I moved out of my Old Ink apartment. Was told I had to because they were selling that house. I moved back into the Saigon Backpackers Hostel. But then some foreigner men got me kicked out. My students were helping me look for a new apartment. Began sleeping at Anh Coffee at night.
I continued teaching FYG English classes in District 1 and AAA Spa English at the 23/9 park in November 2015. I continued teaching English for free at the park. Continued meeting new people.
I think Anna Barbie or somebody referenced a terrorist attack in Paris which Facebook promoted to get people to just pray for the victims as opposed to looking into Jihadism. Mom emailed me about speakers. Kathy Bike wrote to me again.
