I moved to Vietnam. | Before that, I hung out with Matt Kurtz, Heidi, etc. Then, hung out with Mike Kurtz and others at The Salvation Army Gresham Corps. These are the people I hung out before exiting America on Tuesday, the 27th of November of 2012. It was extremely difficult to leave as I was hanging out with people that I love. During my last five days in America, I thought a lot about everything and yet I was already committed to moving to Vietnam forever. Ironically, that followed with my first five days in Vietnam which were somewhat good until I was fired on the sixth day, that is Tuesday morning around 07:00 AM ICT or something like that which was Monday night in Oregon time (AKA the 7th day from the previous Tuesday). I ended up returning to the United States of America (USA) in November of 2017, five years later, 2012-2017, but I was really intending to be in Vietnam for the rest of my life.

2012-11-01 - Thursday - 01:19 AM - Google Chat - Brent Groth on our Mea Omnia website we were building that year: "We just had all of our themes and plugins, and now they are gone. Is Godaddys strategy to have us figure this out on our own. Did they magically take our stuff away again on purpose. If so, it would be great if you could go ahead with the Filezilla, and just do this, and keep GoDaddy just for our server purposes." | 04:38 PM | Filezilla | Mea Omnia

2012-11-03 - Saturday - 12:25 AM - Google Email - I replied to Brent Groth: "Popular youtube videos usually starts with commercials. That means commercials are outsourcing. They have to do their best to find and force people to watch their ads. They are also getting better at targeting audiences which can mean that if I like cars then I might run into a car commercial right before watching a video on youtube."
2012-11-04 - Sunday - 08:21 PM - Email Chat - I replied to Brent Groth: "You told me in October that you have been to our database. But if you have never got past this tool button, then it means that you have never actually been to our database before in dedicated......... you went into Plesk.... and then what did you do after that? after you went into Plesk, you click on just servers or database servers?"
2012-11-05 - Monday - 03:53 PM - Email Chat - I replied to Brent Groth: "Our Mea database is not our database. Because I remember importing our Mea database into our newer wordpress_b database............ because when I installed our wordpress builder to our site, it automatically added our new empty database with it..... it is a two for one deal..... you get a free database when you install wordpress.... so wordpress_b is that new empty database for our builder....... but then I stuck in our old Mea database into that new wordpress_b empty database.... now our new empty wordpress_b database has stuff in it."

Donald Trump - You're Fired
2012-11-23 - Friday - 12:05 PM - Joy Email | 04:04 PM | 04:47 PM - Booking My Flight | Cheap-O-Air | $793.20 USD Total. I worked for my dad in Hillsboro at a house. Raked leaves for a few hours. Rode my bike there. Then drove my bike to the Max Train to Portland. I then drove the rest of the way to Vancouver, WA. Matt & Heidi were married & were also moving out of their parents home as well. A bitter goodbye to Lorrie Davis & to the other Salvation Army friends of mine. | Hitchcock - I didn't see this yet. | 05:42 PM - Google Chat - I was telling Joy Sanchez that I got my visa and that I would be arriving in Hanoi around 12:00 PM ICT Thursday, that is in six days. I added: "Please don't get mad if I get you fired." Joy: "See, God finds a way.... making your dream come true." I said had $500 leftover that I was bringing with me to Vietnam. She said I should buy her chocolate. I ended up not doing that. Joy said that I might want to visit the Philippines during Tet in February 2013. I ended up not doing that. I asked if I should bring a pillow. Oh, so bulky. Joy said she was crying because she was so happy. She said she might be able to come to the airport to meet me. That didn't happen. She also was thinking that we could do something for Christmas but she then ended up going back to the Philippines around that time.

I went off with Mike Kurtz, the older brother of Matt, probably on this Saturday or sometime before Sunday the 25th. I slept on Mike's couch and played some games. I watched this Weird Al movie where he talks cockroaches I think. Mike had people over Sunday or Monday night either because I was there or coincidentally. Maybe it was Saturday night. We played boards games or just one game that I remember was Settlers. I was talking to a few guys or one former camper of ours from Camp Kuratli 2007-2008.
