Emigration @ Sunday, March 17, 2013

During a spelling test back when I was in middle school back in the states, I recall the words 'emigration' and 'immigration' was on the test that morning. It was a sunny day, during summer or early autumn. Mr S our teacher was away that day. We had a sub, Mr W, who said that immigration and emigration was the same thing. XD I don't remember what our response was, but Mr S said that's why Mr W "teaches" gym. And in the while delivering the most known line from 'School of Rock': Those that can't do, teach, and those that can't teach... teach gym.

Mr S was a great guy, while he was as easily distracted as I was (hence perhaps not the most efficient teacher) he was pretty cool. Popular with the kids, had personality, and he knew everything random. He called it general knowledge, things like the capital of each country and state, the number of oceans in the x sea, national airports and all the states of Africa and the US. He could even list the later in alphabetical order, and point most of them out on an unmarked map. 

*Insert between paragraph 1 & 2* - What would Hector say being a gym teacher? Being the nice guy he is he doesn't tease. He's also very knowledgeable and is able to answer every question I've asked, and I've asked quite a few. Including 'where do white rabbits come from?' The only thing he's ever been stuck on is who Issac Newton is. But that's ok, as not everyone knowns, namely those who skipped science classes. Oh and Hector teaches subjects other than gym, so he's not your typical gym teacher. Back to the question, Hector would say that emigration is the same as immigration but from the perspective of the country of origin, so Mr W wasn't completely wrong. :P

And that's what comes to mind when I think of imm/emigration. So what exactly was my point? Well Google Reader is closing down :( and no it's not the same as when everyone said fb was closing down/charging memberships or when citethisforme decided not to be free anymore.

Emigration in simple terms can be defined as moving out. From Google Reader to somewhere new. I'll be using Bloglovin' (what happened to the g?). It only takes a moment to import all your blogs. Here's the link - to import.
