The Teacher Chronicles

I will be totally honest. When I made the decision to teach English abroad the thought of 'teaching' never crossed my mind. It sounds silly, but I'm being serious. I would tell my friends I would be, "Molding young minds," and give them my best Grinch face. While in Cambodia completing my TESOL training there were several … Continue reading The Teacher Chronicles

The Real MVP

BELINDA CAME TO HO CHI MINH FOR MY 23rd BIRTHDAY. It was by far one of the best birthday presents I have ever received. I was born in San Diego and grew up in Cerritos, CA. So when it was time to decide where to go for college (sophomore year  in college - I committed early) … Continue reading The Real MVP

The Instagrams That Never Made It Pt. 4

December was an absolutely insane month. We pretty much had visitors coming and going and it seemed as if I was busy every single second of every day for a month straight entertaining. I took a ton of photos but as you know I can't Instagram everything. There are rules people. Here are the unlucky ones. … Continue reading The Instagrams That Never Made It Pt. 4

Monkey Island

Let me begin by thanking Hurley for the photo and videos in this post – the photos that look professional and perfect are Hurley’s – the photos that look basic and boring are mine.  If  you are at all impressed by what you see (you will be) definitely take a moment and check out his … Continue reading Monkey Island

This is my last post about 2014, I promise. This was supposed to go up on the 1st of January but I was actually too hungover and tired to even look at my computer screen to press 'Publish.'  Over time, I figured I might as well add all of the ugly photos of 2014 to the … Continue reading ’14 (best & worst)

Two Days Of Fun

Too many districts. Two Days. Plus Teaching. May the odds be ever in your favor.        The morning after I arrived in Ho Chi Minh City, I went to lunch with the other Language Corps teachers to discover that HARDWELL (I love Hardwell. We share the same birthday. And I love his hair color) had DJ'd in … Continue reading Two Days Of Fun

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]
