After 24 years of living in Ohio I decided to up and move to Korea! I am a preschool teacher at PSA. I love working with the kids even though sometimes they drive me insane! They still bring so much happiness into my life.
My intentions are to use this blog to recount my many adventures in Korea and hopefully give my loved ones an insight into my life. But who knows where this might actually go... : )
Edit: I've been in Korea for officially a year... that ish is cray cray... lol
One of my students wrote this for me. It basically says “Ashley Teacher I like you. Ashley teacher I love you. Go to America (and) have fun weeks. And play (with) mommy and see (her). ” she’s only 5 years old and wrote this by herself… I teared up. She’s so unselfish and caring. Most of my kids don’t want me to go to America but she wants me to go and see my mom. ❤️❤️❤️ #cute #sosweet #esl #teacher #loved #caring

I have the Talk To Me in Korean book yooo it’s legit
- Receptionist: Don't you feel like your generation is just lazy?
- Me: Lazy? I'd say apathetic.
- Receptionist: Isn't it the same?
- Me: No. My generation is criticized and toiled with, and I don't see why not - just turn on the TV and watch what they're feeding us. But my generation is not lazy. My generation fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. My generation fought for womens rights in a fury that hadn't been seen since the 19th Amendment. My generation got our first black President elected. My generation fought for Gay rights for the first time in American history. And with all that, we are apathetic, and that's because things aren't going to be better for us down the road. We are the first generation expected to make less than our parents. We are the first generation to see America lose its status as a super power. We've lived through the worst economic times since the Great Depression, and are forced to take out thousands of dollars in student loans at the same time, all while our college degrees slowly turn into a highschool diploma. We've done plenty, and expect nothing. So no, I wouldn't say we're lazy, just apathetic.
