Was teaching at the Leaf Pagoda, in the Thu Duc District, at some coffee shops, with the Fellowship Youth Group (FYG), at a high school in the Tan Binh District. I was living in the Tan Phu District.
Volunteer Friends For Street Children
2013-10-02 - Wednesday - 02:29 AM - An ffscvn emailed me: "Can you teach English for our students for free because they are all disadvantage students. And Can you please arrange an appointment at our office at 140/4 Vo Thi Sau Ward 8, D3 for more details." I went for an interview, I think but they didn't accept me. I guess, they didn't like me or something.
Moving to Tan Phu
2013-10-02 - Wednesday - 03:53 AM - Võ Thanh Phương Facebook messaged me: "I and my friends will help you tomorrow. We are going in there and get u some stuff." I moved in with him and two other Vietnamese guys for October of 2013. Back on Monday, the 30th of September, concerning my work schedule, I wrote: "I am busy after 2 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays. I am busy 5 - 7 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. I teach for free at a pagoda in district 12 on Saturdays and Sundays around 7 AM - 1 PM. I am busy after 6 PM on Mondays. I am free at other times. Let me know if there are more people who want to join Oatmeal English. We can talk more about scheduling classes later." 05:57 PM: "A friend (Kendy Long Góc Tối) who seems to be helping with finding students for Oatmeal English." On Sunday, the 29th of September, at 10:46 PM, I wrote about my Tan Phu Apartment Address: "553/2/19 Lũy Bán Bích, Phú Thạnh, Q.Tân Phú, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Go on Trường Chinh to district 1, in district 12. Right on Âu Cơ, Right on Lũy Bán Bích, Pass Thoại Ngọc Hầu, Third Right. Third right. My roommates: Duy Ngo, Đức Khỏe, Võ Thanh Phương. I wrote that this was my new address as of Thursday, the 3rd of October, 2013, that is ICT Saigon time and 10:07 AM PST, Friday. But I'm not sure which day I moved to Tan Phu, specifically. Maybe late in September or early in October. I wrote to Joy Sanchez saying that my rent here was $10 monthly.

2013-10-02 - Wednesday - 06:57 AM - My Facebook Status Comment - Joey to Oatmeal: "Why did the chicken cross the road? To get away from me. To get away from all of these questions."

Thanh Binh District Room
"2013-05-02 - Thursday - 191/37b Võ Duy Ninh, phường 22; Quận Bình Thạnh, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Asia." I moved into this address in May of 2013. This is what I wrote in an email to myself, 2013-10-07; 05:41 AM.
Thu Duc English
2013-10-08 - Tuesday - I wrote this out for my students in an adult business English class I began teaching in October: "Name _______________ Date ___________ Mood ____________________.

