on an interesting note I have packed up my tent and am living in the storeroom above the restaurant where I work. It's a pretty good deal since I dont have a commute to work and I get free wi-fi and satellite tv. on the downside I dont have the fresh air and the relative peace and tranquility that you get when camping in nature. Tranquility is nice I suppose but after awhile you get tired of pulling nettles out of the crack of your ass so I guess its a good thing that I am indoors.
Im is pretty pumped about me coming back and she is already packing her bags and getting ready to meet up with me in bangkok. I talked to her last night and she said she can wait 4 months but 5 months is too much so i need to get back NOW. she's a funny girl with her broken english and perverse sense of humor so i'm happy that she has waited around for my sorry ass. I now only have 14 days left before I get on the plane back to asia and i cannot wait to be finished with alaska and get back with Im.
Upon my arrival in Thailand I am finally undertaking my instructor course for scuba diving (IDC). I have been putting this off for a few years both because of the cost and because I wasnt sure I was ready to make the commitment towards an actual career in scuba diving but I have sat down and figured out that this is the right move for me at this juncture in my life since I have the money and have the confidence and love of diving to make me a good instructor. the course costs quite a bit of cash but I also get quite the pay boost and am much more hireable so it should pay itself off in a month or two and with any luck I may be able to skip my yearly trip to alaska in the near future and live a life of sun and scuba year around. cross your fingers for me cuz i need all the luck i can get
