In a very official and goosebump-ey fashion, we raised our right hands and recited the oath that more than 5,000 others in Thailand have taken before us.
Just like that, we found ourselves in the final week of PST. WHOA!
We had a whole plan of how we wanted things to work that afternoon, but quickly realized we should just go with the flow and let things happen as they do. As all this was going on, I coined our project’s tagline - “just roll with it”!
Our 30 hours in Bangkok would not only be our first taste of freedom, but it'd also be our first opportunity to show the world our knees and shoulders!
The seventh week of PST was a bittersweet one, as we said goodbye to our practicum classes. Well, sort of.
...for all my loyal blog readers who have been wondering where I sleep and how I do laundry, here it is - the grandiose tour of my homestay house!
When I look back at how far we’ve come, I’m so proud of our accomplishments and very excited for what lies ahead, but at the same time I am trying to slow down and take each moment and each day as they come.
Never have I ever been more excited about a block of sharp cheddar!
All in all, those two afternoons with 28 smiling faces was the perfect reminder as to why I signed up for this crazy ride in the first place.
Cafe Luz came to the rescue, proving that good coffee, good chocolate and good company are the best cure for a hard day.
The debriefing was emotional because spending a night with strange people in a strange house is overwhelming and hilarious because some people were put to bed at 6:30pm while others (myself included) struggled to figure out how to shower and/or brush our teeth.
All good things must come to an end, including the PC Thailand 129’s stay at the Golden Dragon. After ten days at the hotel, many of us were excited to move on to bigger and brighter experiences, most notably the move to our host families.
