2016, FebruarysteemCreated with Sketch.

in j •  5 months ago 

Began to stay at Hostel Anna Barbie. We continued trying to extend my visa. Anna English started around February 2016. We probably went to Dalat in February or March for Tet. People go home for Tet (New Years). Classes discontinues for a few weeks. Near the end of February, I begin being absent to FYG English, AAA Spa English, and possibly other classes mostly due to hostel policies. Anna's mom, Loan, said to me that she wanted to host me. But they had to sneak me in and out of the house as they lived across the street from cops and/or the friends of the police. That meant being unable to go to class. I ended up not saying anything to some of my classes until weeks or months later. I probably could have said something but I felt very uncertain for a bunch of reasons. Long story. More on that later.

Missionary

2016-02-10 - Wednesday - 08:12 AM - Email - Larry: "I noticed that you said " like a missionary". Could this mean you need to actually become an ordained minister? Is there a scholarship available (on line and possibly free of charge)?? Perhaps, as a minister and through the right organization your visa problems could be resolved (with some help from/through a more established system)???" Good advice.

2009-06-14 Sunday 1 PM: pizza lunch with my Agape church at Bellagios Pizza, 1742 SW Jefferson, Portland, Oregon, USA. http://GimmeGrub.com. Saw the following people or church people: Karissa (not Sparkle), Lorence who plays soccer & is black, Gerry or Jerry, Geraldine who thanked me for a comment I made during the service I think; also Nicole who I helped during children church that day. In the morning, also saw pastor Ron Clark, Whitney, maybe a Kathy who has Bible studies at 8334 N. Pacific, PDX; , Eddie, Allen or Allan (not my cousin), Kyle who's wife died I he said (not my neighbor Kyle Vanderzanden from my childhood years). When I was living at 414

I said the latter sounds more negative. But I probably should have given a better definition that. Thanh Thủy: "Tôi yêu em đến chết." Patty Hernandez of Nicaragua: "Te amo hasta la muerte. O t amo a morir..." Majd Eddin Al Hammoud of England: "بحبك مووت This is Arabic."

DNA

2016-02-25 - Thursday - 12:22 AM - Email conversation spanning about a day - I asked mom about what are blood type and DNA were. Mom said we shouldn't as the info could be used against us. I then asked if we should use money or not. Larry said I should make a viral YouTube video about that. I was emailing my 14 year old student. She was my student like in 2015 and a bit early in 2016. But then, class discontinued for a few months and then started again during the summer for a few more months or less and then ended.
