    Full circle - back on the KSR -jobless and aimless!

    I find myself back on the good 'ol Ko San Rd now - the parody of the failed Tefl teacher.

    Fired from my job the other day - a blessing in disguise no doubt.


    What the fuck to do now though?

    go back to England or scrape it through the last of my money and find another bottom level teaching job - don't think I could face the second option.

    I think my 'Spey Royal' antics of last week probably didn't do me any favours and maybe my general posts here and on the Ajarn (under different names) may have played a part also - who knows -perhaps I can find out in time.


    KSR it is - I'm staying in a 150B guest house - fucking great!

    Fuck on a stick - don't even have a return plane ticket as a bail out although I guess I could just about scrape one together if the push came to shove.


    No way am I ever doing the Tefl shite again in Thailand - this is my second failed attempt at it (depending on how you determine failure) - I think it's back to UK soon to make it on the horses.

    Where is Torbek?

    EFL can be tough in LOS.

    I left LOS 5 years ago on a cash advance from a Credit Card. Partly by choice; partly because of a minor medical problem that came without warning.

    If I ever return to LOS to TEFL, I'll keep 2,000 USD in the hole to get out for a plane ticket back to the US or to another country.

    It's a tough gig.

    But well worth the experience.

    Do you mean like teaching or like Thailand - both I guess.

    I like Thailand and still do and I DID like teaching before I came here but now I hate it.

    the room's not that bad really - it does have a window that opens to the outside (ie:not a corridor) - took a bit of finding though.


    there's some real shit-holes round here.

    No luxuries really - but at least I'm not getting stared at all the time by the freak posse out in Rangsit.

    making a living and licing here takes some getting used to. There are ups and downs like anywahere else you'll go. Maybe here there's no safety net of friends and family. Can make it tougher. Emotionally and financially. Tought it out tqake another shit job and keep lookin' or bail. Again, the same all over the world. Go home and there's no where to bail to.
    I tend to "walk the edge" and have found myself ass-out a few times n the past. Stick with it, and find your niche. Maybe it ain't here; maybe it is. You're the only one that can make that call, right?
    What are you gonna do?

    FF:

    Well my niche is definitely NOT doing Tefl here - even if I had a decent tefl job I'd still be pissed off with it soon enough.

    Going back home straight away doesn't appeal that much either but I guess I'll have to do it soon enough - the next few days will clarify my financial positon at least.


    I need a more solid project to get on with and it's not going to happen for me in Thailand at this moment - the only way I can realistically earn money in TL is by doing Tefl so it's time to move on I reckon.

    I tried it for a week or two, Think if I had to do that I'd be on the next thing smokin' back the USA.
    There are other ways to survive here but with little or no change in your pocket it damn near impossible to make it long enough to find that other "niche." I've gone back a couple of times just to earn some cash for room to maneuver. I still struggle. But am beginning to see some light waaaaay down there at the end of the tunnel. Still enjoy the ride though.

    Look in your other thread. It hardly needs explaining. It seems that you're basically an ill-disciplined drunk who expects to get by without putting any effort in.

    Good luck.

    I quite like his posts on here usually, and I'm sure he's a good laugh in person too. It just seems that he can't hold down a job.
