5 Simple Tips for Writing a Fan Letter in Korean
1. Use polite verb forms. Basically, Korean has two types of verb endings for polite speech style: 요(yo) and 다(da). When writing fan letters to celebrities, 요(yo) form is more appropriate than 다(da) form; 다(da) would sound too polite and formal for that kind of letter. 2. Use polite noun forms. In Korean, some nouns have entirely different forms for plain speech and honorific speech. To be polite, use 저(jeo) / 제(je) instead of 나(na) / 내(ne). 저(jeo) is the equivalent to ‘I, me’ in polite speech. 나(na) is the casual form of 저(jeo). 제(je) is the equivalent to ‘my’ in casual speech. 내(ne) is the casual form of 제(je). 3. But don’t be too formal and too polite. I’ve noticed that a lot of Korean learners tend to use the most polite noun forms when writing. Erring on the side of politeness is, of course, always good and safe, but in this fan letter, too-formal and too-polite nouns would sound a little awkward to native speakers (that is, the celebrities who will read your letter). Do not use 당신(dangshin). Instead, choose the right title for them, such as 오빠(oppa), 언니(unni), 누나(nuna), or 형(hyung), and use it. 4. Choose the perfect titles for celebrities. If the people you’re sending a letter to are older than you, you should use an appropriate title for them. There are four kinds of titles you would use. The most common titles are 오빠(oppa), 언니(unni), 누나(nuna), and 형(hyung). But what if you would be the same age as he/she? Adding the suffix씨 (ssi) to the name could be the appropriate solution in polite speech. When writing the letter with casual speech, you would attach 아 to the name ending in a consonant or 야 to the name ending with a vowel. In most cases, the given names are used with the titles we’ve just learned : First name + title. e.g. 세훈씨 Sehoon-ssi (from a male/female who is the same age as Sehoon in polite speech) 백현아 baekhyun-a (from a male/female who is the same age as Baekhyun in casual speech) 수호야 Suho-ya (from a male/female who is the same age as Suho in casual speech) 민호 오빠 Minho oppa (from a female younger than Minho) 티파니 누나 Tiffany nuna (from a male younger than Tiffany) 5. Attach 께 or 에게 to titles in the first sentence of a letter. The Korean equivalent of “to / dear” is “께(kke)” or “에게(ege)”. Though grammatically 께(kke) is the more honorific form than 에게(ege), there is no big difference between them. Just choose whichever you’d like to use. e.g. 중기 오빠께 / 중기 오빠에게 To Joongki oppa, Dear Joongki oppa (from a female younger than Joongki) Here is the entire example of a fan letter written in Korean. This letter was written to 송중기 (Joongki Song, a male Korean actor) by a younger female fan. For reference, I've made some blanks. You can freely adapt this template to suit your context, and fill in the blanks with the name of the celebrity you love! (중기 오빠)에게, To Joongki oppa, 안녕하세요. 저는 (싱가폴)에 살고 있는 (중기 오빠) 팬 (제시카)예요.

Children who grow up with pets become more sensitive and sympathetic adults!
Contact with animals gives children a greater sense of responsibility, enhances empathy and increases their understanding of the cycle of life. But Why? Several studies show how children who live with pets have a more developed emotional intelligence (EI), i.e. the ability of effectively understand, manage, and express one’s feelings and interpreting those of others. This is considered to be a key factor for a better quality of life. Unlike the intelligence quotient (IQ), which experts consider to be unalterable, the emotional intelligence can progress with time, through practice. Animals can help children do this. Here are the benefits our four-legged friends can have on our kids. 1. Empathy Children living with pets early learn to take care and feed another creature, initially by observing their parents, storing up all elements they will use in every future interaction with animals. Several studies demonstrate that children who own pets feel more empathy towards other people and animals. 2. Self-esteem Taking care of animals necessarily entails responsibilities, which give children a sense of personal fulfilment and help them feeling independent and competent. Nienke Endenburg and Ben Baarda, authors of the book The Waltham Book of Human–Animal Interaction, reports an experiment in which children with low self-esteem showed great progresses after they spent 9 months with a pet in their classroom. 3. Cognitive development Spending time with pets can ease the acquisition of language and improve oral competences in children. They don’t only play with animals, but also talk to them and often read stories in their presence. Moreover, “conversing” with animals helps children fighting stutter. 4. Stress reduction Animals offer a unique emotional support, and are able to weaken negative feelings. During a research children were asked to tell who they would talk to if they find themselves in a spot, and most of them mentioned their own pets. Effectively, we often feel unconditionally supported by them, whilst other people would judge and criticise certain situations. What do you think?
The Class of 2016: This Year's Funniest Graduation Caps
It's that time of year again - time for the senior classmen (and classwomen!) to say their goodbyes and celebrate their accomplishments as they finally receive their diplomas. Let's admit it. Graduation ceremonies, while understandably important, can get a little dull. There's a whole lot of speeches, a whole lot of sitting, and that obligatory watching-every-single-student-walk part. However, grads have gotten creative over the years, keeping things interesting with all sorts of gags - the simplest being the funny designs they put on their graduation caps! Graduation cap humor definitely reflects the times. Check out some of the funniest caps of the graduation season thus far, and then let me know: Are these SO 2016 or what?! "M-Morty, this is - belch - the first day of the r-rest of your life." Shout-out to all those cat ladies gettin' degrees to support their fur babies. Check out Sponge Bob Square Cap over here. This will forever be my favorite quote from 'The Office'. Because Lisa Simpson should be all of our education #goals. He-Man, you the real (heavily bedazzled) MVP.

