So my first two days went wonderfully!

I teach fifth grade btw, with 28 students - 18 of which are boys! They're an active class, but fortunately I've learned a lot of techniques for class management and things are going very well. It's going to be a great year. I'll have to post more with some of the fun things they do.

In other news, I'm broadening my multi-cultural experiences and I've (finally) started watching Doctor Who. And yes, I'm a glutton for doing things the hard way, and I'm starting at the very beginning with the First Doctor* I keep reading that newbies should just start with the reboot, but I want the full Britishish experience. I don't want to be looked down upon by the real fans (I mean, anymore than I already should be looked down upon).

*new lingo that I've learned

Uptil now, my vague understanding of Doctor Who was that there was doctors, not called "Doctor Who" who maybe went around time with Compnaions and idek solved mysteries or changed history or something. Also something with a British phone booth and it was called a Tardis. And they fought Daleks.

I've also learned that it's pronounced DAH-leks not DAY-leks like my ignorant American self was saying.

I must say, it's been pretty fantastic so far. That theme song is pretty dang sweet.
