Well, Hello my loyal gypsy gypsy readers!
It’s been over a year since I had gypsy gypsy adventure stories to titillate you all with. But do not fear any longer, because this gypsy is heading out again. To my favorite area of the world, in fact.
Yep, that’s right. I am actually going BACK to spend MORE time in a country I have ALREADY BEEN TO!
What kind of gypsy behavior is this? *smh*
Actually, I believe that it is not really about WHERE you are going, but the WAY in which you go there. So. I will actually be teaching English. I am doing the very typical post-grad “flee the country” behavior because I now have a college degree and no idea what I want to do with it.
After about 2 months of waiting for the program to tell me where/when/how/why I would be in Thailand. I finally got the info.
My school is called Thepnaree School. It’s in Sungmen, Phrae–which is apparently up north, semi-close to Chiang Mai. And I believe the city was described as “mostly substance farmers” which I chose to mean “in the middle of fucking nowhere”
That’s not even sarcasm, I swear. I was actually surprisingly pleased when I heard I would kind of be out in the middle of nowhere.
I wasn’t really sure what the experience in Thailand would be like. Would I be running around crazy like when I was studying in Malaysia? Realistically, I feel like I will be doing a bit of that. But it’s probably a good message from the universe that I was placed here so I can focus on teaching and not on being crazy.
See I’ve matured a bit.
This is one of the pictures they sent to me of my school. It looks gorgeous with the pink flowers.
And these are probably the kids I’m going to be teaching.
I am so excited!
Honestly, I’ve been through a lot in the past 2 years. And even though I’m returning to Southeast Asia, I seriously feel like I’m a different person now. It’s exciting and scary to think about all the things that are going to happen. I remember feeling like fate brought me to Malaysia when it did, and though it’s not quite fate and more a “last resort” mentality that brought me back right now (lol), I feel like there’s a little bit of that at play this time.
So expect more posts my loyal gypsy readers! And actually expect more videos. Because I mean, I have a degree in documentary filmmaking now so I should at least pretend I have some sort of video-making skills. (Even though all I really have is the fancy vocabulary necessary to explain why I really really love The Jinx on HBO)
