences in English without asking, or be freaking confused because the sentence is "I'm a happy goat". (Yes, it was Student2)
Teachers who actually work there should enlighten kids about internet stuff. One older student recorded my two boys fooling around, put it on Youtube and theoretically it has 12000 views. Not like if my class wouldn't have put their crazinesses on Youtube long years ago, but still... And I wonder what they did, because my classmates received only 280 in 4 years...
I'll never let my kids next to that interactive board. Ever.
I should try to tell Student5 in a careful way that the pronounciation of "as" and "ass" may be similar, but they are a whole lot different...
Today's kids are psychopaths. Fantasizing about switching Student1's and Queen Elizabeth's heads in their coffins is "a tad" weird for me (of course, when I learned my Granny's Hungarian-Latin disease dictionary and the names of all the Sydney olympics participants and made them ill in my tales... that was a whoooole lot different... but I was only 4 and they are 9...)

Asking for camera advice + daily kids sayingsSo, my dear fellow artist friends, I would like to ask you for an advice in terms of cameras... It really seems like my camera is in its last dying days, though it wasn't 3 years old. Does not turn on, does not take photos, goes dark, flashes and also developed battery problems, I think it would not be really worth to get it repaired for a horrendous prize, I'd rather get myself a DSLR one, maybe it would help me to become a better photographer, and there are also more opportunities. My current, dying camera is a Nikon Coolpix L810 (Is it normal for them to only survive 2.5 years?), and the camera I aim to get for my high school graduation is a Nikon d3200. Does anyone over here have a mode of this type? If you could share your experiences, I'd be really-really grateful! Also, does it survive long? I mean, I'm not rich, maybe it's my only opportunity to get a DSLR. Shall I go for it, or do you advise another cameras? What lenses do you use, what go well with Nikon d3200? I'm curious ab
Kids sayings. Kids sayings everywhere.Hello! I'm making a short report from the camp, that'll end tomorrow! It's both amusing and exhausting, tomorrow after the whole voluntary thing will finish, I'll try to slowly catch up with everything in dA! And I've a friend over, who is also volunteering, so we're trying to spend as much time together as possible. But there are minutes when she is a bit away, like now, so let's make a journal... I've been missing you all! Talk to you tomorrow, until then have some wisecracks! (important to know: my parents organize the whole camp)
Dad: Tomorrow when we'll go to the zoo and the adventure park, you should bring money for yourselves, if you want to buy some extra things, for example when dining in McDonald's.
Boy: I have lots of money! *some minutes later* We are broke! We are very broke! (some years later hopefully he'll not be boasting about neither of them)
*at a red lamp, in busy traffic, behind a crossing*
Boy: Couldn't we go faster?
Car driver girl: No, we're
Little update about me + children's funny sayingsHello dear everyone! On Thursday I went to a hospital in the Capital city to inquire whether I can have a laser eye surgery or not. Fortunately the investigations showed that everything's alright with my eye, what's more, my cornea is so thick that it would be able to endure more surgeries as well. I had to be there for 6 hours altogether (but no matter, I got to know some really nice people over there), and with the professor's blessings I'll have my eyes done on the 28th of July! I can't wait to get rid of my glasses, it is so disturbing that I can see nothing without them!
The professor will do the surgery, he seems to be a very nice gentleman and a great expert. We looked into his praxis, he's been doing laser eye corrections since 1992, and has had more than 25000 patients so far. So there is a little chance of probability that he would spoil mine! The process will only last 10 minutes - 5 minutes per eye, though I'll be awake during it. It's n
