A Primitive Technology Gif I found on the Internet

When I read this article titled “I Don’t Know How to Waste Time on the Internet Anymore” on Facebook, I snorted out loud at my office, because all I do on the Internet is wasting time.

Technically, I am paid to waste time on the Internet. You see, I am working as a teaching assistant in a primary school, and I am often asked to cover for other teachers a few lessons a week. In those lessons, you need to keep the class entertained.

When the school year started, I asked kids to keep quiet and do their homework in these lessons. Understandably, all these 6-to-12-year-olds did were making noises and doing anything but their homework.

One day I was watching YouTube at my home again. A lightbulb popped up — if I am going to watch these videos again and again anyway, why don’t I choose the ones with clean language and play them during these lessons?

I quickly put together a playlist with the most original name ever: school.
