  1. Job woes/wins

    Getting the impression from management that literally anyone else could be doing my job and that they wouldn't notice: My Year 1 colleague demanded to go part-time next year or she would leave. Request granted. This means that I'm now the only experienced EYFS teacher in Year 1, which you would think make them more motivated to keep me... well, motivated. But no. "Where's my career going here?" "Wherever we say it is and we're not interested in discussing it." "Look at the improvements in teaching and curriculum content delivery I have made over the past few years. Is that perhaps something I can do more of across the department?" "No." "I've led workshops before and have everything prepared, I hear that someone has dropped out of the cross-campus development seminar. Would you like me to present?" "No, we don't want you to do it, we'd prefer to cancel the time slot." "Oh, so I'm essentially nothing and nobody here?" "We didn't say that. We did imply it, but we didn't say it. Stop presuming to speak for us."
  2. Indoor security camera tips

    I have a Xiaomi Yi Sport Camera that has been to Vegas, Thailand and Malaysia with me, the quality is acceptable and it has been treated roughly. The main issues I have had is the wifi connectivity to the App, which can be slow and spotty, plus the App is in chinglish and I'm never sure if I have it set right to record audio AND video.
  3. Organ Donation: Opt Out?

    I think there are religious reasons that automatically should be put in the category of "Opt-Out" - IIRC Judaism and Islam require the complete body untouched for burial? I could be wrong on that one. But I'm relatively ambivalent on this, generally speaking.
  4. Star Trek Discovery (2017)

    There were rocky moments, but generally I liked the tone. I didn't believe the Tyler arc though, even for sci-fi, my limits were pushed.
  5. The Walking Dead

    I'm a die-hard fan of the TV show, but I have to say that I am "over" Negan and the Saviours with their creepy, almost prescient ability to bounce back from everything. And yeah, I thought Rick was supposed to be a badass, but he seems to have been de-powered these last two seasons.
  6. good stuff thread.

    That's a good feeling! Glad to see you on a positive road.
  7. Job woes/wins

    There are still independent game shops out there? That's awesome!
  8. Deadpool 2

    I think he was basically born to be Deadpool in movies. Everything else up to this point has just been... practice?
  9. Jessica Jones

    I enjoyed Jessica Jones, much more than I did Iron Fist. Ok, so the self-hating, alcoholic anti-hero thing was a little draining, but it's no worse than Daredevil's "I must obey the law", Batman's "My parents are DEEEEEAAAAAADDDDD!" or Danny Rand's boundless optimism.
  10. Slightly delayed, but nonetheless, happy birthday!
  11. Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 2018)

    Based on the trailer alone, I'm not interested. But I'm ready to be surprised.
  12. Football Season 2017-18

    Please come to St James' this Sunday and be consistent, so that we can at least salvage a vague sense of pride out of our inevitable defeat.
  13. Job woes/wins

    Parent-Teacher conferences today at work. Co-teacher tells me she has the flu, says "should I come in?" "No Because I'll be sitting next to you all day. You could also infect the parents and the kids" School management says "Yes! Come to work, it's an important day!" I swear, if I get sick, there's going to be serious, serious trouble.

    Stay safe, bro.
  15. Nintendo Event - TONIGHT 10pm

    Or a porn simulator called "Labiia". It would sell millions. Soggy cardboard, though.
