A story of pain, strength, and bliss. And one of a (seemingly endless) collection of stories entitled: Brenna’s continued, and everlasting obsession with Chiang Mai. For those of you who are keeping track…This is trip number five! Oh Chiang Mai! Let me count the ways I love thee! So it is 6am on a cold (relatively) morning and Bri and I are hauling our things up the … Continue reading Out With The Old, In With The New (Kind of)
And other good things that have happened. (Sorry I don’t have many pictures to accompany this….) Like the previously mentioned rainbow has promised: things are looking up. So let’s start this post with the numerous ways the teacher Boo is killing it. Firstly. I know all the names of all my fourth graders. Fuck yes. Okay, but actually for those who don’t know. Thai nicknames … Continue reading I Got Wifi In My Apartment!
This is what you’ve all been waiting for! I know! So because I have been distracted going to Pattaya and writing about Pattaya, and also the whole contract issue, I know I brushed over a lot of the details about my new home. So let’s dive in, shall we? I want to start out by saying that I think a lot of my happiness comes from the … Continue reading A Bit About Phrae
Alright! We can make it through these posts, Brenna! Quick update: I know I am slacking on the blogging front. But honestly it’s because of the very, very spotty wifi at the apartment in my new city. Yes, folks I am here and getting situated. I promise to regale you with all the juicy details as soon as I get through the rest of orientation. I got to keep … Continue reading Oh My, Chiang Mai!
So I am currently homeless and living out of my car. Okay. That’s not 100% true. But. I am a bit displaced. So the month or so leading up to going to Thailand I have been working like a maniac at the LA County Fair doing hennas for snap-chatting teenagers and wine-drunk adults. See?! Kay I actually do kind of love my job. But the 12 hour … Continue reading Time Before Thailand
Day 1 means the day that we got there. If you recall, there was a lot of Brenna staying awake all night and not a lot of things getting done. So post nap, I am awake at the same time as Sarah and Austin and we set off into the city. Agenda? None. So turns out our new awesome hostel is a decent distance from … Continue reading Chiang Mai Day 1
The plot of LOST is happening in my country. My lovely cousin Bridget (;)) asked about MH370 and I guess it’s a pretty big deal so I should mention something in this post, while I am listening Disney music. I got back from my weekend in KL to 2 very anxious people. The first was Lenny’s mother, who had friended me on Facebook, and was panicked … Continue reading Stuff Is Happening In Malaysia
It is thursday and I am on my way to KL for the 3rd weekend in a row. After dragging my whole weekend backpack to my two classes on thursday morning (not even phased by the odd looks anymore), and gotten on the hour bus ride (something I have grown very accustomed to) I found myself in Pudu Sentral KL with 3 other Americans. Now, why … Continue reading Muzik in Kuala Lumpur: FMFA Day #1
So I haven’t posted for several days! This is probably because I was planning for Future Music Festival Asia 2014 and subsequently attending, leading to much excitement and anxiety. Long stories and posts are on the way, folks. In the mean time, enjoy this photoshop job. Continue reading FMFA 2014
I saw a monkey! This is a testament to where I live. Today I saw a whole flock of monkeys running across the road. I was just riding the bus, minding my own business, and there were a half dozen monkeys just running across the road. Now this is really something that wouldn’t happen in the U.S. No I don’t have a picture, because as I explained earlier. I … Continue reading Malaysia For The Win