Back on the 24th of September, at 05:39 AM, Nong emailed me concerning Thu Duc English: "Dear Joey: Today, you do not teach my children because we have not arranged time to teach them, I must tell you before you came here. We will notify you late when I was ready. The class study English, it still begin from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm with the name's topic : restaunrant, when you have already finished it, you can received your money and go home. Hihi. Thank you very much. If I have any new information, I will notify you right now. Best regard, Nong." I responded: "Can you print out this paper in the attachment below? The file is called food.PDF. I have this paper that the adult class can look at. It has fill-in-the-blanks for "Restaurant" words. Can you get a projector? So, I can show you different websites, videos, pictures, books, worksheets, papers, games, song, and different things that can help people get better at English. When you read my emails, this helps with your reading skills. Will there be a children class tomorrow? Will there normally be a children class on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Thursdays, like next week? Are the children busy tonight? Maybe you guys are busy tonight. Do you want to re-schedule today's children class for Saturday to make up for no children class today? Below is hand-out for the adult class. You can make copies of this paper from the file below in the attachment. We can learn different words and learn about what people say and do at restaurants. People say things like, "Can I take your order..." Tell me what you think about this hand-out." On October 24th, at 03:02 AM: I added in that email conversation: "You need more patience."
2013-10-10 - Thursday - 12:46 AM - Agape's Ron Clark: "A note for those concerned about health care. I have heard that there are some serious concerns and horror stories out there in light of the changes from our government health care. I don't believe people are exaggerating and that I worry about some of the struggles people will face with this system. I can only speak for my family but here is a personal experience we are facing...." Me: "People should have the freedom to choose what kind of health care they get. People should never be forced into doing certain things. People should not be punished for not doing certain things. We should not be punished for making more money than others. Businesses should not be punished for expanding. Sometimes, businesses can provide health-care for their employees, that as long as they are not being punished too severely, as in taxed or other like regulations."
Breaking Bad Dream
2013-10-15 - Tuesday - 05:46 PM - I blogged: "Me and Matthew Matthew Kurtz were touring the United States on a hot New Mexico Day in his van. As I was in the back making meth, I noticed that we were running out of gas. I tipped a can of gas into the gas receiver which is located inside of the van. Later, I noticed that it was overflowing. I put too much gas in it. As quick as I could, I grabbed the can of gas to save the day. Later, I started noticing small fires in the wood which is situated inside the ant-like metal frame. This van had an external skeleton like ants. Inside of it was burnable wood. Like water leaks, as I tried suffocating the little fires, more would appear. Eventually, I told Matt who was driving. It felt like the end of the world. Somehow, Matt brought me back down to earth and reality, he calmed me down, with the following words, "Joey Arnold, Mr. Original Oatmeal, this is just a dream. Wake up and just make sure you don't do this in real-life with my real van the next time we meet or there will be Hell to pay." At that moment, I was kind of like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. I started tapping my slippers with the magic words, "There's no place like home." Other than a few minor Breaking Bad details, this was the dream I just had here in the Tan Phu District of Saigon, Vietnam Asia: 2013 October 16th Wednesday 7 AM ICT. I just woke up. I had this dream a few minutes ago. It is 7:40 AM now. I really wanted to stop the fires in the dream. I did not want to wake up. I wanted to gain the almost real-life on the job training which may allow me to learn from mistake and to better prepare myself for zombies in the Walking Dead."
2013-10-17 - Thursday - 10:20 PM - I posted on my blog a Breaking Bad recap video from YouTube which was later removed either by the uploader or possibly by YouTube.
2013-10-19 - Saturday - I met Hoa Mặt Trời.
2013-10-20 - Sunday - 06:53 AM - I am at your Indie Cafe right now. I like your cafe; address: 220/58 Lê Văn Sỹ, 14, Quận 3, HCM. 02:21 AM: I met Cathy Kathryn Minh Minh Tú . I emailed her: "In Case I forget, I met you today at the Leaf Pagoda. Here is my phone number below. My contact information is below. You can call me. You can text me. Let me know how life is. If you need anything, let me know. You can SMS Text Message and write to me. You can find me. You can talk to me. "
Risk in Investments
