Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway visited Nome High School on September 28, 2016 with Young Invest AIB, in an attempt to help students who have dropped out of regular secondary education by learning methodology for success around the country. Various group exercises were held, including listening to students’ best and most successful experiences from school.

Fan Girls Go Crazy Over ASTRO Cha EunWoo’s Campus Pictures

[KpopMap article]

Recently, photos of ASTRO’s Cha EunWoo on campus has been circling around various netizen portal sites.

Cha EunWoo was admitted into the Sungkyunkwan University as an Acting and Arts major. Amidst his busy schedule, Cha EunWoo attended classes this week and fan girls took advantage of the time to get closer to their favorite idol.

In the photos, you can see EunWoo purchasing snacks at the store, taking pictures with his fellow students, and walking around campus in a clean cut white shirt with black jeans. With his beautiful visuals and incredible height, students couldn’t be helped but be mesmerized by their fellow student-idol.

Netizens reacted to the photos by saying, “I wish I could see him in person too”, “I saw him for real and he looks so handsome that he doesn’t seem real”, “Of course, the face completes the fashion”, “King of best visuals”, “I’m jealous of his classmates” and more.

Cha EunWoo has been busy with his various schedules on multiple variety shows, but finally found some time in between to keep up in class.

anonymous asked:

What do you think about the lack of awareness of mental illnesses in school? I know a lot of people who suffer from severe mental illnesses but force themselves to go to school and it is literally killing them. And if they do stay home, everyone thinks that they're faking it. The counsellors don't do anything and mental health isn't a priority at all. What do you think should happen to change this?

I dunno what to tell you…as a teacher there is only so much that I can personally do to help my students with things like this. On one hand, I have said before and I will say again, if you are seriously ill it is better for everyone for you to be home, and a day here or there is not that big of a deal. However, when students miss multiple consecutive days of school because of illnesses, I do my absolute best to catch them up but in all honesty every day that is missed means there are certain things that that student will just never learn from me. I have students who miss at least one day a week, and no matter what I do there are going to be gaps in their learning because I just…can’t catch them up AND continue the education of the 23 students who were at school and already learned whatever it is that kid missed. It’s hard to balance catching up one kid at the expense of everyone else, but I really try my best.

Yes, it sucks, it really does, but the truth is I DON’T know what to do about it. If the persistent illness is diagnosed and there’s supporting documentation, the student can get a 504 plan for accommodations, and that could help with teachers being flexible with deadlines or the amount of homework given, depending on the terms of the plan. If the illness is self-diagnosed, then unfortunately that’s not going to work, but no matter what I am begging you to always keep your teachers informed – if a student misses a bunch of days and never explains why, a teacher literally can’t do anything to help them, at all. Get your parents to contact the teacher/administration and explain the situation, it will help a lot. As far as policy changes and awareness go…I dunno, man…I’m doing my best to be good for my kids and help others I know do the same.

In an effort to be more transparent, I’ve decided to enable the “author portrait” next to my profile avatar here on this secondary blog. If you choose to follow my my primary blog @lifesalitbook, I ask that you not reblog some of the more personal posts, since I mostly use it as a place to vent out my emotions (though I often reblog non-MTG stuff there too).

As for re-introductions, my name is Vincent, and I am 23-years-old. I graduated from UCI studying English and Film & Media Studies (with a minor in Education), and I currently live at home with my dad and my mom. I am currently working at an afterschool program and helping students with their homework. I’ve been playing Magic for a little over 5 years now, and I’ll be honest, I spend way more time with this game than I do praying with God and reading His Word. I mostly enjoy Limited, though I’m always up for a game of Commander, as long as it doesn’t last for 4 hours. :P

I also want to say that even though I might disagree with you on a variety of things, I still care for you because you are a human being, made in the image of our Heavenly Creator. I don’t know everything about you or what you’ve gone through, so please call me out if I am making unwarranted judgments. I appreciate all of those who have spent the time to talk with me and gotten to know me over this past year I’ve been active in the Tumblr community, and I am very excited for what God has in store for us in the days to come.

It’s 2016. You need motivation? No, what you need is discipline. 

Force yourself to do things. Force yourself to get up early, make your bed, go get ready, and go. Force yourself to make plans for the day, and follow through with all those plans.
Force yourself to get to class early so you can look over the material. Force yourself to pay attention in class and turn off your phone or at least put it on silent. Stop texting your friends and going on Instagram in class. You are wasting your time, so why even bother going to class if your are going to be distracted? Be selfish. Stop giving your time to people that do not matter. YOUR TIME IS SO SO PRECIOUS. STOP WASTING IT!

This is the most important thing that you can do right now, take care of you and your education. Stop being distracted by the world and it’s never ending problems. This is the time that you need to put toward yourself because you are the greatest investment of your life.


EVERYDAY is a chance to wake up and give your 150%.
EXHAUST yourself. That is the only way to give your all. At the end of the day, you should be exhausted from working so much, from reading so much, from exercising so much.
Don’t go home because you are tired. Do whatever you need to get done and don’t come home until it’s all done. Stay late at the library. You feel tired? Good. That is how you know you are giving it your best. Go to the gym, and give your work out your all.
When you go home, you should feel like you are drained. You should feel like you have nothing left to give because you gave it your all. Because then, you can be proud of yourself and everything you have achieved.
Giving it your all is what matters. Give your all every single day. Discipline your mind and your body and you will become successful.

