TEFL in Thailand

Whoa! I did it again 🙂

I know that it’s been over a month since my last entry, but I have (somewhat) a good reason. These TEFL classes overseas are grueling!

The sights are at least nice, but that is not the main reason for my visit to Koh Samui, Thailand 🙂

I have mentioned several posts ago that I would love the opportunity to teach overseas and now I am learning how to teach – while overseas.

The class is normally a month long, but for this month we only have 3 weeks. And the first week….intense is an understatement!

I do like how active and hands on the course is though. It’s just so much information at once! It’s taking me some time to really process all that I am learning. And on top of being in a different country – that part hadn’t dawned on me until a few days ago!

I would love to stay in Thailand a bit longer. At least until the end of the year, but since I do not have a BA, my options of truly teaching overseas are limited. So now I’m thinking of giving Spain or Cambodia a try, or head back to the states and teach privately.

I also had a thought of volunteering once a week somewhere back home too. To gain some teaching experience and a demo portfolio for those interested in me privately tutoring them.

Also, I have been interviewing via Skype for online jobs too. I have one more interview this Monday (or technically Tuesday because of the time zone – lol).

First, I have to pass this TEFL course! It’s either a pass or fail system, with a chance to have a merit attached to your pass status.

So wish me luck everyone and I’ll see you soon!

(currently working on a few one shots to share with you all in the next few days)

Christmases Without You

Another Christmas without you.
And I’m still wondering what to do.
Or how I manage to make it through.

I find myself missing you at the oddest times.

Not when when I’m angry at people who shop because their social medias told them to do so.

Never when I am lashing out at someone who thought that I’d lay down and let them come over me first with their fucking nonsense.

It’s always when everything around me is going just right. When the sun is shining so damn bright that I find myself happy with life.

The feeling of bliss is then followed with despair, because I feel guilty for living so well.

Without you here.

I try to console myself with thoughts of you watching over me, saving me from my inner struggles, and steering the stellar serendipities straight my way.

That only lasts temporarily.

Until I remember that I still have to spend yet another Christmas without you.