2013-10-20 - Sunday - 08:31 PM - I had a debate with Nhan Hong T. I wrote: " Nhan Hong T is clearly missing the bigger picture. Investments must endure risks. Investment must suffer temporary lost in order to reap long-term benefits from eternal perspective over the unseen horizons of a promised utopia for all those willing to sacrifice their tradition for something better." Nhan: "So spend your 85,000 for the Coffeeshop! I say the places that charge you rip-offs. You can go to places you don't have to pay anything instead. It's up to you, if you want those places then don't raise any questions about being charged."
Drink & Talk English Speaking Club
2013-10-21 - Monday - 06:12 PM - I wrote the following on my blog: "Luis Casanova "KICKED ME OUT" of the Drink&Talk English Speaking Club, which lacks native American English Speakers. Luis says that I must pay money to go to the club. Luis said that normal foreigners get to attend for free. However, Joey Arnold, theOriginal Oatmeal, can't. He says that I am a trouble-maker. Why? Am I a trouble maker for starting the Oatmeal English? Am I bad at English? Am I a terrorist for engineering Mea Omnia? Am I Satanist for initiating Ironic Mystic, Restore Main Street, Incredible Inspiration? Luis says that they appreciate foreigners. However, they do not seem to appreciate me. Plus, I never see foreigners at their club. They want to ban their only foreigner. Is it because I am American from the United States? Luis Casanova wrote, and I quote: "Dear Joey, As a leader of Drink&Talk English Speaking Club, I would like to say something so that you can understand clearly my point of view. We do appreciate all of foreigners who can come and support us. If those people are friendly, active, helpful, positive thinking, we always encourage them to come and do not charge fees for sure. We are not only want to help our customers to improve their English speaking skill, we want to help them to get the positive point of view as well. Obviously, you are not the one who can help us on this. So, even though you are such a trouble maker foreigner, we will always try to treat you well as other customers. Once again, I have to say NO with your request about none-charging. Thank you so much and have a great day. Regards, Luis." Plus, Marshall wrote, "[Marshall] The club's fee is just 5.000VND man, plus to your bill of meals and drink that you'd ordered. We do not abuse anybody. I did not force you to pay the money. It is the common thing that everyone else know. I do hope that you understand this. If you're looking for a place where you get paid to speak English, please seek schools, English centers, and go on... We are the English Speaking Club, not the English Teaching School, we create the environment for people to talk to eachother by English. That is the "DEMAND" that people are looking for, we just simply give out the "SUPPLY". And please, sir, you yourself call foreigners "aliens", we do not. We call them "friends". We don't want to "hook" people up like fish, 'cause they are human, not fish. If you want to "hook" them up, please stop doing it under our name. The warm and welcoming environment are which keep the people stay with the club. Sincerely, Marshall." The daily club fee for each customer is 5.000 dongs. By the way, if you do not order a drink, the fee is 15.000 VND. Plus, I am not a customer. I do not need to practice English. Vietnamese people are charged because they are working on their English. Do I look like I need to work on my English? There are some contradiction in what they are saying, in their logic, their reasoning, in how they see the world. You should not abuse foreigners like this. They are trying to deny it. Yet, they are misinterpreting me. I am being misunderstood. They ran off with my face."
Don't Mess With Drink & Talk
2013-10-21 - Monday - 10:32 PM - Trà Tươi wrote to me on Facebook: "yo oatmeal, what is the point you are trying to make here? 1- We're running real deal, a profitable business, not charity. 2- What we are selling is not lesson but environment.An English speaking environment. We don't want to be racist, so we apply the same so called "club fee" to every human being. 3- We know how to run our business, so take care of your own business first. I mean find a real job. 4- Hope that part on which your destiny lies won't cross mine. Or any of us."
2013-10-22 - Tuesday - I got a message from English Rain. I taught English with that Vietnamese man in Q.Tan Phu a few times.

2013-10-24 - Thursday - 04:00 PM ICT - I wrote the following: "10:45 AM: At a cafe in the Phu Nhuan District: We talked about how people hate my spam on the internet. He wants to help me when he can.

So sometimes I can't understand what u say. U don't be sad me ? hihi." 10:24 PM: me: "I am not sad. Listening is hard. Are we working for an American English program?"
2013-10-25 - Friday - 01:42 AM - I replied on Fulton Hawk's Facebook status: "In Vietnam, if a girl saw a guy wear this shirt, they may just say, and I quote, "Hot Boy." Even when people may only know a few words, they still manage to memorize how to say "Hot Boy" and "Hot Girl" and "Beautiful" and they like to say things like "I'm Number One, You're Number Two." This shirt design is Number One."
2013-10-27 - Sunday - 10:23 PM: I emailed myself: "Suki Yuki Eye: Phuong Dung Nguyen: 413/13a Nguyễn Kiệm, P.9, Q.Phú Nhuận; cell: 090-806-6693. I met YukiEye through Toby Trung Thanh Bui.
