2015, July

I lived at Old Ink. I taught Lego Mark some English in Vietnam. I wrote about making excuses and people got mad. I taught at the 23/9 Park. Starting Over: I wanted to live in Oklahoma with Rick in the early 2000's. Oprah Joey: You get a like and you get a like. Everybody gets Free Likes. Dictionary: Learning Vietnamese Pictures.

Vietnam Banned Oatmeal

2015-07-17 - Friday - 01:14 PM - Miley Temple, on Another side of Vietnam (ASOV), asked: "Why was Joey Arnold banned? Actually, that was in Expats HCMC. Marshall The Anımal of the Drink & Talk Club wrote: "I had a chance to talk to Joey before. He (in real life) is not so disturbing like he (on the internet). But sooner or later the needle would poke out of the bag, and you will see the true face of his. He came to our Drink&Talk English club, and bragging about how he could teach English for free, and of course it's a nice thing to do, but he used our place, our room, our time while the club is running to do his business, that I don't like one bit. When we talked to him, he got on our page and said that (this is what I understand from him) we don't like him and threaten him (yes I did because I'm not really a nice guy when probs started to show) and kicked him out of the club. All we asked is that do your business elsewhere, this is our club, we come here to talk, not for you to come here to teach. And it goes on, not only in our club, but Couchsurfing and other places, as well as Expat. Me, personally, I would beat the shit out of him the moment I saw him on the street of Saigon." Jason Allain: "This is a tread ? Why are the trees green, why is water wet and why is fish sauce unpalatable ? Because that's how God wants it...." Jake Houseago: "because this is an expat forum. not a place to tolerate random people that spam and cause major irritation to real expats." Peter Cornish: "Because he looks weird and people feel better about themselves by being nasty to him." David Carroll: "He's in here. Just in another form. "Miley", is that you Joey? wink emoticon." Fergal McGee: "Say what u want, he is a pr king." Miley Temple Jake Houseago: "Joey Arnold is a fake expat?" Michael Hardy: "I'm with Jake!" Nick Jones: "Wasn't it entertaining?" Why - Part 13. Why 21.

Making Excuses

2015-07-30 - Thursday - 10:46 PM - Blogspot - 09:07 AM - Facebook - 109 Likes - 30 Comments - 6 Shares - I wrote: "My students cancelled class because it was raining. I was sad because they might be making excuses :(
Punctuality means "Arriving to appointments on time (in time)." Some students depend on others. One student is about twenty years old (20) but only goes places with her mother. She says she is only a child, but I told her that she is an adult, not a kid. She does not have a motor bike. Her mother is like a helicopter parent, which means the mother cares :)
But maybe the mother cares too much. As parents, we have to help our kids but we should not help too much. We should give children freedom but maybe not too much freedom. We need some kind of healthy balance. As children, we should do our best to listen & obey our parents as much as we can. However, we also need to find our own way in life, especially since our parents may not always be around for us in the future, which means we need to begin learning how to be individuals with independence :( :)
But independence must be learned & experienced. As we grow up, we have to learn how to do things without the help of our parents or the help of others. We should try our best to make our dreams come true. We should try our best to minimize excuses or reasons for absents, tardiness, procrastination, failures, distractions, retreats, alterations, & apathy."

Kim Liên replied: "Love you." Tươi Vũ commented: "Be punctual! Yes, Saigon has 2 main seasons, dry and rain, so if the raining is the reason for being late, it could be 6 months to be late."

Listen to native English speakers on the radio, in the movies, & at the 23/9 Park near the Ben Thanh Market, Q.1, TP.HCM. Listen & repeat. Listen, think a little, & debate. Don't just learn English. Learn English while learning other things as well. Keep a daily English journal. Be patient with English. When you make mistakes, write it down in your journal. If you're not much of a writer, then at least write down titles or outlines to what you learn or talk about in English. If you don't write it down, you may forget it eventually. You can revisit what you write in the future to gain insight. Make friends with foreigners as well

Remember that practice makes perfect. No pain, no gain. If you don't see me today, I can't save you any money. Do the best you can with what you have. Writers are first readers. Never let go. Keep going. English is not just a language but also a multicultural experience
Learn English while learning other subjects like history, science, math, psychology, sociology, business, tourism, marketing, finance, accounting, education, teaching, careers, trades, music, art, medicine, technology, oatmeal, life, love, hope, dreams, urban legends, geography, health, etc....
Have fun when learning English. Use it daily. Sing it. Talk it. Write it. Hear it. Think it. Take it. Use it. Like it. Love it. Dance it. Feel it. Believe it. Take it. Sleep on it. Know it. Understand it. Draw it. Hit it. Punch it. Step on it. Find it. Conquer it. Defeat it. Kill it. Get it. Hold it. Pass it. Share it. Sell it. Buy it. Eat it."

Conversation between me and Barbie Anna.


2015-07-31 - Friday - 10:05 PM - Blogspot - I talked about Making Excuses (from yesterday) with Lego Mark Zuck Lee. Mark: "7 Rings for the drawf. 9 rings for the man cause man's thirst of power." Me: "dwarf, not drawf." I posted this link to Mark to an article about ways Vietnam ruined America. Then I wrote: "Anna said I'm not a teacher.... she told me many times she is my friend, not student... these 2 years, she has said that." Mark: "I guess she wants you to be more than a teacher." Me: "i think she does not respect me as a teacher. she got engaged. i am a teacher first and a friend second. or maybe she got married. yes, i am her friend, but not only her friend. want to see me?" Mark: "not now. I am doing my marketing strategy for lego and english." Then I shared pictures of Anna. Mark replied: "Who is that ? Is that Anna ?" Me: "Yes, this is Anna, AKA Thien An... Anna says we are friends. She says she helps me for fun & for free & not because I teach her English. She said this many times these past two years that she helps because she is a good person. I am like a beggar to Anna." Mark: "Ha ha. Like a beggar. Hello Beggar Joey !" Me: "She wrote, "You are not my teacher. You are my friend that helps me study English."" Mark: "ha ha. It's the same but Different way to say." Me: "True. Now, she is threatening me. She is insulting me because I wrote about her indirectly on my Facebook about how she cancelled class because of the rain; but I didn't mention her name in the post & therefore was not actually insulting her."