You fall back one day? That is O.K., try the next day. You are human, so accept your mistakes. However, love yourself enough to know that you will never give up working on yourself and your dreams.
THIS IS IT. THIS IS YOUR LIFE. Right now, no matter what circumstances we are all in, is what matters. Take advantage of today. Write down your dreams and force yourself to work toward them, one day at a time. 
THIS is your year. This is your life. One day at a time baby. One day at a time. Go ahead and don’t stop.


Starting on Monday, thousands of university students in Hong Kong have been gathering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Tamar Park (outside the government offices) to protest the National People’s Congress (NPC) of China’s decision to restrict the right to vote for Chief Executive, the city’s highest political leader in 2017.

Article 45 of the Basic Law (Hong Kong’s own mini-constitution implemented after the handover from Britain to China in 1997) states that the Chief Executive should be chosen by universal suffrage as an eventual goal. Time and time again the Communist Party of China have dodged/shut down any democratic progress. Last month the NPC announced that they would continue using the 1200-member committee, consisting of members loyal to the Communist Party, to vote for our CE. THIS IS ILLEGAL. THIS IS SHAM DEMOCRACY AND SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED.

The sit-in of university students belongs to a movement called ‘Occupy Central with Love and Peace’ and is led by The Hong Kong Federation of Students (schedule and declaration of the strike included). This act of civil disobedience consists of absolute non-violence. It consists of free public lectures offered by university professors and writers on topics like Orwell’s ‘1984’, history of Hong Kong’s struggle for democracy, Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s fight to end injustice etc etc. I was one of the students sitting in Tamar Park on Tuesday and Thursday and it was one of the most rewarding, educational and, I must emphasise, peaceful political activities I have ever witnessed.

On Friday, high school students led by the student group Scholarism joined in the protest. They marched to Civic Square, pleading for our current CE to come out of his offices and listen to their requests, just like he promised during his ‘campaign’ in 2012. More and more citizens joined in the protest after work.

The police started cutting off access to Civic Square, which is a publicly owned area. They used shields to form a blockade against the protestors and started pushing them back. When people resisted with umbrellas, they started using clubs and pepper spray on the protestors, who started putting both of their hands up to show they are unarmed. Many students who managed to rush in Civic Square are arrested, including the leader of Scholarism. Many of them have visible injuries caused by police brutality and some of them still haven’t been released from police custody.

THE FIGHT IS STIL GOING ON. PEOPLE ARE STILL CROWDING OUTSIDE CIVIC SQUARE AND TAMAR. Resources are running thin and the police are still threatening violence. Some of my friends are at the protest and they are continuing the struggle despite the risks. It is predicted that the police will escalate their brutality with tear gas, more pepper spray and water cannons against innocent, peaceful protestors, many of them teenagers.

I know tumblr is a US-centric place but PLEASE PLEASE SPARE A SECOND TO REBLOG THIS POST. Hong Kong is a tiny city. We are anything but a formidable force in international politics. The only thing we can do is raise awareness among the world and force our corrupt government to answer to our protests.

How to Succeed at School

1. Get into the habit of being an early riser. We can all benefit from having a little bit of extra time in the morning. It reduces stress, helps to prevent you from forgetting things, and stops that crazy morning rush.

2. Deliberately decide to tune out distractions. Turn off the TV, social media, your phone, and hide away when you need to get work done.

3. Prepare for the next day the night before. Check off your mental to-do list and prepare for the next day before you go to bed. If possible, choose your clothes, find your books, pack your bag, and so on.

4. Prioritise being organized. For example, it often helps to use an agenda to stay on track with assignments and homework.

5. Go to bed at a reasonable time. A good night’s sleep is one of the best tips for learning, remembering and doing well at school.

6. Make reading one of your hobbies. Research indicates that reading is one of the best ways for developing language skills and building a strong vocabulary.

7. Eat well. A protein breakfast and balanced meals help sustain your energy throughout the day, and is essential for building a healthy brain.

8. Get fresh air and exercise. This helps with mental alertness, concentration, an efficient memory and a positive mood.

Planning for a Deadline

Procrastination is bad. Leaving 90% of the work until the last 25% of the time you have is also bad. 

Here’s an example given for an assignment/essay given a 20-day deadline. 

Days 1-5

  • Understand the assignment
    • This includes reading the rubric, and assigned texts. 
  • Select a specific topic
    • Background research should be done.
  • Write a flexible thesis statement based on selected topic

Days 5-10

  • Plan research
    • Decide sources (books, magazines, documentaries, etc.) you’ll use.
  • Start research
    • Individually evaluate sources.
    • Keep all research organized.

Days 10-15

  • Write the first draft
    • If you want an instructor to review your work, now is the time.
  • Conduct additional research as necessary.

Days 15-20

  • Write the final draft
  • Revise, and re-write
  • Save more than one copy, hand in assignment.
