smokers. actually, no. let me clarify. i don’t care if you smoke or not, but i hate those who are so inconsiderate. it’s none of my business if you smoke, but can you not smoke in front of babies, toddlers, children?! even teens, adults, old people — i’m sure they don’t want to be inhaling that secondhand shit. those who smoke everywhere, including in no smoking zones. once i witnessed a man smoke outside a preschool where children were out on the playground. he was a couple of feet away, yet he still chooses to exhale right in front of them. what the heck is up with that? it wouldn’t kill them to go elsewhere to take a puff? do you know how many people die from smoking or lung cancer? not ten. not hundreds. not thousands. but m-i-l-l-i-o-n-s. if they want lung cancer, so be it. but how about they just put a little consideration into their actions and not do it in front of a crowd of people who want to breathe in the already populated “fresh” air. as for me, i hate the smell of secondhand smoke. i feel like gagging every time. simply shooting them the bitch look or dramatically coughing to make them feel “guilty” doesn’t exactly make that carbon monoxide disappear. trust me, i’ve tried.
this year i have a super duper nice teacher. he’s one of the most caring and most forgiving teachers i have ever encountered. he’s too nice. he shares his life stories, and even though sometimes it isn’t the most interesting, i listen to them because it’s the least i can do. the whole class can be chaotic, and he’ll still be cheerfully talking. it’s pretty sad sometimes. he has good intentions, and wants his students to learn from his mistakes. i think he’s the perfect grandpa. he told us a story about how his little grandson wants to build a boat that would sail in the bathtub, and he ended up making it from scratch. then they both sailed the boat together. it’s just so cute. his laptop wallpaper is a picture of his grandson in the driver’s seat of a car “driving”. his wife is his high school sweetheart and they spent over 50 years together but he still love her as always. i think he’s one of the best people i know. he’s always our committee adviser, and we want to get him a super awesome christmas present this year. i know it’s a little early and all, but it’s never too early for christmas.
