2015, October

in j •  6 months ago  (edited)

My last full month at my last apartment in Vietnam at the Old Ink of Saigon. I moved out early in November. Our FYG English Classes started back up again in October 2015. I would email my students our class notes after each session. The biggest thing that happened in October was reuniting with FYG for our classes. So, we began interviewing students in order to assign them with suitable classes. So, I was teaching I think four classes, Starters, Beginners, Medium, and High. My favorite class and group of students were my High group and we even went drinking and eating at like a cafe for like an English party a few times. My High class invited me a few times and it was fun. I was living in Vietnam from 2012-2017. I'm from the USA, born in 1985. I was teaching with FYG from 2013-2016.

HANOI 2013

2015-10-28 - Wednesday - 06:33 AM PST - 08:02 PM ICT Oct 28 Facebook Time - Tran Duc Hieu messaged me: "How are you, Joey?" I first met him in January 2013. I moved to Vietnam in 2012. In 2013, Yoga Anna helped me moved to Hanoi for like the last two weeks of January 2015 and a bit of the first week or so of February. So for like two of the last weeks of January, approximately, I stayed at the apartment room of I think Tran Duc Hieu and his brother. I think it was two weeks or close to that amount of time. In February, I was in Hoa Binh for four days and Thanh Hoa for six days. Then I moved to Saigon where I lived until 2017. After that, returned to the USA.

HAVE TO MOVE

2015-10-28 - Wednesday - 11:52 PM - I emailed FYG & some of my students: "I think I have to move.​" Around this time, my Old Ink landlord lady told me I had to leave as she was moving and leasing or renting out or selling the building, the house, to a new family that was set to move in about a week or so. So, I originally moved in on Friday, the tenth of October of 2014. Rent was due by the 10th, monthly. So, I had to move out by like the 10th of November of 2015, apx. So, I basically did. FYG Joseph helped me move my luggage to the new FYG English classroom. But cops didn't let me sleep there or so I was told. So, I rented a bed at the Saigon Backpacker's Hostel which I stayed at back in April 2013. At the same time, in Nov, I think Harry Nguyen, my students, and others were helping me look for a new apartment.
