I decided to stop reblogging ferry posts btw because I feel like a lot of the information being pushed out on news sites keep being proven wrong. Even when I was switching through channels at the gym, all the information was conflicting.

I would like to say that I do appreciate those of you that are trying to keep people in the loop. It must be difficult looking for information.

White missionaries are in our small little town. How did you find this place?

Please leave and don’t talk to me.

I have cousins that are missionaries (they aren’t white though), so I know first-hand how useless they are.

Reblog if a teacher has ever

Bullied you, talked to you like you were stupid, , made you feel uncomfortable, offended you, harassed you, made you feel like you were dumb, made fun of you, ignored you, or talked down to you

Im trying to prove a point to my father that teachers can be as hurtful as the students

Looking back, I want to say yes, but now that I am a teacher I also feel like I might have misunderstood some situations. I’m not saying that for all of them, but sometimes being a teacher is not a very fun job.

I decided to buy some chocolate on my way home. While I was checking out, one of my students popped into the store. She immediately turned to the students outside to loudly inform them what I was buying. The owner was laughing about it. Welcome to a small glimpse of how little privacy I have. I would say that this is the downside of living 5 minutes from school, but it is also not uncommon for me to run into my students in Guri or Seoul. I cannot escape these nosy little munchkins.

The more I read about the ferry sinking, the more emotional I get about it. The number missing is so high because they told the students to stay put in the ship. There is also a rumor going around that they denied the help of the US Navy to help with the diving efforts. It is all just maddening. I can’t even begin to imagine how the parents must feel.

YG has their own little festival thing with Lady Gaga and others this year and the tickets go on sale apparently in 20 minutes. It is for sale via Yes24 though, who I despise using.

The high schoolers have multiplied at my gym. They have a little pack now.

Also, this older man approached me today. I was right in the middle of sets. He physically stood so I couldn’t use the machine anymore. He then started trying to question me on where I was living and other personal information. I made the mistake of answering in Korean at first to be nice, so he didn’t believe me when I told him that I couldn’t speak it later. My friend who is 6’5” and bigger came up to try and shake him, but he wouldn’t leave. When I finally forced him away by using the machine and hitting him, he just followed us around staring at us.

I can’t decide if he was drunk or if he just had something off.

More than 100 missing as ferry sinks off the coast of South Korea
More than 100 people were still unaccounted for as efforts continued to rescue passengers aboard a South Korean ferry that sank off the country’s south-west coast on Wednesday morning.
Dozens of coastguard and navy vessels were battling to rescue passengers, including 325 high school pupils and their teachers. A major rescue operation is now underway involving more than 30 coastguard and military ships, as well as about a dozen helicopters.
Officials said two of the ship’s 476 passengers, which included more than 300 children, had been confirmed dead but there were fears that many passengers may have been trapped inside the vessel as it listed and sank. Full story

I was just thinking about how tragic it would be if something was to happen on a class trip, because that is a 1/3 of a school. This is terrible. :/
