Siem Reap, Cambodia Part 2 Sunset Lake Tour

I was extremely hesitant about going on this tour. It was scheduled from 3:30 PM to 7:30 PM, and sounded absolutely wonderful, but knowing how Southeast Asians are with respect to timeliness, and the fact that I had a flight at 10:30 PM, it felt like a gamble. I couldn't have been more grateful that … Continue reading Siem Reap, Cambodia Part 2 Sunset Lake Tour

Roda’s Critter Connection — Carpe Diem

While exploring Angkor Wat and its surrounding temples recently, I was truly mesmerized by the absolutely gorgeous architecture, dilapidated, but yet so profound, and so breathtaking. Prior to my trip, I thought to myself that it would be cool to possibly meet a cute girl in one of my tour groups. If you haven't noticed … Continue reading Roda’s Critter Connection — Carpe Diem

My Thoughts on 2017 and Dreams of 2018

2017 has definitely been one of the best years of my life. It was very much needed as 2016 was by far the worst year of my life. I was broken in so many ways during 2016. This year I finally transitioned out of poker, and became an English teacher. Part of me had always … Continue reading My Thoughts on 2017 and Dreams of 2018

Conversation With Myself Part 6 I Just Feel Like Writing

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nt2rQeVmLw Sherif: I just feel like Writing. Pharaoh: But not poetry, or we wouldn't be having another one of these would we? Sherif: The veil of poetry has gotten somewhat old, I haven't particularly been in a poetic mood lately. I have several poems in drafts I could post right now, but none of them … Continue reading Conversation With Myself Part 6 I Just Feel Like Writing

Faith in Continuity

Despite the fact that WordPress is an extremely phony community for the most part, many people presenting their most authentic selves, with the hopes of being understood, being heard, but in return, likely skimming through others work, clicking 'like' without even reading, desperately following as many blogs as possible for self promotion, and leaving the … Continue reading Faith in Continuity

Dreams Of Phuket

I've been waiting a long time for this moment. I've just woken up to finish the last of my packing, and I will be heading to the airport to return to Phuket soon. When I left in May, I felt that I had a lot of unfinished business in Phuket. I hated my job at … Continue reading Dreams Of Phuket

Hellooooo Teacher Sherif Part 2

Thursdays and Fridays are typically overtime, so unless any of my regular students want to reschedule one of their lessons, its usually all trial lessons or interest classes. Since I'm currently free, but just need to … Continue reading Hellooooo Teacher Sherif Part 2

My 26th Birthday Thoughts

Until yesterday, my last post talked about how I now am doing online teaching English with DadaABC and am loving it. You can read about it in detail here. Its the last month of the summer, and there are all sorts of extra hours available before the kids go back to school, so I decided … Continue reading My 26th Birthday Thoughts

Hellooo Teacher Sherif!

Its now been 6 weeks since I have started working for DadaABC. Before I started, I had a feeling I would make a decent teacher. Although I hadn't had much experience with kids, I would describe myself as very silly and quirky, and a massive goober. I love to sing my heart out at karaoke … Continue reading Hellooo Teacher Sherif!
