Yesterday the Czech Foreign Police came to my workplace. And this is actually really good news! Previous to this, I had been telling people that I hadn't heard a peep about my visa in the two months since I went to Dresden to drop off my papers, and that I was choosing to interpret this positively. Now, I am choosing to positively interpret the fact that foreign police officers actually walked into my place of work to make sure that I a) actually worked there, and b) actually live at the address I said was mine. Apparently lots of people lie about these details in their applications.

Anyway, surely they wouldn't take the time to come all the way out to Kačerov at the beginning of a work week if they were going to dismiss my application out of hand, right?

To celebrate, I applied to grad school. Online. In Prague. The school isn't very prestigious, but to be honest I don't have the grades for very prestigious, and I like the sound of a Master's in Foreign Policy and Diplomacy.

Those of you who have had experience of my attempts at "diplomacy" may have to stifle your disbelief. That's what school's for, to teach you how to do things you don't know how to already!

Anyway, I'm super done with teaching. It's fun and normally I don't mind it, but every once in a while I wake up and am just like GOD, if I have to teach kids for ONE MORE FUCKING LESSON I will die. So I will be very glad to stop doing that for a while.

Fun thing I learned today: In Czech, the word for 'bear' is 'medvěd'. I thought this was cool, as the word for 'honey' is 'med'. So I was like, oh, they're calling them honey bears, how sweet! But then a student told me that věd means scientists. And you have to admit that that's even better. Honey scientists!

Also a "friend" tricked me into saying 'I like his penis' under pretense of teaching me to say 'I like U2'. But now I know how to say something rude in Czech so I'm happy anyway.

*finger crossing, that the Czech police may not have wasted their time*

That is basically the best description of a bear I have ever heard.
