Suicide of bullied Japan students
Wednesday. 11.15.06 7:55 pm
Two kids in Japan committed suicide over the weekend because they were being bullied in school. The boy was 14 and the girl was 12. As of August this makes a total of 5 suicides of related nature.
The girl jumped from the eighth floor because she was being bullied about her height. The hung himself after his classmates tried to take money from him. Additionally a head teacher has been found hanged in a forest after he was criticised over his response to an extortion incident involving a pupil at his school.
Last week several school children wrote to the education minister threatening to kill themselves.

Today was such a Marvelous Day
!!! I actually had some GREAT responses from College students. I thought that I MUST share them with you..
1. (student) Who do I ask for a letter of recommendation?
(worker) You can ask your teacher or counselor?
(student) Do I walk up to them and ASK them?
2. (student) I have a complaint and I want to speak with the Dean.
(worker) Ok, well let me make an appointment for you. What time can you come in?
(student) I dont know. I have to check with my mom to see when she is availiable.
3. (student) You said I need TWO letters of recommendation?
(student) Well my sister wrote one. Who do I ask for the other one??
4. (me) I am sorry but I cannot accept your letter of recommendation.
(student) Why not??!
(me) Because, you cannot write a letter recommendation for yourself.

Alot has happened but I have been too busy to blog! Well, just to be brief... the electricity turned off at our campus today. It was great! I came into work to find everyone standing outside. I thought maybe it was an early morning fire drill.... WRONG!! The whole campus lost power. Classes were getting canceled and we did not know if they were going to be sending us home or not. I thought, wow this is GREAT!!
Well, they did not cancel work today but they did tell us we can go home and come back at 12 noon to report back and begin working. What a bummer. So I went to pick up my daughter and we went to have a nice breakfast and went to FRYS electronics store to walk around... stopped by the credit union then took her home. Since it was only 11:30 I thought I would sneak back into the building.. ( the power was back on at 10:30 but the boss said 12 noon and I am only trying to obey orders) and took a nap in the air conditioned room for 30 minutes. Boy was it nice... ahhhh... What a wonderful monday!!!
