Nick Named Students
  • Romeo– Romeo is a junior, and he has a HUGE crush on this girl in his class. One time I came to class and he raises his hand and then he just yells out “Teacher! I want to kiss Wang Sha!” The poor girl. Luckily it worked out for him because a couple of weeks later he told me she was his girlfriend when she was sitting right there, and she didn’t deny it.  Whenever he has to come to the board to write a sentence or something he always uses it to profess his love to her.
  • Obama– I don’t know Obama’s real name. On the first day of school he introduced himself as Obama and it’s stuck all year long.
  • Game Boy– Game Boy is Maddie and I’s favorite senior student. He’s incredibly disruptive, but he ALWAYS wants to play games, and so we make him go first for everything. We teach his class together. Usually one of us will teach the lesson and the other one will keep Game Boy occupied. Other wise he just keeps raising his hand and asking questions or trying to get you to come over and “Chatter with him.” We like him because he has the most personality of all the kids we teach, but he can be a handful. One time he decided that he really wanted to hug us, and so he like practically tackled Maddie and I.
  • Monkey– This kid actually just asked to be called Monkey. I’m not sure why, but even the other students call him it.
  • Heart Breaker– Heart breaker is another favorite. Not only is he the star of the basketball team, but he has great hair. He’s like the Asian version of Troy Bolton, and he kind of knows it. He has a rather large ego, and we find it hilarious.
  • Camera Boy– Camera boy takes the cell phone photography to an extreme. He often waits at the door for me to walk in so he can take my photo. I think he’s training for a very lucrative career as a paparazzi.
  • Harry Potter– Harry Potter is a Senior and he loves to participate. He comes up to the board EVERY TIME we call someone up whether we picked him or not. Really we just call him Harry Potter because he has glasses and since this is a boarding school and they call their principle Headmaster we just decided that we were obviously at Hogwarts and so we’ve given a lot of things Harry Potter nick names.
  • Himione–  Himione is a junior and we call him that because we were sticking with the Harry Potter theme and he’s really smart and raises his hand every time.
  • Superman– Superman gave himself his nick name. Every time you call on him he does the superman gesture. Like puts one fist in the air and looks up like he’s flying or something. It can be pretty hilarious.
  • Fred and George– or just “The Twins” they are two boys who often wear matching t-shirts. They are best friends. If they did that in the US they would be mocked into the next century, but it’s ok here apparently.

E.T.: Out-of-control pet causes mayhem, sadness.
TWILIGHT: Girl gives up college for stalker.
KARATE KID: Boy gains acceptance through violence.
JURASSIC PARK: Theme park’s grand opening pushed back.
HARRY POTTER: Celebrity Jock thinks rules don’t apply to him, is right.
THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS: Dangerous insurgent invades neighboring country.
: Wealthy man assaults the mentally ill.
: Peasant girl develops Stockholm Syndrome.
MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL: British comedy troupe inadvertently creates language lab for nerds.
RATATOUILLE: Vermin infest restaurant until it is forced to close doors.

Alright, So I’m not. And I may have stolen this idea from the brilliant mind of Sadies sister Sarah. meh details anyways, One time about 2 months ago I was surfing blogger blogs. and suddenly by some genius stroke of luck I ran accross my dear cousins blog. I was unaware he had a blog… this made me smile because I get alot of joy spying on people. Unfortunatly his blog is quite boring, which makes his title of “my crazy college life” VERY misleading. So today in hopes of getting him to write something mildly interesting I decided to leave him a comment, however unwilling to let him know I read his blog, I created a new alterego for myself… LORD VOLDEMORT. I even created an email address so I was allowed to comment on his blog. It is voldemorttheevilgenius@gmail.com . I actually think this is so great i might start telling people to send my emails here. Here is what people will recieve if they email me there…
