Grandpa,I like the idea. ^_^ It’ll make things a lot easier.Well, the guest house is a large house in the Mapo-gu district. (See attached picture for the districts of Seoul) It has the normal gate outside (I’ll send pictures once I grab some more batteries for the camera.) There are two gates: a car gate and a door gate. Then, there’s a little area outside with flower bushes and some tables and chairs to sit down. When you go inside, you have the shoe room (it’s kinda like a foyer), the living room common area and some stairs. On the left is the door to one of the dormitory style rooms (it has 10 beds), on the right is another dormitory style room (it has six beds. That’s where I’m staying, but there’s no one else in the room with me.) front left is the kitchen, front is the restroom and the stairs.The room is small, but neat, with three sets of bunk beds complete with pillows, sheets, blankets, and a towel. They have lockers for your stuff, and each room is digitally locked. (You put in a passcode to get in.) The doors auto lock when you shut them.The bathroom is the most interesting thing. It’s one room, with a tile floor and a drain. The shower has no tub or anything, so if you take a shower, it’s all on the same floor. (I’ll take a picture. It’s hard to explain.) I know now why they recommend sandals for the bathroom, as there are two sets of ‘bathroom slippers’ at the door. (You wear them whenever you use the restroom.) They’re specifically made for the bathroom, so they’re non-slip.Everyone’s been really nice. After I e-mailed you, I met some of the other people who are staying here. They’re pretty cool. A lot of them are Americans too.I shouldn’t have issues with money. Most everything is included in the tuition, and they’re taking us grocery shopping at the end of orientation (Only one meal is included per day.)However, it’s 0800 and I need to find some food. ^_^ I’ll update you later (hopefully with pictures).Love ya,Brooke
I have been waiting all year to post this.
This has been in my queue for months.
I missed it last year and I vowed that would NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.YES
omg i didnt reblog this last year!
I just realised: THATS WILLIAM SHATNER!
Omfg ok I literally just came on Tumblr to find this to reblog and it was the first post that loaded on my dash that is weird af ok
YESEvery year :)
Yesterday my mom posted a picture on Facebook of my 5 year old brother Sam wearing a pair of shoes he picked out for his first day of preschool.
She explained to him in the store that they were really made for girls. Sam then told her that he didn’t care and that “ninjas can wear pink shoes too.”
Sam went to preschool and got several compliments on his new shoes. Not one kid said anything negative toward him about it.
However, my mom received about 20 comments on the photo from various family members saying how “wrong” it is and how “things like this will affect him socially” and, put most eloquently by my great aunt, “that shit will turn him gay.”
My mom then deleted the photo and told Sam that he can wear whatever he wants to preschool, that it’s his decision. If he wants to wear pink shoes, he can wear pink shoes.
Sam then explained to her that he didn’t like them because they were pink, he liked them because they were “made out of zebras” and zebras are his favorite animal :)
What does it say about society when a group of adults could stand to take a lesson in humanity from a class of preschoolers?Words cannot express how happy this makes me.
Omg forever reblog
