College Educated, TESOL Certificated

This week I felt a billion times busier, more tired and just a teensy bit homesick...but I'll talk about that later. Overall the week fleeeeew by. Monday morning's vietnamese lesson was about 'going to the market.' So Hien, being the excellent teacher she is put us in taxis and we set out to one of … Continue reading College Educated, TESOL Certificated

“Vietnam group: Go Fuck Yourselves”

After a fantastic fucking weekend in Sihanoukville it was FINALLY time to head to Nam. Thuper exciting. But sad as well. Cambodia started to feel like home. Which are words I never believed I would say.  I would say it's more so home because of the people...not the physical building. Yech. But I digress. The plan was … Continue reading “Vietnam group: Go Fuck Yourselves”

Marady (Hell Hole) Hotel

I admit -- maybe I should not have written this when I wasn't hANGRY. oh well. I guess this is where I bitch about Phnom Penh. Not necessarily Phnom Penh but where I am staying in Phnom Penh. The Marady hotel sucks. Conveniently located next to a contaminated river that has white foam -- why … Continue reading Marady (Hell Hole) Hotel

The Instagrams That Never Made It — Pt. 2

This weeks "Grams That Never Made It" are from the weekend excursion to Sihanoukville and my first week and weekend in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It's been weird, gueyz. Good weird though. I had to practice serious self control because I wanted to Instagram about 15 photos  from Sihanoukville. Every photo was perfect, blue, … Continue reading The Instagrams That Never Made It — Pt. 2

You Can’t Sihanoukville With Us [Pt. 2]

No sleep no problem (referring to the spider that tried to eat Meg and I our first night in Sihanoukville) when I get to spend an entire day alternating between a boat and a beach. After an hour and a half boat ride, we made it to [Ishy Named] Turtle Island! We had the option … Continue reading You Can’t Sihanoukville With Us [Pt. 2]

You Can’t Sihanoukville With Us [Pt. 1]

Woke up at the crack of dawn to get to the beach before 12.  That's that shit I do like. This particular weekends excursion? The and b-e-a-utiful city of Sihanoukville. The plan for those who were scuba diving was to be on the bus on Friday at 5am. Everyone else needed to be ready to … Continue reading You Can’t Sihanoukville With Us [Pt. 1]

Temples N’ Shit

I wouuuuuuld enjoy going to ancient and holy temples if they didn't have so many damn rules.  Why do I have to cover my knees and shoulders? What if I just wear homely clothing? I mean, I still like experiencing the temples because it's amazing to see history in real time, like how lucky am I? … Continue reading Temples N’ Shit

The Instagrams That Never Made It — PART 1

This is not an original idea. I have definitely seen this done before, but I can't remember where so sowwy, can't give credit where credit is due. Anyway, whenever it's time for me to pick an Instagram I struggle to decide which photo to choose. I'm not one of those people to post multiple photos … Continue reading The Instagrams That Never Made It — PART 1

Like, Where The Hell Are We?

I was forced to take a Phonology (meh) and Grammar test (booOooOoo) to pass my TESOL course/get on the bus to Siem Reap to see some of Cambodia’s most famous temples. On our way to Siem Reap, we stopped in a little town called Spider Village.  Initially, I openly talked about how I was not … Continue reading Like, Where The Hell Are We?

TESOL Shmeshmol

Yoooo Cambodia so far has been no vacation. The first week has been a full 40 hour work week to say the least....so sorry that this won't be as entertaining (unless you're a family member) as my other posts. Monday morning we started training to get our TESOL certificates.  Class begins at 9 and our last … Continue reading TESOL Shmeshmol
