For many things, getting started is the hardest part—take household chores and homework, for example. This is also true for maintaining routines; your first day at the gym is a lot harder to motivate than the 30th. It turns out that this is also the case for getting back into routines, such as writing! I was having a lot of fun trying to write every day back in August, but then I got busy and fell a few days behind.
Like I mentioned in a couple of previous posts, I’ve been working in Bangkok as a teacher since I arrived just over a month ago. In this post, I’ll describe my experiences teaching at a Thai private school up until now, and especially transitioning from one grade level to another. It’ll be a bit more focused on my immediate surroundings and routines, rather than broader observations about teaching and being a foreign teacher—I’ll save those thoughts for another post.
Chances are, you’ve been to a 7-Eleven or two in your life. If it was back home in Winnipeg, it was probably pretty small, maybe a little dirty, and more expensive than you’d like. Today, I’m here to tell you that your opinions are all wrong, or at the very least, that they don’t apply here in Bangkok, because 7-Eleven stores here are awesome. Whether you need a snack or a full meal, you’re covered.