Buy F 100 Classic Ford Truck Parts Online - Carolina-Classics
Buy Ford Truck Style Front Bed Panels by Carolina Classics We have a lot of customers who call wanting to know if they can get a N.O.S. ford f-100 front bed panel for a 1964-66 Ford F-100 pickup. As usual, to make sure you get the right part that you need and that we know what to send you, we have to ask a few questions. You'd be amazed at the amount of people who aren't sure what the have. For the 1964,1965,and 1966 Ford F-100 and F-250 the bed options were either a LONG or SHORT bed obviously, but also you'd either have a STEP SIDE ( known as a Flare Side), or a STYLE SIDE (sometimes referred to as a WIDE bed, or a FLEET SIDE). Just to clear things up, A STEP SIDE has smooth inner side panel, and big bulky fenders on the outside that cover the tires. The STYLE SIDE has smooth outer bed sides with body lines, but has INNER side panels that have what is called a WHEEL TUB spot welded to them that covers the tires. With that information out of the way, the answer to the ORIGINAL question asked is....NO! There may be a few New Old Stock front panels somewhere in the U. S.,but I for one donlt know where they would be. But... YES, we do sell an American made Reproduction that is made out of the original gauge steel, and has all the original features. You can purchase a FRONT PANEL by itself, or with a FRONT BED SILL, with a $40.00 saving when purchased together. Explore more about ford f-100 front bed panel: HONEST TRUTH, I just took an order for one no more than 25 minutes ago from a customer in Texas, and when I mentioned the FRONT SILL, he asked, what's a front sill, and do I really need one? Some people do, and some don't. If you think you don't and find out later you do, then you have to pay that additional $40.00 plus $42-$57 dollars for shipping depending on where you are ordering from. I'll fill you in on this much, if the front of your corrugated floor is rotted out, you probably do need one, because that's exactly where it's at. Right under that part of the floor. You need to check that part really well. It's kinda hard to check, because it has about 28-35 spot welds where the floor welds to it, and it has more than that  where the bottom lip of the Carolina Classics Ford F-100 Truck Style Side Front Bed header Panel  is spot welded to it. That's one of those spots on FORD F-100's that collects dirt and mud  and once it's in there it has no way to get out and lays there for years eating up the floor, the front bed sill, and the front bed panel. It's fair to say that MOST people do need it, but don't  take my word for it, check it. We even get asked what's the benefit of buying a NEW one, to repairing my old one. I'm sure you have ALL heard that (Time is money). And I understand that everyone doesn't have the money to buy a NEW one, but calculate how much time you'll have in your old one, that is IF you have the know how, and tools of the trade to be able to do it yourself. If NOT, and you are going to have the guy who's painting you truck to do it, just remember, even though he may be able to do it a little quicker and better than you could, but HIS time is money too.I have a lot of customers tell me how much they have in their finished truck that a restoration shop built for them. These numbers run from $ 80,000 to $221,000, and a very good part of that is for the Shop's labor charge......But I'm also aware that a man has to do what he can afford to do, so let's just get on to the removal of Ford Truck Style Front Bed Panels and the FRONT SILL. Getting the bed off the frame, and a place to store it INSIDE while all this work is going to be done is very helpful. Then, take some fairly coarse sandpaper and start lightly sanding in the area where the spot welds are and you'll soon see how well it is to see them. Once you find them all (or THINK you've found them all) take a center punch, and punch a recess as close to the center as you can on each one. Then get a drill bit (I usually use a 3/16" bit) just to make the first hole kind of quick in all of them, then I'll come back with a 3/8" bit to get the most of the spot weld out. Then you can start separating some of the welded joint, and disassemble most of what you want to repair or replace. For this task you may also need a thin chisel to break apart what the drill bit didn't get. Of course they make a bit specifically for drilling out spot welds, and it may be worth the money , but honestly I've never personally used one myself. Once the front bed panel has been separated from the lower front cross member, my next step would be using the same tactic on the front bed panel to remove it, then to do the same with the front sill (sometimes also referred to as a cross member) by separating it from the floor nearest to the front panel. After the front bed panel and the cross member have both been completely removed front the bed, you'll be able to assess whether you will need both components to make a clean and correct repair to your bed, or if you only need one or the other of the 2 components only. Remember, at Carolina Classics F-100s we manufacture and stock these 2 parts and you'll get very quick service by ordering from us. We will ship the parts the same day, so not to hold your project up any longer than need be (unless we are out of town attending a Swap Meet or Truck Show). I'm not to sure you need a lot of details on how to install the NEW front bed panel and front bed sill from Carolina Classics. In most restoration projects, it's taking it apart that's the LEARNING EXPERIENCE. Just use the reverse process in putting it back together. Oh' and if the front floor section of your bed need to be replaced, there's nothing available on the market yet. BUT, if you can find a buddy who has a bed in the same shape that he's NOT planning to use, you can go as far back as between the wheel tubs and cut out a cross section to be trimmed and used to repair the front 4-12" of your rusted floor. AND, you will need to drill some 5/16 or 3/8 inch holes down the 2 outer edges and the bottom edge of the front bed panel, so after lining it up for the install, and securely clamping it into position, you can plug weld through the holes. then when it's all finished, you can grind these down flat, and prep for paint to give you a super smooth, but rigid result.
