Last Call: Hummer Edition

When I first came across this story, I was mortified. Why would there ever be a last call for hummers? Everybody likes them and are a great means of birth control, almost better than pulling out. So when I found out it was about those oversized pieces of crap six-miles-to-the-gallon tank-cars, I was thankful.

I guess what I am saying is I would never pay money for a hummer, but I would gladly take one for free. I’m not sure which one I am referring to now. Huh.

On to the usual dog and pony show.

    Hey folks. Just finished my last exam last night. I’m now just waiting for graduation and then I’ll be a certified teacher.

    Am I ever glad that year is over. Worst year of my life? Maybe. Probably. Having Last Call did help make it bearable though.

      @semper_ubi_sub_ubi, Congrats!!!!! Did you get the gig in China, or are you going off to NZ? (i honestly can’t remember…)

        @Sculptor?!?, Still need the visa, but I’ll be in China from August to July. Bad part is that I’m not going to make any money – only about 12k US for that time. Good part is that 12k will go a long way and I should have an excellent time.

          @semper_ubi_sub_ubi, wait, 12k for 11 months of work? jeesus, i thought teachers were underpaid and all, but fuuuuck.

            @Sculptor?!?, well the only people I know that are graduating and can get jobs are those that a) are working up in the north at a native school (such as in Northern Quebec), b) going to England (where they will make ~20k pounds but have to deal with really difficult classrooms), c) going to the middle east, or d) asia. I could make more money if I went to Korea or Japan, but everyone and their cousin has gone there. China is appealing because it will probably be more interesting than Korea/Japan. Also, I really don’t have much debt to pay off (just to the bank of mom and dad) and I’m going to be working all summer, so I’ll probably put a good dent in that.

            @Sculptor?!?, Australia is hiring too and seems like a pretty good gig (I had a chance to work in Melbourne, but I turned it down). I figure that going to China would just be more interesting / easier to do while I’m single and still in my 20s. Australia would be something that would be a lot easier to do later in life than what China would be.

            The only chance for people to get a job in Ontario is if they want to teach French as a Second Language.

              @semper_ubi_sub_ubi, I should also add that I’ll get my airfare on top of that. Also, it’s only 18-40 minute hours/week + some discussion group time, so it isn’t like I’ll be working full hours and that should allow me some time to enjoy myself.

              @semper_ubi_sub_ubi, it all makes sense, i’m just rather shocked at 1k/mo. and that doesn’t even figure in what you’ll lose to taxes?

                April 27, 2010 at 8:07 pm

                @Sculptor?!?, I only have to pay something like 2% in taxes – I’m just over the threshold for starting to pay. I’m going to be relatively rich there. I’ll be making over twice as much as the Chinese head of the department.

                I never realized until after I took the gig, but some professors from my university had gone and worked with the program in previous years and they say it’s a top notch program and that I’ll be well taken care of. I think I’m going to sign up with a VPN thingy too so that I can still browse the internets without interference from the great firewall. I really just want the internet for posting photos and keeping in touch with people. I’m definitely not going to criticize or be political.

      @Weed Against Speed, Internet access is spotty on my end, but I try to support. I hope it turns around. A busy last call is a fun last call.
